Prolific leaker kopite7kimi has shared a few additional details pertaining to NVIDIA’s new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU, which is believed to be a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (the model supposedly sits between a GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 in terms of performance).

Surprisingly, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (PG132-SKU35) is said to have a TGP of 320 watts. That would put it right in line with the flagship GeForce RTX 3080’s power demands – 100 watts higher than the standard GeForce RTX 3070.

kopite7kimi also suggests that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is a recent development that was forced into play as a countermeasure against one of AMD’s upcoming Big Navi cards, the Radeon RX 6800 XL.

“It’s an emergency product for 6800XL, seems like a new GTX 465,” he tweeted. The obvious implication here is that NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 can’t measure up to red team’s offering.

We previously learned that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti would feature 7,424 CUDA Cores, as well as 10 GB of GDDR6X memory, just like the GeForce RTX 3080. In contrast, the GeForce RTX 3070 only features 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
