NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GA102-225 GPU Pictured and Detailed

The launch of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is upon us. The number of rumors circulating the web is getting greater and we have just received die pictures of the GA102 silicon and the specification of the specific SKU. Sources over at VideoCardz have provided the website with the first die picture of GA102-225 silicon, which powers the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Pictured below, it doesn't appear much different compared to the GA102-300 SKU found inside the RTX 3090 card, with the only obvious differentiator being the SKU ID. However, the difference only appears under the hood, with the GA102-225 SKU having 10240 CUDA cores instead of 10752 CUDA cores found inside GA102-300 of RTX 3090.

Paired with 12 GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit bus, the memory will have run around 19 Gbps speeds. That will result in a bandwidth of 912 GB/s. If you are wondering about the performance of the card, it should remain within a few percent of its bigger brother RTX 3090. We have the first leak showing Ethereum mining performance and the GA102-225 silicon achieved a mining hash rate of 118.9 Mh/s with some tuning. The memory was overclocked to 21.5 Gbps, while the GPU TDP was limited to 278 Watts. The leak shows that the card has managed to achieve a 1365 MHz base and 1665 MHz boost frequency. While we don't have the exact launch date, the supposed MSRP will be anywhere from $999 to $1099, assuming you can get it at all at any price.

I'm guessing they did not include the mining hardware limiter on this.

Whats the point of the useless ETH limiter anyway? All the miners did was went and mine something else. :roll:

118.9 Mh/s for 999 bucks? Nuff said, it's already gone.

To make Nvidia look good in front of it's shareholders and tech press. The reality is that Ngreedia LOVES "enterprise" miners. They (or their AIBs) sell them tons of "raw GPUs" and even help them with writting custom drivers/mining optimizations. It's hard to turn down when someone offers you 100 million bucks or more for GPUs without outputs, coolers and is willing to pay more than retail price for them on top of that. Plus there's no logistics and marketing expenses, no fidlling with large retailers demanding quantity discounts to be had... No ETH limiter for "big guys" from NGreedia :) NGreedia & AMD (to a lesser extend this time) are making a killing in this mining craze.

But how would they sell their much more expensive mining cards e-wastes?

I get it. These companies won't care who buys it as long as they get to profit from it.

Sold is sold, no matter who gets it. Any attempt to thwart mining is just a PR stunt to make you think they care.

Any card sold to miners, have a much bigger chance to come back as a RMA. So maybe they should care. Why do you think there's only a few months warrenty on true mining cards. Because alot of them die. A mining-card that survives, will perform 10-15% less than a non-mining card after 1-2 year (tested by TechSpot among others - boost clocks are simply lower)

Yeah going with Samsung paid off, even tho it's a worse process (hence cheaper too).
TSMC is on it's knees begging for mercy and AMD can't do anything about it. Steam HW Survey still has no sign of Radeon 6000 series. All Ampere cards are present and have been for a long time.

The fact that the one benchmark is for mining is telling. Even the leakers know what the bigger target market is

118 megahash doesn't seem all that great imo for a 3080 ti level card. I mean I think I read 6800 xt's get like 60 or 70... and they are like 1/3 1/4 the price of what this will be scalped for.

This is funny, leaked information about gpu and what specs will it have, but main commercial here is mining performance. Good luck for us to get this gpu.

GPU manufacturer loves selling their product. Holy shit did not see that one coming.

From what I heard they will put limiters on it to prevent mining. Don't know if it will be different than 3060.

The problem is that two 6800xts draw a lot more power than one of these.

Not that an ak47 would be useful inside a pc case... :D

so where do you go to preorder? I've been to hell and they said try Ebay... :p

That is actually a good thing if you think about it lol

Means GPUs are in higher demand than AK47s. :)

I'm going to buy one of these when they become available and reasonably priced. So 3-4 years from now. :laugh:

I was really lucky (actually I have a good supplier that I buy nearly all my expensive IT stuff from, so he treats me well), managed to get a Strix 3090 when they first came out for almost MSRP price (1,850 Euros). Now I see them being sold for 3,000 Euros (!!!) - and that is if you can find one in stock!!!

Still have my old Strix 2080ti gathering dust on the cupboard, but I ain't selling that either despite them currently being sold for 1,000 Euros in the second hand market (almost what I paid for it NEW)! I suspect that if something goes wrong with a 3000 series card (knock on wood) with the current supply issues they will rather give you your money back than a replacement card, so at least I have something to fall back on.
