NVIDIA revealed a handful of upcoming products during its CES 2022 Special Address. They include new graphics cards such as the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and GeForce RTX 3050, as well as new laptop GPUs such as the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

GeForce RTX 3090 Ti

While not much of a secret, NVIDIA’s Jeff Fisher confirmed the existence of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti during the company’s special address, calling it a “monster of a GPU.” Pricing and date of availability are still unclear, but some of its specifications were teased, which include 10,752 CUDA cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. The TDP is 450 watts.

GeForce RTX 3050

The GeForce RTX 3050 is NVIDIA’s latest option for gamers who want to enter Ampere on a budget. It will be available beginning on January 27 for an MSRP of $249.

NVIDIA CUDA Cores2560
Boost Clock1.78 GHz
Memory Size8 GB
Memory TypeGDDR6

“GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards come equipped with 2nd generation RT Cores for ray tracing and 3rd gen Tensor Cores for DLSS and AI,” the company wrote before promising that it can play games at 60 FPS with ray tracing enabled.

“For the first time, you can play ray traced games on a 50-class GPU at over 60 FPS. RTX-powered ray tracing and DLSS are the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes them more accessible than ever. It further comes equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 memory.”

GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti Gaming and Studio Laptops

NVIDIA’s family of laptop GPUs grew larger today with the introduction of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti for mobile computing. According to the company, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU is faster than a TITAN RTX, while the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU is no slouch either, being up to 70 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER. Both of them feature the 4th generation of Max-Q, which comprises new technologies such as CPU Optimizer and Rapid Core Scaling.

  1. Pretty sure NVIDIA had a typo for the RTX 3050. With today’s market it should probably read $2490.00.

  2. Meh.

    I don’t care about new products. I care about availability. We still can’t buy what was released a year and a half ago.

    If new products bring availability – then I’m excited. But no mention of any of that really. So I just assume all of these will be bought in bulk by the same bots/scalpers/miners, and we’ll continue to see the status quo of most gamers getting locked out.

    Sad but true.

  4. At this point I think it is going to start hurting tech sites and ‘influencers’ as well. Because I’m not interested in new product reviews for products I can’t buy anyway.

  5. I’ve been pretty lucky with the Newegg Shuffle so far. You just have to enter it every-single-day it’s available.

    It’s not starting, they are already having a bad time Linus even had to use a RTX2080Ti in a recent build as he can’t get 3000 series anymore and this guy even managed to sell cards to “gamers” for a while.

    Seems most of them are already seeing dropped viewer counts and subs and are looking for new angles to keep things going. Yeah yeah, I know I watch way too much youtube while leveling alts in wow.

    The bad thing in Europe is that the stores themselves are scalping and we don’t have newegg and Amazon over here sucks for tech stuff.

    I did sign up on EVGA’s list but who knows if that is ever going to amount to anything, not that I need another 3080 just curious if I’ll ever get an update for future reference as EVGA is not that big a player over here, their shipments are even shipped from Taiwan to Europe, nothing local here.

    As of late they haven’t been any better. Both allow 3rd party sales, so people just bot-buy the official stock and relist it marked up.

    I guess you have Shuffle, which was a great idea. But even that has been crappy – it has a great selection of:
    — the stuff they can’t give away on Deal of the Day,
    — overpriced/marked up low end parts, and
    — just a couple of decent parts with suspected extremely low inventory just so they can keep people singing up.

    Yeah I’d say this was your best bet, but even this moves at a glacial pace — and if you didn’t sign up on Day 1, you’re already out of luck. EVGA changed the queue and kicked a lot of people out (only allowed to be queued for 2 SKUs now), and the non-top end queues just aren’t moving. But, curiously, you see a good deal of the mid-end EVGA stuff pop up in Newegg Shuffle….

    I tried every day for about a year with no luck. Finally, on the day I could’ve gotten something I was out in the field with no internet to respond with, and even then it wasn’t something I really wanted for myself as I was also trying to help David look for review inventory. I stopped checking the shuffle for the very reasons you listed. After a while, it seemed like I was going to have to buy at a scalpers price just by getting something a combo with parts I couldn’t use and then have the burden to unload. About six months ago I noticed a legitimate company I used over the years to buy laptops(XOTIC PC) suddenly had a stock of SUPRIM 3090s. They were marked up by about $400+ but I still pulled the trigger. Of course, I’m not thrilled with the price but neither do I have any regrets about getting what I was after. It was still about $1K-$2K less than what I’ve seen scalpers selling for. I also remember trying to get on when BB unveiled orders only to be beaten by bots. So many carts that I watched go empty after a clicked purchase.

    I really can’t fault ‘gouging’. Even on Ebay.

