The long-fabled Titanium revision of NVIDIA’s flagship Ampere graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, should be unveiled to the public relatively soon. This is according to a new report from Igor Wallossek, whose contacts have revealed that the heavily anticipated GPU is just about ready to enter mass production. Wallossek also confirmed previous speculation that NVIDIA has implemented a stricter and more effective version of the GeForce RTX 3060’s ETH (Ether) cryptomining limiter in the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti via an updated GA102 GPU labeled GA102-202 or GA102-302. It was just a few days ago that habitual hardware leaker kopite7kimi hinted that anti-mining measures would be added to the rest of the GeForce RTX 30 Series lineup.
I've said before, maybe not GA106 only.— kopite7kimi (@kopite7kimi) April 15, 2021
For example, we would meet GA102-302/202 and GA104-302/202. https://t.co/pGghHbikbV
Interesting is the way to the final version and the testing in the labs of the manufacturers or their contract manufacturers in the last days. While the older QS [qualified samples] of the RTX 3080 Ti still ran without complaint with the old driver and full hash rate, the boards with the new chip from the MP definitely don’t run anymore.
