Reviews will follow later this week and it will be interesting to see how Ampere performs in real-world scenarios. It's expected that ray-tracing performance will be massively higher, which should spur adoption of RTX technology. Up until now, ray tracing wasn't really a priority for most gamers but that could change if the performance cost is a lot lower. Furthermore, with AMD and Intel also jumping on the ray tracing train it's certain that this technology will become more important in the future. But still, we're very interested in seeing how much better Ampere is with RTX and DLSS disabled.
As we noted yesterday, the GeForce RTX 3080 will hit the market on September 17th for $699. That's a lower price point than a lot of people feared. In Europe, the pricing of this model will be 719EUR for the NVIDIA Founders Edition.
The next card to drop is the GeForce RTX 3090 on September 24th. This model costs $1,499. That sounds like a lot for the new flagship but it should be noted that this is actually the replacement for the TITAN series. European pricing is 1549EUR.
The GeForce RTX 3070 will follow sometime in October for $499, which translates to 519EUR in Europe. If NVIDIA's claims are accurate this model could become very popular.
There's no word about the RTX 3060 (and lower), perhaps it will launch sometime later this year.
