After a series of leaked benchmarks and design renders, NVIDIA has finally launched two new RTX 30 series Ti cards at Computex 2021, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti.
As is tradition, the new Ti (meaning Titanium) graphics cards are more powerful than the cards they’re based on but not as powerful as their successors in NVIDIA’s lineup.
The RTX 3080 Ti seems like a scaled-down version of the mighty RTX 3090, offering 80 streaming multiprocessors (versus 82), 34 TFLOPS of compute power (versus 36), and 12 GB of RAM (versus 24 GB).
During its Computex 2021 presentation, NVIDIA showed several slides with benchmarks demonstrating the card’s ability to run all flagship games, including Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs Legion, at max settings, so it should be able to easily handle even the most demanding VR titles, such as Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond or Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
The RTX 3070 Ti is positioned right below the RTX 3080. It has the same number of streaming multiprocessors (68) but less VRAM (8 GB versus 10 GB) and lower compute power (22 TFLOPS versus 30).
|RTX 3070 Ti||68||8 GB GDDR6X||22||$599|
|RTX 3080||68||10 GB GDDR6X||30||$699|
|RTX 3080 Ti||80||12 GB GDDR6X||34||$1,199|
|RTX 3090||82||24 GB GDDR6X||36||$1,499|
As the table above shows, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is priced at $1,199, while the RTX 3070 Ti will cost $599. The RTX 3080 Ti will be available from June 3, with the RTX 3070 Ti following it just a week later, on June 10.
If you would like to purchase one of the newly introduced graphics cards for yourself, then you better order soon because it’s very likely that cryptocurrency miners are already entering their shipping details.
