Nvidia is expected to launch the RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti GPUs in June, but, according to a new leak coming from twitter user Japanese PC Mania, Team Green could soon launch other more powerful Ti models. Apparently, Zotac’s FireSotrm overclocking utility includes three references for unannounced RTX 3090 Ti models along with the upcoming RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti models.
The references come in the form of png file names found in the resource directory of the Zotac FireStorm utility. All the unreleased Ti model png files appear to be created on April 21 this year. While we have been hearing rumors regarding the RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti models ever since late 2020, this would be the first time we learn about a possible 3090 Ti SKU. Nvidia may be planning to release a full GA102 die with 10752 cores like the one found in the A6000 professional GPUs, as opposed to the 10496 cores already activated in the 3090 model. That is only a 2.5% increase in core count, probably 10% more memory bandwidth and slightly higher boost clocks with 25% higher TGP, possibly even some more VRAM. With these specs, estimated performance increase over an RTX 3090 FE hovers around 15-25%.
Alternatively, this could be one of those new SKUs rumored to be produced on the 7 nm nodes at TSMC, and Nvidia might turn it into a Titan model. In any case, the prices will no doubt be sky high, even more so now that scalping and crypto mining are causing so many problems.
