News bon plan Nvidia graphics cards: the RTX 3080 is finally at a reasonable price
Yes, it is real! You may pinch your arm, but the price you will see below is the price you will have to pay to finally be able to afford an RTX 3080 from Nvidia, and it is not just any price. For once, we are dealing with top of the range!
Nvidia’s RTX 3080 is at an unbeatable price on Rue du Commerce
We spotted this RTX 3080 from MSI’s Z Trio range on Rue du Commerce at a price we wish we’d seen more often lately. If AMD graphics cards have almost returned to normal prices, it’s a little more complicated on the side of Nvidia.
But here we were, we had the good surprise to come across this RTX 3080 at 879€ at Rue du Commerce. If you absolutely want to make the most of Ray-Tracing (where AMD is clearly lagging behind), this is an unmissable offer.
Ray-Tracing opens its doors to you thanks to the Nvidia RTX 3080
As promised, we have hit the high end here, a safe bet for connoisseurs. This is indeed the MSI Z Trio range, on an RTX 3080 triple fan model (three fans). The graphics card has 10 GB of dedicated GDDR6 video memory. In general, recent games only require 6 GB of dedicated video memory, as much to tell you that you will not miss anything with this reference.
This custom RTX 3080 is therefore overclocked, and it has a clock frequency of 1830 MHz and has 8704 CUDA cores. These are cores that are used for calculation on specific applications and software.
The RTX 3080 lets you step into the fabulous world of Ray-Tracing, a technology made in Nvidia which greatly improves the lighting effects on all compatible games, ie a lot on recent games. It’s hard to do without once you’ve tasted it!
Similarly, you can also experience DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling). This is a technology that harnesses the power of Artificial Intelligence to run games at 4K resolution with perfectly optimized performance.
To give you a little more concrete examples of what you can run with this RTX 3080, know that it is quite capable of running fairly demanding games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla in 4K up to 70 fps, even in ultra.
To take advantage of the qualities of this little gem of technology, equip yourself with at least an 850W power supply.
