NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 vs 3080 vs 3070: What are the differences in specs, features and price?

We've finally seen the first iterations of the RTX 30 range from Nvidia, and wow are they impressive.

Each of these cards boasts a power unlike anything we've seen to date, and Nvidia is claiming that this is the largest generational leap yet.

That's all very impressive, but we're all facing a choice now, and that means we all need information.

Luckily for you, we've got all of the information here, and you can read on to find it all out.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 specs, release date, and price

The most powerful of the bunch, the 3090 is a monster. Here are the specs:

  • GPU: 7nm GA102-300
  • Board: PG132 SKU 30
  • CUDA Cores: 5248
  • Boost Clock: 1695 MHz
  • Memory: 24GB GDDR6X
  • Memory Bus: 384-bit
  • Bandwidth: 936 GB/s
  • TGP: 350W

That, good people, is an awful lot of power. You'll be able to pick the 3090 up when it releases on September 24th.

Despite being such a powerhouse, the cost is a little lower than expected at £1,399. It's still pricey, but the power is off the scales.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 specs, release date, and price

Next up we have the middle sibling, but you'd do well to pay attention to the 3080 too. Here are the specs:

  • GPU: 7nm GA102-200
  • Board: PG132 SKU 10
  • CUDA Cores: 4352
  • Boost Clock: 1710 MHz
  • Memory: 10GB GDDR6X
  • Memory Bus: 320-bit
  • Bandwidth: 760 GB/s
  • TGP: 320W

That's still a lot of juice, but the price might be the best part. For £649 you can pick one of these up when it releases September 17th.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 specs, release date, and price

Finally, we have the current lowest specs version of the 30 series. Despite that, what we know so far about the 3070 is still very impressive:

  • GPU: ??nm GA104-300
  • Board: PG142 SKU 10
  • CUDA Cores: TBA
  • Boost Clock: TBA
  • Memory: 8GB GDDR6
  • Memory Bus: 256-bit
  • Bandwidth: 512 GB/s
