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.

ChomiqThese are official retailers, no 3rd party sellers, exchange rates didn't just magically jump 300% only for GPUs.

^ That's PLN to USD exchange rate over the past year. No drastic changes.

Price for RTX 3060 should be around 2000 PLN, 2700 PLN for 3070, 3600 PLN for 3080. Currently they are pretty much tripple of what they should cost and it's like that since January this year.
Sure, you might be lucky to be in US, but pretty much everyone outside is getting screwed by retailers/distributors/manufacturers etc.
Are those prices that they should be the original MSRP set by Nvidia? Majority of AIBS did announce price increases earlier this year too. Though i guess retailers could gouge too.

That is not what I am saying. Of course there was no 300% price increase. But Asus, EVGA, MSI they all did announce increases ranging from $50-200+ over original MSRPs they set for their custom cards. Seems like people not in the US are getting railed that's for sure. Its bad in US too, but not 300% bad.

Just avoid ebay and retailers that allow 3rd parties. Or if buying from Amazon, it better say "Shipped and Sold by Amazon" usually prices are normal.

Amazon posts 3080 FTW cards for $850 almost daily. They sell right away though.

MxPhenom 216Show me. I have yet to see one thst isnt some bs third party selling through walmart, newegg, Amazon for scalper pricing. Thats nothing to do with Amazon, newegg, walmart etc. Actual cards sold by them are at MSRP or whatever the AIB has set price for.


I mean theres exchange rates and shit at play here, no? Also do these sellers allow third parties to sell through them like Amazon and Newegg?
The AIBs or someone in the supply chain is setting those ridiculous prices. And I'm not talking about Amazon and the like, but official distributors of nVidia and AMD (both physical and online stores), that used to sell the same cards at reasonable prices in December but now they doubled the price.

Maybe Poland is singled out. NVidia wants them to fix Cyberpunk first and get going on that Witcher 3 RTX update.

Except CaseKing is a German retailer.

And once again, the 300% prices are from OFFICIAL retailers listed by Nvidia, no 3rd party.

I wouldn't be that surprised that we could get a Witcher 3 enhanced edition that has RT in it though.

Damn....$1200 for a 3080Ti card.

My 980Ti has lasted me 6 years now and only cost about $650. That's just about 110$ a year if you were to break up the price per year.
To get the same price out of a 3080Ti would require me to use it for almost 11 years.

Sounds like an overpriced piece of junk when compared to the 3080 version that has a MSRP of $700.

I'd be happy if I could get my hands on any RX 6700XT, 6800 or 3060Ti, 3070, 3070Ti that was actually at MSRP prices. I wonder how much longer I'll have to wait or do I just say F it and move away from PC gaming because GPUs are so over priced (from listed MSRP) or so hard to find to begin with?

GPU market totally broken, we are seeing the bad sides of a free market.

Still no 3050 or 3030 gpu's, plus we are seeing Nvidia has been sitting on chips that could have gone into filling 3080 backorders.

This is most likely chips that did not make it to a fully working 3090 / GA102, but close.
No need to sell them as 3080's, which is far more cutdown than 3080 Ti. This is why Ti models most often launch much later.

How many people are REALLY still waiting for their 3080 ordered last year? Not many I believe..

On one UK retailer alone approx 4000 customers. 90% of them ordered release day, the retailer is getting shipments of about 5-10 per month from each AIB, evga havent sent any to them for 4 months.

Evga themselves also have a queue although in their case its not backorders, but rather a queue to order.

The retailer said 3060ti has same issue as they putting all the chips into 3070s refusing to put 3070 grade chips into reducing 3060ti backlog.

Maybe, maybe not - 3060 Ti launched much later than 3070 but both are increasing on steam hw survey

Whats funny tho, is that Radeon 6000 is nowhere to be seen on steam, and these chips are not even good for mining, so..

No. Personally, I absolutely hate playing with controllers now. I tried playing a few games on my brother's PS4 last time I was down visiting him and I hated it. Everything just feels slow and cumbersome. You won't catch me spending my money on a console.

Have to say there are some good arguments here. Don't really understand Linus' take on the 3080 Ti.
Has he been a business owner for too long and started seeing things through that lens?
