NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Landing in January at $999

According to the unknown manufacturer (AIB) based in Taiwan, NVIDIA is preparing to launch the new GeForce RTX 3000 series "Ampere" graphics card. As reported by the HKEPC website, the Santa Clara-based company is preparing to fill the gap between its top-end GeForce RTX 3090 and a bit slower RTX 3080 graphics card. The new product will be called GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. If you are wondering what the specification of the new graphics card will look like, you are in luck because the source has a few pieces of information. The new product will be based on GA102-250-KD-A1 GPU core, with a PG133-SKU15 PCB design scheme. The GPU will contain the same 10496 CUDA core configuration as the RTX 3090.

The only difference to the RTX 3090 will be a reduced GDDR6X amount of 20 GB. Along with the 20 GB of GDDR6X memory, the RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards will feature a 320-bit bus. The TGP of the card is limited to 320 Watts. The sources are reporting that the card will be launched sometime in January of 2021, and it will come at $999. This puts the price category of the RTX 3080 Ti in the same range as AMD's recently launched Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, so it will be interesting to see how these two products are competing.

Guess 4GB of VRAM costs $500 these days
It shows end user(s) clearly being ripped off. ..& on that note, any GFX card that cost 850$+ I want HBM2e.

EDIT: This will certainly force AMD to lower the price of they top end card, as this card clearly now looks the the better buy, even with a slightly more power requirement.

Far as I can see its still in there, as well as 'the new products'

The chinglish is strong in this one

Its pretty painful especially because this is from yet another half baked leak... Starting to become borderline sub-cancel worthy I kid you not. It feels like I'm funding clickbait. Its also not doing TPU trustworthiness and news vetting quality any favors.

This product was now announced, pre-announced and canceled three times and we still haven't got a release date. Are we that gullible?

Scalpers selling RTX 3090 for €2000 here. I guess 3080Ti's will go for €1500. :(
I'm sure all RX 6000 cards will be sold out as well.

I envy you. Around here, the distributor does... And that's an exVAT price for retailers...

If nvidia releases 3080 ti for 999 then amd need 6900 xtx for 1100 or 1200.

From the other aspect maybe wont release anything because 6900 xt performs overall better in games than 3090 and 3080 ti is weaker than 3090.

They don't really need it, he fact that this rumored part has come down a whopping $200 gen over gen is a huge win for most GPU suers & quite a repudiation to the Nvidia tax that JHH forced last gen!

Could AMD release some card on TSMC 5nm in early 2021?

Step 1. Don't buy scalper stuff.. tell your friends to don't buy scalper stuff
Step 2. Laugh at scalpers for wasting their money

Why rip? 3080 ti will be slower anyway. If these specifications are true.

The only difference to the RTX 3090 will be a reduced GDDR6X amount of 20 GB.
Actually, it's expected that the RTX 3080 Ti will also lack the NV-Link connector, which would be the only remaining "disadvantage" compared to the RTX 3090, if you can call it that. Also, in my opinion, the 3080 Ti 'killing' the 3090 is an overstatement, because Nvidia was never expecting large sales numbers on the 3090 - it isn't, and never was, the mainstream, high volume product. This is regardless of availability, as even if thousands upon thousands of 3070, 3080 and 3090 were available to buy right now, the 1500+$ is still severely prohibitive, plus the independent reviews have probably had a pretty negative impact on the desirability of the 3090, as it showed it offered pretty pathetic performance improvements over the 3080, while being 210% of the price, comparatively.

In reality, the 3090 is a pretty badly handled product, IMO. The product itself isn't 'bad', but how it was priced, marketed and positioned in the product stack made is seem just.. absurd. Considering the price increase, the 5-10% performance improvement is absolutely laughable, so you end up paying essentially just for the bonus 14 GB of GDDR6X, which will pay off for you in a gaming scenario... how? The 3090 should have never been marketed as a gaming card, especially with the 8K marketing gimmick, which is a total joke for multiple reasons, as proven by independent testing.

An RTX 3080 Ti would be a much more sensible product at $949-$999, but again, who cares what the specs or price is, if we are not going to be able to buy it for ~6 months after 'launch'??? :laugh:

Wouldnt be surprised if they do a 3090 Ti just to spite the 'other' department.

Too early to count price. There are a few different factors which may affect it.

By doing so they just cannibalized all of those 3080 10GBs on shelves

This gentleman knows what he is talking about.

Anyway people will buy 3090 because it is the strongest on nvidia side.
