Electronics company Asus accidentally leaked the existence of the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti, a suppressed version of the 3080 rumored to launch this coming February, after the Chinese New Year.
Two SKUs appeared on Asus’ website: ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O20G-GAMING and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-20G-GAMING. The former will probably be factory overclocked, and the latter will probably use reference clocks. Like previous rumors and leaks, the 3080 Ti will sit between 3080 and 3090 in terms of memory. The 3080 offers users 10 GB of GDDR6X RAM while the 3090 offers 24 GB. 3080 Ti will offer 20 GB.
At the moment, the prices for 3080 Ti are up in the air. Given that the 3080 is priced at $ 700 and the 3090 sells for $ 1
The Asus leak also revealed the existence of the rumored RTX 3060 12 GB, a direct competitor to AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT 12 GB. 3060 12 GB is expected to be launched in January.
In the fall, Nvidia introduced the GeForce RTX 3000 series, with the RTX 3080 gaining the most interest due to its ability to deliver 4K graphics for less than $ 1000. As a result, it has been difficult to find the GeForce RTX 3080, as gamers have snapped up the graphics card when it is in stock.
Here’s hoping the likely arrival of the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti soon provides another alternative.
