This GPU has been on the cards for NVIDIA as AMD has made a great comeback to challenge the graphics giant. Also, we have heard a lot of rumors as well as specs of this upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card.
However, it seems NVIDIA is skeptical about the launch of this card, thanks to the global chip shortage. ITHome reports that what we previously thought that the RTX 3080 Ti might end up launching in April, is now rumored to be delayed to May.
NVIDIA internally issued a new announcement that the release time of the next-generation RTX30 series model. The RTX 3080 Ti 12G has been delayed again, and it is now expected to be released around mid-May.
Not only NVIDIA is planning to launch the RTX 3080 Ti 12GB GPU but also planning to launch an RTX 3070 Ti 8GB GPU as well. The RTX 3080 Ti will feature 12 GB of GDDR6X memory and will have memory speeds at 19 Gbps.
Reports also indicate that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be using a 384-bit bus interface which equals a total bandwidth of 912 GB/s. The TGP for the card is set at 320 Watts. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti on the other hand will feature the GA104-400-A1 GPU. It will also offer 6144 CUDA cores or 48 SMs.
While featuring 8 GB GDDR6X memory, the chip will utilize the higher-grade GDDR6X chips rather than the standard GDDR6 modules featured on the existing GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. The TGP of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will end up close to the RTX 3080 at around 250-275W. It will also retain a 256-bit bus interface, and pin speeds should be rated at 19 Gbps like the GeForce RTX 3080 and the RTX 3080 Ti.
