According to yesterday’s statement, Nvidia has decided to postpone the release of GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB. It is said that the shortage of parts in the supply chain is one of the reasons for the delay. The original release date for this graphics card is December 17, 2021, and the sale date is January 11, 2022.
The original Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 12GB schedule is the same as the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB, but it will not be released on December 17, 2021. Compared with the existing GeForce RTX 3080, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 12GB uses GDDR6X video memory, and the capacity is increased by 2GB. The video memory bit width has also been increased from 320 bits to 384 bits, resulting in a higher video memory bandwidth, from 760 GB/s to 912 GB/s. In addition, GeForce RTX 3080 12GB will use GA102-220, and the number of CUDA cores will also increase, from 8704 to 8960, an increase of 2.9%. According to VideoCardz
reports, thanks to improved specifications, the mining speed of GeForce RTX 3080 12GB will be 20% faster than GeForce RTX 3080.
However, the upgrade of GeForce RTX 3080 12GB comes at a price, it is rumored that its TDP may be increased to 340W to 350W, which is basically the same as GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, but GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has more CUDA cores with the same video memory configuration.
