Last September, NVIDIA debuted its next-gen GeForce RTX 3070 and 3080 graphics cards to immense popularity and demand, with the GPUs selling out at extremely quick rates and those left without one facing re-selling prices upward of $80,000 USD. Fortunately for those who were patient, the tech company has now unveiled the Ti variants of the two cards, bringing more options to the market.
As usual, the Ti models get an extra performance boost over their standard counterparts, and similarly, the RTX 3080 Ti stands above the RTX 3070 Ti. The former card powered by 34 Shader-TFLOPS, 67 RT-TFLOPS, 273 Tensor-TFLOPS, and 12GB of GDDR6X, while the latter runs on 22 Shader-TFLOPS, 42 RT-TFLOPS, 174 Tensor-TFLOPS and 8GB of GDDR6X. Both cards will support the regular graphics features you’ll expect, including ray tracing and NVIDIA’s DLSS performance-boosting AI.
Of course, there’ll be a clear price difference between the two as well: the 3080 Ti going for $1,200 USD, whereas the 3070 Ti is at a much more affordable $600 USD — just half of its more powerful sibling. As for availability, the higher-tiered card yet will launch on June 3, and the lower-tiered model will release sometime next week.
