NVIDIA live streamed a prerecorded video at 12PM EST or 9.30PM IST featuring it's Co-Founder and CEO, Jensen Huang on their official NVIDIA GeForce Page, NVIDIA GeForce YouTube Channel, Official Facebook Page, Twitch and Twitter.


In the show Jensen Huang started off with announcing Fortnite with  Ray Tracing, then he announced NVIDIA Reflex technology, NVIDIA G-Sync Esport Displays (360Hz IPS Panel), NVIDIA Broadcast, NVIDIA Omniverse Machinima, RTX IO.


After all those announcements came the moment which everybody was waiting for, the reveal of the next gen RTX cards, the RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and the RTX 3070 were revealed with the specifications. Let's start with the RTX cards and then talk about the other technologies revealed later.

NVIDIA also announced a Give Away on their official NVIDIA GeForce Twitter account.

As you can look at the slide show images above, in my opinion, the RTX 3080 looks gorgeous. This card comes with 10GB of GDDR6X memory.  Jensen Huang in his leather jacket said and we quote

The 3080 flow through system is 3 times quieter and keeps the GPU 20° cooler than the Turing design. It can cool 90W more than Turing.

Man, the card is going to suck in so much power and I am expecting them to give that level of performance improvements over the Turing based counterpart RTX 2080 Super.

NVIDIA is claiming RTX 3080 will be twice the performance of RTX 2080 at the same price. "Wait what?", you say? Yeah you heard it right, the rumours were wrong on the pricing. The RTX 3080 will replace the RTX 2080 at the same price at $699 USD or ₹71,000 INR. NVIDIA claimed the following performance numbers for the card: 30 Shader-TFLOPS, 58 RT-TFLOPS, and 128 Tensor-TFLOPS.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 will be available to buy for consumers starting September 17th though there was no mention when the cards will be available from AIB partners.

For RTX 3070 NVIDIA is claiming more performance than of the RTX 2080Ti at less than half the price coming in at $499 USD or ₹51,000 INR, yes the same price as the RTX 2070 Super. The RTX 3070 is set to have 8GB of GDDR6 Memory. NVIDIA claimed the following performance numbers for the 3070: 20 Shader-TFLOPS, 40 RT-TFLOPS, 143 Tensor-TFLOPS. RTX 3070 will be available in October according to NVIDIA but there is no exact date of availability for purchase as of yet.

Regarding performance difference between the Ampere based RTX 3000 series and Pascal based GTX 1000 Series, Jensen Huang claimed and we quote

Gamers wanted more, they want every generation to be more realistic and higher frame rate at the same time. So we doubled down on everything, twice the Shader, twice the Ray-Tracing and twice the Tensor-Core - "The Triple Double". Ampere knocks the day-light out of Pascal on Ray-Tracing and even with Ray-Tracing on crushes Pascal in frame rate. To all my Pascal Gamer Friends, it is safe to upgrade now.

We would definitely recommend you to wait for the reviews for the cards to come out before you make a buying decision.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090:


And then came the mother of all, from Jensen Huang's Oven, the RTX 3090. NVIDIA is calling it a TITAN replacement and this card should be available via board partners unlike the TITAN cards which were NVIDIA exclusive. It's a 3 slot card as was previously seen in the leaked images and is a beast with a huge size.

NVIDIA claimed the following performance numbers for RTX 3090: 36 Shader-TFLOPS, 69 RT-TFLOPS, 285 Tensor-TFLOPS. The cards comes with a whopping 24GB of GDDR6X memory. NVIDIA priced it at $1,499 USD or ₹152,000 INR which is $100 more than the leaks suggested. The card will be available to buy from September 24 from both NVIDIA and it's AIB partners.


Talking about the 3-slot card and it's cooler design and more capabilities Jensen Huang said and we quote

It comes with a silencer. A 2-Slot Dual Axial flow through  design. 10x times quieter and keeps the GPU 30° cooler than the Titan RTX design. But there is more, the 3090 is so big, that for the very first time we can play games at 60fps at 8K. It's insane.

INDIA Pricing:
