NVIDIA announces GeForce RTX 30 series
NVIDIA today announces its new GeForce RTX 30 series. NVIDIA confirmed that the series based on Ampere architecture are manufactured in Samsung 8nm process technology. The 30 series were announced by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang during a special GeForce live stream.
All GeForce RTX 30 cards feature 2nd Gen Ray Tracing cores and 3rd Generation Tensor Cores and PCIe 4.0 interface.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 – 1499 USD
The model called GeForce RTX 3090 is equipped with GA102-300 GPU, which features 10496 CUDA cores (twice the ALUs of the rumored 5248). This card is paired with 24 GB of GDDR6X memory across a 384-bit interface. The memory is clocked at 19.5 Gbps resulting in 936 GB/s of maximum bandwidth.
Jensen introduced the card by saying how popular the TITAN series has become. The RTX 3090 is a natural extension of the series. The RTX 3090 is a ‘big GPU’ which refers to its actual physical size. This model features a much wider and longer cooler design than RTX 3080.
The RTX 3090 features a boost clock of 1.70 GHz, which translates into 35.7 TFLOPs.
The card was introduced as the world’s first 8K gaming GPU, as this graphics card will allow 8K gaming with RTX ON, DLSS 8K and HDR Shadowplay Enabled.
This model will retain at 1499 USD and it will be available starting from September 24th.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 – 699 USD
The RTX 3080 series will sport GA102-200 GPU with 8704 CUDA cores enabled. Unlike the RTX 3090 model, this card will rely on 10GB GDDR6X memory across a 320-bit bus. This provides a maximum bandwidth of 760 GB/s.
NVIDIA confirmed that the card features a boost clock of 1.71 GHz, which gives a maximum FP32 performance of 29.7 TFLOPs.
The next-generation ’80’ series will retail at 699 USD. It will be available starting from September 17th.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 – 499 USD
The third, and cheapest model, the GeForce RTX 3070 features GA104 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores. It is equipped with a 256-bit memory bus and 8GB GDDR6 (non-X) memory.
With a boost clock of 1.73 GHz, this model will offer up to 20.4 TFLOPs of FP32 performance thanks to dual FP32 throughput.
NVIDIA announced that the GeForce RTX 3070 will cost 499 USD, the card will be available in October (no date was given).
