NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti to arrive on 17th September, other GeForce RTX 30-series to follow later
NVIDIA is reportedly going to unveil their Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30-series cards on 17th September. As customary of NVIDIA in recent times, they will kick off the series with their flagship consumer offering, before serving up the cut-down versions down the line.
According to this rumor, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 will arrive on 17th September, before being followed by the GeForce RTX 3070 series in October and the GeForce RTX 3060 in November.
This bit of news also hints at a price hike for the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1660 graphics cards, due to an increase in demand due to revived interest in cryptomining. Prices are expected to increase by about $20 (~RM84), which is relatively significant when you consider that those cards cost around RM1200~RM1300.
Regardless, look forward to greatly improved performance with the GeForce RTX 30-series, as the Ampere architecture is expected to bring some impressive gains especially in terms of raytracing performance. Well, we will see soon enough.
