According to a rumour, NVIDIA is preparing to unveil the next card in the RTX 30-series, called the RTX 3080Ti. The card is reportedly aimed at competing against the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, featuring 12GB of GDDR6X memory, and it will also have a mining restriction placed on-board that will hopefully discourage miners from buying the card.
The RTX 3080Ti is said to have the GA102-225 GPU, with 10240 CUDA cores within a total of 80 SM units. Base clock speeds are expected to be at 1365 MHz and boost clock speeds at 1665 MHz. For memory, it will have a 12GB of 384-bit wide GDDR6X vRAM with a total bandwidth of 912 GB/s and the memory speeds will be the same as the RTX 3080, which is 19 Gbps.
The card’s TGP will be rated at 320watts, and it is expected to have an MSRP of $999 (Approx. Rs. 74,610) in the U.S. Interestingly, the RTX 3080Ti will come with a mining hash rate limiter, which NVIDIA first introduced with the RTX 3060. That limiter was broken quickly by the crypto mining community, so it will be interesting to see if NVIDIA will claim an unhackable limiter for the RTX 3080Ti too.
As mentioned above, the card will be announced on May 18th, and reviewers are expected to post their reviews on 25th of May, while the card goes on sale from May 26th.
