NVIDIA Prepping RTX 3070 Ti w/ 7,424 Cores and 320-bit to Tackle AMD’s RX 6800XT

As the first benchmarks of AMD’s Radeon 6000 GPU lineup surface, the alarm bells over at Jensen’s house have started ringing. In an attempt to tackle the RX 6800XT which seems to feature a killer price/performance ratio, NVIDIA has reportedly started working on another GPU based on the GA102 core with 7,424 cores and a 320-bit bus.

Although the source (kimi) hasn’t said anything about the memory of this card, we expect 8 or 10GB of GDDR6X memory across a 320-bit bus, resulting in a bandwidth very similar to the RTX 3080. Looking at the configuration, it doesn’t take long to figure out that this part with either be called the RTX 3070 Super or 3070 Ti.

The leaked 3DMark benchmarks show the RTX 3080 going neck to neck against a Navi 21 part which is either the 6800XT or the 6900XT. If AMD manages to sell the former at $499 with performance on the same level as the RTX 3080, ray-tracing or not, it’s going to be a killer product, something I’d definitely consider buying. As for the top-end part, an AMD exclusive GPU that’s faster than the RTX 3080 and priced the same should mark RTG’s glorious return to the high-end GPU space.
