Nvidia launches new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs & here are all the prices, specifications & models
Nvidia has unveiled the first of its next generation of GPUs, the GeForce RTX 30 series, promising the greatest ever generational performance leap for gaming GPUs in the company's history.
The new GPU family is said to offer nearly twice the performance and power efficiency of the GeForce RTX 20 series. Along with the hardware, Nvidia has also introduced three new software features for gamers.
A new generation of GPUs is here to bring on the future of gaming
Nvidia will sell its own Founders Edition graphics cards, along with partners including Asus, Gigabyte, Zotac, MSI, Galax, Palit, PNY, EVGA, Gainward, and Innovision 3D. Other companies will also offer custom-designed cards with their own coolers and software enhancements.
In India, the GeForce RTX 3070 will be priced at Rs. 51,000 ($499 in the USA); the GeForce RTX 3080 will cost Rs. 71,000 ($699 in the USA), and the new flagship GeForce RTX 3090 will sell for a whopping Rs. 1,52,000 ($1,499 in the USA).
The new flagship is the GeForce RTX 3090, or “big ferocious GPU”, as Nvidia is calling it. It features a triple-slot cooler with a new dual-axial airflow design that positions one fan on the front and another on the rear, which the company says makes it 10x quieter and up to 30 degrees cooler than current designs.
Nvidia claims that the new GeForce RTX 3070 is 60 percent faster on average than the GeForce RTX 2070, and is suitable for 1440p as well as 4K gaming. That makes it faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti but costs less than half as much.
The GeForce RTX 3080 is billed as the “ultimate gaming GPU” and is twice as fast as the GeForce RTX 2080 and will be matched with 10GB of 19Gbps GDDR6X RAM.
