The 3070 Ti, in the meantime, is priced from $599 and arrives on June 10.
Speak of an RTX 3080 Ti has been round since Ampere was unveiled. As soon as thought to characteristic 20GB of GDDR6X, Nvidia confirmed the cardboard comes with 12GB—half that of the RTX 3090. Its GA102-225 GPU options 10,240 CUDA cores with a complete of 80 Streaming Multiprocessors (SM) models, 320 third-generation Tensor Cores, and 80 second-generation RT cores.
Nvidia threw out some comparability figures throughout its occasion: The RTX 3080 Ti boasts 1.5 occasions extra efficiency than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and double the efficiency of the RTX 1080 Ti. It is primarily similar to the RTX 3090, with much less VRAM being the one vital distinction—and the value.
The RTX 3080 Ti has 12GB of GDDR6X reminiscence at 19 Gbps and makes use of a 384-bit bus interface, giving a complete theoretical complete bandwidth of 912 GB/s—solely barely behind the RTX 3090’s 936.2 GB/s.
Elsewhere, the cardboard has a 350W TDP, an anticipated base clock of 1440 MHz/1665 MHz Increase, 320 TMUs, and 112 ROPs. As with the remainder of the buyer Ampere line, it is constructed on Samsung’s 8N course of expertise. Going off seems to be alone, you would possibly wrestle to inform the distinction between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti Founders Editions.

The RTX 3080 Ti launches on June 3 for $1,199. Anticipate customized fashions to reach quickly after. What we will additionally count on, sadly, is for it to undergo the identical availability and scalping points as each different graphics card proper now.
Nvidia additionally unveiled the RTX 3070 Ti through the keynote, although it was a bit mild on specs. We do know the cardboard will characteristic 8GB of GDDR6X reminiscence (the usual RTX 3070 has 8GB of GDRR6), 6144 CUDA cores, and use the total GA104 GPU core discovered within the vanilla model, using all 48 SMs. There’s additionally a 256-bit bus interface (608.3 GB/s bandwidth), and the bottom clock is predicted to be 1575 MHz with a 1770 MHz enhance.
Nvidia says the RTX 3070 Ti will supply a 50% efficiency enhance in comparison with the RTX 2070 Tremendous and a 20% enchancment over the RTX 3070.
The RTX 3070 Ti will probably be accessible on June 10, beginning at $599. The identical availability/worth caveats because the RTX 3080 Ti apply. You’ll be able to watch Nvidia’s whole keynote proper right here.
