A fresh batch of custom RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards
We have new photos of the upcoming RTX 3080 Ti models.
ZOTAC RTX 3080 Ti AMP Holo/Trinity
ZOTAC is launching AMP Holo and Trinity models based on GA102-225 GPU. The AMP series represents the flagship series from ZOTAC, being only challenged by the ArcticStorm with the preinstalled water block. The company also offers custom models designed specifically for the Chinese market, but those cards are not available worldwide.
The AMP Holo keeps the dual 8-pin power connectors from the RTX 3080 non-Ti model. Both cards look pretty much the same. The important changes are hidden under the triple-fan cooling solution though. This model comes with 10240 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6X memory, both being an upgrade over the non-Ti series.
The Trinity model comes with a slightly different cooler, it is obviously being targeted at a lower price point. This model specifically is the non-OC variant, which means it offers a reference clock speed of 1665 MHz.
Colorful RTX 3080 Ti Advanced
A photo of the Colorful RTX 3080 Ti Advanced has also leaked. This model not-so-bad looking model represents the mid-tier in the Colorful lineup. The Advanced series should be outperformed by Vulcan, Neptune, and KUDAN series. The packaging does not reveal any details on the new SKU, but the card appears to be using the same cooling solution as the RTX 3080 non-Ti. No major changes here.
Lenovo RTX 3080 Ti Legion
Desktop Planning Manager for Legion China has revealed the design of the RTX 3080 Ti model. Two graphics cards were photographed and published on Weibo social media platform. These cards are for pre-built Legion gaming PCs. These two cards are RTX 3080 and an unnamed RTX model which name was blurred out. It does not take a lot of effort to realize that the second card is 3080 Ti though. The only reason we know this is RTX 3080 Ti is that it will not feature an NVLInk connector for multi-GPU configuration. This feature is available to the RTX 3090 series.
This is actually the first board partner that we know of to be introducing major changes to the cooler for the Ti SKU. Both 3080 models are to feature the exact same reference board design, thus most AIBs opted to reuse existing coolers. Apparently, Lenovo decided to put a thicker 3-slot cooler on the new model, which actually makes a lot of sense considering it has the same TDP as RTX 3090 (350W).
NVIDIA will announce its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards on May 31st with availability planned for June 3rd.
