New details about the promising “pre-flagship” video card Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti have appeared on the Web. As Videocardz writes regarding its source, the novelty will be presented on April 12. Other sources have not yet confirmed the date, but there is no doubt about it – and here’s why.
The fact is that it is on April 12 that the Nvidia GTC 2021 conference starts – and it traditionally does not go without major announcements. And the premiere of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti pulls on this because the new product will be only half a step (or even a quarter) lower than the current flagship GeForce RTX 3090.
And here we move on to new technical details about the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. If at first (last year) rumors attributed this model to 20 GB of memory, now we are talking only about 12 GB of GDDR6X memory. But that’s not all – there will be fewer CUDA cores: 10240 instead of 10496. GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will receive 80 computing units – only 2 less than RTX 3090, but 12 more than RTX 3080. Thus, GeForce The RTX 3080 Ti’s performance will be very close to the performance of the GeForce RTX 3090. This is probably why the new product will not receive 20 GB to distance it slightly from the flagship model. As for the memory bus width, it will be 384 bits.
