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.

CybrshrkI'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.
Evga may have it listed at the msrp (or their originally listed price) but good luck getting one. These will indeed be sold at 3x price on day one.

ChomiqWell 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.
Yea but it's also in line with the last one kinda hard to get mad at them too for that when they offered you a card within 10% of it for $699.

Enthusiasts are accustomed to paying significantly more for what is usually only a slight increase over "high end".

My 2080ti held me well and got me a 3080 for NEGATIVE money out of pocket I don't really have a problem now spending that extra money on this card which I'll easily be able to make up selling my 3080 and even then when I'm ready for a 4080 I'll likley be able to pull the same thing then.
Blue4130Evga may have it listed at the msrp (or their originally listed price) but good luck getting one. These will indeed be sold at 3x price on day one.
Well maybe from whatever back alley place in Eastern eruope you have to go to but best buy and evga will both be listing these cards on day 1 at their respective msrp's.

Garuanteed!

The inability for you (or me) to secure a product doesn't not negate the fact the product WILL be sold for that price to someone.

And I personally have my plan (like last time) that got me a 3080 on day 1 at msrp to get a 80ti this time as well.

And no no bots or scalper type crap just proper planning and understanding of what likley to be most beneficial use of my time the moment these go live.

$1199 is around £850 in the UK. But I doubt I'll see FE cards here at anything under £1100.

~$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).
Isn't this more of an issue with your country and the worth of its currency? I mean I'm not expert but if everything ends up needing to be cheaper per conversion for you guys doesn't that mean your money just isn't worth what it needs to be.

Unlike games where they can just discount them for you all to make it more affordable these are physical products with determined costs that need to be recouped.

They do (via Scan Computers - the ONLY way to get an FE card in the UK), but the $699 3080 arrived here at £649 because we have 20% sales tax.

Even then, we only get drops lasting around 5 seconds every 4-6 weeks.

Hi,
Nvidia has been selling titan's for 1200 for a while so 3080ti at 1200.us fills the large gap between 3080 and 3090.
Vaporware still but miners and scalpers rejoice

wolfBugger 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.
But is a 3080 even remotely a $699 card these days? When's the last time you saw one for that price? In the states it's not been possible since the tarrfis in January so I don't think it's even fair to compare the OLD 3080 pricing before all that with the new 3080ti msrp.

I think for many the Ti will still look like a pretty solid value compared to what they might have to pay for a 3080 of they go elsewhere.

The truth is every single gamer even remotely fathoming a 3080 or 3090 will absolutely be trying to get one of these.
xorbeLooking 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.
Me I'm glad I took my 2080ti sold it for 83% of what I paid for it used that money to buy 3080 and put several hundred dollars in my pocket.... Now I'll take that extra cash try to land one of these and when successful sell my 3080 for enough to cover the upgrade in full.

I'll have went 2080ti 3080 3080ti with money in my pockets at the end.

And I'll likley be able to sell the 3080ti right before the 4080 launch for again enough to pay for that upgrade in full as well.

Well we have taxes similar to that in different parts of the states as well amd even when I got a $699 3080 I did not come close to JUST paying $699 taxes are expected and I know conversion rates can sometimes be messy but at the end of the day they still make them available to you same as us for what is essentially msrp.

Difficult to aquire?... sure but not impossible nor non existent.

It is fair when FE can still be purchased for MSRP.

$1530 vs $895

but...

In reality the actual prices are valid starting from the end of the list:

Adjusted for taxes generally prices for GPUs are around 20-25% higher than US msrp(in last couple of years for some reason prices have come down a lot). Also in last few months most retailes in India have started price gouging beyond reason, even CPUs are stupidly overpriced. Saw some retailers selling 5950x(though due to overpricing they are in stock) for nearly $1200 equivalent while they until last years they were within 5-10% of US prices.

3080TI, 8% faster than 3080 for 72% more $$$. You gotta love nVidia. Jensen: "The more you buy, the more you save" RIP PC GAMING if this trend continues.

Again I'm not expert and I know "msrp" and the amount in USD for us may not does not HAVE to be the same for other places.

Like I get that its nice when we all pay the same but it's just not how the world works in some cases.

You guys get steam games for pennies on the dollar compared to us in a lot cases but again their an economic reason for this and it's something the can accommodate.

I assume the pricing you of physical goods works differently than digital and they just can't make what you want work with whatever tarrif / tax / etc that may be involved with selling the physical good in your country.

Sorry but this is normal for enthusiast markets were always paying extremely high costs beyond what many would consider "reasonable" usually for very little gain (but it's still a gain and it still puts us on top so we go for it)

That's what being part of the enthusiast market is about.

You absolutely don't need to be a part of it if you don't find that kind of thing of interest.

But many do it's why Lambos and Ferraris exist.

And that my friend is unfortunately likley your own people taking advantage of each other.

Not a lot the rest of the world can do when it's your own businesses marking you up.

Those cards still have "MSRP" set in regions that offer FE editions, so you can totally compare the prices. I'm talking about FE vs FE. I'm not talking about comparing 3080 from MSI with 3080 Ti FE pricing suggested by Nvidia. If I would a $1200 3080 Ti would be a steal next to $2500 3080.

