In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray dive into graphics, graphics, and more graphics, because it’s GeForce RTX 3080 time.
Brad kicks things off with his review of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition. Bottom line? It’s an absolute beast, and a quiet one at that, but you may need to upgrade your power supply to feed it. Check out all his coverage below:
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Founders Edition review: Staggeringly powerful
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 tested: 5 key things you need to know
- MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio review: A silent, face-melting behemoth
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080: 3440×1440 ultrawide benchmarks
- Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series vs GeForce RTX 20-series: Full spec comparison
- How Microsoft and Nvidia plan to kill game-loading times on PCs
After that, the gang talks about AMD’s attempt to derail Nvidia’s hype train by teasing the Radeon RX 6000 reveal date and new triple-fan cooler. Finally, we don’t normally get into business topics, but Nvidia is using all the money it gets from those RTX 3080 sales to buy Arm for $40 billion. What?!
