The RTX 3060 is Nvidia’s latest 3000 series GPU. Even if it (ever…) comes into stock at $330 USD, it will struggle to match the groundbreaking 3060 Ti in terms of value for money. Nvidia’s new Ampere architecture, which supersedes Turing, offers both improved power efficiency and performance. The 3060 features 3,584 CUDA cores, 112 Tensor cores, it has a boost clock of 1.78 GHz, 12 GB of memory and a power draw of just 170 W. The 3060 offers similar performance to the previous generation’s 2060 Super at an 18% MSRP discount. Given the widespread issues AMD users are facing with 5000 series GPUs (blue/black screens etc.), AMD’s 6000 series GPU’s will have to see substantial price cuts and a huge marketing effort in order to gain any traction. Meanwhile PC gamers can look forward to an unparalleled gaming experience in class leading titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. At ultra settings, with ray tracing enabled, Cyberpunk 2077 redefines the boundaries of immersive gaming. It makes GTA5 look like Tetris in comparison. The combination of RTX+DLSS delivers stunning graphics that are several tiers higher than both AMD's best discrete GPUs and the upcoming consoles. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate. Nonetheless, AMD’s marketers are capable of delivering elaborate BS albeit whilst struggling to keep a straight face. Their marketing infrastructure outsold Intel in the CPU market despite a 15% performance deficit. Without an appropriate social media marketing strategy, Nvidia will probably lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Feb '21 GPUPro]

The high performance ray-tracing RTX 2080 Super follows the recent release of the 2060 Super and 2070 Super, from NVIDIA’s latest range of refreshed Turing RTX GPUs. The 2080 Super is a higher binned version of the original RTX 2080 which it replaces at the same price of $700 USD. In terms of specification changes between the two, the 2080 has 2944 CUDA cores, compared to 3072 in the 2080 Super, core and boost clocks have increased from 1515 MHz and 1710 MHz to 1650 MHz and 1815 MHz, respectively, memory bandwidth has increased from 14 Gbps to 15.5 Gbps and the TDP has increased from 215 W to 250 W. This translates to a roughly 10% effective speed advantage over the original 2080. The RTX 2080S also features Turing NVENC which is far more efficient than CPU encoding and alleviates the need for casual streamers to use a dedicated stream PC. Competition in this price bracket is in the form of the AMD’s Radeon VII, over which, early benchmarks suggest, the 2080 Super commands a 15% effective speed advantage. The RTX 2080 Super however, is not a value champion and those seeking more bang for their buck may do well to consider Nvidia’s own $500 USD RTX 2070 Super (which has 17% lower effective speed). [Jul '19 GPUPro]
