Hardware leaker and YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead has shared an image of the packaging for one of GIGABYTE’s upcoming custom GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GAMING OC. The box confirms the new flagship model’s memory configuration, which, as previous rumors have suggested, comprises 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM. NVIDIA will reportedly unveil its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards on May 31, with reviews coming a bit later in early June.
Just to confirm from my end – the RTX 3080 Ti 12GB is certainly real, and coming soon™️.— Moore's Law Is Dead (@mooreslawisdead) May 4, 2021
I obviously blacked out the background to protect someone, but that's a real 3080 Ti someone I know has their hands on… pic.twitter.com/sn18aNbboa
Gigabyte was among the first NVIDIA board partners to leak their whole lineup through the EEC website. The company is developing various designs from its AORUS Master and Xtreme series as well as Gaming, Vision, and Eagle. The packaging that was pictured below is definitely the Gaming OC variant, which is also confirmed to be equipped with 12GB memory.
