Less than a week to go until the new NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards arrive. In fact, with an official teaser, the Santa Clara house sets the appointment for May 31st
For several weeks nothing else has been talked about in the world of GPUs, but in the end it is NVIDIA itself that dictates the final word: the new NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti will be presented on May 31st officially. This is what transpires in the teaser released on the official Twitter profile of the US manufacturer. NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti will rank very close to the RTX 3090 in brute force, limited only by the smaller memory buffer size and speed. A long-awaited card because it covers an important hole in the current offer that separates the RTX 3080 from the 3090 both in terms of price and performance. Instead NVIDIA RTX 3070 It appears a product a little more insipid, less expected, but certainly not to be overlooked given the speed of the memories equal to 3080. Then everything will obviously depend on the prices, the real great enemy of gamers and enthusiasts all over the world. . But let’s review everything we know so far.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti: specs of the top of the range that was missing
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 width of 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 throttling system to discourage miners from buying it.
NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti: A bit bland mid-range specs
The new mid-range graphics card is expected to feature the GA104-400-A1 GPU. According to rumors, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will use the PG141-SKU10 SKU which is different from what was previously speculated for the GPU, testifying that NVIDIA has probably really decided to change things in the running. The GPU is expected will offer 6144 CUDA cores organized in 48 MS. It deals with only 4% more CUDA cores than the GeForce RTX 3070 and about 30% cheaper than the GeForce RTX 3080.
The NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti will also be equipped with 8GB of GDDR6X memory. The amount would remain the same then, but the memory speed would be higher than the smooth RTX 3070, probably the same we saw on the 3080 with a speed of 19 Gbps compared to the current 14 Gbps of the smooth 3070. The new memory allocation will serve to feed the extra cores faster, although there is no guarantee that there is a significant increase in performance (unless the 3070’s GDDR6 memory was a heavy bottleneck). There were also rumors of a 16 GB version, but that probably won’t see the light under this year. The NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti will have a TGP of about 250-275 W, considering the increase in the number of cores and the more performing memory modules. The card will maintain a 256-bit bus interface. Also in this case we find the LHR protection mechanism (Lite Hash Rate) against mining.
Both NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti will then launch in early June. NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti reviews will be released on June 3, with product launch coming June 4th. Instead NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti will be launched a week later, on June 10th. That’s all from the hardware section, keep following us!
