Nvidia Announces the Next Generation of GPUs That Really Matter—And They're Beasts

Nvidia has consistently maintained its status as the lead creator of graphics cards, pioneering the transition to fancy lighting effects like ray tracing in Now that Nvidia’s officially announced its next-gen GPUs and the rumor mill is put to rest, we know just how much fancier its GPUs are going to get from here. In a virtual event this morning, Nvidia announced three new cards are coming just in time for the holidays: the RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090. And they are so beastly, I can’t even...

But the company’s next generation of ray tracing cards won’t necessarily have those issues, with soon-to-be-released games like Cyberpunk 2077 getting the ray tracing treatment and a slew of already released ray tracing compatible games like Metro Exodus and Control… this is a good time to pick up an RTX graphics card if you haven’t already.

In a virtual event this morning, Nvidia announced three new cards are coming just in time for the holidays: the RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090.

At the moment, Nvidia has a serious upper hand over AMD, and if AMD is going to compete, it has to not only make ray tracing look as good as GeForce cards, but it has to hit the same frame rate benchmarks, something that it wasn’t necessarily able to do with its RX 5000-series.

Nvidia has consistently maintained its status as the lead creator of graphics cards, pioneering the transition to fancy lighting effects like ray tracing in games.

It was widely speculated that Nvidia’s Ampere architecture would be building blocks for the next-generation of professional cards built for data centers and deep learning, which Nvidia confirmed back in May 2020.

There were a few things that temporarily held Nvidia back after its RTX 20-series release, like a severe lack of ray tracing compatible games and a higher barrier to entry for decent performance.

But the RTX 3000 cards will also be built on Ampere, which means that Turing architecture Nvidia introduced with its RTX 2000-series cards?

Rumors have already pointed to production seriously slowing down or stopping altogether on the higher-end RTX 20-series cards, which could create a scarcity situation in the time leading up to the RTX 30-series cards release in a few weeks.

With these cards expected to launch this month stay tuned for reviews and answers—including just how much energy that big boy RTX 3090 will need.
