NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 3080 Ti ($1200) and RTX 3070 Ti ($600)

NVIDIA today unveiled two additions to the GeForce RTX family—the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti—available soon from its global network of GeForce partners. The new flagship gaming GPU of the GeForce RTX family, the RTX 3080 Ti will be available worldwide June 3 starting at $1,199, with the RTX 3070 Ti available next week starting at $599.

While previous-generation GPUs tackled the ambitious games of their era, contemporary games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs: Legion have elevated realism—and increased overall demands of modern graphics cards. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the RTX 3080 Ti delivers an incredible leap in performance and fidelity with acclaimed features such as raytracing, NVIDIA DLSS performance-boosting AI, NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction, NVIDIA Broadcast streaming features and additional memory that allows it to speed through the most popular creator applications as well.
"With RTX such a huge success, gamers and creators will be thrilled with the performance and features the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti offers," said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the GeForce business unit at NVIDIA. "As the new flagship to the RTX family, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the ultimate upgrade for GPU enthusiasts of any generation."

Unsurpassed Performance
Across a variety of ray-traced and rasterized DirectX and Vulkan titles, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is a gaming powerhouse that also brings lower latency for better responsiveness and a competitive edge to the games millions of people are playing today.

For gamers still rocking the well-loved GTX 1080 Ti, the RTX 3080 Ti is 2x faster in traditional rasterization and much faster with ray tracing and other cutting-edge gaming features enabled.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is just as impressive in its price class, delivering 1.5x more performance over the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames per second over the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which launched in 2017.

Perfect for Creators, Too
The world's 45 million-plus creative professionals demand more from their hardware than ever, so GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPUs deliver amped up levels of creative performance as well.

Backed by the NVIDIA Studio platform and powered with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory for creative applications, RTX is accelerating the No. 1 photography application — Adobe Photoshop; the No. 1 video editing application — Adobe Premiere Pro; the No. 1 broadcast application — OBS; and every major 3D renderer. There are now over 70 content creation applications that support RTX-accelerated raytracing, DLSS or AI features.

NVIDIA DLSS: The AI Gift That Gamers Love
AI is revolutionizing gaming—from in-game physics and animation simulation to real-time rendering and AI-assisted broadcasting features. Powered by dedicated AI processors on GeForce RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores, NVIDIA DLSS boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, crisp game images and it gives gamers the performance headroom to maximize raytracing settings and increase output resolutions.

Adoption of DLSS technology has been swift, and the game title count is set to increase quickly with support in the world's leading licensed game engines, Unreal Engine and Unity Engine. The all-star lineup of gaming franchises that use DLSS to deliver a new level of graphics includes Battlefield, Call of Duty, Cyberpunk, Fortnite, Minecraft, Tomb Raider and many more.

NVIDIA Reflex and Broadcast: The Ultimate Play
NVIDIA Reflex technology reduces system latency (or input lag), making games more responsive and giving players in competitive multiplayer titles an edge over the opposition. In fact, 12 out of the top 15 most played competitive shooters now support Reflex, including Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, Overwatch, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and Valorant, and it is coming soon to Escape from Tarkov and Crossfire.

NVIDIA Broadcast is a suite of audio and video AI enhancements, including virtual backgrounds, motion capture and advanced noise removal, that users can apply to chats, Skype calls and video conferences.

Where to Buy
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be available on June 3 starting at $1,199, with the RTX 3070 Ti available on June 10 starting at $599. Both GPUs will be available for purchase as custom boards—including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models—from leading add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galax, GIGABYTE, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, Zotac and other regional providers around the world.

Limited-edition NVIDIA Founders Edition boards will also be available. Look for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPUs at major retailers and etailers, as well as in gaming systems from major manufacturers and leading system builders worldwide.

Nice with new gpu with a proper amount of vram on 3080 TI.

Just one problem. At launch day, 3, 2, 1... We are sorry, everything is sold out :banghead: oh and let's be hornest, the cards will not go for anything near msrp. More like double or triple the msrp :cry:

Bugger me $1199 MSRP for a card ~10% faster and 2GB more VRAM than a 3080 @ 699 MSRP. Massive RIP to what will be the on-shelf prices.

I'm sorry but I feel you are wrong at least on launch. The cards (most) won't be EXACTLY $1199 but typically only the founders and the most basic AIB cards would be.

The rest will still be withing the TYPICAL up charge for somethk g like a ftw3 or strix etc.

The day of launch I know if I want a card for msrp the majority of places I'm going to get it will be selling it what the aib has set the pricing for.

A few weeks / months down the road yes some places may be selling cards for more but evga for example has everyone of their cards listed still to this day at the pricing they set for them initially or atleast with the US tariff increase included.

I get you but I think they mean to say that we just are not getting anything for that price point anymore, prices just keep going up and these damn world issues make it seem like these MSRP's are perfectly reasonable as well....

I would love to upgrade, heck it has been kinda needed for a while but I just cant bring myself to pay that much for such a product, its not that I cant afford it, I just dont think its worth that much money.

As the post above me stated. Neither of those cards are low-mid end. There are no low-mid announced or rumored at all. Maybe in marketing talk, but nothing price wise.

I agree. I could probably afford a 3070 (Ti) for MSRP, but I'm alright with my 1650 for now. If a 3050 (Ti) came out and was available as well even in low profile form factor, that could change my mind for an upgrade.

Well you could also quote Nvidia on this and make a better comparison:
"For gamers still rocking the well-loved GTX 1080 Ti, the RTX 3080 Ti is 2x faster in traditional rasterization"... 1080 Ti - $699 MSRP, 3080 Ti $1199 MSRP.

Back to 2000 series pricing even at msrp level after all pr with “cost-cutting” 3070 at 2080ti level for 519 msrp.

Oh, is that Nvidia's version of inflation o_O

While CPU perf/$ has exploded, since 2017, Nvidia's rewriting history books :slap:

AMD took that and applied it to their CPU pricing.

It's still better than what you had (per/$) in 2017, 2018 & 2019 ~ it's only 2020 & arguably Covid that blew the demand out of all expectations. Nvidia on the other hand had RTX 2xxx series remember that? The only reason why the initial launch of Ampere looked better is because the 2xxx was basically selling at extortionary prices, historically speaking Ampere is still extremely poor VFM.

Looking at EVGA 3080 cards, they are all $100-200 over msrp, so for the 3080Ti we are looking at $1299-1399 for EVGA. Not feeling that, will skip to the 4000 series for that kind of money, will keep using the 2080Ti.

Based on specs I would say the 3070 Ti is the high end of Midrange and the 3080 Ti is High End along with the 3090.

They all are from this point going forward, except for these: FE models and RTX3090.

Pricing of these in India:

~$1700 for 3080Ti


~$850 for 3070Ti

Now to real world, I have seen retailers selling 3060Ti for over $1000 here so that MSRP to start with is a joke and when applying the msrp to current scenario it's pointless. at this point screw nvidia(and for GPUs AMD as well).

No, their CPUs are still almost half the price of this 3080 Ti. They increased prices yes but it ain't nowhere near this level.

Agreed. As an avid gamer myself I'm perfectly fine with what I have. So many other things you can do with the money that'll get you more value.

It's not about "this level" it's about the price creep.
