Whatever your favorite genre, the end of the year promises to be particularly busy in terms of gaming. Graphically demanding titles, which risk leaving the most modest configurations on the floor. What if you take advantage of the sales to upgrade your PC?
Wouldn’t this be the perfect time to set up a new configuration, or more simply give your current machine a little facelift? The crisis of computer components, its shortages and its exorbitant prices are now far behind us, and it is again possible to do good business.

What are the advantages of Nvidia 30 and 40 series GPUs?
Designed for gaming and creation, the Nvidia 30 and 40 series GPUs benefit from numerous innovations. Equipped with an optimized architecture that relies as much on the manufacturer’s ray tracing and Tensor cores, they are real monsters in terms of performance. They stand out in particular thanks to two technologies:
le ray tracing : a veritable revolution in the world of video games when it was announced, ray tracing is a technology that displays realistic lighting by simulating the path of light and its interactions with objects and surfaces. In particular, this makes it possible to obtain particularly realistic reflections, refractions and shadows;
and DLSS : this Nvidia technology, which takes full advantage of the possibilities offered by AI, aims to improve in-game performance. Once activated, DLSS (or super sampling by deep learning) is capable of increasing your number of FPS in game. It also allows you to push the graphics settings a little further, including resolution, without affecting overall performance.

Choosing an Nvidia graphics card also means benefiting from all the features and drivers developed by the manufacturer. You can find there pell-mell:
Nvidia Reflex : this Nvidia technology makes it possible to lower in-game system latency and obtain extremely responsive controls, which is very useful for competitive gaming;
Nvidia Broadcast : this application dedicated to streaming can greatly improve the streaming experience. Noise reduction, virtual backgrounds, automatic cropping and many more functions answer the call;
Nvidia Studio : because it’s not just the game in life, Nvidia has created Nvidia Studio, a suite designed to help creative profiles, in particular by improving the performance of applications such as After Effects, 3DS Max, DaVinci Resolve or Blender .

On the technical side, this version made in Gigabyte of the RTX 3060 Ti benefits from 8 GB of dedicated RAM (in GDDR6) and a PCI Express 4.0 16x bus which gives it enough juice to obtain a fluid image in game. has also been particularly studied to provide a compromise between noise pollution and efficiency. The card does not heat up and remains silent, even in full play.
RTX 3060 The Eagle 8G
On the connector side, there are two HDMI 2.1 ports and a DisplayPort 1.4a port, which is perfect for a configuration with several screens or VR. Generally offered around 480 euros, it is currently available for 299.90 euros at Rue du Commerce.

Sitting at the heart of the 30 series, the RTX 3070 marks a turning point for Nvidia which offers a powerful card, without this being reflected in its price, especially compared to its previous generation counterpart. Offered under 400 euros on promotion, it not only gives a youthful look to a somewhat old configuration, but also gives it a certain longevity.
Cut for QHD or even 4K, the RTX 3070 offers constant performance in game and allows you to reach a high frame rate (guarantee of fluidity), in particular once the DLSS is activated. Not to spoil anything, Nvidia has particularly worked on the power consumption of its 3070 which, with higher performance, is doing much better than the RTX 2070.
For its summer sales, Rue du Commerce offers the Zotac GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge LHR at 384.90 euros instead of the usual 479.90 euros.
