It seems that NVIDIA has decided to postpone the presentation of the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, making the release coincide with that of the NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti. Both cards will be available from early June according to the unofficial roadmap
These are the GPUs that will complete the offer based on Ampere in the high end. We are talking about the strategically rumored NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and her younger sister, but interesting nonetheless NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti. Surely the new GeForce 3080 Ti will fill a big gap in the NVIDIA offer between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090, both in terms of price (availability permitting) and performance. It will be about an ultimate card for 4K gaming, while the RTX 3090 will become the reference point for approaching 8K or for professionals.
NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti, on the other hand, is in a narrower position: too advanced for QHD gaming, but perhaps too little for a good 4K without hesitation. So it is in a bit of limbo currently, although this is probably a more future proof solution than the smooth 3070. Let’s see the new details on the release of NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti released by the Videocardz site.
NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti: delayed release for joint launch with NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti
Initially the rumors had announced that the release of NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti was scheduled for the 18th of May, with the availability expected for the 26th of the same month. Now it seems that the Santa Clara company has decided to postpone its release for a double presentation together with NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti. Both GPUs will in fact be announced on May 31st according to the latest rumors. The reviews will instead be revealed starting from June 2 for NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, while for NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti it will be necessary to wait until 9 of the same month. The release on the market, however, is not yet clear in the new calendar even though the sellers seem to have already started receiving GPU stocks. Marketing is usually scheduled for the day after the review embargo.
Expected 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 core CUDA 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 throttling system to discourage miners from buying it.
Expected specifications of NVIDIA RTX 3070 Ti
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. It is expected that the GPU will offer 6144 CUDA cores organized in 48 MS. That’s just 4% more CUDA cores than the GeForce RTX 3070 and about 30% less 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 keep a 256-bit bus interface. Also in this case we find the LHR (Lite Hash Rate) protection mechanism against mining. That’s all from the hardware section, keep following us!
