EVGA RTX 3080 12GB model
NVIDIA’s popular 10GB model receives a memory upgrade.
The graphics card pictured below is the upcoming EVGA RTX 3080 12GB FTW3 Ultra, the latest high-end model to be released tomorrow. This model makes use of the updated GA102 GPU with 8960 CUDA cores. However, by far the most important upgrade comes to RTX 3080’s memory subsystem, which is an additional 2GB of capacity.
A higher core count and bigger VRAM will require more power. The new model comes with 350W TDP over the original 320W by default. Those are of course NVIDIA reference specs and the FTW3 Ultra model is more than likely to go higher.
NVIDIA is to announce RTX 3080 12GB tomorrow. According to the latest information, the company made a surprising decision to lift the preorder and review embargo at the same time. Reviewers are struggling to obtain drivers which are sadly not available. This is definitely not how NVIDIA should launch a graphics card.
