The RTX 3090 is Nvidia’s 3000 series flagship. It takes the crown as the fastest consumer graphics card money can buy. Nvidia’s new Ampere architecture, which supersedes Turing, offers both improved power efficiency and performance. The 3090 features 10,496 CUDA cores and 328 Tensor cores, it has a base clock of 1.4 GHz boosting to 1.7 GHz, 24 GB of memory and a power draw of 350 W. The 3090 offers more than double the memory and beats the previous generation’s flagship RTX 2080 Ti significantly in terms of effective speed. That said, the 3090 also comes with a hefty $1,500 price tag. Professional users, such as game developers, that can make use of 24 GB of memory, may find value in the 3090. Regular users should be wary of the hype around 8k gaming. High end gamers ought to consider the 3080 which offers comparable gaming performance for less than half the money. 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. [Sep '20 GPUPro]

The 6GB RTX 2060 is the latest addition to Nvidia’s RTX series of graphics card which are based on their Turing architecture. Turing features AI enhanced graphics and real time ray tracing which is intended to eventually deliver a more realistic gaming experience. The 2060 has 1920 CUDA cores and 336GB/s of GDRR6 memory bandwidth. With a launch price of $350 for the Founders Edition, the 2060 offered the best value for money amongst the RTX range and somewhat redeemed Nvidia from their earlier RTX releases (2070, 2080, 2080 Ti) which were unrealistically priced. The RTX 2060 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. The 2060 is capable of delivering 100+ EFps in almost all of today’s popular games at 1080p with maximum details. This should more than satisfy the majority of 1080p gamers including those who play at 144Hz. Rapidly diminishing returns lie beyond the 2060’s price point of $325 and they are not worth it for the majority of gamers that play at or below 1080p. For gamers that play at 1440p the next step up would be to the $400 2060S[Nov '19 GPUPro]
