The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti appears by the dozen with 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM in new EEC submission; Gigabyte preparing to release a CMP 30HX mining card too
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has endured many false starts, but the latest rumours are that NVIDIA will announce the card in May. Initially, NVIDIA was expected to equip the RTX 3080 Ti with a GA102-250 GPU that had 20 GB of VRAM. Gigabyte registered several RTX 3080 Ti SKUs to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) with 20 GB of VRAM, but NVIDIA has rebadged the GA102-250 as the GA102-300 for use in new RTX 3090 cards, instead.
Now, @KOMACHI_ENSAKA has spotted a new EEC submission made by Gigabyte that contains more RTX 3080 Ti SKUs. Specifically, Gigabyte has registered twelve models under the following product codes:
|Product code||Model number||Cooler type|
|GV-N308TAORUSX WB-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE WB||Waterblock|
|GV-N308TAORUSX W-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti AORUS XTREME WATERFORCE||AIO|
|GV-N308TAORUS X-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti AORUS XTREME||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TAORUS M-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti AORUS MASTER||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TGAMING OC-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GAMING OC||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TGAMING-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GAMING||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TVISION OC-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VISION OC||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TVISION-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti VISION||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TEAGLE OC-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti EAGLE OC||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TEAGLE-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti EAGLE||Triple fans|
|GV-N308TTURBO OC-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti TURBO OC||Blower|
|GV-N308TTURBO-12GD||Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti TURBO||Blower|
The listing does not guarantee that these models will come to market, as demonstrated by Gigabyte's previous EEC submission. In saying that, it effectively confirms that NVIDIA is working on an RTX 3080 Ti with 12 GB of VRAM. According to multiple sources, the RTX 3080 Ti uses the faster GDDR6X standard and has 10,240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores and a 1,665 MHz base clock. Unsurprisingly, these are all marginally worse than the RTX 3090's equivalent specifications.
Incidentally, Gigabyte's latest submission includes a reference to another NVIDIA card under the product code GV-N30HXD6-6G. As far as we can tell, this product code refers to the CMP 30HX, NVIDIA's entry-level crypto mining card. As we have discussed previously, the CMP 30 HX is a re-branded GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER. Earlier this month, a retailer started selling a Palit CMP 30HX, so it should come as no surprise to see other NVIDIA board partners gearing to do the same.
