Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3000 series is very impressive. If the GeForce RTX 2000 series has its own Ray tracing Introducing hardware and smart graphics rendering techniques into PC games, the RTX 3000 series takes it even further.
This is a lot of PC fans PC becomes the best game console againAnd then dunk PS5 And Xbox series X.. In terms of real raw performance. Xbox Series X 12 teraflops does not challenge 36 shader teraflops. GeForce RTX 3090.. But in other words, next-generation consoles are far from redundant. Let me explain why.
$699 GeForce RTX 3080 Has dramatically improved 4K, 60 frames per second games and ray tracing performance over the $999 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. And $499 GeForce RTX 3070 We also promise to discontinue the RTX 2080 Ti. Which means it will be one of the best valued graphics cards of 2020.
PC game enthusiasts may find it worth the RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 over spending $500 on a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Old and new game PC
As a person with a gaming PC, I essentially agree with it. But there are actually some nuances here. And even if you love PC games, there’s a compelling argument that you shouldn’t ignore next-generation consoles.
Let’s start with the basics. If you are good at assembling IKEA furniture and making LEGO, upgrading your PC is practically easy. However, many PC technologies have evolved over the last few years. You can plug a GeForce RTX 3080 or RTX 3070 into your PC, but if you don’t combine the latest and most efficient Intel or AMD processors with fast RAM and SSD, you’ll get the best performance from your shiny new graphics card. Can be suppressed.
My gaming console has a Ryzen 7 1800X, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and a Radeon RX 590, all on a motherboard a few years back, and a very formidable name. It’s a robust gaming console that can run most games at the maximum 1080p setting. But with the RTX 3070, the GPU is throttled by the first-generation Ryzen CPU, despite having an 8-core processor.
Therefore, to get the most out of all the technology Nvidia has put into the RTX 3000 series, you need a new processor, new motherboard, and perhaps new RAM. And I can upgrade the power supply while I’m there.
This all comes at a cost, turning a $499 GPU into a $800 PC upgrade. Suddenly, the $500 PS5 with ray tracing support and 4K with 60fps performance looks like a bargain.
Let’s say you have a PC with OK, the latest processor, RAM, SSD and motherboard. The new GeForce RTX 3080 may seem like a messy upgrade compared to the RTX 2080 and GTX 1080. A display that utilizes the power of the RTX 3000 series.
Is the monitor resolution 1440p or 4K? Do you support high refresh rates such as 144Hz? Otherwise, all that new Nvidia power could be wasted.
I have a 1080p 60Hz display connected to my gaming PC. This is a fully serviceable screen, but even if my PC has a GPU bottleneck, the GeForce RTX 3070 is overkill for it. Yes, ray-tracing is available, but by just purchasing an Xbox Series X (which also promises ray-tracing support) and plugging it into your monitor, you just have to justify getting a new graphics card Not enough.
Before PC enthusiasts comment and surprise me, yes, I know that some people have the right settings for their PCs who are suffering from GeForce RTX 3000 series cards. I’m sure some people are seeing a very expensive gaming PC built around the $1,499 GeForce RTX 3090. Don’t forget to get an 8K monitor… if you can find one.
But one thing I would like to emphasize is that many games are multi-platform titles and were developed because they have little in common. For the next generation game console, it means the PS5 with 10.28 teraflops of GPU power.
Therefore, it may take some time to get a PC game that utilizes the GeForce RTX 3070 graphic grant. It will take years for the RTX 3090 to reach its limits. Comparing games running at 4K on PS5 with games running the same resolution on PC gives better frame rates and sharper textures, but does it significantly improve visual fidelity? I don’t know.
After all, thanks to various software and hardware optimizations, a powerful gaming PC to match the performance of the game console, even though the PC’s specifications make the console hardware embarrassing. Is often required.
I just want to play
Before we go any further, I don’t want to cheapen what Nvidia has done with the GeForce RTX 3000 series. It did a great job. There are three powerful GPUs to cater to those who need a powerful or high-end gaming PC, and those who need a machine to make the details of the game over the next few years.
But NVIDIA doesn’t give us a compelling reason not to buy the next generation of game consoles. I’ve been playing games on PC for years and new consoles, especially PS5 batches, are very attractive Monopoly game..
For next-generation consoles, we are looking at custom SSDs as well as 4K TVs, as well as plug-in playable game boxes that combine a vast array of other technologies. 3D audio, DualSense controller.. I like tinkering with my pc, but there’s a lot to say about sitting on my sofa and playing Halo: Master Chief Collection To Xbox One X, Even though my PC offers a better frame rate and mouse-based aiming accuracy.
Convenience is important in many ways, especially for those who are short on time. So, faced with Nvidia’s new GeForce graphics card, you can’t dismiss the PS5 and Xbox Series X despite the PC fan cry.
