NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Facts and Game Deals
We have reviewed the new RTX 30 Series and this is what we have to say about this next-gen graphic card.
THE RAY TRACING TECHNIQUE
Ray tracing is when the light found in games acts as the light in real life. The technique calculates the light trajectory and how it would reflect that light from any object where shadows and refractions would occur giving the game a more realistic experience.
GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs had been created with the ultimate performance in mind for developers, creators and gamers.
The series is powered bu NVIDIA’s powerful 2nd gen RTX architecture called Ampere. This comes with the new RT and Tensor computing units and multiprocessors that are streaming to get that realistic ray tracing graphics and AI features.

NVIDIA STUDIO STACK is a collection of software that can give digital content creators performance that is unparalleled as well as reliability when using any creative apps. The Studio Stack includes the NVIDIA SDKs and APIs that are used by app developers and the NVIDIA Studio Drivers are used by creators.
NVIDIA GPUs had also been designed for creators and not just gamers. Creators will be able to model and render 3D scenes in real-time as well as develop animations using the GPU-accelerated apps like the 3ds Max, Maya and Blender effortlessly.
Lag-free interactions are also featured in ray tracing plus it has faster frame rendering. Overall, those using the NVIDIA GPUs are sure to get huge boosts in performance when using creative apps.
With the release of the 30 Series GPUs also came the NVIDIA Reflex which has the cutting edge technology that can monitor and minimize latency in the system.
NVIDIA Reflex lets users get complete performance that is fine-tuned. This enables better response times between your display and the PC. Gamers would have an advantage when it comes to fast-paced competitive gameplay.
The NVIDIA Reflex SDK can integrate Reflex Low Latency Mode with the game engine so that just-in-time rendering is reduced to the load on the GPUs and CPUs to make sure there are latency reductions on games like Valorant, Apex Legends and Fortnite.
The NVIDIA Reflex is compatible with NVIDIA GPUs starting from the GeForce GTX 900 and later. NVIDIA also recommends that the 30 Series GPUs like the GeForce RTX 3080 and the G-SYNC displays should be used at its optimal performance.
RTX Broadcast App
The broadcast app is for streamers as well as content creators. This will give them the ability to have a studio in the comfort of their own home.
There are three important AI-powered features that any content creator would love.
Noise Removal: The app can remove background noises that your mic was able to pick up. This is also applicable to incoming audio.
Virtual Background: Changing the background isn’t something new since some programs as well as webcams have something similar. But, for streamers, they can effortlessly remove the background during a webcam feed using the app.
Auto Frame: The app has a powerful AI that can track your head movements keeping you in frame all the time. This will reduce the need to keep on adjusting your camera every time you change your position.
Right now the Virtual Background and Auto Frame features are in its beta stage, which means that those already have this can give their feedback. Also, the Noise Removal is available across the RTX GPUs but NVIDIA said it still depends on which card you have.
The new RTX Broadcast Engine is an important upgrade allowing the NVIDIA developers to create new powerful tools for streamers which can be seen in the NVIDIA RTX GPUs.

HDR GAMING IN 8K
GeForce RTX 30 is a gaming monster and is built specifically for it. The flagship in the series, GeForce RTX 3090 offers incredible performance as well as support for games that can be played in 8K from PC to display.
This has been made possible via the GeForce RTX GPUs using the NVIDIA AI rendering technology called Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).
Frame rates and image sharpening is boosted by the DLSS but will still have enough power to maximize raytracing and output resolution. There are some cases where the DLSS can increase the game’s framerates up to 100% having very sharp images that can match or even exceed the native resolution.

RECORD AND SHARE 8k HDR VIDEOS
Those with NVIDIA GPUs will know that the easiest way to capture as well as record videos is via the GPUs ShadowPlay.
The GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs and the GeForce Experience will give you the chance to record 8K HDR gameplay which is the first in the whole world.
What’s great is that there is no dedicated capture card needed which means with just a press of a hotkey, you can use the NVIDIA ShadowPlay and record 8K HDR videos.
RTX BROADCAST ENGINE
Leading the industry in AI-powered content creation is still the RTX Broadcast Engine. This is found integrated into leading streaming platforms like OBS, Xsplit, Twitch Studio and Elgato.
The NVIDIA GPUs offer a real-time hardware-based decoder, called NVDEC that is responsible for all the video decoding as well as using the graphics engine and CPU to perform the other needed actions.
A boost in FPS and performance gains to your favorite games is possible with the NVDEC. This is also possible while having real-time face tracking, background removal, and video effects so that your stream would stand out.
NVIDIA GPUs are the most popular choice for gamers. They are also rated as the most popular when it comes to video streaming on YouTube and Twitch.
The RTX Broadcast Engine is the new way for streamers to make their live streams more immersive. It comes with new powerful AI-powered features that can accomplish more as well as give more without the need for other physical props and additional cameras.

Know what is the best of the 30 Series you would need. We have for you a rundown of what each entails, go and check it out:
- RTX 3070 – This is a great choice for the casual gamer. It comes with performance increases as compared to the previous generations of NVIDIA GPUs plus it comes with reliability, high frame rates, as well as up to 8K resolution.
- RTX 3080 – This is perfect for gamers that are streamers. This will maximize the stream performance with the cutting-edge AI techniques, high-quality video recording and streaming without sacrificing any of the graphical performances.
- RTX 3090 – This is the absolute beast in the series, this is for those who use creativity tools for 3D models and scenes giving the best real-time performance.
Of course, as we all know, the more expensive the GPU the more powerful it is.
But you must also consider your PC system as a whole, not just the budget and the best graphics card out there.
To get the maximum performance, the complete system of your computer must be up to date with its CPU, cables, power supply cable that can support the 30 series cards.
RTX 3080 Vs. RTX 2080 Super
Comparing the 30 series over the 20 series, the 30 has a greater advantage when it comes to performance, speed, and price.
According to the early benchmarks available, the 3080 has a better score across the board compared to the 2080 Super. The 3080 is priced at $700 and has a better 3D speed, overclocked score, and is $100 cheaper than the 2080 Super.
Comparing the launch prices of the 20 and 30 series, the 30 looks so much better with its performance as well as value for money.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Super launched in 2018 and was priced at about $600 and up. The launch price of the 3080 is the same. But the significant gain in performance is about 50% more than the 2080 Super.
