At the just-concluded CES 2022 exhibition, NVIDIA released the GeForce RTX 3050 for the desktop platform and showed the new generation of GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. The rumored GeForce RTX 3080 12GB and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB did not appear in the past, and Nvidia did not reveal more information.
Nvidia originally planned to have the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB graphics card at CES 2022, but changed plans at the last minute, according to Wccftech. Nvidia has moved the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB launch time to January 11 at 6 am PST, the pre-order or sale time and the release time will be the same day, and the pricing is still temporarily not clear. Compared with the existing GeForce RTX 3080, the GDDR6X memory used in the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB version increases the capacity by 2GB, which means that the memory bit width may be increased from 320 bits to 384 bits. In addition, the number of SMs may be increased to 70 units, which will be equipped with 8960 CUDA cores, and the TDP will also be increased to 350W.
