With its GeForce RTX 30, Nvidia draws its 2nd generation of graphics cards focused on raytracing video games. The top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 3080 aims for 4K gaming and relies on its elaborate cooling system.
The GeForce RTX 3080 is an ideal graphics card for gaming in 4K. With it, Nvidia gives the possibility of running games in raytracing without a hitch in this definition yet so resource-intensive. And if the card has a heatsink as original as it is effective, you still have to keep in mind that it requires at least a well-ventilated case, otherwise the noise pollution tends to take off.
- 4K performance.
- DLSS now perfect.
- Decent raytracing performance.
- Efficient cooling system.
- HDMI 2.1 video output.
- Nvidia software ecosystem.
- Excellent finish.
- Ventilation at rest.
- Cooling system that undermines CPU air heatsinks.
- Power connector in the middle of the card.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 delivers compelling performance for users of WQHD monitors and allows you to fully enjoy games without compromising on detail. This performance is all the more remarkable as the overall consumption of the card is limited to say the least. It is obviously well helped in its task by Nvidia’s scaling technology, DLSS 3, which ensures a bright future for it if all games adopt it.
