Nvidia has revealed their upcoming lineup of new RTX graphics cards that double the performance of the 2000 series GPUs

Revealed through a dedicated livestream, Nvidia revealed the RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090 GPUs with incredibly boosted gameplay performance compared to the first generation of real-time ray-tracing graphics cards.

Of course, the three cards are all on a spectrum of graphical power. The 3070 is the least powerful; the 3090 is a technical beast. All cards see extremely fast GDDR6X memory, new RT cores and new tensor cores.

Here are the GPUs with their prices and release dates:

  • GeForce RTX 3070: $499 – Releases sometime this October
  • GeForce RTX 3080: $699 – Releases on September 17
  • GeForce RTX 3090: Starting at $1499 – Releases on September 24


Nvidia claims that these new GPUs are massively more powerful than what’s come before with massively more optimised performance for real-time ray-tracing, especially when using the company’s impressive DLSS reconstruction technology.
