Nvidia has unveiled the latest graphics cards in its RTX 30-series — the RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti.
The RTX 3080 Ti will launch on June 3rd for $1,199. The RTX 3080 Ti includes 12GB of GDDR6X memory — a 2GB increase from the RTX 3080 and half of what the RTX 3090 offers, yet Nvidia says the 3080 Ti will serve as a new flagship to the RTX 30-series.
Alongside the RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia also unveiled the RTX 3070 Ti. According to Nvidia, the RTX 3070 Ti features 1.5x more performance than the previous RTX 3070 Super and includes 8GB of GDDR6X memory. The RTX 3070 Ti will launch on June 10 for $599.
Like other cards in the RTX 30 line, both the 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti will support Nvidia's ray tracing and DLSS technologies. Both cards will also include a hash limit for Ethereum cryptocurrency mining, which Nvidia introduced earlier this month on newly manufactured RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti cards to try and make them less valuable to those that want the cards to mine Ethereum.
As with previous releases in the RTX 30 line, it will be challenging to buy either of these GPUs, with a global chip shortage inflating the prices of the RTX 30-series. Despite this, demand for the cards remains unprecedented, and Nvidia expects supplies for its graphics cards to remain an issue until "the second half of the year."
