Last week, NVIDIA officially announced its GeForce RTX 30 Series of graphics cards, which consists of the GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090. Luckily for us, we have the “flagship” GeForce RTX 3080 in our hands right now along with an unboxing video for you to enjoy. As we detailed before the GeForce RTX 30 Series was even revealed (thanks to leaks), the GeForce RTX 3080 uses a push-pull cooling system with a blower exhausting hot air through the PCIe slot (as we’ve typically come to expect). However, there is a second fan on the opposite side of the board that draws air through the actual graphics card and exhausts it on the side... Read more...
NVIDIA is giving its GeForce RTX 3080 top billing as this generation's flagship graphics card for gaming, a designation that could also be applied to the monstrous GeForce RTX 3090, except that part is basically the newest iteration of the Titan RTX (only not named as such). Can the GeForce RTX 3080 handle the flagship spotlight? Some early benchmarks suggest it can, and with aplomb. We will post our own hands-on analysis with benchmarks and observations as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are left to look at two things—NVIDIA's own performance claims, and leaked benchmarks. Speaking to the latter, NVIDIA claims the GeForce RTX 3070 is faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and that... Read more...
War is usually hell, except when we are talking about the GPU wars, of which a new skirmish is about to get underway. Hot on the heels of NVIDIA formally introducing its GeForce RTX 30 series based on Ampere, it is rumored AMD will look to undercut its rivals pricing with the release of its Radeon RX 6000 series, with Big Navi underneath the hood. Let the next-gen battles begin! Before we get to what AMD is cooking up, let's quickly recap NVIDIA's launch. The GPU maker introduced three cards, priced as follows... GeForce RTX 3090 (10,496 CUDA cores, 24GB GDDR6X): $1,499 GeForce RTX 3080 (8,704 CUDA cores, 10GB GDDR6X): $699 GeForce RTX 3070 (5,888 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6): $499 It is an enticing... 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...

We already know that the GeForce RTX 3080 is going to be a performance monster, but just how good will it be in the real world? Well, NVIDIA is giving us a nice taste of what to expect with the first official gameplay footage of the GeForce RTX 3080 running Doom Eternal at 4K resolution. And we should say; this isn’t 4K with just some of the trimmings – this is Doom Eternal running at 4K with the Ultra Nightmare preset. In other words, this is as good as Doom Eternal gets when it comes to image quality and fidelity, and the GeForce RTX 3080 simply slices through the game like a hot knife through butter. We can see the GeForce RTX 3080 hovering around 120 to 160... 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...
In just a few more days, NVIDIA will official lift the wraps on its next-generation GeForce RTX lineup, with Ampere underneath the hood. Now that we are in the home stretch, leaks have shifted to what look like official press renders, from a pair of upcoming Gainward Phoenix Golden Sample cards, with specifications listed for the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080. Assuming these renders are the real deal—and they certainly look like it—they pretty much confirm what the specifications will be on those SKUs, and that NVIDIA will in fact be rolling into next-gen territory with the 'GeForce RTX 3000 series' nomenclature (past rumors had called this into question). So, what do we have... Read more...
We’re still more than a few days away from NVIDIA’s planned unveil for its GeForce RTX 30 Series of Ampere graphics cards, but it appears that one of the company’s OEM partners just couldn’t wait to spill the beans. That fortunate [or unfortunate depending on how you want to look at it] company is Zotac, which leaked its entire lineup consisting of GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards. The first hints of the leak came from momomo_us, who posted a Zotac page with the product names listed, but without any images filled in. Since that time, the floodgates have opened and numerous images of the graphics cards have been discovered. The... Read more...
The big day is just around the corner—on Tuesday, September 1, NVIDIA will hold a GeForce Special Event in which it is expected to reveal all the juicy details about its upcoming GeForce RTX graphics cards, based on Ampere. We have questions, and NVIDIA presumably has answer. Perhaps spoiling some of the surprises, however, supposed specifications of the next-gen stack have leaked out. Of course, there have been a million and one leaks and rumors up to this point already, and not all of them align. In theory, though, the closer we get to launch, the more accurate the information should be. But there's also been chatter that NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang makes decisions at the final hour, so take...

