NVIDIA has a new family of graphics cards that put its previous products to shame. The $1,499 RTX 3090 has us drooling, but even the RTX 3070 is faster than a 2080Ti for just $499.
NVIDIA’s RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090 arrive to take the graphics processing crown
The 3090 has 24GB of RAM and is 50 percent faster than a Titan RTX.
After teases, leaks and rumors, the NVIDIA 30 Series RTX GPUs are here. That’s good news for almost everyone, except maybe anyone who just finished a high-priced PC build using a formerly top-of-the-line 2080Ti graphics setup.
That’s because the 30 Series uses new Ampere architecture, which blows away the floating point performance of its older Turing technology. These cards can pack up to 24GB of RAM and, at the high-end, the $1,499 RTX 3090 card is ready for 8K gaming at 60 fps.
Meanwhile, there are lower-priced options, and even the $499 RTX 3070 will outperform a 2080Ti once it ships in October. Like the 3090, the RTX 3080 will have Micron’s latest GDDR6X memory on board and go on sale September 17th for $699.

Fortunately, we not only have the breakdown of specs and features, Cherlynn Low and Chris Velazco did a live streamed hands-on session, so you can see Samsung’s latest foldable phone in action.
Take a few minutes and check out the “advanced” Multi-Active Window multitasking, or how apps like Microsoft Office fill the extra space and even add a PC-like toolbar at the top. The price has gone up $20 from the original, but the software might make a dual-screen experience worthwhile this time.
