If enthusiasts were expecting a better chance at getting a GeForce RTX 3070 this morning than with the preceding GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, then you probably already know by now that those hopes were quickly dashed. Online sales for the GeForce RTX 3070 opened up at 9am ET this morning, and retail websites either quickly buckled under pressure or quickly threw up OOS messages. We were monitoring both Best Buy and Newegg minutes prior to 9am, and kept hitting refresh until we saw "Add to Cart" buttons. At Newegg, we briefly saw a number of third-party GeForce RTX 3070 cards available to order, only to quickly see the "Add to Cart" button disappear, or were greeted with server error... Read more...
If you’ve had your eyes on the GeForce RTX 3070 — and we know that many of you probably are after reading the HotHardware review earlier this week — you better have your index finger at the ready this morning. Even though NVIDIA delayed the launch of the GeForce RTX 3070 by two weeks to have ample supply of the cards in the channel for customers, at least one major online retailer isn’t expecting its stock to last very long. Late last night, Newegg tweeted that while it “will have more inventory than previous 30 series launches” on hand, it still anticipates that cards will sell out within minutes. That doesn’t give us much confidence... Read more...
NVIDIA is expanding its line-up of Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series cards today, with the relatively affordable GeForce RTX 3070. Although the card was announced alongside the higher-end GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 during NVIDIA’s GeForce Event hosted by CEO Jensun Huang last month, and was originally due to be arrive a bit sooner, NVIDIA decided to hold off on the official launch until its partners could ramp production and ensure shelves were adequately stocked upon launch. The more powerful flagship GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 sold out in a blink the moment they became available. While we’re sure NVIDIA would love for the GeForce RTX 3070 to sell just as quickly (what company... Read more...
Gaming enthusiasts around the globe are waiting to see what AMD has up its sleeves with the Radeon RX 6000 family of graphics cards. But it's not just enthusiasts that are eager to see what AMD has in store; long-time rival NVIDIA is likely looking to adjust its product strategy -- if necessary -- to counter whatever is announced this week. Such is the case with a new report from hardware sleuth/leaker kopite7kimii, who has suggested that NVIDIA is working on a new version of the GA102 GPU that would slot in between the GeForce RTX 3070 and the GeForce RTX 3080. This would of course either be the long-rumored GeForce RTX 3070 Ti/Super. More specifically, as we mentioned last week,... Read more...
Are gamers' wishes about to come true? It's hard to be certain, but reports coming out of Japan confirm that NVIDIA has been able to get a grip on GeForce RTX 3070 GPU production, and there should be greater inventory available at launch than its higher-end GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 counterparts. The news comes from PC Watch (first picked up by WCCFTech), which has been monitoring retail outlets located at the Akihabara shopping district in Tokyo. Multiple retailers confirmed that inventory will be “considerably larger” than NVIDIA's previous two Ampere launches. However, as it is rightfully pointed out, there is no indication as to whether this refers... Read more...
We're just a week away from the official launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3070 graphics cards, which is its new mainstream GPU that promises previous generation "flagship" GeForce RTX 2080 Ti performance at the $499 price point. Given how close we are to retail availability, it was inevitable that performance benchmarks would start leaking out, and we have two results to share with you this morning. The first comes from the popular Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) benchmark, which shows the GeForce RTX 3070 duking it out with its big brother, the $699 GeForce RTX 3080. In the Crazy 1080p DX12 benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3070 was pegged at 94 fps, making it around 13 percent slower than... Read more...
You would have better luck trying to acquire a bucket of plutonium than getting your hands on a GeForce RTX 3080 or GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card right now, and it would probably be cheaper (compared to what scalpers are asking for these cards). But unless you have a flux capacitor, what are you going to do with plutonium? Get arrested, that's what. Fortunately, EVGA has come to the rescue with a way to reserve a GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card that is both fair and, to quote the old Guinness commercials, brilliant! It is a queue-based notification system, whereby you select an out-of-stock card you want, and as more inventory comes in, EVGA will notify users in the order they requested... Read more...
