The Ti versions for Nvidia's mid-high and high-end GPUs usually arrive around 9 to 12 months after the launch of the original wave, but this time around, it seems like Nvidia is ready to launch the Ti version of the high-end card together with the regular versions. While the RTX 2080 is rumored to cost US$699 initially, the GTX 2080 Ti could get a US$1,000+ MSRP.

The latest rumors surrounding the much-anticipated release of the Turing gaming GPUs from Nvidia point out to a possible surprise reserved for the official announcement that should happen on August 20. If the estimated prices for the RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 models seems too low compared to the current gen prices, Nvidia’s plans are to launch an RTX 2080 Ti version for all those gamers looking for the ultimate gaming GPU. Since the RTX 2080 is supposed to be launched with a US$699 MSRP, the RTX 2080 Ti may very well cost north of US$1,000.

WCCFTech and TechPowerUp claim that the RTX 2080 Ti would be very similar to the Turing GPU found in the US$10,000 Quadro RTX 8000, featuring 4352 CUDA cores, 576 TENSOR cores, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs connected to a 352-bit memory bus sporting 11 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The GPU clock could be set between 1.35 and 1.55 GHz, while the boost clock may go as high as 1.73 GHz, judging by the Quadro RTX 6000/8000 specs. Moreover, the memory bandwidth is expected to reach 616 GB/s.

While sources like WCCFtech and TPU are sometimes inaccurate, Videocardz just unveiled that MSI is ready to launch an RTX 2080 Ti version with tri-fan design and RGB lights as part of its Gaming X Trio brand. Of course, no specs (apart form the 11 GB GDDR6 VRAM), no pricing and no launch date, but, since the images already got leaked, it is safe to assume that this card would be launched in September.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
