GeForce RTX 3080Ti
The big brother of RTX 3070Ti, the GeForce RTX 3080Ti is also announced as rumored before. Featuring the 2nd Generation Ray Tracing cores and DLSS, this card is supposed to be three times faster than a GTX 1080Ti and 1.5times faster than the last generation GeForce RTX 2080Ti. This card features a whopping 10240 CUDA cores running a boost clock of 1.67Ghz. It will come shipped with 12GB GDDR6X Memory as opposed to the speculated 10GB GDDR6X Memory. It will have a TDP of 350W while running on a memory bandwidth of 384-bit. The Founders Edition RTX 3080Ti will hit the shelves on 10th of June with a minimum price tag of $1199.
Nvidia Keynote 2021 – Nvidia Reflex Technology
Both of these GPUs will support the Nvidia Reflex technology. Nvidia Reflex reduces the input lag of the system by 20ms, thus making games run more smoothly and become more responsive in both competitive and multiplayer environments. Games like Apex Legends, Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite, Rainbow Six Seige and other 15 titles support the Nvidia Reflex Technology.
Nvidia also announced some new games with the Nvidia Reflex Technology. Apart from these 12 out of 15 of the most played games will feature Nvidia Reflex.
Gaijin’s War Thunder
Naraka Blade Point

We have a few screenshots from Escape from Tarkov as well.
Nvidia showed us how the Reflex technology works in Escape from Tarkov.
Nvidia partners up with more brands to bring Reflex technology in both monitors and mice.
Nvidia Keynote 2021 – RTX 3080 Laptop Announcements
Nvidia also partnered up with every laptop brands like Dell,ASUS, MSI, Lenovo, Gigabyte, HP, ACER, Tongfang and Razer to bring more than 140 models with RTX Graphics in the mainstream market with a starting price of around $799.
They also announced a brand new laptop called the Alienware x15 which will feature the RTX 3080 Max-Q Graphics. It will also possess the latest features like the Dynamic Boost 2.0, Advanced Optimus and Whisper mode. Sporting an Nvidia’s 1440p G-SYNC Display. All these crammed up to into a slim chassis as thin as 15.9mm.
These 3rd Generation MaxQ GPU features twice the power of last generation Pascal but the DLSS makes all the difference. When turning on DLSS, the performance jumps by a huge margin. Nvidia’s DLSS uses the AI powered Tensor cores to complete the partly rendered frame that was previously rendered by the GPU thus improving performance and FPS while keeping the same power delivery.
Nvidia also launched new laptops with RTX Creator Studio to address the needs of 3D Content creators globally. These laptops are mainly targeted towards 3D Designers, 3D animators, Video Editors, Photographers. These RTX Studio Laptops recieves special Studio Driver Updates from Nvidia. These laptops are designed and optimized for Creator workflows. Nvidia also announced two new Creator Laptops like the HP Envy and Acer Concept D. The Acer Concept D will have a variant which will feature the RTX A5000 Studio Graphics.
So these were the key highlights of the Nvidia Keynote at Computex 2021.
That’s all for today!
Until next time..
