MojoKid writes: NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang formally unveiled the GeForce RTX 30 sequence primarily based on the corporate’s new Ampere structure a few weeks again. In accordance with Huang, the GeForce RTX 30 sequence represents the best generational leap within the firm’s historical past and he claimed the GeForce RTX 3080 would supply double the efficiency of its predecessor. The embargo for GeForce RTX 3080 critiques simply lifted and it appears NVIDIA was intent on making good on its claims. The GeForce RTX 3080 is the quickest GPU launched so far, throughout the board, whatever the sport, software, or benchmarks used. All through testing, the GeForce RTX 3080 usually put up scores greater than doubling the efficiency of AMD’s present flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT. The RTX 3080 even skunked the NVIDIA Titan RTX and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti by comparatively giant margins, despite the fact that it would retail for nearly half the value of a 2080 Ti (at the very least at the moment). The underside line is, NVIDIA’s bought a completely stellar-performing GPU on its palms, and the GeForce RTX 3080 is not even the very best Ampere has to supply, with the RTX 3090 ready within the wings. GeForce RTX 3080 playing cards will likely be out there from NVIDIA and third-party board companions on 9/17 for an entry-level MSRP of $699.
