Nvidia will continue to market new references of GeForce RTX graphics cards despite the global shortages that we are experiencing.
After the GeForce RTX 3090, RTX 3080, RTX 3070, RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3060… Nvidia is preparing to unveil two new references. These are the Nvidia NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. It is not only two letters Ti which are added to their denomination but they are indeed new references with updated characteristics.
What would the “Ti” bring?
The RTX 3070 Ti would use an Ampere GA104-400 GPU with 6,144 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6X memory. She would arrive by the end of May. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3070 uses the GA104-300 GPU with 5,888 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 (non-X) memory.
Nvidia could, like the GeForce 3060, restrict the mining of ETH, nevertheless it is a protection which is not sufficient to stop this practice. Just mine other cryptos or use custom drivers to lift Nvidia’s software restriction.
Regarding the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, it would integrate a GA102-225 GPU, with 10,240 CUDA cores with 12 GB of GDDR6X RAM. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3080 has 10 GB of GDDR6X and the GeForce RTX 3090 has 24 GB of GDDR6X memory. Its clock frequency would be almost as high as that of the RTX 3090.
These two graphics cards are expected to be unveiled in April for marketing in May. In short, these are two new cards that you will not be able to buy.
