NVIDIA’s oft-rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is most definitely happening. As spotted by 9550pro, ASUS’ graphics cards support and services page has listed the “ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O20G-GAMING” and “ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-20G-GAMING,” which implies that the supercharged flagship should be announced relatively soon.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will reportedly feature 10,496 CUDA cores just like NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090, but with only 20 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 320-bit memory bus instead of 24 GB/384-bit. It is also expected to have a lower TDP: 320 watts vs. 350 watts.
Note that ASUS’ graphics cards support and services page has also listed two GeForce RTX 3060 models, the “ROG-STRIX-RTX3060-O12G-GAMING” and “ROG-STRIX-RTX3060-12G-Gaming.” It isn’t clear how much weaker these non-Titanium variants will be, but they should provide a similarly impressive performance upgrade over the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER.
A recent report claimed that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been postponed from its original release. Apparently, NVIDIA wanted to announce it in January, but now it’ll be unveiled no earlier than the end of February.
