The electronics company Asus accidentally leaked the existence of the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti, a weakened version of the 3080 that is supposed to be launched next February after the Chinese New Year.
Two SKUs appear on Asus’ website: The ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O20G-GAMING and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-20G-GAMING. The former is likely to be factory overclocking and the latter is likely to use reference clocks. Just like previous rumors and leaks, the 3080 Ti will sit between the 3080 and 3090 in memory. The 3080 offers users 10 GB of GDDR6X RAM, while the 3090 offers 24 GB. The 3080 Ti offers 20 GB.
At the moment, the price of the 3080 Ti is in the air. Since the 3080 is priced at $ 700 and the 3090 sells for $ 1500, the 3080 Ti is likely to be around $ 1,000. Given the huge demand for both cards, it’s possible that Nvidia could charge more, but since AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT has a fixed price of $ 999, it’s likely that the green team can not move too far off course. .
The Asus leak also reveals the existence of the rumored RTX 3060 12 GB, a direct competitor to AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB. The 3060 12 GB is expected to be launched in January.
In the fall, Nvidia introduced its GeForce RTX 3000 series, with the RTX 3080 attracting the most interest due to its ability to deliver 4K graphics for less than $ 1,000. As a result, it was difficult to find the GeForce RTX 3080 because gamers tracked down the graphics card whenever it was in stock.
We hope the probable arrival of the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti will soon offer another option.
