Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti GPU is expected to arrive in April to bridge the gap between the base 3080 and the monstrous 3090. Now, a new report from a renowned informant Kopite7kimi reveals possible specifications for the next graphics card.
The RTX 3080 Ti has been around for rumors even before the RTX 3000 series was announced. He has seen many changes in specifications over time, but now that the launch is approaching, it appears that Nvidia has decided to review the core and memory configuration once again.
According to the new leak, the RTX 3080 Ti will feature the PCB design PG133-SKU15 and the graphic core GA102-250-KD-A1. It will now have 10240 CUDA cores in a total of 80 SM units. Once the main core configuration has been revised, all old clocks and TMU / ROP counts that were leaked previously should be discarded.
As for memory, it will have 12 GB of GDDR6X with a memory speed of up to 19 Gbps, unlike the 3090 which has 19.5 Gbps. In addition, as we are now getting 12 GB of memory, the video card must use a 384-bit bus interface with a total bandwidth of 912 GB / s. However, the TGP will be the same as the RTX 3080 with 320 watts.
Of course, the RTX 3080 Ti aims to compete with AMD’s RX 6900 XT for a lower price. As for the release date, we expect to see an official announcement in April this year.
