Nvidia's may be preparing an RTX 3080 Ti to combat the Radeon RX 6000 series.

A 12GB graphics card between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090

Nvidia's may be preparing an RTX 3080 Ti to combat the Radeon RX 6000 series.

Rumour has it that Nvidia plans to launch a new graphics card called the RTX 3080 Ti, a new GPU which will sit in-between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 with 12GB of VRAM and 9984 CUDA cores. This information comes from @kopite7kimi on Twitter. 

This new graphics card is designed to combat AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series, offering more performance than Nvidia's RTX 3080 and lower pricing than the company's 24GB RTX 3090. Given the small performance gap between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, Nvidia's RTX 3080 Ti is expected to perform very similarly to an RTX 3090, as it only features 512 fewer CUDA cores. 

Nvidia's RTX 3080 Ti is expected to offer users 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM over a 384-bit memory bus, allowing Nvidia to deliver much lower retail pricing than its RTX 3090. 

It is possible that these RTX 3080 Ti specifications were previously considered by Nvidia but were later abandoned in favour of their RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 designs. That said, Nvidia may decide to utilise this design should AMD's RDNA 2 powered RX 6000 series give Nvidia's Ampere lineup stronger than expected competition.

Nvidia preparing anything new is currently pointless, the cards they have already released are impossible to get.Quote

Sure, but unless AMD come up with a compelling alternative to the 3080, these are unlikely to appear until current 3080 supply issues are resolved sometime in (hopefully) Q1 2021.Quote

Yeah, it would be really silly of Nvidia to release a 3080Ti now when so few can get a 3080 and the 3090 has such high profit margins.Quote

I hope this isn’t true.

Given that Scan, a single UK etailer has £3Million worth of 3080 and 3090 backorders awaiting fulfilment, if they were to divulge this now it would not only be stupid, but it’d also be a slap in the faces of thousands of customers who are already putting up with a ridiculous wait.

Nvidia have really dropped the ball on this. It’s great for them from a sales perspective but it’s really poor for a customer service and buying experience.Quote

Well on the plus side if it's a pre order they can simply cancel it and pre order the more expensive card.

The slap in the face will be for users who already have one I guess. And have passed the return window.

That said, I doubt it will be much faster than the 3080 because the 3090 is a tiny bit out ahead any way. So you would literally be paying for VRAM, and I reckon it would be best just to hold tight and wait for next gen. 10gb may just be enough to last until then.

Of course the ultimate slap in the face with a mouthful of gob would be if they ditch Samsung and go TSMC, and then the driver support fell off a cliff for the Samsung GPUs.Quote
