NVIDIA's new 30XX RTX series is here (if you can find one to purchase) and they seem to be a very impressive leap in the next step of PC gaming. With any new graphic card improvement it's important to be skeptical of how much more powerful it is over the previous generation and it looks like NVIDIA has stepped up to deliver something quite impressive. Should most people upgrade to the 30XX series? Maybe but it's hard enough finding one and affording it is another story too.

Regardless of availability and price these graphics cards are here and soon enough will drop in price and eventually the tech will be incorporated into lesser powered systems as power requirements lessen as time marches on.

"The Ge-force RTX 3090 is here - and it's the most powerful GPU money can buy... and you're going to need a lot of money to buy it. But just how much faster than RTX 3080 is it? And who actually needs one? "

I saw a could of videos about the 3080 on the YouTube channel called JayzTwoCents. One video had benchmarks (https://youtu.be/32GE1bfxRVo) the other was when he wasn't allowed to show the GPU running (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxJDdRgs7Lw). IIRC it's about $800-$900 while the 3090 is more ($1k+?). What I did see, that I can definitely remember is just how much more performance this series has over the 20XX series. It's amazing! I even saw something about this series (or maybe just the 3090, I'm not sure) doing 8K. Wow! I think Jay also mentioned that you might want to upgrade your CPU as well as to not bottleneck the GPU. I'd love to have one of these and a new monitor!

I love that this GPU is more than an entire next gen XBox Series X. 🤣
