Retailers have begun listing custom models of NVIDIA’s new Ampere flagship, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but the prices aren’t exactly pretty. One, Australia’s Computers Perth, has GIGABYTE’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti EAGLE and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VISION OC graphics cards listed for $1,732.75 AUD, which translates to around $1,345. Another, New Zealand’s Aquila Technology, has MSI’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VENTUS 3X for $2,543.46 NZD (around $1,832) and GIGABYTE’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC for $3,152.50 NZD (around $2,270). While these prices may not be final, they do suggest that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will cost quite a bit more than the base model, which starts at $699.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is based on GA102-225 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores. This model will feature half of the capacity offered by RTX 3090, which is 12GB GDDR6X. NVIDIA is to announce this SKU on May 18th, which should be a week prior to the official launch and (hopefully) global availability. After all, this model has been in development for many months now.
