Specifications for Nvidia's RTX 3080 and 3070 have leaked - 10/20GB graphics cards?

Will Ampere be a big leap over Turing?



Read more about Nvidia's rumoured RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 graphics cards.

The newer cards are going to be faster but what we really want to know apart from the specs is the price Still if the leak is factual then at least were getting closer to some more solid info from nvidia themselves they tend to be very tight lipped so hearing anything is interesting.

I'm also looking forward to details from AMD as well not ruling them out as an option I feel they will have something worth while coming.

But if the new nvidia cards just slot between like new super versions in terms of performance then the current cards are still worth while it would then come down to how much raytracing tensor cores are also being added on top.

Even with so few details it might only be a 30% bump over the current cards so the price tbh is the biggest deciding factor.

2020 looks to be the year for gaming hardware. If Ampere rumours are even remotely true, it's going to be a huge uplift in performance. Those specs alone suggest massive leaps forward. I think Nvidia will stick to the same pricing though, $600 for the 3070 and $800 for the 3080. It's absurd, but that is actually a performance-per-dollar uplift over Turing, as sad as that is. Nvidia really played it well. They set themselves up for a huge win. They had the opportunity to crank the prices and get away with it. Now they can continue that trend but act the hero by upping performance dramatically.

Graphics card prices have been going up for years.


I remember dropping £1100 within 5 minutes of watching the OC3D review of the GTX980Ti and I bought 2 of them.


I dropped £800+ on a 1080Ti and recently £1140 on a 2080Ti.


The problem is no competition means nVidia can get away with pricing high and people who want/need the performance will have to pay for it because who else can they go with, not AMD or Intel because they have nothing in the same performance range.

Yes...

Looks at self in mirror, then hangs head in shame.

Realises he spent £1300 on a video card and was prepped to buy a second.

For shame....

I'm fine with a £1k card, as long as it performs like a £1k card. The 2080ti should have been £700, but that's what lack of competition does.

What we do know is that Nvidia did not sell as many 2080tis as they hoped. So if the 3080 comes in at the same performance level as the 2080ti, I bet the price will be similar too. At least until Turing stock runs out.

We need some ing high end radeon cards, Jesus Christ.

I disagree there.

£700 were flagship cards with just boosts in specs already present e.g. jumping from 780ti to 980ti or jumping to 1080ti. Remember the 2080ti brought Ray tracing and new technology like Tensor cores.

That technology costs millions in R&D. Obviously its not new anymore so it will mean GPU will drop in cost over time, but new tech never comes cheap. I expected 2080ti to hit the £1000 mark but AIBs being upwards of £1500 is where it got ridiculous.


Look at G-sync when it released. The cost was insane, and yes its still pricey now, but the proprietary pricing has dropped. Here in Norway at least.

I still don't consider RT or Tensor as valid features for gamers, especially ones that requires a price hike to pay for. I'll succeed the point for other use-cases, as I have no reference to argue.

The 2080ti was just a a bad buy if you already owned a 1080ti. 30% perf increase is fine at the same price, but it really wasn't

I suppose everyone has a different threshold of how much they're willing to pay..
