Nvidia recently announced the availability of their most recent GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card. It’s available with 12 gigabytes of GDDR6 graphics memory. The performance is exceptional, as it is equipped with 3,584 CUDA cores that render graphics content at a frequency between 1,320 and 1,780 MHz. The maximum power consumption is around 170 watts, which means that we will be able to use it in conjunction with slightly more compact PCs with above the average PSUs.
But as more demanding gamers need even more power, Nvidia is expected to offer a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti version of graphics card soon. It will be based on the Nvidia Ampera GA102 graphics core with 10,240 CUDA cores. It will be available here with 12 gigabytes of GDDR6 graphics memory and a 384-bit data interface. The maximum power consumption will be around 320 watts, suitable for more advanced computer systems.
Of course, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 TI graphics card will not be cheap. In the United States, its retail price is expected to be around $1000. However, since the demand for graphics cards is currently well above the supply (mainly due to crypto mining), it probably means that we will need to spend even more.