September can't arrive fast enough, at least not for those of use who want to see what exactly NVIDIA will be unveiling for its next round of graphics cards. Here in the home stretch, however, more leaks and rumors continue to flood the web. This time it's a set of certifications at the Korean National Radio Research Agency (RRA) website for what are presumed to printed circuit board (PCB) designs for the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080. NVIDIA has been known to the use the same PCB for multiple graphics card models, depending on which ones they are. In this case, here is what we are looking at...

Ampere is going to be a beast when it arrives in consumer PCs, according to the latest leaked benchmark discovery. Over at 3DMark, there is a private listing for an unnamed NVIDIA graphics card, which is likely a GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3080 of some sort, and it blows a typical GeForce RTX 2080 Ti out of the water. Before we get to the benchmark data, let's talk about Ampere. The next-generation GPU represents NVIDIA's shift to a 7-nanometer node. It already debuted last month in machine learning form (A100), and it is widely expected NVIDIA will launch Ampere in consumer form later this summer, or early fall (August or September-ish). Prominent leak detectives have been sleuthing the... Read more...
Death and taxes are certainties, but if you want to add a third inevitability to the list, it would be this: more Ampere-based GeForce RTX graphics card rumors. Those are going to play out until NVIDIA finally unveils whatever it has up its sleeve. As it were, the latest rumor roundup highlights supposed specifications for the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080. None of the information is verified, and as we have seen in prior generation releases, leaks and rumors are wildly hit or miss. Regardless, a round-up the latest details based on a couple of Twitter posts from known leakers, needs to be met with the usual dose of skepticism as rumors—and particularly those associated with...

Recent images purporting to show the cooling solution for NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards have resulted in a whirlwind of speculation, the latest of which takes a stab at estimating when the new parts will arrive. Assuming those images are real, we could be looking at a September launch. A launch in September could take place even if the images are fake, but the photos potentially add some interesting context to the situation. They manifested on Chiphell a little over a week ago, and show a unique design in which the printed circuit board (PCB) would have a triangular section cut out at one of the ends. The leaked photos also show a dual-fan design, but... Read more...
Another leaked photo of a supposed heatsink design for NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card has surfaced, suggesting that the previously leaked photo was the real deal. Not only that, it is looking increasingly likely that what we saw just a few short days ago is what will end up shipping to consumers, as opposed to being a prototype design. Of course, nothing is set in stone—we are still dealing with leaks and speculation, and even if everything up to this point has been real, NVIDIA could still decide to change things up and go in a different direction. So, there is your multi-layered disclaimer. This newly leaked photo (shown up top) shows a set of heatsinks with the cooling... Read more...
Photographs purporting to show what NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card looks like recently emerged, and whether they are real or not, or perhaps indicative of an early prototype rather than what will be the finished product, we do not know. Either way, a user ran with the images and created some nifty looking renders. To be clear, these are not official renders scraped from some hidden site at NVIDIA or anything like that, but are sort of fan creations. Well, that is assuming Reddit forum member JDSP_ is a fan of NVIDIA and its GeForce products. Regardless, the talented individual took a set of low quality photos that recently appeared, and concocted what could pass for official... Read more...
Over the past 6 months or so, we've been hearing a lot about the next-generation consumer GeForce graphics card family; at least when it comes to rumored specifications. What we know is the cards will be based on NVIDIA's Ampere GPU architecture and will allegedly fall under the GeForce RTX 30 naming scheme. What we haven't seen until today, however, are images of the actual cards. But now that we're getting closer to the rumored 2H 2020 launch window, photos of the supposed flagship GeForce RTX 3080 have leaked out. The images show a rather odd design with two cooling fans. However, the cooing fans are not situated on the same side of the PCB, as is typically the case with modern... Read more...
The month of March is cruising right along, and as more time passes, we get increasingly closer to NVIDIA's next-gen GPU launch. Otherwise known as Ampere (unless NVIDIA announces a different name for the consumer variant), the bulk of information out there right now is all related to leaks and rumors, and here is another one for the growing pile. According to YouTube channel Moore's Law Is Dead, an engineering sample of a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti sports a cooling shroud that is similar to the Founders Edition models of the GeForce RTX 20 series, but with three cooling fans and less screws on the back of the card. Assuming the YouTuber is now blowing smoke up our rear ends (and we're not ruling that... Read more...