Let's not kid ourselves, NVIDIA could delay the GeForce RTX 3070 launch by a month instead of two weeks, as it has done, and eager gamers will still gobble up every last bit of inventory as soon as they become available. That is my prediction, anyway. Nevertheless, for those hoping to score one on launch day, a leaked photo of a tray of GPUs undergoing validation and bound for the GeForce RTX 3070 is a welcome sight. In theory, anyway, but I will go ahead and dash that hope as well in just a moment. First let's talk about the situation we find ourselves in. NVIDIA launched its beastly GeForce RTX 3080 ($699) first, and between the bots, scalpers, and insatiable demand by gamers wanting a piece... Read more...
You may have noticed that NVIDIA lists a new release date for the GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition on its website. Instead of launching to retail on October 15, as originally scheduled, it will now find its way to market on October 29. That is the new date for all GeForce RTX 3070 cards, including both its own Founders Edition model and custom variants by its add-in board partners. Why the delay? According to NVIDIA, it was a couple more weeks to bolster supply, given how rabid the demand was for the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090. Both of those cards sold out pretty much immediately, leading to ridiculous prices at places like eBay where scalpers hoped to cash in on the craze. It also... Read more...
For the past few weeks, the gaming community has been in the middle of Ampere mania, as NVIDIA released both its GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 to the public (although availability was an issue for most people). It’s understandable that supplies would be tight, however, considering that the GeForce RTX 3080 delivers roughly twice the performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 at the $699 price point. While NVIDIA clearly has its eye on the [desktop] ball at the moment, we know that laptop variants of Ampere GPUs will eventually be incoming. Thankfully, today we’re getting our first alleged look at a qualification sample for the GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile courtesy of @9550pro... Read more...
Yesterday, we brought you news that a 20GB version of the GeForce RTX 3080 is likely on the way, doubling the amount of onboard GDDR6X that is in currently-shipping cards. The news came straight from the horse's mouth, NVIDIA, via an Ampere GA102 GPU architecture whitepaper. Now we're getting further confirmation via one of NVIDIA's trusted OEM partners: Gigabyte. The company is currently running a promotion, which was first spotted by Videocardz, where those that purchase a GeForce RTX 3080 card can get a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion by entering in their purchase details and device serial number on its website. This is pretty standard fare for graphics card manufacturers, but... Read more...
The recently announced GeForce RTX 3070 will launch to retail on October 15, 2020, at precisely 6:00 am PT (9:00 am ET), NVIDIA has announced. Previously, NVIDIA only said the card would be out in October, but had not mentioned an exact date (or time). Now it has, and it is not a coincidence that availability comes almost two weeks before AMD plans to announce its Radeon RX 6000 series. A lot of PC gamers will be upgrading their GPUs this year. Anticipation is high for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 lineup, particularly the GeForce RTX 3080 (which it is pitching as its flagship consumer card, whereas the GeForce RTX 3090 is primarily intended for creators) and GeForce RTX 3070. Both seemingly offer... Read more...
Earlier this week, we learned about the inevitable expansion of NVIDIA’s new Ampere gaming card lineup at the lower-end. At the time, it was rumored that NVIDIA was cooking up either a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti or a GeForce RTX 3060 Super; we’re now learning that the product will launch with the former name. As we previously reported, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is said to be based on the GA104-200 GPU, and will have a total of 4,864 CUDA cores with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. New details coming in, however, claim that the GPU will feature 152 Tensor cores and 38 RT cores. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 has 5,888 CUDA cores, 184 Tensor cores, and 46 RT cores. We already knew that the... Read more...
Even though none of NVIDIA's newly launched GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards are actually available to buy right now, retailers have begun preparing for when they will be, by going live with product listings. Over on Newegg, for example, there are more than a dozen GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3070 listings. If you are planning to upgrade, you can make things easier by tracking availability with a handy monitoring tool You can do that easy enough through NowInStock.net, a free web service that monitors online retailer sites to see when products come in stock or go up for pre-order. Not just graphics cards or electronics, either, but an assortment of goods—even hand soap. Here are... Read more...
