Gamers rejoice as Nvidia RTX 3070 stocks will be more than RTX 3080…Will it be enough?
If you remember, just a few days ago of writing this article, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang admitted that there is a shortage of supply for both RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.
The shortage will continue onward till December 2020. This is happening due to the market demand for price to performance ratio of RTX 3000 series.
While not a giant leap as advertised by Nvidia, RTX 3000 series has made an impact on everyone, from gamers to tech enthusiasts.
When RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 were made available, they got quickly snagged away even at a price point of $699 and $1,499, respectively.
But this time, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang has reassured us that RTX 3070 will not face such issues. They have waited all this while, so that the demand for the mainstream-high end graphics card will be met.
Even with a promise like that, the demand for RTX 3070 is going to be huge. Let’s see if Nvidia can keep up with the demand, because if it doesn’t then AMD will get their chance to sweep in and take the sales for themselves.
So, tell me, are you going to buy RTX 3070 as soon as it comes out?
RTX 3080 performance benchmarks are great in comparison of last generation of graphics card, RTX 2080 Ti & Titan.
The big takeaway here is the 4K gaming now being accessible at 100+ FPS. If you own RTX 2080 or even 2070, you don’t need to join the hype and buy RTX 3000 series for the time being.
But if you have RTX 1000 series and 4K gaming feels a little out of your reach, then upgrading directly to RTX 3000 series will make a lot of sense.
The shortage of RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 is also happening because Nvidia is currently focusing on RTX 3070.
As you know, AMD is going to release Big Navi today and while, Big Navi is especially designed to take on RTX 3080, other graphics cards from AMD will focus on RTX 3060 and RTX 3070.
On the price point of view, RTX 3070 is going to be a $499 graphics card. So, if AMD wants to beat it, it needs to match the price and performance.
Ideally, an AMD card matching the performance of RTX 3070, will have a price point of $450. But let’s see what happens.
It was being proposed by marketing gurus that Nvidia and AMD are both speeding up the manufacturing process because of the upcoming gaming consoles, Xbox Series X and PS 5.
With games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla coming in September 2020, the demand for PC parts is going to soar as well.
So, if there’s a new graphics card in the market that can leverage those ray tracing capabilities then gamers would want to get that card.
Let’s see how the landscape of PC 4K gaming looks once both RTX 3000 series and AMD Big Navi are available to every gamer.
One thing is for certain, even Counter Strike: Global Offensive is going to have gameplay uploaded in 4K textures now.
