Obviously, specs are sketchy at this point, but the contention is that this card will have 8GB of GDDR6 video RAM, with a TDP of 150W, and will be priced at $250 (around £195, AU$345). It will apparently perform around 10 to 15% faster than an RX Vega 64. According to AdoredTV, the RX 3080 should be competitive in terms of performance with the RTX 2070.

This makes that price is a bit of an eye-opener – we’ll talk more about that in a moment. Then there’s the RX 3070, based on the Navi 12 GPU, and also running with 8GB of GDDR6, with a slightly lower TDP of… [Read full story]
