NVIDIA launches new GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards with 8K gaming

New graphics cards will feature industry firsts, including 4K refresh rates

Today, NVIDIA announced the debut of its all-new GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards, which will include a range of industry firsts in performance.  

These new graphics cards will be built using Samsung’s 8nm process and will feature up to 24 GB of Micron’s new GDDR6X VRAM for quick performance. They will also be the first-ever GPUs to feature HDMI 2.1, which supports 4K high-refresh rate and 8K gaming. They’ll also boast industry-first support for AV1 codec, which reduces the bandwidth needed for high-resolution streams. 

The new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs will also feature NVIDIA Reflex to minimize latency, NVIDIA Broadcast to enhance video and voice through artificial intelligence (AI) and NVIDIA Studio to allow creative software to run more smoothly. 

NVIDIA will release three GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs over the next few months. 

The base model will be the $499 GeForce RTX 3070, which will be available in October and feature 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 5,888 CUDA cores. 

The midrange GeForce RTX 3080 will retail for $699 and will feature 10 GB of GDDR6X VRAM and 8,704 CUDA cores. The RTX 3080 will hit stores Sept. 17. 

The top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 3090 will hit stores on Sept. 24 at $1,499. It’ll feature 10,496 CUDA cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X VRAM. 

New Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors are also a part of the RTX 30 Series GPUs. This Ampere architecture offers superior performance thanks to its 2x FP32 throughput. They also feature increased performance per watt, PCIE 4.0 support, an 18-phase power supply and innovative cooling. 

Finally, the RTX 30 Series GPUs feature second-generation NVIDIA Ray Tracing cores with twice the throughput.