As for "you guys" - us guys in EU are paying $70+ for your $60 games for years now.

Normal??? Far from it. Some recent high end dGPU history (price/performance value):

2013: 780TI vs GTX 680 = +66% performance increase & 200$ MSRP price increase
2015: 980TI vs 780TI = +28% performance increase & 50$ price REDUCTION
2017: 1080TI vs 980TI = +67% performance increase & 50$ price increase
2019: 2080TI vs 1080TI = +26% performance increase & 300$ price increase!!!
2021: 3080TI vs 2080TI = +40% performance increase & 200$ price increase

nVidia went from charging $500 to $1200 bucks for top tier gaming GPU in just 9 years...240% price increase in time frame when cumulative USD inflation was 16,3%. Why the hell are people still defending them and AMD's MSRP price hikes???

This. It's an insane price increase VS what you get for it. It just gives retailers even more excuse to jack the price.

Smells a little like yeilds are decent on GA102, so they want to milk more $$ out of those dies instead of settling for them being just a 3080 and taking a smaller slice of pie, and get to make the VRAM amount of a 3090 go to two cards instead of one.

$1200 is joke of course. Right now the Strix 3080 OC sold out at A$2800 and the Strix 3090 OC has been also sold at A$4200. In fact, none of the cards are left for sale.

Is there some kind of tax being applied in Poland? Perhaps a VAT tax?

Where I live in the USA the sales tax is 9.25% so for a $60 game I pay $65.55

The tax man will get their money one way or another.

Who cares at this point, order now, recieve by christmas, and then 4000 series launch on Samsung 5nm in 2nd half of 2022

They will sell for 2-3 timse MSRP anyway, terrible value

I really hope we will see 7900XT late this year on TSMC 5nm, Nvidia could get in trouble, especially if FSR works well

I don't expect GPU market to normalize before mid 2022 maybe even 2023

R0H1TIt's still better than what you had (per/$) in 2017, 2018 & 2019 ~ it's only 2020 & arguably Covid that blew the demand out of all expectations. Nvidia on the other hand had RTX 2xxx series remember that? The only reason why the initial launch of Ampere looked better is because the 2xxx was basically selling at extortionary prices, historically speaking Ampere is still extremely poor VFM.
It's still a over 70% MSRP increase over the predecessor 3080 from only 6 months ago. Or nearly half the perf/$.

That's disasterous no matter how you cut it.
evernessinceNo, their CPUs are still almost half the price of this 3080 Ti. They increased prices yes but it ain't nowhere near this level.
The effective price increase for their 6 core tier CPU was 50% (199.99 to 299.99) for 20-40% more performance. Actual real world pricing was damn near 100%, going from ~$169 for a 3600 to $300 for a 5600x, not including scalp pricing.

"but muh 3600x" The 3600, 3600 x(treme fanboi edition), and 3600 x(treme fanboi) t(urbo edition) were all the same chip and within 2-3% of eachother in gaming benchmarks and productivity because zen 2 had almost no headroom for OCing.

The 3080 Ti makes no sense if you have any kind of budget constraints (meaning, not being a millionaire) - if (in theory) you can get a 3080 at MSRP and a 3080 Ti at MSRP, why would ANYONE choose the 3080 Ti? 2 GB more VRAM, as if the 3080 was 'starving' for RAM - it's not. It's perfectly fine with 4K. And the additional CUDA cores - you're gonna get what? 5-10% more performance, maybe? As we know performance does not scale linearly with CUDA core count, so let's say an average of 7%. Sooo... $500 MORE on top of an MSRP of $700, for about 7% and 2 GB of VRAM? Is this a joke? Why would anyone in their right mind buy this???

It's going to be fun watching the manufacturers set the the prices for these cards since most sell the 3070 for well over $600 and the 3080 for over $1000.

If you are talking about the first part of my comment I was referring to CPUs, both Intel & AMD have drastically improved perf/$ since 2016.

R0H1TIf you are talking about the first part of my comment I was referring to CPUs, both Intel & AMD have drastically improved perf/$ since 2016.
If you are talking about MY comment, I pointed out how AMD has ruined performance/$ with ryzen 5000, taking a serious step back in the lower end of the market with a nearly 100% price increase for 20-40% more performance.
R0H1TIt'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.
See this, right here? This is wrong. The 5600x represents a significant degregation in performance per $ since 2019, arguably since 2018 with the ryzen 2600. Hell in 2018 you could get a 8 core 200 for under $200. Now you get a 6 core for $300. That's a step backwards. The 5600x isnt 90% faster then a 3600 yet effectively costs 90% more then the 3600x did pre covid.

And that 5600x price is not a coronavirus special. AMD set a MSRP that was 50% higher then a 3600 for 20-40% more performance. Real world prices for the 3600 were lower then MSRP, making the math significantly worse. At $169 that is a 77% increase in MSRP for at most 40% more performance, typically around 20% in consumer applications. At $159 that becomes a 88% difference. That is an attrocious value.
