The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is back and it could be launching soon with a 320 W TGP and 10 GB of GDDR6X VRAM
It has been a few days since @kopite7kimi mentioned that NVIDIA would be releasing a cutdown version of the RTX 3080 to combat AMD. Now, the same account has posted yet more information about what to expect from the card, although the release date and pricing remain unknown.
Videocardz believes that NVIDIA will call this card the RTX 3070 Ti, in lieu of the GA104-based one that it apparently cancelled earlier this month. According to @kopite7kimi, the reference board of the card will be the PG132 SKU 35, while its device ID will be 2207. Previously, the same account tweeted that NVIDIA will be basing the card on the GA102-150, a lesser version of the GA102-200 and GA102-300 that it uses in the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, respectively.
Nonetheless, the RTX 3070 Ti will have a 320 W TGP, along with 10 GB of GDDR6X VRAM - matching the RTX 3080. Additionally, the card will have a 320-bit memory bus, 7,424 CUDA cores, 232 Tensor cores and 58 RT cores. @kopite7kimi claims that NVIDIA has built the card to take on the Radeon RX 6800 XL, AMD's supposed entry-level graphics card that it is announcing on October 28. NVIDIA will release the RTX 3070 on October 29 too, so keep your eyes peeled for another RTX 30 series card appearing soon.
