Computex 2021: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti officially introduced
NVIDIA has finally taken the wraps off the much rumored NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti in their Computex 2021 keynote. The new graphics cards add to the list of Ampere-based desktop GPUs that NVIDIA has unveiled.
NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as the new gaming flagship. While one can say that the GeForce RTX 3090 is an even faster GPU, NVIDIA doesn’t actually target gamers with the GeForce RTX 3090, and has instead referred to the GeForce RTX 3080 as the flagship in the past. Instead, the biggest Ampere GPU in NVIDIA’s arsenal was given the BFGPU moniker.
Meanwhile GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is targeted towards giving the upper mid-range segment an additional choice of the most popular GeForce RTX 30 series cards in the market. Based on the same GA104 GPU, it now offers more CUDA cores and GDDR6X memory to boost performance. The cooler has also been switched to what looks like a hybrid between the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, which is pretty interesting to note.
