The GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB will be an enthusiast-class graphics card by NVIDIA, that is expected to launch in January 2022. Built on the 8 nm process, and based on the GA102 graphics processor, in its GA102-220-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12 Ultimate. This ensures that all modern games will run on GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB. Additionally, the DirectX 12 Ultimate capability guarantees support for hardware-raytracing, variable-rate shading and more, in upcoming video games. The GA102 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 628 mm² and 28,300 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which uses the same GPU but has all 10752 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB to reach the product's target shader count. It features 8704 shading units, 272 texture mapping units, and 96 ROPs. Also included are 272 tensor cores which help improve the speed of machine learning applications. The card also has 68 raytracing acceleration cores. NVIDIA has paired 12 GB GDDR6X memory with the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1425 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1710 MHz, memory is running at 1188 MHz (19 Gbps effective).
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB draws power from 1x 12-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 320 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x HDMI, 3x DisplayPort. GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface. The card's dimensions are 285 mm x 112 mm x 40 mm, and it features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch will be 799 US Dollars.
