NVIDIA Ampere GeForce

They’re finally here, after all the rumors, photos, leaks, and speculation, the new NVIDIA Ampere GeForce cards have official been released to the public. Released in three different flavors the RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and the monstrous RTX 3090 dubbed “BFGPU” have hit the market. Here’s what we know so far: (we’ll update this blog as information comes in!)

Memory TypeGDDR6XGDDR6XGDDR6

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090

In what appears to be the successor of the NVIDIA TITAN RTX GPU, The RTX 3090 is a beast by any means. Labeled as “Big Ferocious GPU” (BFGPU). This massive card occupies three slots and even includes a silencer to make it quieter than TITAN RTX. With a hulking 10,496 CUDA Cores and 24 GB of G6X memory, it’s expected to be up to 50 percent faster than the TITAN RTX, and requires a 750-watt power supply. The RTX 3090 itself is rated at 350 watts.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080

In what appears to the the successor of the RTX 2080, the Ampere powered RTX 3080 appears to be a massive upgrade in terms of performance while not breaking the bank. This new flagship GPU has 10GB G6X memory and is built with enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and super fast G6X memory for an amazing performance boost (up to 2x of RTX 2080).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070

Boasting faster performance than the RTX 2080 Ti, the newly unveiled RTX 3070 will attract those looking for high performance GPU on a budget. With 5,888 CUDA Cores it appears to be a significant leap in terms of performance from the 4,352 CUDA Cores of the RTX 2080 Ti.