    Business is business and it’s essentially impossible to sort ‘legitimate’ purchasers (gamers, content creators) from what we would like to think are illegitimate purchasers (miners). The cross-section of miners and gamers also likely has significant overlap, especially when we start talking about gamers that build their own systems.

    And there’s nothing stopping your average gamer from becoming a miner themselves, so you start getting into the situation of trying to police thoughtcrime.

    It won’t matter to him – that day when the market adjusts is exactly why they’re making the bank they can now.

    If you recall the various struggling efforts that AMD went through due to cash flow shortages, that’s why companies aren’t doing ‘more’. No one – especially not with an ego the size of Jensen Huang’s – wants to be [I]there[/I].

    Yeah, we don’t even have a chance of catching something near msrp, the lowest I’ve seen for a 3080 was around $2000. but now it’s pushing $3000 at the stores for most variants, with 3090 being twice that.

    Anyone who starts mining on their gaming pc can hand in their gaming card as far as I’m concerned they are miners at that point, not gamers. And I’ll treat them with the appropriate level of contempt.

    And no, “but I just want to recoup some of the price” is no excuse. Mining has shown to me that most people are awful, and if they can get away with doing the awful thing they’ll do it without hesitation for personal gain. To me this shows that if armed robbery had the same risk level they’d do that too.

    Yes, but even their prices are out of whack on certain hardware. Had to send back that 3080Ti I got from them since it was priced where it was and I couldn’t see it for what I had in it to help someone else out. It’s just the market we’re in unfortunately.

    The AMD 6500XT will likely be in good stock – I can now walk in and purchase any AMD model I want at micro center, so I expect it to be the same with the 6500XT.

    Unfortunately, what I really want is to upgrade my 1080Ti that is currently used for folding at home and for my daughter to play the occasional game on. I could replace it with a 6900 and it would boost game performance (not that Untitled Goose Game needs better than a 1080ti), but it would be a minimal upgrade for folding@home.

    At MSRP? I don’t have a MC local, but just a quick look at the website – the 6900 isn’t terrible – the MSRP there ranges from $1k to $1500 depending on model, but a 6700 at $900? That’s 2x MSRP. 6600 MSRP is $329, that’s a $150 markup.

    So yeah.. they are “available” but I think they are priced so that demand matches supply…

    All those prices are AIB MSRP aren’t they?

    edit to say that finding AIB MSRP is dramatically more difficult than it used to be. I did find a review that listed the Asus Strix 6700XT at 930, so 899 for the Tuf version is probably what Asus is suggesting for a sale price. I don’t think the “MSRP” listed by either AMD or NVIDIA is realistic and isn’t really worth discussing – obviously the cards aren’t available at those prices anywhere.

    I agree with that. MSRP is mostly just a way for the manufacturer to try to define value. It’s only “suggested” after all. The dynamics of supply and demand in the market will always determine the real “value” — and my suspicion is that the prices are so high on these units because the supply isn’t there – the market has ramped the price up so that sales match supply.

    edit*
    And while you obviously see some people willing to buy at those levels, I think for the vast majority of gamers, they don’t see the value at those prices. My opinion there, maybe I’m just screaming for kids to get off my lawn wishing things would roll back to the way things where, and we’ll never get back there.

    AMD is selling 6700XT’s at around 500€ which is up almost 100 from around a year ago, doubt 899 is MSRP for a TUF model maybe a 6800XT.

    Prices have been bad for so long that perception of what they should be seems somewhat off

    More than likely it’s why all the AIBs have removed MSRP from their webpages. I wouldn’t be entirely shocked if what they charge distributors varies by month.

    in other news for me, my evga waitlist for a 3070ti just arrived. After associate code it was 799 or something close so I grabbed it. Anyone have a recommendation for waterblock?

    Anyone have a recommendation for waterblock?
    [/QUOTE]
    [USER=6]@Dan_D[/USER], something you could provide an opinion on?

  27. I was hoping that the Optimus absolute FTW block included the 3070ti, but its 3080, 3080ti, and 3090 only. I’ve been using optimus for my blocks the last several years. Prior to Optimus, I used EK, but had significant issues with EK nickel coating that never got resolved, so I vowed to not use EK anymore.

    Edit
    I may need to eat my words on the EK vow, as so far its the only company I’ve seen with a compatible waterblock.

  28. I’ve got a full front/back EK waterblock for my 3090. Seems to be a good design. Won’t know how well it cools the GPU until I get the system finished.

    So much to do, so little time to do it.

  29. Looks like the EVGA 3070 FTW3 versions of the EK Quantum vector and the Alpha cool Eisblock Aurora will fit, though reviews I’ve seen of the Eisblock mention problems with cooling the ram.
