NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 12GB memory

We have received a new update on the RTX 3080 Ti.

NVIDIA has allegedly changed the specifications for its upcoming high-end RTX 3080 Ti graphics card once again. We were actually in a process of confirming the specs that we received, when @kopite7kimi, the person who leaked GA100/GA102 specs months ahead of launch, has now shared exactly what we have been hearing.

The most recent update to the NVIDIA product roadmap lists GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 12GB coming in April. The date has not been confirmed by other sources yet. This is actually a third date from the same roadmap, so we wouldn’t necessarily believe that cannot change again. However, this is the latest information that we have. More importantly though, the card is no longer listed as ‘on hold’.

Kopite has revealed that the card might feature 10240 CUDA cores, which means that the RTX 3080 would offer 80 Streaming Multiprocessors, 12 more than RTX 3080 and 2 fewer than RTX 3090. Thus the card should offer a very similar performance to RTX 3090, but it will all depend on the clock speeds and enforced TDP (earlier reports have suggested it will be 320W like RTX 3080).

With 12GB GDDR6X memory, the graphics card would have to rely on a wider 384-bit memory bus. Previous rumors have suggested that the card might feature 20 GB GDDR6X memory, in fact, this information has been available to board partners for at least 2 months. Some of them have already prepared product codes for the RTX 3080 Ti 20GB. However, it would seem that those product codes need to change now.

NVIDIA would launch GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in April. The exact date has not yet been announced by NVIDIA to board partners.
