The first images of EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming (12 GB) have leaked, confirming the impending release of a revised GeForce RTX 3080 model that features a slight memory upgrade over the original.
According to the images shared by VideoCardz, EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra graphics card will feature a design that’s largely inspired by the original, which can be identified by its ARGB LED strip with EVGA logo and carbon-fiber-inspired shroud. Users will find 2 GB of additional memory versus the standard model.
“This model makes use of the updated GA102 GPU with 8960 CUDA cores,” the publication reported. “However, by far the most important upgrade comes to RTX 3080’s memory subsystem, which is an additional 2GB of capacity.”
“A higher core count and bigger VRAM will require more power. The new model comes with 350W TDP over the original 320W by default. Those are of course NVIDIA reference specs and the FTW3 Ultra model is more than likely to go higher.”
NVIDIA will reportedly announce the GeForce RTX 3080 (12 GB) tomorrow. EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming is listed for $919.99 on its official web store, but it’s unclear what sort of premium the new model might carry.
