NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti specifications leak again, as do supposed launch dates
Over the past few months, there have been many rumours and leaks about NVIDIA launching a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Now, Videocardz claims to have received information from board partners about both cards, including their proposed launch dates.
Videocardz expects the RTX 3080 Ti to be on shelves by mid-April, as we reported earlier this month. Additionally, the card is still believed to have 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM, but this has been rumoured since at least February. The website adds that NVIDIA has equipped the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with a GA102-225 GPU, putting it closer in name to the GeForce RTX 3080 (GA102-200) than the GeForce RTX 3090 (GA102-300).
However, the GA102-225 is thought to be only marginally worse than the GA102-300, such as 10,240 CUDA cores instead of 10,496 and 80 RT cores compared to 82 cores, for example. Moreover, @kopite7kimi asserts that the RTX 3080 Ti will run at up to 1,665 MHz, just 30 MHz short of the GeForce RTX 3090.
Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti should be found in stores from the end of May. NVIDIA is supposedly sticking with 8 GB of VRAM, but it will be GDDR6X rather than the GDDR6 used in the GeForce RTX 3070. The RTX 3070 Ti will use NVIDIA's GA104-400 GPU too, which Videocardz believes has 6,144 CUDA cores, 48 RT cores and 192 Tensor cores.
