NVIDIA will shortly announce the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti. As the name suggests, these cards will rank above the existing RTX 3080 and 3070, respectively. So, let’s go through the rumors and expected price of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 3070 Ti graphics card.

NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, 3070 Ti Rumors Roundup:

RTX 3080 Ti was originally rumored to have 20GB of GDDR6X VRAM. However, new speculations say that this has been lowered to 12GB. This is the same capacity as the RTX 3060, although the latter uses the slower GDDR6 memory. It also has GA102-225 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores.

Furthermore, it is rumored to feature a 384-bit memory interface (like RTX 3090). This will result in a memory bandwidth of 912GB/s (up from 760GB/s on the RTX 3080).

The RTX 3070 Ti, on the other side, will have 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB GDDR6X memory. To compare, the regular 3070 features 8GB GDDR6 VRAM. It will come with the same 256-bit bus as its non-Ti counterpart but the faster memory is expected to result in a bandwidth bump by 160 GB/s.

Furthermore, with RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti, team green is undoubtedly adding a hashing restriction for crypto miners. The limit was introduced on RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 cards with the Lite Hash Rate (LHR) branding.

Rumored specifications:

NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti, 3070 Ti Launch Date

NVIDIA has teased a GeForce event on May 31 during its Computex 2021 keynote. Here, the upcoming RTX 3080 Ti will sit between the company’s RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, which have MSRPs of USD 699 and USD 1,499, respectively. By that logic, it should cost somewhere around USD 1,000. Yet, we certainly don’t expect 3080 Ti to be readily available at its MSRP.
