Nvidia on Tuesday introduced a new version of its GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card with 12GB of memory, a 2GB increase over the 10GB version of the RTX 3080 which came out in 2020.

The updated 12GB RTX 3080 will be available starting today from Nvidia partners, although specific prices may vary by board manufacturer. Although hard to find in stock, the 10GB RTX 3080 starts around $ 700.

Designed for gaming, artificial intelligence work, and other graphics-intensive activities, Nvidia’s RTX computer cards are in high demand and frequently exhausted in continuous medium supply chain constraints.

During a virtual presentation at the CES 2022 technology fair last week, Nvidia introduced new products for Basic and ultra-high-performance computing. The new GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, which will be released later this month, aims to help PCs run the latest games and costs $ 249. Nvidia also announced the high-powered GeForce RTX 3090 Ti GPU, which it said beats the previous $ 1,499 RTX 3090.
