NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti GPUs based on Ampere architecture announced

NVIDIA at the Computex 2021 event announced the RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti GPUs, an upgrade to e RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 that were introduced last year. The RTX 3080 Ti powered with 12GB of GDDR6X memory promises an incredible leap in performance and fidelity with acclaimed features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS performance-boosting AI, NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction and NVIDIA Broadcast streaming features.

The RTX 3080 Ti is 2x faster than the GTX 1080 Ti in traditional rasterization and much faster with ray tracing and other cutting-edge gaming features enabled, said the company. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti promises 1.5x more performance over the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and 2x the frames per second over the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which was launched in 2017.

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 ray-tracing settings and increase output resolutions. Game franchises that use DLSS includes Battlefield, Call of Duty, Cyberpunk, Fortnite, Minecraft, Tomb Raider and many more.

NVIDIA said that Escape from Tarkov, CrossFire HD, Naraka: Bladepoint, and War Thunder now NVIDIA Reflex latency-reduction. It also said that now there are over 130 games and applications supporting RTX-accelerated innovations, including GPU-accelerated ray tracing.

Pricing and availability

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti starts at $1,199 (Rs. 87,205 approx.) and will roll out starting from  June 3 starting and the RTX 3070 Ti starts at $599 (Rs. 43,565 approx.) and will be available from June 10.

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.
