Are ASUS RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards Worth Upgrading To?


The second generation of RTX is finally here! This month we have seen the release of the new 30 Series Graphics cards from NVIDIA. Promising to deliver the ultimate performance for gamers and creators, the brand new range of Ampere-powered GPUs are sure to be a serious upgrade to your current setup. With new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and more- is it really worth upgrading? Read on as we delve deep into the new range of ASUS graphics cards!


ASUS engineers have worked from the ground-up to develop their new 3070, 3080 and 3090 graphics cards so you can experience a whole new era of performance and fidelity for PC gaming. Each of the new 30-series graphics cards are powered by the new NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers an impressive 1.9X improvement in performance-per-watt compared to the previous-gen. You heard that correct- this is the greatest generational leap in performance in NVIDIA's history!



Power, cooling and style have all been vastly improved to house the new 30 Series and to deliver the best possible performance from the new chips. You're sure to find a 30-series to suit you, with each card tuned to different needs of builders. With epic performance, silent operation and epic style, the new Strix series is one to watch! Available in RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070, it's exciting to see the fresh new designs which have been developed. For the first time in years, the iconic ROG Strix cooler has been redesigned to pack more power than before! Enjoy more airflow, more heatsink surface area, and a new stylish design.



For users who want to opt for the TUF series, you're in luck! The TUF has returned with a striking, hard-edged design and pumped-up features to power both GeForce RTX 3080 and 3090 series cards. Perfect for more straight-forward PC builds, the TUF graphics cards are stronger and leaner than ever before. A brilliantly-modern angular design is complemented by RGB lighting and a large 2.7-slot heatsink for improved cooling when handling heavy loads. The nine-blade Axial Tech fans push plenty of air, ensuring your graphics card stays cool when the gaming heats up. We can't wait to see what the TUF can handle!


It doesn't end there! For the 3070 series, ASUS brings us a Dual RTX card with double the cooling for double the fun. The stealthy-style and 0dB mode is sure to make it an attractive choice for gamers. In the future, we will also see a new family of Turbo cards which will bring the new generation of graphics to specialised builds.



I think it's safe to say, there really is an option for everyone when it comes to the new ASUS 30 Series graphics cards. It's clear that the ASUS engineers have worked hard to bring us powerful new upgrades, whilst staying true to their style and iconic features which people recognise and love. As the world of gaming is ever-expanding and evolving, we think it's definitely worth an upgrade to the new 30 Series graphics cards. We for one can't wait to see them in action!
