The Titanium variant of NVIDIA’s flagship Ampere graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3080, will reportedly be released sometime in mid-April. This is according to a report published this week on China’s ChannelGate platform, which claims that the oft-rumored GPU will finally be unveiled by green team next month. It isn’t the first time that we’ve heard of a potential April release for NVIDIA’s hotly anticipated GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, either.
“After repeated transmissions for a long time, ChannelGate […] broke the news that the new model NVIDIA is planning after RTX 3060 is RTX 3080 Ti, which is basically determined to be released on the market around mid-April,” MyDrivers explained in its coverage. “It was reported not long ago that NVIDIA has also updated the roadmap to AIC manufacturers, confirming that the RTX 3080 Ti will still be released, but the specifications have changed a lot.”
“Specifically, in the original design, the stream processors of the RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3090 are 10,496, but now it has been reduced to 10,240, and the video memory bit width has been increased from 320-bit to full 384-bit […]. The video memory has dropped from 20 GB to 12 GB.”
Echoing recent rumors, MyDrivers also suggests that NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will feature a cryptocurrency mining limiter to reduce the hash rates of select coins such as Ether to ensure that more graphics cards get into the hands of frustrated gamers. Some enthusiasts speculate that the Titanium variant will cost $999 to go head-to-head with AMD’s flagship RDNA 2 GPU, the Radeon RX 6900 XT.
