Rumor: Nvidia is expected to release a number of new graphics cards, including an upgraded RTX 3080, RTX 3070 Ti, and RTX 2060.
What should Nvidia do to help people who cannot afford or locate its products, given the scarcity of chips that causes so many problems for those looking to update their graphics cards? Maybe he should focus on making his current low to mid level offerings? According to reports, AMD will introduce a plethora of new Ampere cards, ranging from the RTX 3050 to the RTX 3090 Ti.
It’s unclear whether the new RTX 3080 will carry the Super or Ti moniker, although the former seems more likely given that there is already an RTX 3080 Ti that uses the GA102-250 GPU. As with previous Super cards, we can expect a performance boost of around 5-10% over the standard RTX 3080.
The rumors come from VideoCardz and leaker @ kopite7kimi, so take them with the usual dose of salt. The first is for a new version of the RTX 3080 that will use the GA102-220 GPU, come with 12GB of GDDR6X memory, and use a 384-bit memory bus, perhaps suggesting that the vanilla RTX 3080 with its 10GB of VRAM will be discontinued. . .
Another rumor claims that an RTX 3050 Ti desktop is in the works with a GA106-150-A1 GPU. It will feature 3,072 FP32 cores and 6GB or 12GB of GDDR6 with a 192-bit bus interface, making it significantly more powerful than the laptop version. Kopite7kimi also believes there will be a non-Ti version that uses the GA107-350-A1 GPU (2,304 FP32 cores) and a 90W TGP.
After a brief period of falling prices, the latest graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD have been on the rise since early August. In the case of Team Red, its RDNA 2 Series now exceeds 83% of MSRP on average.
these are all rumors, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see Nvidia announce a slew of new SKUs as part of a mid-life refresh for Ampere in January. But consumers frustrated with high prices and near zero availability are unlikely to be thrilled with the company complicating its lineup further with a series of new cards that offer a bit more memory / performance. And we’re still going to struggle to find them, anyway.
