NVIDIA Ampere GPU general header 2

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 to officially launch on October 15th, RTX 3080 reviews go live on September 16th

Nvidia has just made two major announcements regarding its Ampere GPU lineup. First off, the embargo date for the RTX 3080 reviews has been changed. Earlier we were expecting reviews of the RTX 3080 Founders Edition models this coming Monday, and Custom AIB GPU reviews were scheduled for September 17th.

But today Nvidia announced that reviews for the Founders Edition RTX 3080 GPU will in fact come just one day before the official launch and retail availability, which is September 16th.

Secondly, NVIDIA has also confirmed that the GeForce RTX 3070 GPU will be available on October 15th, which I presume would be the launch date, so we can expect some reviews before this official embargo.

Hello, my name is NICK Richardson. I'm an avid PC and tech fan since the good old days of RIVA TNT2, and 3DFX interactive "Voodoo" gaming cards. I love playing mostly First-person shooters, and I'm a die-hard fan of this FPS genre, since the good 'old Doom and Wolfenstein days. MUSIC has always been my passion/roots, but I started gaming "casually" when I was young on Nvidia's GeForce3 series of cards. I'm by no means an avid or a hardcore gamer though, but I just love stuff related to the PC, Games, and technology in general. I've been involved with many indie Metal bands worldwide, and have helped them promote their albums in record labels. I'm a very broad-minded down to earth guy. MUSIC is my inner expression, and soul. Contact: Email
