NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series Release Date, Price, Specs

MSI is a household name when it comes to gaming. Mostly known for their wide range of gaming laptops, they also manufacture everything from gaming headphones to motherboards and everything in between. They even sponsor a number of esports gaming communities going as far as hosting one of their own gaming tournaments. So, it’s no news that MSI is one of the leading manufacturers of graphics cards as well.


 The PS5 and Xbox Series X might be targeting 4K gaming, but Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards could really bring ultra-high resolution graphics into the mainstream. It was assumed that  we could see a potential Nvidia Ampere release date on  August, but Nvidia have now confirmed they will be holding a special GeForce event on September 1st, most likely to officially unveil their next-gen line-up of new RTX 3000 cards. A proper release, though, isn’t likely to come until sometime later in September, and that’s what’s currently doing the rounds online, too.


If we compare the rumored base price of the GeForce RTX 3090 with the base price of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, you can see a price bump of 40%. Founders Edition pricing would be a 25% bump over Turing. The main reason for the price bump could be associated with the massive amounts of G6X VRAM that the RTX 3090 incorporates. While the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti featured 11 GB of GDDR6, the GeForce RTX 3090 is expected to feature an insane 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. That's more than 2X the memory buffer which also operates at much higher clock rates for higher bandwidth and along a wider bus too.


The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is also going to make use of the GA102 GPU core which is rumored to deliver up to 40-50% performance jump over the RTX 2080 Ti. The GeForce RTX 3090 will be the king of the hill for NVIDIA and they are definitely going all out with its insane specifications hence the pricing has also gone up. This however causes some concern in the enthusiast segment as we can get custom variants that might cost north of $1500 US.


The latest rumor comes from Wjm47196 who has a history of leaks/rumors that turned out to be true. He has now posted on Chiphell forums that NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 is going to feature a starting price of $1399 US. This is $200 US more than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti which had a price of $1199 US for the Founders Edition. It is stated that this is the starting price as the Founders Edition of the GeForce RTX 3090 could cost an extra $100 which should put the price of the card at $1499 US.
