Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti specs: GPU could arrive by end of 2020, significantly faster than the RTX 2080 Ti
Nvidia’s upcoming flagship, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, could arrive later this year if recent rumors are to be believed. What’s even more interesting is that the GPU will be significantly faster than the current-gen RTX 2080 Ti.
The latest Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti rumors came from KittyCorgi on Twitter, according to Tech Radar. The leaker posted detailed information on Nvidia’s upcoming Ampere series of GPUs but Tech Radar warned that the leak should be taken with a grain of salt considering that the Twitter account is relatively new.
Based on the post, Nvidia is developing five different graphics cards for its Ampere series of GPUs. All cards will sport ray-tracing capabilities, which means that gamers will be in for a better gaming experience thanks to the GPU’s ability to produce life-like lighting effects.
“1 Surprisingly, the next-gen chip will be based on Samsung 10nm node,” the leaker posted on Twitter. “2 Not very solid about what GA102 really got, may struggle to be 40% above 2080ti, but bound to be under that number if compared against full bore TU102. 3 SLi will be available to GA102 ONLY. 4 RTX for everyone.”
The leaker also posted a table showing the specs of the upcoming graphics cards in the Ampere series. It shows that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which has a code name of GA 102 in the table, will have 5376 CUDA cores, which represents a 16 percent increase compared to the RTX Titan.
The RTX 3080 Ti will have a memory of 12GB and a 384-bit bus interface. It will also be up to 40 percent faster than the RTX 2080 Ti.
Next to the upcoming flagship is a card referred to as GA103 GPU in the table, which is likely to be called Nvidia GeForce RTX3080. It will feature 3840 CUDA cores, which represents a big improvement over then 3072 CUDA cores in the RTX 2080. It will come with a 320-bit bus interface and 10GB memory, which translates to a performance boost of around 10 percent compared to the RTX 2080.
