Moore’s Law Is Dead has “confirmed” that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 will be nearly (or equally) as powerful as the current king, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. This generation’s flagship performance in a cheaper, mid-tiered GPU? That sounds pretty good to us.
Assuming that this assertion pans out (we’ll find out in just a few days), prospective GeForce RTX 30 Series owners who can’t (or won’t) splurge for the expensive flagship cards will still be able to experience a relatively substantial bump in graphics performance. As we previously reported, the GeForce RTX 3070 will supposedly cost $599. That’s $600 less than what the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition debuted at back in September 2018.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is expected to utilize 8 GB of GDDR6 memory (the newer GDDR6X RAM is being reserved for the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3080). Memory speed is 16 Gbps, memory bus is 256-bit, and bandwidth is 512 GB/sec. TGP is 220 W.
Moore’s Law Is Dead also teased that we should be able to determine how much better the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3060 should be based on the RTX 3070 and RTX 2080 Ti’s equivalence. All things considered, the GeForce RTX 3090 could be shockingly powerful.
Confirming: RTX 3070 ~= RTX 2080 Ti.— Moore's Law Is Dead (@mooreslawisdead) August 24, 2020
You all can do the math on how much stronger the 3080 & 3060 are relative to this based on the previous gen 😉.
And don't worry gamers, fun things ahead for multiple tiers of shoppers before Halloween…
