All eyes were on Nvidia this afternoon, and for good reason: after many rumors circulating in recent weeks, many expected Jeff Fisher, the boss of the firm, to lift the veil on the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. This was the case, in a way: if the GPU is now official, nothing more is known about it, except that it is presented as “A monster of power”. We will have to wait to find out more.
The GeForce RTX 3050, on the other hand, was more revealed. Based on Ampere, this card is equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and embark 2560 computing units. It is designed for optimal performance at 1080p and supports Ray Tracing and DLSS. “For the first time, you can run ray-traced games on a class 50 GPU, at over 60 frames per second” announces the builder. This graphics card will be commercially available on January 27, 2024, from 249 dollars.
Nvidia also announced that 160 new laptops will be released in the coming months, with built-in RTX 30 series GPUs. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti are now in the game, notably at Asus, MSI and Razer. “With the latest RTX GPUs, these laptops are on average 7 times faster for 3D rendering than the latest MacBook Pro 16”, boasts the builder.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU presents itself as a muscular solution, equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, the fastest ever offered in a gaming laptop PC. Obviously, you will have to spend a good amount of money to equip yourself with a computer that will have one since the prices will start from 2499 dollars. Configurations equipped with a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will be available from $ 1,499. The equipped machines will arrive on the market from February 2024.
Nvidia took advantage of its conference to lift the veil on a selection of new RTX / DLSS compatible: the latter use GPU-accelerated ray tracing, and / or Nvidia DLSS technologies. This allows you to benefit from great improvements and optimal immersion. Many of the titles announced have yet to be released.
Finally, GeForce Now has not been forgotten: Nvidia has announced the arrival of Battlefield 4 and Battlefield V within its streaming games service, confirming the development of its partnership with Electronic Arts.
In addition, the arrival of Nvidia GeForce Now on Samsung televisions has been confirmed: we already knew it since the South Korean manufacturer had sold the wick yesterday. We now know that Smart TVs running TizenOS will benefit from it from the second quarter of 2024, but only new Samsung TVs should be affected.
