The GeForce RTX 3090, aka the “big ferocious GPU”, is Nvidia’s flagship graphics card. The GPU features a new dual-axial airflow design with one fan on the front and another on the rear. Nvidia said that this design, coupled with a triple-slot cooler, will make the GeForce RTX 3090 10x quieter and up to 30 […]
At today’s launch event, however, the company really hit mainstream gamers with the news that Epic Games’ Fortnite is adding support for RTX starting with the Marvel character-themed Chapter 2, Season 4 release, which was just unveiled late last week. Ray tracing support will be across four areas, including reflections, shadows, global illumination, and ambient […]

The RTX 3090 already looks like it will deliver incredible performance. Nvidia says it’s 50% faster than the outgoing RTX 2080 Ti, though the theoretical TFLOPS is actually 165% higher. But memory bandwidth is only 52% higher and may be a limiting factor. Regardless, it’s going to be interesting to see how far the average […]
Nvidia claims this cooling solution lowers temperatures by about 20C on the RTX 3080, and 30C for the RTX 3090 when compared to 20-series founders coolers designed for the RTX 2080 and TITAN RTX (and that’s if they were running at their Ampere-equivalents TDPs). Nvidia also says the new design reduces noise levels – the […]

Nvidia haven’t announced an exact release date just yet, but I will update this article with a firm date as soon as it’s available. It’s widely expected that both the Nvidia Founders Edition of the RTX 3070 as well as third party versions […]
Turing added RT cores and Tensor cores, for ray tracing ray/triangle intersection calculations and deep learning FP16 calculations, respectively. Beyond the RT and Tensor cores, the CUDA core is the major GPU hardware in Nvidia graphics cards. For Turing, Nvidia switched from having 128 CUDA cores per SM to 64 CUDA cores. Turing also added […]
This powerful flagship is expected to ship with a whopping 24GB of video memory with a memory clock of 19.5 Gbps, as well as 5,248 cores. The design makes use of a 384-bit bus, giving it a maximum bandwidth of 936 GB/s. Though prior leaks suggested that this card will move to a new 12-pin […]
