Several leaks revealed performance comparisons and price MSRP for the next generation of GeForce GPUs, hinting it might be best to wait until they release if you are looking to upgrade.
Numerous next-gen GeForce GPU-related leaks occurred in the past week, apparently originating from card manufacturers such as Zotac and Gainward. There were also indicators that the series 30 GPUs would be unveiled on September 1, 2020, which now seems confirmed by Nvidia.
The main question on everyone's mind is probably the pricing and the performance of each new card.
The lineup and pricing of RTX 30 series consists of:
- RTX 3060 (MSRP $399)
- RTX 3070 (MSRP $599)
- RTX 3080 (MSRP $799)
- RTX 3090 (MSRP $1399)
If these price tags turn out to be true, it will mean they have gone up across the board, compared to the inaugural RTX generation. However, given the generation switch in consoles that will happen around the same time as the new generation of RTX cards, things may not be as gloomy.
According to the tech YouTuber and analyst Moore's Law is Dead, RTX 3070 will have roughly the same performance as RTX 2080 Ti. With MSRP of $599 compared to 2080 Ti's $999+, the benefits of waiting for next-gen are more than obvious.
Compared to the next-gen consoles' power, an RTX 2080 Ti exceeds their performance by a healthy amount, meaning that keeping up with the generation shift will not be that expensive for those who opt-in for an RTX 3070.
While we always suggest taking unofficial info with a grain of salt, it appears that all of the aforementioned info has been confirmed. Zotac leaked 3090 Trinity , followed by Gainward jumping the gun for their 3080 and 3090 lineup .
On top of that, Nvidia is hyping things up with the #UltimateCountdown on Twitter, which pretty much confirms the September 1 reveal.
