GeForce RTX 30 × 0 cards with free game, GeForce Now display support and 8K

GeForce RTX 30 × 0 cards with free game, GeForce Now display support and 8K

During yesterday’s presentation of graphics cards based on the Ampere architecture, we mainly focused on the products themselves, and NVIDIA, so to speak, shared a lot of other information as well. We saw, among others, a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs: Legion, ray-tracing in Fortnite and 8K TVs in action.

GeForce RTX 30 × 0 with Free Game and GeForce Now Subscription

Yesterday we probably agreed that the prices of the GeForce RTX 3070 and 3080 cards promise to be quite attractive, and it turns out that this is not the end of the good news. NVIDIA confirmed today that every buyer will get two more bonuses when purchasing a next-generation card. The first is the code for the third installment in the Watch Dogs series, Legion, which is scheduled to launch on October 29. The second is the possibility of activating a subscription to the GeForce Now service for one year, completely free. Codes can be obtained by purchasing the card from September 17 to October 29, and more details can be found on the manufacturer’s website.

NVIDIA also boasted that ray tracing will soon be available in the second most popular game in the world after Minecraft (which already supports ray tracing), specifically in Fortnite. The trailer for the new version appeared at the beginning of the presentation and the effects seem very satisfactory. By the way, there is also a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077, which is mainly focused on presenting graphical possibilities related to ray tracing. It’s probably worth noting that this movie has more views than the same presentation for Fortnite …

Will gamers now connect their PC to 8K TVs?

What’s also worth noting is the fact that a card like the GeForce RTX 3090 lets you play at 8K resolution and 60 frames per second. This is probably the first time in history that graphics cards are ahead of the capabilities of available monitors. Yes, the 8K monitor can be bought today, but its prices are not encouraging, so it is not very popular. 4K resolution is basically a standard, but only HDMI 2.1 provides enough bandwidth to ensure the ability to transfer 4K images with 120Hz refresh rate and 8K at 60Hz. This interface is only offered by some TVs, including LG OLED , which were shown at the NVIDIA conference, when select transmitters were able to reproduce in 8K resolution.

All of this may mean that when buying a new card, PC gamers will want to use the TV as a screen, not a monitor. In such an environment, the competition from consoles can be even fiercer.
