Nvidia launched the highly-rumored RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti throughout its Computex 2021 keynote. The RTX 3080 Ti is ready to launch on June 3 for $1,199, and the RTX 3070 Ti is scheduled to launch on June 10 for $599.
Each playing cards are based mostly on the similar Ampere structure as the RTX 3080 and 3070, however they arrive with further cores and video reminiscence, amongst different enhancements.
|RTX 3080 Ti||RTX 3070 Ti|
|Interface||PCIe 4.0||PCIe 4.0|
|Reminiscence||12GB GDDR6X||8GB GDDR6X|
The RTX 3080 Ti will dethrone the RTX 3080 as Nvidia’s flagship GPU. Over the base mannequin, the RTX 3080 Ti exhibits enhancements throughout the board. It comes with 1,536 extra CUDA cores, 48 extra Tensor cores, 12 extra RT cores, and an additional 2GB of GDDR6X reminiscence.
Wanting video reminiscence, the RTX 3080 Ti is mainly an RTX 3090. It has almost an identical specs, together with the bigger reminiscence bus. The massive distinction is 12GB of VRAM on the 3080 Ti versus 24GB on the 3090. The additional VRAM on the 3090 isn’t at all times essential for gaming, so the 3080 Ti offers a pleasant center floor in Nvidia’s Ampere lineup for anybody in search of the greatest gaming efficiency with out overspending
The RTX 3070 Ti doesn’t present as massive of an enchancment, however it’s nonetheless a major step up from the normal RTX 3070. The up to date model comes with a further 256 CUDA cores, eight extra Tensor cores, and two extra RT cores. It comes with the similar 8GB of VRAM as the base mannequin, although the Ti model makes use of GDDR6X reminiscence, not GDDR6 reminiscence. That improves reminiscence bandwidth from 448GBps on the 3070 to 608GBps on the 3070 Ti.
Each playing cards function Nvidia’s new Lite Hash Charge (LHR) GPU. This new GPU core will restrict the Ethereum hash price, which ought to curb some demand from cryptocurrency miners. That mentioned, Nvidia’s new playing cards nonetheless come amid the worst GPU scarcity the market has seen in years.
The RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti look spectacular, as long as they carry out in addition to their specs recommend at launch. Would-be patrons might not be capable to discover one, although. Following earlier Nvidia launches, we count on the RTX 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti to promote out instantly at launch and keep out of inventory for fairly a while.
