Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 2080 Ti: which 4K graphics card is better?

The new Nvidia RTX 3080 may still be almost impossible to get hold of, but as an indicator of what the next generation of 4K graphics cards have in store for us, it's definitely one to watch for anyone looking to upgrade their PC in the coming months.

Feature: Nvidia's flagship RTX cards go head to head

Nvidia RTX 3080 vs 2080: how much faster is Nvidia’s new Ampere GPU?

You may not be able to buy it anywhere right now, but Nvidia's new RTX 3080 GPU has very much set the bar for next-gen graphics cards. It represents a significant leap over the existing RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Super, both at 4K and lower resolutions, and it's hands down one of the best graphics cards Nvidia's ever made. But just how much faster…

Here’s where you can buy an RTX 3090, along with the 8K TV you’ll need to go with it

Update: many retailers are now out of stock of the RTX 3090, so here's an update on UK and US availability.Nvidia's monstrous RTX 3090 is upon us. Launching today at 6am PT / 2pm BST, Nvidia's so-called "BFGPU" will allegedly bring 8K gaming to the masses - a rather pointless endeavour if you ask me, especially since the only 8K displays you can actually buy…

Nvidia have issued their second apology this week, this time for the launch of the RTX 3090. The so-called "BFGPU" isn't due to go on sale until 6am PT / 2pm BST later today, September 24th, but Nvidia's apology confirms previous reports that there will be a "limited supply" of GPUs available when it goes on sale.

Feature: We test the Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 OC

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 review

On paper, Nvidia's new GeForce RTX 3080 lays claim to a lot of sexy headlines. Its 4K gaming performance is significantly faster than its immediate and identically priced predecessor, the RTX 2080, and it even beats Nvidia's previous flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti, offering 4K 60fps speeds on max settings in almost all of today's top games for almost half the money - at least…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090: release date, where to buy, price and specs

The RTX 3090 is almost here. Dubbed the "BFGPU" of the new Nvidia Ampere family (that's a reference to Doom's BFG, in case you're wondering), the RTX 3090 is set to be the world's fastest graphics card when it launches this Thursday, September 24th, thanks to its ability to play and capture games in 8K - a feat which sounds impressive until you realise that…

Nvidia apologise for RTX 3080 launch, saying “we were not prepared”

Nvidia have apologised for last week's "frustrating" RTX 3080 launch, stating that demand for their new flagship GPU was "overwhelming" and that "we were not prepared for this level [of enthusiasm], nor were our partners." The apology was posted on their GeForce blog earlier today, answering community questions such as what the overall RTX 3080 stock situation is like at the moment, and why their…

Here’s where you can actually buy an RTX 3080 right now

The RTX 3080 went on sale yesterday for seemingly all two minutes before it vanished into a puff of broken websites, out of stock stickers and ludicrous Ebay scalpers. Many retailers are still struggling to cope with demand, too - indeed, Newegg have said that they experienced more traffic than the morning of chuffin' Black Friday yesterday, and that their entire RTX 3080 inventory sold…

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070: release date, price, specs

Nvidia’s RTX 3080 and 3090 cards could be in short supply until 2021

If you're planning on upgrading your graphics card to one of the new Nvidia Ampere RTX 3000 cards over the next couple of months you might find it rather difficult to get hold of one until early next year. According to a new report from Tweaktown, industry sources have said the first wave of RTX 3080, RTX 3090 and RTX 3070 GPUs will be much…

Only Nvidia’s RTX 30 Founders Edition GPUs will have dual axial fans and 12-pin power cables

Official images of third party Nvidia RTX 3000 cards show that the unusual dual axial fan and 12-pin power connector design shown off during last night's Nvidia Ampere reveal will only be found on the Nvidia Founders Editions of each card. The double-sided fans of the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 are arguably one of the most striking features of Nvidia's next-gen graphics…

Cyberpunk 2077 and COD Cold War’s new ray tracing trailers make me long for darkness

Hot off the heels of last night's Nvidia Ampere reveal, we also got new ray tracing trailers for Cyberpunk 2077, Minecraft, Watch Dogs Legion, and the newly announced Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. I've collected them altogether below, but the Cyberpunk 2077 one is particularly shiny, if only because it's a new "max settings 4K trailer" showing CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG at…

Nvidia’s RTX 3000 GPUs will come with Watch Dogs Legion and a year of GeForce Now for free

If the comparatively low prices of the new Nvidia Ampere RTX 3000 graphics cards weren't already enough to tempt you into upgrading your GPU this year, then Nvidia's freshly-announced RTX 3000 bundle will no doubt sweeten the deal further. I mean, RTX 2080 Ti-level performance for £469 / $499 on the RTX 3070 is already a tantalising proposition, I must admit, but anyone who buys…

Fortnite is getting ray tracing and DLSS support for some reason

The number of confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games is still pretty small at time of writing, but today's big Nvidia Ampere reveal added another key addition to the slowly growing line-up: Fortnite. I'm not entirely sure why, given its art style largely consists of big, blocky worlds and colourful cartoon characters, but hey, if you've been particularly looking forward to doing battle with Fortnite's…

Nvidia’s Ampere RTX 3000 teaser pretty much confirms everything we already knew

After several days of rumours, Nvidia have confirmed that the Founders Editions of their upcoming Ampere RTX 3000 series GPUs will indeed have a new 12-pin power connector.

Nvidia’s RTX 3090 looks absolutely enormous in leaked pictures, plus 12-pin power connector confirmed

There's just one week to go until Nvidia ends their Ultimate Countdown campaign in the run-up to the launch of their next-gen Nvidia Ampere cards, but it would appear that the top graphics card in their new RTX 3000 family, the supposed RTX 3090, has already been snapped in the wild - and it's positively monstrous to boot.

Nvidia look set to reveal their RTX 3000 Ampere GPUs on August 31st

The next generation of Nvidia Ampere RTX 3000 graphics cards could be revealed on August 31st if a new cryptic tweet from the GPU maker is anything to go by, as they've just started the #UltimateCountdown to something big in 21 days time. The tweet itself contains nothing but an ellipsis, the aforementioned hashtag and a short clip of a 'Big Bang' style explosion, but…
