Images of what looks like an MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X, the latest creature based on the Ampere architecture that NVIDIA is preparing to present in a couple of weeks or so, have leaked. Availability in stores, on the other hand, would be expected at the end of May
We’ve already talked a lot about the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, a GPU based on the Ampere architecture that it will be positioned between 3080 and 3090, bridging that important price gap that exists between the two high-end cards currently on the market. This graphics card will also be the direct competitor of the AMD RX 6900 XT which performs better than a 3080 in most scenarios. The target will obviously be 4K gaming without compromises. One of the first custom that will arrive on the market will certainly be this MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X.
MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X: the first custom
Some time ago, images of a whole pallet of MSI RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X graphics cards were leaked, instead the protagonist of the latest rumors would be MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X, what should be the Taiwanese manufacturer’s top custom design. In fact, the cards of the SUPRIM X they are literally the best of the best with a truly excellent thermal and aesthetic design, as well as ad a major overclock of GPUs and memories. In short, the SUPRIM X series gets the most out of NVIDIA’s GPUs. This card in particular consists of a huge triple slot and triple fan heatsink to the latest TORX 4.0 fans, a brushed aluminum back plate, a powerful custom PCB design, dual BIOS design, and so much more.
Thanks to the wccftech site, pictures of a box of the MSI RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X card have been leaked. The photo should come from a distribution center, but no further details on the release date and location are provided. The price was not revealed either. Taking into account that an RTX 3080 Ti Founder Edition should have a list cost of $ 999, a premium custom model could easily sell for $ 1200-1500, but the street price could even touch $ 2000 if we think about the current situation of the GPU market. We remind you that the announcement of the new NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti GPU is expected on May 18, while the marketing should begin on May 26.
The alleged specifications of NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti
Let’s take a review of what we know about the specs of the new GPU. The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB FE (Founders Edition) graphics card is expected to feature a PCB design encoded as PG132-SKU18 and the GA102-225-KD-A1 graphics chip. It looks like the latest reinterpretation of this GPU will have 10240 CUDA cores for a total of 80 SM units, almost as much as an RTX 3090 which has just a handful more. The new top-of-the-range video card should deliver a clock speed of 1365 MHz in base and 1665 MHz in boost, slightly below the flagship RTX 3090 probably due to the TGP which should remain the same as the RTX 3080 or 320 W.
As for the memory, the card will be equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory (even at the beginning it seemed to be 20). Unlike the RTX 3090’s 19.5Gbps speeds, the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti is expected to maintain the same memory speed as the RTX 3080’s 19Gbps. It is also assumed that the new graphics card will use a 384-bit bus interface for a theoretical total bandwidth of 912 GB / s. That should still be enough to power the huge 10,000-core chip, although a slightly more generous buffer would have made this GPU longer-lasting. Additionally this GPU should use the new hash rate limiting system to discourage miners from buying them. That’s all from the hardware section, keep following us!
