Gigabyte prepares to release several different SKUs of GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB
We previously reported that Nvidia was allegedly planning to release GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB and GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB on January 11, 2022. Gigabyte has now filed an SKU list of several yet unreleased versions of RTX 30 series GPUs with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). This filing hints that the launch of the RTX 3080 12 GB and the RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB is just around the corner.
The news comes to us by way of VideoCardz. According to the SKU list, Gigabyte has, at the very least, 10 different versions of RX 3080 12 GB in the pipeline. If you aren’t familiar with the RTX 3080 12 GB, the card is meant to replace the current RTX 3080 10 GB. But aside from the increased 12 GB of VRAM and a wider 384-bit bus, everything else is the same.
Furthermore, the filing by Gigabyte also indicates at least six variants of the new RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB. However, unlike the RTX 3080 12 GB, there is no AORUS Xtreme model for the RTX 3070 Ti. But you'll still be able to pick up the fairly high-end AORUS Master SKU for the RTX 3070 Ti.
Because this is just an EEC listing, there is no indication of if and when these cards will show up in the market. Similarly, we also don't have any pricing details.
