NVIDIA Series 30 consists (at the time of writing) of 3 different graphics cards: RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. Their release was so well received that the company wrote a post on the official website where apologizes to those who failed to register a pre-order of the new components, namely the RTX 3080 version, the first to be launched – “the demand for the GeForce RTX 3080 was truly unprecedented. We and our partners have underestimated it. ”
It’s a problem we’ve seen since the beginning of the pandemic, when products that you would normally think only gamers were interested in flew off the shelves – referring here mainly to game consoles. Is it because gaming has grown enormously as a market in recent years, becoming a passion or a hobby for more and more people?
But what do you do if you’re not a gamer? How do you know where this enthusiasm for NVIDIA Series 30 comes from?
We will not explain here all the technologies that you can find on NVIDIA graphics cards, such as RTX or DLSS, because we have already done it in other previous materials. Instead, we will try to understand if such a graphics card can be useful to a non-gamer, a person who is not at all interested in the latest Assassin’s Creed or Cyberpunk 2077.
So, the first thing you will definitely look at will be the price: the good news is that it is identical to the one that had the 20 series at launch, so we have not seen a significant increase in this regard. If you don’t mind the 3090, which is “the best of the best” anyway, the price you should pay for such a graphics card is a few hundred dollars.
But why would you pay so much? What do these graphics cards help you with and for whom? Well, they are a great choice for professionals: NVIDIA also has the Quadro series, dedicated to those who want the most powerful graphics cards to equip workstations, but those are available at high to very high prices for most simple users. Therefore, using a 30 Series board can be a good and more economical choice, given all the features it offers.
In addition to the gaming features mentioned above, NVIDIA has brought to the 30 Series an extraordinarily advanced artificial intelligence capable of helping in creative applications. Basically, those who deal with making 3D scenes, editing videos (even in 8K) or streaming content will benefit from considerable power.
Also included in this chapter is the NVIDIA Broadcast function, which, although at first glance seems oriented to streamers and dedicated to them, can be extremely useful for those who waste a lot of hours in virtual meetings on Zoom, Teams or other similar platforms. Basically, Broadcast turns the space behind you into a studio, offering a multitude of virtual backgrounds, the automatic framing function, so that you are always in the center of the image, no matter how much you move, but also the excellent possibility to cancel background noise. Basically, get rid of the barking of the dog next to you or the famous drill of the neighbor above / below.
Last but not least, it stands out with the launch of the new 30 series from NVIDIA and RTX I / O, which allows faster processing of games in terms of graphics and storage that fits the same paradigm: speed. Basically, the high quality textures in the games will be rendered much faster, so even when you run through an open world game like Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3, you won’t notice any graphics issues.
For fans, it is also worth mentioning Omniverse Machinima, an application that allows you to create new stories with your favorite games, with sound and facial animation included, as well as Reflex, a system that optimizes and reduces latency in multiplayer games, so response time is much better.
For those who want to spend as little as possible on the graphics card, there is also the GeForce GTX 3070 version, which, this week, will appear in the stocks of large stores in Romania. GTX 3070 is a very powerful board, built on Ampere architecture, like the whole 30 series, with RT cores that allow a transfer twice as fast and a performance almost one third better than the 2070 model. For gamers, there is no shortage classic technologies, such as Ray Tracing or DLSS, so if you want to play after work, you can do it at the best settings and with excellent quality.
NVIDIA’s 30 Series has made graphics cards much easier to recommend even to those who are not big fans of gaming. To have such power in the PC seems to entice you to do more, to use it to its full capacity, and to take the butter out of it daily.
