Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti review

When Nvidia released their RTX 3070 at the end of last year, it was by far the most compelling GPU in their initial RTX 30 line-up. Offering RTX 2080 Ti levels of power for a (supposed) fraction of the cost, it remains my graphics card of choice for those after high frame rates at 1440p and playing games in ultrawide. Even though graphics card prices and stock levels are all over the shop at the moment, the RTX 3070 comfortably sees off competition from both of its nearest AMD neighbours, the Radeon RX 6700 XT and RX 6800 (at least…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti review

It’s been almost nine months since Nvidia kicked off their RTX 30 series with the RTX 3080, and longer still since anyone has actually been able to buy a graphics card at its normal price. Indeed, as the great graphics card shortage of 2020 rumbles on, the solution doesn’t seem to be simply making more of what’s already available out in the wild, but introducing newer, more expensive ones to stretch that GPU pool even further. Indeed, despite the RTX 3080 being plenty powerful enough for 60fps 4K gaming on max settings in pretty much every game going (and well…

Doom Eternal is finally getting its ray tracing update

Doom Eternal is finally getting its long-awaited ray tracing and DLSS update, Nvidia announced today, and they even released some lovely new ray traced footage of the game running in 4K. The shiny, realistic lighting tech has been teased and hinted at for absolutely ages, but in the run-up to the game’s launch last March, it quickly became apparent that its ray tracing support would arrive much later than planned. Happily, the new footage looks lovely, what with all those plasma beam reflections bouncing off the glass walls and polished metal floors, but honestly, when you’re ripping and tearing at…

Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti are official

Nvidia have finally lifted the lid on their latest pair of RTX 30 graphics cards, the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. Announced this morning as part of their Computex 2021 keynote (which is a bit like E3 for hardware nerds), the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti take their place as Nvidia’s new flagship gaming GPUs for 2021. Here’s everything you need to know, including their price, specs and release date. Read more

Nvidia’s DLSS tech is now available in VR, including No Man’s Sky

VR fans with Nvidia RTX graphics cards can now enjoy the benefits of Nvidia’s performance-boosting DLSS tech in some of today’s best VR games, thanks to a swathe of new features included in today’s GeForce Game Ready driver update. No Man’s Sky, mechanic simulator Wrench and survival shooter Into The Radius are the first three VR games to support DLSS, with Nvidia claiming you’ll be able to get double the performance in No Man’s Sky on Ultra settings to help you maintain a smooth 90fps on an Oculus Quest 2 with an RTX 3080.

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio review

MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio review specs: CUDA Cores: 8704 Base / Boost Clock Speed: 1400MHz / 1815MHz VRAM: 10GB GDDR6X Memory Speed: 19 Gbps Power: 320W Recommended System Power: 750W Power connectors: 8-pin x3 Dimensions: 323x140x56mm Price: £780 / $760 The [cms-block] continues to be sold out almost everywhere, but when it does finally come back in stock, is it worth spending that little bit extra on one of the more expensive versions of Nvidia’s new flagship GPU? I’ve been testing the enormous MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio to find out. (more…)

Just how good are AMD’s first 4K Big Navi benchmarks compared to the RTX 3080?

Yesterday, AMD gave us our first glimpse of what their upcoming RX 6000 [cms-block] graphics cards will be able achieve at 4K. While the bulk of their Zen 3 event was centred around their Ryzen 5000 CPUs, we also got a first look at their first Big Navi GPU in action, running Borderlands 3 on its top Badass quality settings at an average of 61fps. AMD also shared some figures for Gears 5 and Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, but how do these benchmark figures actually stack up against Nvidia’s new [cms-block]? Let’s find out. (more…)

Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 2080: how much faster is Nvidia’s new Ampere GPU?

You may not be able to buy it anywhere right now, but Nvidia’s new [cms-block] GPU has very much set the bar for next-gen graphics cards. It represents a significant leap over the existing RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super, both at 4K and lower resolutions, and it’s hands down one of the best graphics cards Nvidia’s ever made. But just how much faster is the RTX 3080 over the RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super? Let’s find out via the medium of some lovely graphs. (more…)

Nvidia apologise in advance for “limited supply” of RTX 3090 today

Nvidia have issued their second apology this week, this time for the launch of the [cms-block]. The so-called “BFGPU” isn’t due to go on sale until 6am PT / 2pm BST later today, September 24th, but Nvidia’s apology confirms previous reports that there will be a “limited supply” of GPUs available when it goes on sale. “We want to apologise upfront that this will be in limited supply on launch day,” Nvidia said on their GeForce website. “We know this is frustrating, and we’re working with our partners to increase the supply in the weeks to come.” (more…)

Nvidia apologise for RTX 3080 launch, saying “we were not prepared”

Nvidia have apologised for last week’s “frustrating” [cms-block] launch, stating that demand for their new flagship GPU was “overwhelming” and that “we were not prepared for this level [of enthusiasm], nor were our partners.” The apology was posted on their GeForce blog earlier today, answering community questions such as what the overall RTX 3080 stock situation is like at the moment, and why their own ‘Notify Me’ emails were so slow to being sent out. Here’s what they have to say about it. (more…)

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090: release date, where to buy, price and specs

The RTX 3090 is the new king of Nvidia’s next-gen RTX 3000 series. Dubbed the “BFGPU” of the [cms-block] family (that’s a reference to Doom’s BFG, in case you’re wondering), the RTX 3090 is not only the world’s fastest graphics card, but it’s also the first one to play and capture games in 8K, too (although the number of 8K displays around at the moment is practically zero). No one really needs an RTX 3090, but people with more money than sense will want it anyway because it’s set to be one of the best graphics cards you can buy…
