The manufacturer has completely lifted the veil on its new series of graphics cards (3070, 3080, 3090) and here is the information to remember with the added bonus of game clips.
Since it’s not just the PS5, Xbox Series X or the supposed Switch Pro, the PC also had the right to its new generation through Nvidia and the presentation of the 3070, 3080 and 3090 cards.
And in order to catch up with all that, here is a loaded summary which returns on various aspects like the characteristics, dates and prices or even games that were seen during the event.

With this series, the company is pulling out all the stops to a power gap never seen between new GPUs.
Note thatthey will support HDMI 2.1 and AVI Decode, a new codec for quietly watch your videos on the web in 8K HDR with a bandwidth savings of around 50%.
Show of strength in 1440p / 4K / 8K and via RTX IO
If consoles have to deal with the choices of developers, PCs have the freedom to adjust various parameters to suit their preferences or limitations.
Thus, Nvidia announces a 60% gain in speed for the 3070 compared to a 2070 and also a higher velocity compared to a 2080Ti. Concretely, it is there to ensure 1440p at 60fps with ray-tracing and DLSS.
The 3080 relaunches to go look directly 4K 60fps with ray-tracing and DLSS.
The 3090 closes the ball by being the queen with a 50% gain in speed compared to the Titan RTX, while being 10 times quieter and an temperature down 30 degrees. With her we rather go on from 8K to 60fps.
Moreover, the RTX IO will titillate Sony’s next-gen and Microsoft allowing “Fast loading and decompression of gaming resources based on GPU, accelerating I / O performance up to 100 times compared to hard drives and traditional storage APIs”. This will also work and will be based on the use of an Nvme SSD and the DirectStorage API from the Redmond firm.
Prices, release dates and bonuses
Obviously, these new toys for older children will not be offered at identical prices, but this year, Nvidia has made sure to Relieve the wallet of PC gamers while drastically improving performance.
Therefore, here is prices for the three models :

- Geforce RTX 3080 will be sold to 719 euros
- Geforce RTX 3090 will be sold to 1 549 euros
And their availability dates :
- Geforce RTX 3080 will be accessible from September 17th
- Geforce RTX 3090 will be accessible from September 24
- Geforce RTX 3070 will be accessible from October
Bonus for a limited period :
If you are one of the first buyers to rush on you, you will walk away with a free copy of Watch Dogs Legion in addition to a year of Geforce Now subscription, the manufacturer’s cloud gaming service.
A trio of technologies
Regardless of all the numbers that can make your head spin, Nvidia also had other things up its sleeve aimed at more specific audiences, those focusing on streamers, esports aces and those who instead take advantage of their stuff for professional use.
Nvidia Broadcast for streamers :
Whether you are a beginner or a confirmed streamer, the care taken in your broadcasts is essential to your success.
Behind the name of Nvidia hides in truth a plugin which, on paper, promises to provide increased quality for your microphone and webcam through AI effects such as audio noise cancellation, virtual background effects but also auto-frame. the camera. The auto-frame allows your accessory to be replaced without manual action on your part.
Nvidia Reflex to best challenge your opponents :
When it comes to competition, alone in your room or in a large hall for an eSport tournament, responsiveness comes first. Via various techniques, the idea is therefore to work on this to optimize and measure the system latency.
There is also the Nvidia Reflex Latency Analyzer here “Detects input from the mouse and then measures the time taken for the resulting pixels”. A technique to be found this fall in Nvidia G-Sync 360 Hz screens (at Acer, Alienware, ASUS and MSI), monitors “Supported by major esports devices from ASUS, Logitech, Razer and SteelSeries”.
Nvidia Omniverse Machinima :
This time, it is about giving the most creative people the opportunity to create cutscenes from game assets, adding vocals and ultimately telling their story.
Cool the beast
Even though they are imposing, Nvidia highlights revised board design to leave more room for components and cooling, which should be 2 times more efficient than in the past for a profit in terms of heat and noise.
The application in games
To avoid having only graphics and imposing numbers, the company has reserved a game section with trailers from Cyberpunk 2077, Fortnite, Minecraft for the update “Portal Pioneers” and Watch Dogs Legion, but also a new trailer of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
