NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at Computex this year, in June. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti replaces the RTX 3080 as NVIDIA's new flagship gaming product. The RTX 3090 is still positioned higher, but that SKU is more of a TITAN-like halo model, with its massive 24 GB VRAM favoring certain professional use-cases when paired with Studio drivers.
Based on the same 8 nm GA102 silicon as the RTX 3080, the new RTX 3080 Ti has 12 GB of memory, maxing out the 384-bit GDDR6X memory interface of the chip while packing more CUDA cores and other components—10,240 vs. 8,796, 320 TMUs, many Tensor cores, 80 RT cores, and 112 ROPs. The announcement of the RTX 3080 Ti and its sibling, the RTX 3070 Ti, may have been triggered by AMD's unexpected return to the high-end gaming graphics segment with its Big Navi Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, particularly the RX 6900 XT and RX 6800.
The GeForce Ampere graphics architecture debuts the 2nd generation of NVIDIA RTX, bringing real-time raytracing to gamers. It combines 3rd-generation Tensor cores that accelerate AI deep-learning neural nets DLSS leverages, second-generation RT cores that introduce more hardware-accelerated raytracing effects, and the new Ampere CUDA core that significantly increases performance over the previous-generation Turing.
The Phantom GS "Golden Sample" is Gainward's top model for the RTX 3080 Ti. It comes with adjustable RGB lighting and the ability to synchronize your motherboard's effects to the graphics cards. With three eight-pin power inputs, the card is ready for the toughest challenges. The cooling solution is a large triple-slot, triple-fan design. In terms of clock speeds, the Phantom GS offers a small factory overclock to 1725 MHz. Pricing isn't available from Gainward, but given current market conditions, we're expecting a price of around $1800.
