RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Specifications - Mounts 2nd Gen RT Cores


The ever-reliable VideoCardz has received a tip from its sources in the industry that has confirmed the final specifications of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080, two next-generation graphics cards that, in theory, should be presented by NVIDIA on September 1 in a special event that, as our regular readers will remember, will be dedicated to Ampere, his new architecture.


I put you in a situation, as I think it is easy for some of our readers to feel out of place when reading RTX 3090 and RTX 3080. Until now, NVIDIA had reserved the "Ti" badge for its more powerful graphics cards, so the GTX 780 was overtaken by the GTX 780 Ti, the GTX 980 suffered the same fate at the hands of the GTX 980 Ti, and the same has happened in the last two generations with the GTX 1080-GTX 1080 Ti and the RTX 2080-RTX 2080 Ti.


With that in mind, it's easy to wonder where exactly that RTX 3090 fits in, and the answer is very simple, it will, in theory, be the successor to the RTX 2080 Ti, and according to the latest information it will offer around 40% more raw performance. than that. The RTX 3080, by contrast, will be the successor to the RTX 2080, but it will be a bit more powerful than the RTX 2080 Ti. It's said to be around 15% at best, meaning an overclocked RTX 2080 Ti could perform almost as well as an RTX 3080.


If everything we have said above is confirmed, the jump in gross power level that the RTX 30 series will mark is not going to be too great, but we should not stay on the surface. The RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 will use second-generation RT (ray tracing) cores, and third-generation tensor cores (Volta is equivalent to the first generation, and Turing to the second generation), and according to the latest information they could multiply up to for four times the performance of the RTX 20 series working with ray tracing.


The RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 will use GPUs manufactured in the 7nm process, will support PCI Express 4.0, and will be compatible with HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a connectors. We will have to wait for the NVIDIA event to confirm it, but several rumors have indicated that NVIDIA has prepared some exclusive technologies that will give a greater value to the RTX 30, such as NVCache, which will optimize the management and use of RAM memory, VRAM memory and storage SSD to reduce loading times in games, intelligent understanding of textures through the tensor cores, to reduce the consumption of graphics memory, and DLSS 3.0, which will have more widespread support.



RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Specifications




The price of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 has not yet been revealed, but it is rumored that the first could be around 1,400-1,500 euros, while the second will cost about 1,000 euros.


Without further ado, I leave you the complete specifications of each model.
