After a few months of waiting, you can upgrade your PC. Today, one of the most powerful graphics cards today, a model GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 12 GB of memory, is sold at Rue du Commerce.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been available since mid-January with more memory and less computing power. This is the latest high-end graphics card from Nvidia. Here, we take advantage of a promotion of a popular model, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio (12 GB). The product is sold and shipped on the Rue du Commerce.
Highlights of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio (12GB)
The MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming X Trio 12 GB model is available now for 1099.90 euros. Yesterday, it still sold for 1,249.90 euros. With it, you are entitled to 4 free games on the Nvidia site.

Very good performance
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB is the fifth graphics card based on the high-end “Gamer Ampere” GA102 GPU. Its big strength is the presence of 12 GB GDDR6X memory with 384-bit bus. This ability is important, making the card more scalable.
It’s based on the architecture of the excellent GeForce RTX 3080 Ti released in June 2021. We can summarize it in a few words: it’s a slightly restrained RTX 3090 that doesn’t say its name. It now allows you to run anything at 4K/60 FPS without batting an eyelid. here are a few benchmarks.
In 3D Mark:

on control :
There are 10,240 classic calculation units (Cuda Cores), as well as 320 units for AI calculation (Tensor Cores) and 80 units dedicated to ray tracing (RT Cores), that is, the difference in the GeForce RTX 3090 is not significant. This means you will be able to play in the best conditions in all definitions, including 4K. You will never find a graphics card with better performance at this price.
A good graphics card is a graphics card that is intelligently designed to evacuate heat while controlling its consumption and the heat generated. Here, MSI uses many technologies to get the job done.
There are heat pipes Core Pipes, it is placed on the GPU to ensure the widest possible contact area and heat dissipation over the entire length of the heatsink. Then comes the technology Airflow Control. The latter is responsible for improving the circulation of air flow thanks to deflectors and wave-shaped fins. Finally, as important as the two technologies above are, the three Torx 4.0 fans help redirect the air.
If you choose, you can activate the RGB LED backlight Mystical Light. The latter is light and elegant, you can customize it from dedicated software. The application is called MSI Center, it also allows to monitor, modify and optimize all parameters in real time and with a few clicks.
Be careful though: this graphics card has a TDP of 350 Watts. You need good nutrition to keep it going.
In terms of connectors, the back of the card is well -supplied: three DisplayPort ports (v1.4a) as well as an HDMI that supports 4K definition at 120 Hz set by the HDMI 2.1 standard.
The first technology to be implemented, DLSS is at the heart of Nvidia cards. The idea of super-sampling technology is to reduce the strain on your GPU by translating the original image into lower definition and then, using artificial intelligence, elevate that image to give the illusion that it was created higher. meaning.
Second technology, Nvidia Broadcast also uses the Ampere architecture. This opens the door to cooling features like removing the virtual background for the digital green screen, noise cancellation, and sound tracking.
FPS fans can enable Nvidia Reflex and Nvidia Boost in supported games to reduce latency. Finally, for video streaming, the card provides AV1 decoding to enjoy the latest from Netflix and other major streaming platforms.
Also, if you plan to use the card for work, be aware that RTX cards are very versatile. Application fields such as graphical visualization, machine learning, data analysis, and artificial intelligence (AI) harness the computing power of these cards and Nvidia technologies. We just tested the Nvidia Canvas software to do a digital job, and the result is worth a turn.
The Nvidia graphics card is back in stock
After long months of shortages, Nvidia graphics cards are gradually returning to stock. The manufacturer has even created a “Restock & Reloaded” page that allows you to see the availability of its graphics cards.
