Watch the NVIDIA GeForce Special Event livestream here

Come and see all that NVIDIA has to show in the latest livestream.

90

The next NVIDIA livestream is set to take place today. With fans clamouring for news on the RTX 3080, and the desire to see what else NVIDIA has been up to, today’s livestream is bound to be a good one. You can watch the excitement of the NVIDIA RTX 3080 livestream right here on Shacknews.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 livestream

The NVIDIA RTX 3080 livestream is set to begin on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET. Would-be viewers can check out the stream below or navigate to the NVIDIA site to watch it over there.

NVIDIA announced in a press release on August 11, 2020, that the special livestream event would be taking place in September. The livestream, as always, will feature an address by founder and CEO Jensen Huang.

While no one knows what this livestream will be about, there, there are plenty of rumors running amuck on the internet. The main rumor is that the RTX 3080 will be announced. This would certainly be a huge reveal, as it would usher in a new age of graphical computing. Though, it does feel as if the RTX 2080 series were only just hurting our wallets.

Though not much is known, what NVIDIA is willing to share about the livestream is that it will celebrate the biggest breakthroughs in PC gaming. This is emblazoned across NVIDIA’s homepage, where a massive countdown timer has been running. The celebration will look to cover the previous 21 years of gaming advancements, from 1999 to now. We will also be streaming our live reactions on the Shacknews Twitch channel.

Be sure to keep it locked to Shacknews as we cover the latest topics and announcements from NVIDIA’s September 1st livestream. You can peruse our NVIDIA page to see everything that’s revealed today, and well into the future.

        Will the 3090 be scarce. I want to do a prebuilt rig but wondering if I order one now and swap card. I can’t tell though what it’ll fit into versus a 2080

        • reply
          September 1, 2020 6:14 AM

          The 3090 will be scarce, and probably along the lines of the 3000 series version of a Titan.

              September 1, 2020 6:28 AM

              The 3090 is going to be a card that's aimed at people who will spend any money to have the absolute fastest, most powerful card possible, or who need insane desktop GPU power for purposes unrelated to gaming. It will be scarce because producing them in quantity will be hard.

          Sometimes system builders have the new stuff in sooner. Either because they get priority access or there is less demand I don't know but you may be able to get the new stuff with them sooner than you think.

      I added the rumors to that so we can reference it. Crazy how small that thing is. The rumor of "very compact" is true, it seems.

      Also big question seems to be whether it's 7nmm TSMC or 8nm Samsung.

      This guy says it's both - 7nm for the 3090/3080, Samsung for the lower end cards due to yields and Nvidia asking TSMC to lower their price and TSMC told them to fuck off.

          September 1, 2020 9:09 AM

          Do you have a 4k monitor? If not, you don't need to be running highest texture settings in any game really, which means it shouldn't be hard to keep VRAM usage under 10GB

            if i'm spending $1k+ CAD for a new videocard, i don't want to turn things down a bit. i'm at 1440p ultrawide. FS2020 has already maxed out 8gb on my 1070.

            • reply
              September 1, 2020 12:15 PM

              The point is, you can't see the detail max textures on a 1440p monitor. Max textures are usually for 4k displays.

        • reply
          September 1, 2020 9:26 AM

          true, but the 7nm leaks may have been because NVIDIA was trying to get the cards produced on Samsung 7nm, which is supposedly at high enough yields (or close to it) to manufacture chips as complex as these GPUs. And people saw 7nm and just assumed TSMC.

            September 1, 2020 9:50 AM

            Why is that crazy? The 1070 was as fast as the 980Ti. The 2070 should have been as fast as the 1080Ti if trends held. This is the pricing normalizing again albeit $100 more than the 1070 cost on release.

              I think everyone was expecting pricing to go the opposite direction. Normalizing doesn't seem like a thing that's happening nowadays with price/performance.

                I do wonder why the pricing is back to sane levels. Can't help but feel like AMD has something competitive at the high end. By that I mean that big navi is probably pretty close to a 3080. I can't see them having anything to touch a 3090 though/

                  Maybe the chips are smaller due to the node, less silicon makes it cheaper? Not sure how big these are compared to 20xx

                    That is probably part of it although it didn't stop AMD from pricing the 5700XT at $400 with a tiny die (251mm). Plus the new is probably a fait bit more expensive too.
                    Ok AMD. Your turn. Please don't disappoint.

      Also yay for pricing rumors being bogus about another increase on the xx80. I do wonder if that was all intentional though so it would feel better at the actual price. Kinda sad there was no 'go to nv.com now and order for delivery next week!' final slide.

      That 3090 is massive, holy shit.

      Interesting that he basically said the 3090 is their Titan renamed and referred to their 3080 as their flagship consumer card. I think there is a 3080Ti coming and (conjecture mode) it could come sooner than expected depending on what AMD's big Navi is. $1099-$1199 for a 20-24 gig 3080Ti on TMSC's 7nm process (vs the 8nm that these things are on) slides into the stack reaaaaaally smoothly. There is zero chance that nvidia leaves that gap unfilled.

        I was thinking the same thing when I read someone calling the 3090 the new 'Ti' of this gen. The performance gap between the 90 and 80 is just begging to be filled.

          Yeah that's true, so maybe a 3080 is really all I need. Honestly all I play anymore on PC is Modern Warfare and that already gets me very close to 120fps at 1440p on my 1080 Ti. No reason to believe near future CoD games would perform any worse.

            I think the 3090 is aimed at a target so high that it's not reasonable for the average gamer. I think the 3080 is going to be the sweetest spot this go around. I was all down for a 3090 until I witnessed it's size and what I will assume will be the price tag.

      I was behind on seeing this until now - that brief I/O section is super interesting. That could be the PC equivalent of what PS5 has, at least hardware wise. If they actually build that out with MS providing the software interface (they mentioned MS dealing with the storage aspect) that would be fantastic.

      Seems safe to assume this I/O thing would exist for AMD as well given the XBX X is sure to want it as well. So hopefully hardware agnostic spec that any GPU can adhere to?

      How on earth is AMD going to compete with the 3070 or the 3080? Even in the mid low end, Nvidia will respond with a 3060 for cheap.

      • reply
        September 1, 2020 10:51 AM

        They won't be able to compete at all.. with Nvidia doubling up the number of Cuda cores that likely puts that card at something like 4096 Cuda Cores which is nuts. It would be faster than the 2080.

        Unless Big Navi pulls a similar thing like this but I got the impression the Big Navi architecture uses the same design as what's in the Xbox Series X which has the same 64 shaders per Compute Unit. Nvidia jumped up to 128 shaders (Cuda Cores) per Compute Unit on Ampere for the gaming GPUs which wasn't expected. Considering that big Ampere for HPC still had 64 FP32 units on it per Compute Unit.

        Lots. 3x the CUDA cores, and faster CUDA cores. Doubling or more would not surprise me.

        The 3080 is looks, conservatively, like a 60% performance boost over a 2080 in real-world benchmarks based on the Digital Foundry testing. You can extrapolate from there as you like.

        not even in the same league.. DLSS uses deep-learning algorithms to fill in missing pixels even to the point where it adds detail that isn't even present in the Native Resolution image. AI Upscaling is just a fancy resizing filter that cleans up aliasing and sharpens the image.
