Half a year ago we can't buy RTX cards, but NVIDIA launches the new RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti

RTX 380 Ti

In this surreal era in which we live, there has been no stock of graphics cards in stores for months, but manufacturers keep launching new models. Today it's the turn of the most powerful card in history: RTX 3080 Ti, as well as the RTX 3070Ti.

Computex 2021is being celebrated these days, so we're seeing a fair amount of new PC hardware.

It is strange to see NVIDIA present its new graphics cards RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti when for 6 months there is no stock in stores, and the ones that exist, speculators sell them at a gold price.

Without going any further, the only card in stock right now on Amazon is an RTX 3080 whose RRP is 720 euros, but they sell it to you for 3,406 euros. You can also buy an RTX 3070, whose RRP is 520 euros, for 1,299 euros. This is the way things are in the PC gaming market, completely sunk by the semiconductor crisis, cryptocurrency mining, and speculators.

In this tessitura, NVIDIA presents its most powerful graphics card, the RTX 3080 Ti, with a release date of June 3 at $ 1,199, and the RTX 3070 Ti on June 10, for $ 599. Pure surrealism.

RTX 3080 Ti is the most powerful gaming card in history. It has 2 GB of memory more than the RTX 3080, up to 12 GB of GDDR6X memory, with 20% more performance than the RTX 3080, 50% more than the RTX 2080 Ti, and 200% more than the GTX 1080 Ti.

On a technical level, it has 34 Shader-TFLOPS, 67 RT-TFLOPs, and 273 Tensor-TFLOPS. NVIDIA has offered no further technical data.

It comes with the RTX 3070 Ti, a card designed to outperform AMD's RX 6800 cards, thanks to a 20% performance boost over its predecessor, the RTX 3070, and 50% faster than the RTX 2070 Super.

But this time we have no increase in RAM, and the 8 GB of GDDR6X memory is still very fair if you want to play 4K. That's why NVIDIA focuses it on 2K (1440p) gaming, although yes, with ray tracing and all the graphics options to the maximum.

It achieves a technical performance of 22 Shader-TFLOPS, 42 RT-TFLOPs, and 174 Tensor-TFLOPS.

Both models come with the anti-mining protection that NVIDIA wants to scare away cryptocurrency miners with.

Also announced today are some notebooks equipped with new RTX 3080 GPUs, such as Dell's Alienware x15 and x17.

In addition, NVIDIA has unveiled the new games that support filtering using DLSS artificial intelligence, which manages to triple the fps without losing graphics quality (a privilege of RTX cards). Among them are Red Dead Redemption 2, Doom Eternal, Rainbow Six: Siege, and several others.
