Igor’s Lab recently revealed the release date of a new model of Nvidia Ampere graphics cards, apparently called GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is known. RTX 3080 Ti can be called the most anticipated unannounced graphics card of the Ampere family; Especially considering the fact that it is going to use 20 GB of graphics memory buffer; While the RTX 3080 is equipped with a 10 GB buffer. Because the RTX 3090 is more like a direct replacement for the Titan graphics card, the RTX 3080 Ti can be considered the true flagship of Nvidia’s RTX 3000 family.
Igor’s Lab is a reputable media outlet that has previously been able to make accurate predictions about unannounced products; But do not forget that everything remains a rumor until we see the official reaction of Nvidia. Nvidia executives may decide to unveil the RTX 3080 Ti graphics card on a date other than the announced Igor’s Lab, or there may be production issues due to supply chain issues.
According to Igor’s Lab, the introduction date of RTX 3080 Ti is February 2021 (February and March 2016). Meanwhile, it is said that the green team intends to introduce another graphics card called RTX 3060 in January 2021 (January and February 2016) and before the RTX 3080 Ti model. It is worth mentioning that RTX 3060 Ti was introduced some time ago. This planning seems logical; Because the RTX 3060 is set to appear in the role of the best economical graphics card in the RTX 3000 family, and it is the same graphics card that users will definitely appreciate.
However, we are still unsure of the status of Nvidia’s supply chain; Because until a few weeks ago, several reports said that Nvidia could not keep up with demand. In addition, Igor’s Lab says that the RTX 3060 graphics card will be available in two separate models with 6 or 12 GB of graphics memory. If this rumor is true, then RTX 3060 will definitely reduce the purchase value of RTX 3080.
From the very first days of the unveiling of the RTX 3000 graphics cards, some experts were surprised by the presence of a 10 GB buffer in the RTX 3080 and pointed the finger of criticism at Nvidia; Because this amount of graphical memory may not be enough for all 2020 games. No one knows Nvidia’s plans at the moment, but the Green Team may be looking to launch the 20GB RTX 3080. Reports say that the RTX 3080 Ti graphics card was originally intended to be based on a chip called the PG132 SKU20, and has long been on production lines.
At present, we do not know the exact number of CUDA cores of the mentioned graphics card; But apparently the RTX 3080 Ti’s graphics memory will be twice that of the RTX 3080. Of course, the final name of the product has not been confirmed yet, and it is possible that Nvidia will include the 20 GB product with the SUPER extension. If you are outside of Iran and have a sufficient budget, we suggest you go to the RTX 3090 if possible or wait for the RTX 3080 Ti to be released.
The RTX 3080 Ti will be the true flagship of Nvidia’s RTX 3000 family
According to Videocardz media, considering that Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 requires a lot of graphical memory, the 10 GB RTX 3080 memory will probably bother gamers while playing the game.
Next-generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony use advanced graphics techniques to process large games well, which makes graphics memory on gaming PCs more important than ever. With AMD’s flagship 16GB release, Nvidia feels it needs to respond directly to this graphics card.
The RTX 3080 Ti is powered by a GA102 GPU and is between RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. The exact chip name of this product is GA102-250-A1, which will have 384 bits of GDDR6X graphics memory.
Some reports say that due to Samsung’s inability to supply enough eight-nanometer chips, Nvidia plans to move to TSMC next year. We do not know at this time which lithography the 2021 models of RTX 3000 cards are based on.