NVIDIA laid down the hammer last week when it announced its Ampere family of gaming cards. Although details of the cards had been rumored for months, the actual generational performance uplift of the three-card family is nothing less than impressive.  During its virtual event, NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 priced at $499, $699, and $1,499 respectively. While the price of the GeForce RTX 3090 is beyond the means of most mainstream gamers, the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 are definitely more approachable. The GeForce 3070 in particular has the potential to be an incredibly popular choice with gamers when it launches next month. Looking... Read more...
NVIDIA held some virtual briefings yesterday to provide some additional color to CEO Jensen Huang’s GeForce RTX 30 series event from earlier this week. There weren’t many significant new announcements made, but a number of the slides Jensen presented were fleshed-out a bit more, with additional details and a few new visuals revealed, that paint a more complete picture of Ampere and the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and RTX 3070. If you haven’t already read our coverage of the launch event, we strongly suggest checking that out. There overview provided will lay the foundation from some of the deeper details presented here – and the pictures of the cards and Jensen’s... Read more...
It is fair to say that as far as launch events go, NVIDIA's high-anticipated GeForce RTX 30 series reveal was a hit. NVIDIA announced a trio of Ampere cards for the consumer sector—GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070—with specs and somewhat pleasantly surprising prices. It also left the door open for some questions, several of which it addressed in a follow-up question and answer session on Reddit. Several members of NVIDIA's community team coordinated with Reddit to make this happen. Questions were posed to the forum on September 1, and then answers were posted the next day, after NVIDIA had a chance to review them and extract information from the appropriate... Read more...
The prevailing fear leading up to the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series was that pricing would get jacked way up, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the GeForce RTX 3070 debut at $499, with NVIDIA claiming it bests a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. On top of that, NVIDIA has announced a GeForce RTX 30 series bundle with some nice extras. Yes, "extras," as in plural. There are precisely two—for a limited time, NVIDIA is gifting a digital download code for Watch Dogs: Legion and including a full year of a GeForce NOW Founders membership to people who purchase a qualifying GeForce RTX 30 series. Watch Dogs: Legion is not out yet, but is slated to release on October 29, 2020. Pricing starts at... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang, just finished hosting a special GeForce webcast that was chock-full of major announcements. Of course, the star of the show was NVIDIA’s brand-new, oft-leaked Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series – which will be available soon -- but a number of additional technologies for gamers and creators were revealed as well, including RTX IO, NVIDIA Reflex, NVIDIA Broadcast, and NVIDIA Omnibus Machina. Needless to say, there’s a lot to cover here; let’s start with the hardware, because we know many of you are eager to see some official GeForce RTX 30 series info, directly from Team Green...

Hey, did you hear? NVIDIA is getting ready to unveil a new generation of GeForce RTX graphics cards, based on its Ampere GPU architecture. That's not a serious question, because if you have even a passing interest in tech, it would be near impossible to avoid all of the leaks and rumors. Here's one more—with a launch now imminent, a leaked press release details what ASUS is planning to unveil tomorrow, on the custom GPU front. Starting at 12:00 pm ET (9:00 am PT) today, NVIDIA will livestream the launch of its GeForce RTX 30 series, on its Twitch channel. The company is expected unveil three SKUs, those being the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, and GeForce RTX 3070. And of course NVIDIA... Read more...
It's been a long time coming, but we're less than 24 hours away from the big launch of NVIDIA's next-generation GeForce RTX 30 Series family of graphics cards, aka Ampere. It's been roughly two years since NVIDIA launched Turing, which at the time were GPU monsters delivering massive gains in performance over their Pascal-based predecessors. Can NVIDIA do it again with Ampere? If you want to find out, NVIDIA will be hosting its virtual launch event today at 12pm EST. At this time, NVIDIA has only provided a link to its Twitch channel as the official way of viewing the stream. It's likely that NVIDIA will also provide a YouTube livestream as well, and we'll update this article with that link if... Read more...
