AMD has been on a roll lately, not only challenging Intel's product leadership in the CPU market, but also making NVIDIA a big deal with the launch of the graphics part of the RX 6000 series. In response to threats from AMD'S RX 6000 series of graphics CARDS, particularly from AMD's flagship format, Twitter user @Kopite7kimi revealed that NVIDIA is preparing the RTX 3080 Ti graphics card shipment plan.
It seems that NVIDIA is under a lot of pressure from AMD'S RX6000 series, especially the attractive pricing of RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT, and RTX 3080 and RTX3090. The price difference between RTX 3080 and RTX3090 is too large. Therefore, NVIDIA is preparing the RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB of video memory to meet the competition of products in this price period. For old Huang pour not troublesome, with a knife on the line.
According to the source, RTX 3080 Ti has the same number of 10,496 CUDA cores as RTX 3090, USES GA102-250-KD-A1 cores, is equipped with 20GB GDDR6X video memory, consumes the same power as RTX 3080, and also has removed support for NVLINK. In addition, if the core size is consistent, the core frequency of RTX 3080 Ti may be lower than that of RTX 3090 to distinguish its performance positioning and price differences.
It is not clear how RTX 3080 Ti will be priced, but for the vast majority of consumers, RTX 3090 is not much of a purchase if it is not out of stock. It is not significantly different in performance from RTX 3080 Ti, and it is much more expensive.
