In line with our earlier report, it seems that NVIDIA is indeed planning to launch the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti next month with a VRAM buffer of 12GB (GDDR6X). With a price tag of $999 (same as the AMD Big Navi flagship), the Radeon RX 6900 XT, the RTX 3080 Ti would sit firmly between the RTX 3080 ($699) and the RTX 3090 ($1,500), with a core count of 10,496 FP32 and 12GB of GDDR6X memory:
|Graphics Card Name||GPU||FP32 Cores||Memory||Memory Bus||Bandwidth|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090||GA102-300||10,496||24GB GDDR6X||384-bit||936GB/s|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti||GA102-250||10,496||12GB GDDR6X||384-bit?||936GB/s?|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080||GA102-200||8,704||10GB GDDR6X||320-bit||760GB/s|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti||GA104-400||6,144||8GB GDDR6X||256-bit||?|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070||GA104-300||5,888||8GB GDDR6||256-bit||448GB/s|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti||GA104-200||4,864||8GB GDDR6||256-bit||448GB/s|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060||GA106-300||3,584||12GB GDDR6||192-bit||360GB/s|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti||GA106?||6GB GDDR6||160-bit?|
|NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050||GA107-300||2,304||4GB/6GB GDDR6||128/160-bit|
Although the memory buffer of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been reduced from 20GB to just 12GB (vs 16GB on the RX 6900/6800 series), the bus width has been buffed up to 384-bit (vs 320-bit on the 3080), resulting in a massive bandwidth of 936GB/s. Although this makes the card extremely attractive for miners, it’ll likely come with a mining block, limiting the Ethermining hash rate to half or perhaps even lower.
As per Videocardz, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has also been brought back from the dead. It is expected to be based on the GA104-400 die, featuring 6,144 FP32 cores and 8GB of GDRR6X memory. However, the bus width should be the same as the RTX 3070 at 256-bit. At the same time, the use of GDDR6X memory will push the resulting bandwidth to over 500GB/s. The RTX 3070 Ti should be announced in May with a price-tag of $599.
