ASUS service and support website already lists the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.
ASUS confirms GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
The manufacturer becomes the first to confirm that such NVIDIA SKU even exists. The listing reveals that two ROG STRIX graphics cards are in development: ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O20G-GAMING (with factory-overclocking) and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-20G-GAMING (likely to feature reference clock speeds).
According to ASUS, the RTX 3080 Ti SKU would feature 20GB of memory, which would confirm the previous rumors about the graphics card’s specifications:

The graphics card is expected to feature GA102 GPU with 10496 CUDA cores, the same number as the flagship RTX 3090. It would appear that RTX 3080 Ti will simply offer less memory (20GB vs 24GB) and carry a lower TDP, to better combat Radeon RX 6900 XT series.
NVIDIA was initially planning to launch the RTX 3080 Ti in January, although new information seems to confirm that the SKU has been pushed back till after the Chinese New Year in February. It is unclear why the 3080 Ti listing appears on the ASUS website right now.
GeForce RTX 3060 with 12GB memory
The listing also confirms that ASUS will launch RTX 3060 with 12GB memory. The company is expected to launch two ROG STRIX SKUs as well. The RTX 3060 12GB is the only SKU that was still planned for late January launch.
