Computex kicked off its 2021 edition yesterday on June 1. While the all-virtual event is expected to go on for the full month of June, big tech names like AMD, Intel and Nvidia had their keynotes right at the beginning of the event.
We have brought together announcements from all three brands including Nvidia’s 3080 Ti to AMD’s new APUs and Intel’s new Beast Canyon NUC Extreme kit. Let’s begin with Nvidia.
Nvidia’s biggest update at the event was the announcement of its new graphic cards, the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. As Nvidia’s history of naming its graphic cards suggests, the new cards are slightly more powerful versions of the RTX 3080 and 3070. The 3080 Ti is basically an RTX 3090 with half the video memory and almost as many CUDA Tensor and RT cores. The RTX 3070 Ti comes with faster GDDR6X video memory.
The 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti will launch on June 10 for $599 and June 3 for $1,199 respectively. Several new games will now be supporting RTX features. Two major titles include Rainbow Six: Siege and Red Dead Redemption 2, both of which will also be able to get better performance with Nvidia’s DLSS tech.
The company also showed off Dying Light 1983 and Doom Eternal, which will also be receiving support for ray tracing and DLSS. RTX will also be soon coming to VR titles like No Man’s Sky, Wrench, and Into the Radius.
Nvidia also announced the DGX Superpod subscription platform where businesses can harness the power of Nvidia’s DGX 2 supercomputer at $90,000 per month. While that figure sounds hefty, it can be a good deal for businesses, considering the DGX 2 costs $399,000.
