After months and months of waiting and anticipation, finally new Nvidia RTX 30 series has been unveiled.
We talked about Ampere technology in my past blogs, if you haven’t read it, click here. We saw that Ampere architecture is very powerful than Turing architecture, so just imagine how much powerful the new graphics card will be. CEO of NVIDIA Jensen Huang stated that “Today’s launch of NVIDIA Ampere GPUs is a giant step into the future” and also stated that “The work of thousands of engineering years, the GeForce RTX 30 series delivers our greatest generational leap ever. NVIDIA RTX fuses programmable shading, ray tracing and AI for developers to create entirely new worlds. Twenty years from now, we’ll look back and realize that the future of gaming started here.”
Let’s again see what is ampere architecture in brief.
What is Ampere Architecture
Ampere is the codename for a graphics processing unit microarchitecture developed by Nvidia as the successor to the Volta architecture, officially announced on May 14, 2020. It is named after French mathematician and physicist André-Marie Ampère.

The New NVIDIA RTX 30 series
The new graphics card brings serious performance boost. RTX 30 is the 2nd Generation RTX series.
RTX 30 series brings enhanced Ray-Tracing (it is a rendering technique that creates realistic lighting effects) and also enhanced AI Performance. And why CEO told that it is a breakthrough because these cards are serious business and one proof is that it promises to achieve 60FPS on 8k resolution. Just imagine 60FPS on 8k, how powerful the card is. 8k is like 4 times the pixels of 4K and 16 times the pixels of 1080p.
3 graphics card in total has been unveiled. They are:-
- RTX 3070:–
This graphics card is priced at $499 making it cheapest in the 30 series. It comes with 5888 NVIDIA CUDA Cores. It’s boost clock is 1.73GHz. Memory size is 8GB GDDR6. It’s the perfect card for the price and also promises great performance.
2. RTX 3080:-
This is a medium level graphics card meaning not too cheap nor too expensive. Priced at $699. Just increasing budget to $200 more will reward you with a better card. It comes with 8704 NVIDIA CUDA Cores. It’s boost clock is 1.71GHz .Memory size of 10GB GDDR6X. Overall a great card.
The RTX 3080 features what Nvidia calls the “world’s fastest graphics memory,” with GDDR6X VRAM that can perform at a whopping 760GB per second. There’s also new dedicated ray tracing hardware for even more immersive lighting and shadows in your favorite PC games.
The RTX 3080 also introduces a new thermal-optimized design that promises 55% more airflow, 30% more efficiency, and the ability to be up to three times quieter during heating gaming sessions.
3. RTX 3090:-
This is the expensive card in the series. Priced for $1,499, yes you read correctly. But with this price also comes great performance. It comes with 10496 NVIDIA CUDA Cores. It’s boost clock is 1.70GHz. Memory size of 24 GB GDDR6X. Everything about this card is so high, it’s performance, price, memory etc. This card promises 8k gaming. This card is groundbreaking card. If someone has cash to burn, this card will be heaven for them, such a great card.
|NVIDIA CUDA Cores||10496||8704||5888|
|Boost Clock (GHz)||1.70||1.71||1.73|
|Memory Size||24 GB||10 GB||8 GB|
Along with these cards NVIDIA has also unveiled various tools. The tools are:-
- Nvidia Reflex: A package of GPU and other technology to improve rapid response in gaming.
- Nvidia Omniverse Machinima: It allows gamers to convert game footage into cinematography.
- Nvidia Broadcast: An app that improves broadcast quality for game streamers.
LG has also announced a great product. They announced first OLED TV’s which will support RTX 30 series.
So much new and exciting stuff has been unveiled, it’s a good year for gamers.
