And two new video cards.
Nvidia held a Computex 2021 presentation, which showed updated games with RTX and introduced the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti graphics cards.
RTX technologies – ray tracing and DLSS – are used to give realistic lighting to any picture. Real-time ray tracing takes a lot of resources, so Nvidia created DLSS, a neural network that changes resolution without “soap” and quality loss. Both technologies now support more than 130 games and applications. Nvidia has plans to add RTX to 8 more games.
They showed the gameplay of Doom Eternal in 4K with ray tracing on 3080 Ti. The update should arrive this month.
Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rainbow Six: Siege will feature DLSS technology. In the first case, the game will become even more beautiful without spending monstrous performance resources, and the importance of speed for an online shooter does not need to be explained.
LEGO Builder’s Journey will also get ray tracing and smart anti-aliasing. It will release on PC on June 22. The same technologies will get the first-person puzzle game DYING: 1983 (trailer), the shooter The Ascent (trailer), which comes out on June 29, the survival game from the creator of DayZ (trailer) and the expanded edition of The Persistence (trailer).
Fortnite is getting a new creative map that will showcase the power of RTX in all its glory. In the middle of the map will be a giant RTX 3080 Ti model. And if you went to Fortnite not only to admire, but also to play, then at this location you can fight in the Gun Game mode, which supports up to 12 people.
An important part of the presentation is devoted to the demonstration of Nvidia Reflex, which allows you to dynamically reduce the delay in games. It will be added to Escape From Tarkov, War Thunder, CrossFire HD, and Naraka: Bladepoint soon. The company shared plans: Reflex will receive 15 more of the most popular multiplayer titles like Apex Legends, Valorant, CoD: Warzone, etc.
Nvidia showed how cyberpunk action Ghostrunner managed to reduce latency on different graphics cards using Reflex.
And finally, what everyone was waiting for – a demonstration of the Ti versions for the Nvidia RTX 3070 and 3080.
The company has promised that the 3080 Ti will be 1.5 times faster than the 2080 Ti. And here is a comparison with the closest competitors from the same line.
The RTX 3080 Ti will go on sale June 3rd with a suggested retail price of $1,199. The recommended price of 3070 Ti is $599 or 57,900 rubles. But, most likely, the final prices will be many times higher than the declared ones – the whole point is the shortage of chips with huge demand. Therefore, it will probably be possible to update the video card without wild overpayments only in 2022.
