Will this be the world's fastest RTX 2080 Ti?

MSI's RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Z Trio is the first GPU to offer 16Gbps memory

MSI has added to its website what could be its most powerful RTX 2080 Ti graphics card to date, delivering gamers 16Gbps GDDR6 memory, an industry first, offering users more than 14% more memory bandwidth than before. This graphics card is MSI's RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Z Trio. This GPU listing was first spotted by Videocardz

Today, several things can limit GPU performance, be it memory bandwidth, core clock speeds or the individual execution units which underly each graphical architecture. These limitations will change on a game-by-game basis and will vary across each section of a given product stack. In today's market, memory bandwidth can be a substantial limiting factor for specific hardware configurations. 

With Nvidia's GTX 1660 Super, all that Nvidia changed was the graphics card's memory configuration. GDDR5 was replaced with GDDR6, and with that change alone, Nvidia delivered GTX 1660 Ti performance levels with a graphics card with a significantly weaker GPU core in most modern games. On the high-end, this could also hold true with the RTX 2080 Ti, especially at ultra-high resolutions like 4K.  

Faster GDDR6 memory has the potential to deliver notable performance increases with Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti, making the move to 16Gbps GDDR6 memory a solid move for Nvidia. With the RTX 2080 Super, Nvidia delivered substantial performance increases by shifting to 15.5Gbps memory, and similar results could be achieved with MSI's RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Z Trio. 

While this isn't MSI's fastest RTX 2080 Ti in terms of core clock speed, MSI's faster memory speeds could deliver gamers a notable performance advantage in modern games. Even MSI's TX 2080 Ti Lighting Z ships with 14Gbps GDDR6 memory modules.

Can't literally all 2080 Ti's have the memory OC'd to this and beyond anyway? Last minute cash grab before the release of new cards?Quote

No, not all of them can do that. These are 16 Gbps rated chips. There's a reason why most things on the market use 14Gbps memory.

The only other GPU to use 16 Gbps modules in the RTX 2080 Super, which then locks these chips to 15.5 Gbps because of potential board-related interference issues.

I'm sure most RTX 2080 Ti GPUs will support memory clocks to a certain extent, but not to 16Gbps.

I remember that a group of modders had to transplant chips from an RTX 2080 Super to get 16 Gbps from an RTX 2080 Ti. (found the link)

Also, I'm not sure if this can be called a "last-minute" cash grab when future RTX series graphics cards appear to be around 6 months away, if not longer.Quote

Pretty sure most 2080Ti cards with Samsung memory will hit or get very close to 16Gbps.

Maybe not last minute but certainly stretching out (or eking) out the performance haha.Quote

If Nvidia won't make an RTX 2080 Ti Super, MSI might as well make an alternative.Quote

Isn't that technically the titan?

Either way I'm surprised no-one had done it before.Quote
