Nvidia lifted the lid on the 3090, 3080 and 3070 GPUs this morning, and a lot of the talk have been around the raw power of the RTX 3090, which is quite frankly beyond what we would have thought would be possible 12-24 months ago.
The RTX 3090 will come in at $2,500 AUD, and it’s clearly for a more niche type of user, but it’s hard not to be impressed by a video showcasing the GPU handing 8K graphics at 60 frames-per-second for games such as Control, Wolfenstein: Youngblood & Death Stranding.
DLSS was being used, with the game being upscaled from 1440p, but in the below video, Kinda Funny Games’ Tim Gettys and Andy Cortez spoke about how there was no difference visually from them seeing the games running in 8K with DLSS turned off. Obviously, they were only getting 15-20 FPS without DLSS.
Naturally, as AusGamers points out, the $2,500 AUD for the RTX 3090 is nothing compared to the $30,000 plus that you’ll need to spend on getting the 77″ 8K OLED used in this video, so the 8K dream is probably still at least a handful of years away. It’s still impressive tech, given we know that the PS5/Xbox Series X are still going to struggle to hit 4k/60FPS in most instances.
