NVIDIA has just released a new line of GPUs that are designed to bring gamers to the next level. GeForce has now added the RTX 3070T and the RTX 3070 Ti to its family. Gaming GPUs are a favourite of gamers. Gaming GPUs are able to provide an unmatched combination of fun and productivity, which is something you won’t get with professional cards.

The flagship model, the 3080 is for those who really want it. You can play the most recent and greatest games at a smooth 60fps with 4K. It’s safe to put it simply, this is the greatest graphical leap we have ever seen in a very long time. 

Three 30-series cards launched at launch were a success – the fourth was a huge hit. The 3090 packs amazing power and support for up to 8K gaming potential, with a price tag starting at It’s still incredible at $1,499/PS1,399 

For the meantime, you can still get a 3080 At $699/PS649, it’s half the price. This is 4K gaming at an affordable price the first time ever, and lists of the best graphics card across the internet have been significantly reshuffled because of this.

In regard to the gameplay mechanics and features within the card, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the 3080 uses 2nd and 3rd generation RM cores and a dual-axial flow through thermal design combined with Ampere architecture, the most important thing is to translate these technical aspects into machine output on a screen.

There are some important points to remember, however. It’s the first time we’ve seen GDDR6X memory on a GPU, and the 3080 packs 10 GB of it. Considering the 2080Ti offers 11 GB GDDR6, this might not seem like a lot, but taking a look at the benchmarks will show you a staggering difference. You’ll notice the biggest difference if you’re upgrading to an 8-series card.

A 3090 gaming PC offers the best performance you can get from a gaming PC. For the most performance possible from an Nvidia card, you should consider the 3080 if you cannot afford to drop over $1.5K for a single component.

Only if you’ve already got a 2080Ti would it not be worthwhile to upgrade to a 3080. The 3070 will certainly do the trick when you’re only viewing at 1080p, but if you are planning on upgrading to 1440p or 4K or higher, you ought to consider the 3080.

This card comes at almost half the price of last generation’s card, delivering 4K 60fps PC gaming at a value price. Any PC gamer serious about upgrading their graphics card should buy it.
