NVIDIA preparing a response to Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card.
NVIDIA to launch GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in January
According to the new report from HKEPC, NVIDIA will launch its new high-end GPU in January. The next SKU in the GeForce RTX 30 pipeline is the RTX 3080 Ti, according to the article. This particular model had, in fact, just appeared in the rumor last week when kopite7kimi provided the initial specs of the graphics card. Most of these specs have been confirmed by HKEPC.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be equipped with GA102-250-KD-A1 GPU. The website reports on the 10496 CUDA core count (we were unable to confirm this part of the leak yet). The graphics card would also feature 20GB of GDDR6X memory (the memory speed is currently unknown) across a 320-bit interface. The TGP of the RTX 3080 Ti is estimated at 320W, which is the same value as for RTX 3080 non-Ti. The site reports that 3080 Ti will lack the NVLINK connector. The board number of the RTX 3080 Ti is PG133 SKU 15 (RTX 3080 uses the same board design).
We have been able to partially confirm this rumor just today. Such SKU does exist on the most recent roadmap. However, please do note the roadmaps do change when manufacturers adjust their plans to better target competitor’s offers. We have already seen such an adjustment with RTX 3080 20GB graphics card, which was eventually scrapped.
AMD is currently not expected to have other high-end GPUs in January, thus we expect no significant changes to the current roadmap.
