Nvidia Announces RTX 3090 Ti GPU and More at CES 2022
At its CES 2022 press conference, Nvidia announced new graphics cards that target mobile and desktop gamers, as well as new partnerships that expand its GeForce Now game streaming platform.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti
The new RTX 3080 Ti mobile GPU will support 16GB of GDDR6 RAM in a mobile form factor, which Nvidia says will outpace older desktops equipped with the Titan RTX graphics. On the other hand, the less performing RTX 3070 Ti mobile-powered laptops will still give you 100fps performance at 1440p resolution. The GPU is 70% faster than the RTX 2070 Super, according to the company.
The new mobile laptops are expected to be available starting February and they will adopt Nvidia’s fourth-gun Max-Q Technology, which uses artificial intelligence to balance CPU and GPU usage. As a result, gamers can expect up to 70% more battery life with better performance.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti
The high-end RTX 3090 Ti desktop graphics is packed with 24GB of fast GDDR6X RAM running at 21Gbps, allowing it to churn out 40 teraflops for shaders, 78 teraflops for ray tracing, and 320 teraflops for AI processing. NVIDIA says "more details will be coming later this month," so we expect a small event focused on the RTX 3090 Ti to be announced soon.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050
The RTX 3050 is an entry-level GPU that supports ray tracing and better AI capabilities for mainstream desktops at a more affordable price point. It features 8GB of GDDR6 RAM. It is also said to be able to deliver 60fps gaming performance thanks to the AI and graphics cores based on Nvidia's Ampere GPU architecture. It will be available starting 27 January with a starting price of US$249 (~RM1,044).
GeForce Now Expansion
Alongside the GPUs, Nvidia has announced partnerships with At&T and Samsung. GeForce Now will work on At&T's 5G mobile network and AT&T subscribers will get to enjoy a 6-month GeForce Now Priority Membership for free on qualifying plans. Nvidia says the service delivers 120 fps at 1440p on PCs and 4K with HDR on Shield TV. Meanwhile, the partnership with Samsung brings Nvidia's cloud streaming platform to smart TVs via Samsung's Gaming Hub in the second quarter of this year.
The GeForce Now platform supports Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 5 along with more than 1,100 PC titles starting today. In addition, Nvidia also revealed upcoming game titles that will launch this year with support for RTX, DLSS, or both.
The titles are:
Escape from Tarkov (DLSS support): Launching 20 January
Rainbow Six Extraction (DLSS support): Launching 20 January
The Day Before (DLSS and Ray tracing support): Launching 4 February
Dying Light 2 Stay Human (DLSS and Ray tracing support): Launching 4 February
