ASUS Announces GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti ROG Strix (LC) and TUF Graphics Cards

When NVIDIA's Ampere GPUs first stormed onto the scene, the GeForce RTX 3090 created an entirely new category of performance for the highest-resolution, highest-refresh-rate graphics and most demanding GPU compute tasks on the market.
