NVIDIA is allegedly planning a new GA102 SKU.
A return of GeForce RTX 3070 Ti?
Kopite7kimi, a leaker that correctly predicted NVIDIA Ampere Gaming specs months in advance is now claiming that NVIDIA is preparing a new GA102 GPU. The device would allegedly feature 7424 CUDA cores, 1536 more than RTX 3070 and 1280 fewer than RTX 3080. This SKU would allegedly feature a 320-bit memory bus and 10GB of GDDR6X memory. According to Kopite, the new variant would be equipped with a GPU codenamed GA102-150.
NVIDIA has recently canceled its plans to launch GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB. Both SKUs were to offer doubled VRAM compared to the models already announced. This was meant to be a direct response to AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6900 series, which are all going to offer 16GB of memory.
It is unclear what would be the model name of the GA102-150-based graphics card. It may be a return to the RTX 3070 Ti SKU. The 3070 Ti was initially going to offer GA104 GPU with all CUDA cores enabled (6144), the new rumor would put a bigger GA102 GPU into the graphics card instead.
GA102-150-KD-A1, 7424FP32, 320bits
