According to the latest rumors, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be released on May 18th. According to the rumor, the card will be revealed along with its features, pricing, and some preliminary performance figures. Independent testers will release the full performance metrics on May 25th, and the card will be officially available for purchase on May 26th. There’s no word on whether NVIDIA will take pre-orders during the release, but given that they haven’t done so with any previous GeForce RTX 30 series launch, we can expect the RTX 3080 Ti to be the same.
Unlike the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is expected to be released and sold on the same day in early June, according to previous rumors. The card’s precise release date is currently unknown. The Radeon RX 6900 XT will face off against the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, while the Radeon RX 6800 will face off against the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. For the time being, the RTX 3080 will hold its own against the RX 6800 XT.
NVIDIA 3080 Ti ‘Rumored’ Graphics Card Specifications
The PG132-SKU18 PCB architecture and the GA102-225-KD-A1 graphics core are expected to be used in NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB FE (Founders Edition) graphics card. The GA102-225 GPU has also improved since our last look at it, and now has 10240 CUDA cores spread over 80 SM units. The GPU has a base clock speed of 1365 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1665 MHz, which is slower than the current GA102 GeForce RTX GPUs.
The final NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is expected to ship with the latest GA102-202 or GA102-302 GPU core, which has the same specifications as the QS but is mineable.
