Nvidia announces new RTX 3080 GPU, priced at $699 and launching September 17th

Nvidia is unveiling its new GeForce RTX 3000 series graphics cards today.

Nvidia has been teasing these new cards for weeks, and there have also been plenty of leaks before the RTX 3080 was made official today.

It includes a dual-fan setup that is designed to improve airflow by more than 55 percent, with promises of much quieter and more efficient cooling.

The performance bump will also put the RTX 3070 comfortably above the 1080 Ti and 1080 cards for 1440p gaming.

Nvidia is using 5,888 CUDA cores on the RTX 3080, combined with a 1.71Ghz boost clock and 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

The RTX 3090 is more akin to the Titan line of Nvidia cards, and includes a massive 24GB of GDDR6X memory.
