Rtx 3080 ti rtx 3070 ti release
After nearly two years of anticipation and hype, Nvidia finally released its GeForce RTX 30 series GPU, calling it "the biggest performance leap in more than a decade." The new 30 series lineup includes 3 SKUs, RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, and it is speculated that more products are under development. Although this may be the case, most of the excitement surrounding the new RTX version falls on the RTX 3080 (Nvidia’s flagship gaming GPU) and RTX 3090 (BFGPU workstation/enthusiast), and many people still can’t decide between the two . .
In this article, we will take a closer look at RTX 3080 and 3090 to see which one is more likely to meet your specific needs. We will look at the price and performance (in the game and the workflow) to see if the 3090 really guarantees a price increase of nearly $800.
So there are many things to experience, let's dive in!
Before we start, let’s take a closer look at the specifications:
1815MHz Boost Clock (OC)
TRI FROZR Thermal Design
Attractive design 084
Easy to use Boost clock
Excellent build quality
High end in the price range 3080
1785 MHz Boost clock (OC)
TRI FROZ44 44 One of the best-looking cooling solutions 3090
Powerful cooling system
High clock frequency
Stellar build quality
At the high end of the price range 3090
It is safe to say that there are many obvious differences when comparing the specifications of the two GPUs side by side. 3090 provides more CUDA cores, more VRAM, higher memory interface width and higher memory bandwidth. When you put all of this together, it's no wonder that the RTX 3090 is on the shelves at a higher price. However, will this price increase destroy the value factor of this card?
Let us take a closer look.
One of the major changes that separates the new RTX 30 series from previous iterations is the Ampere architecture they build. This new architecture is based on a new 8nm manufacturing process, allowing Nvidia to increase the number of transistors in each GPU. In its simplest form, this not only makes the new RTX series more efficient, but also allows Nvidia to take the performance per watt to a new level, which is unmatched by the previous generation of ray tracing GPUs. In addition, the new 30 series is also equipped with a new RT core, third-generation tensioner core and Micron GDX VRAM (video memory). The combination of all these is expected to not only improve ray tracing performance, but also reduce loading time and increase frame rates across the board. When
compares the RTX 30 series with the 20 series, these new features add up to significantly improve performance, and Nvidia classifies it as "one of the biggest products to date." However, this still does not answer our initial question. We need to do more research to determine which 30 series card is best for you.
Not surprisingly, the RTX 3080 and 3090 provide excellent gaming performance at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolutions. Initial benchmark results showed that these two graphics cards run at 60 frames per second at 4K resolution, and the settings have maxed out, which is simply not available on previous RTX generations.
In other words, how do these two cards compare game for game? Does the RTX 3090 really warrant an $ 800 price increase on games?
Well, in most cases, the answer is simple: no.
On average, the game performance of the RTX 3090 is only increased by 10-15% at all resolutions. Therefore, if we do some simple calculations, you will pay an additional 115% of fees to get a 1015% performance increase. Now, I am not a mathematician, but these numbers do not completely mean value for money.
So where do all these extra costs come from? We need to look at the performance of the workstation to better understand the actual capabilities of the BFGPU.
Although Nvidia did not make it clear that the RTX 3090 is a replacement for TITAN RTX, a quick glance at the specifications will reveal that this is indeed the case. With 24GB of GDDR6X VRAM, the available video memory of the RTX 3090 is more than twice that of the RTX 3080. Although this can be used for high-resolution games, it is best suited for very demanding workflows and rendering scenes.
In contrast, RTX 3080 can only reach 15-20% of 3090 when processing workstation tasks classified as "heavy load" on the GPU. This is mainly due to the high VRAM capacity, which allows the 3090 to perform demanding content creation and AI research tasks more efficiently than the 3080, which only provides 10GB.
When performing 8K media rendering in DaVinci Resolve, 3090 destroyed the competition, and most of the other tested GPUs were unable to complete the task.
Therefore, on average, when testing multiple workflow tasks (including deep learning, rendering, and CAD), we found that the RTX 3090 outperformed all other GPUs. Its performance is almost twice that of Titan RTX, but its price is 1,000 dollars cheaper.
Speaking of workstation tasks, RTX 3090 absolutely ruined 3080.
So what is the main gain from all this? Well, it is quite simple. If you don't really do any rendering / deep learning processes in the gaming GPU market, then the RTX 3080 will show a better price-performance ratio - a mile. On the contrary, if you are a wealthy enthusiast looking for a combination of excellent gaming performance and high-end workstation performance, then the RTX 3090 still performs well.
