Items tagged with geforce rtx 3080 ti

Late last year, when we first heard about the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, it was rumored that the card would debut with 20GB of GDDR6X memory. However, at launch, the card instead featured 12GB of GDDR6X compared to 10GB for the standard GeForce RTX 3080. Apparently, there was some truth to those early rumors, as someone in Russia obtained a Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC 20G that somehow made it onto the retail market. The card came from a retailer in St. Petersburg, Russia, with a price tag of 225,000 rubles (around $3,100) versus a $1,199 asking price for the standard GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. There are some interesting differences between the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti that officially... Read more...
Water-cooled graphics cards aren't exactly new. For years, enthusiasts who build their own custom liquid cooling loops have incorporated blocks onto their GPUs to keep the heat at bay without producing a ton of noise. In recent years, some manufacturers have released cards with their own closed-loop AIO coolers. Gigabyte has gone a totally different route, though: its AORUS gaming brand has announced the RTX 3080 Ti GAMING BOX. This all-in-one Thunderbolt enclosure holds inside it a water-cooled GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.  NVIDIA has supported external graphics cards on the Thunderbolt 3 bus for quite a while, and eGPUs are nothing new. They can give some serious gaming chops to a lightweight... Read more...
As we noted in our GeForce RTX 3080 Ti review, NVIDIA's second best graphics card for consumers (behind only the GeForce RTX 3090) is screaming fast, and more often than not it beats AMD's flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT. But what happens when you aggressively crank the clock speed? ASUS wants to help you find out with its new ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC Edition. That is a mouth full for sure, but we'll forgive the ultra-long product name because of the insane boost clocks. If sticking with Gaming mode, the card will boost up to 1,830MHz, and that jumps to 1,860MHz in OC mode. So when running at full throttle, the card boosts a hefty 195MHz higher than NVIDIA's Founders Edition model. ASUS... Read more...
NVIDIA is hoping that applying a hash rate limiter to some of its graphics cards will help get more units in the hands of actual PC gamers, rather than miners, who the company is serving with CMP HX parts. The newly minted GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is one of those cards. It is not a great option for mining Ethereum (relative to the card's cost), and it looks like the hash rate limiter nerfs a few other cryptocurrencies as well. Hopefully this attempt works out better than it did for the GeForce RTX 3060. NVIDIA attempted to gimp mining performance for that card as well, but the effort was quickly undone when a developer driver that removed the hash rate limiter found its way to the web. It did not...

Most of you reading this who tried to purchase a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card today inevitably struck out, because this is the 2021, the year of the GPU shortage (among other silicon-based hardware). Not everyone did, however. Apparently scalpers were successful once again, and it took all of two nanoseconds for them to begin selling the newly minted cards on eBay at prices well above the MSRP. We're not talking about just product listings appearing on eBay either, but product listings that have already sold. At the time of this writing, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is barely more than an hour old in the retail market, and there are already dozens of sales on eBay. Some of those can't be trusted,...

If you're on the lookout for one of the fastest graphics cards on the market, NVIDIA has you covered with the newly announced GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (be sure to check out the HotHardware review). The card offers intoxicating performance that comes within a few percentage points of the flagship GeForce RTX 3090. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti officially goes on sale on June 3rd, and Best Buy is one of the few retailers that will have Founders Edition cards available. The retailer already activated its product page for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition, and it's priced at the expected $1,199.99 -- $300 less than the GeForce RTX 3090. The product listing currently shows "Coming Soon," but we'd imagine... Read more...
During their Computex 2021 keynote, NVIDIA’s Jeff Fisher, GeForce Senior Vice President, and Manuvir Das, Head of Enterprise Computing, unveiled a number of new enterprise and consumer products, targeting multiple market segments. For all of the gamers though, it was Jeff Fisher’s official unveiling of the oft-rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti cards that most likely got your juices flowing. The new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the spiritual successor to the previous-gen flagship RTX 2080 Ti, while the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti builds upon the popular RTX 3070 with much faster memory and some goosed specifications that should boost performance quite a bit. We’re about a week away... Read more...
The cards have been leaked over and over for the past few months, but now they're official. We're, of course, talking about the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. These are the latest entries in NVIDIA's growing Ampere gaming family and promise to deliver even greater performance than their GeForce RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 counterparts. NVIDIA describes the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as "The new flagship gaming GPU of the GeForce RTX family," although we wonder where this leaves the GeForce RTX 3090. As such, the official specs match what's been roaming around in the recent rumor mill. That means 10,240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores, 320 texture units, and 112 ROPs. NVIDIA is quoting a maximum boost...

The launch of NVIDIA's latest Ampere graphics cards is right around the corner (tomorrow to be exact), which means that more information is leaking out about both the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The only logical price point for the former is $599, while the latter is likely to come in at $999. However, we all know that those prices are downright "fictional" given the ongoing global chip shortage and the sky-high demand for enthusiast graphics cards at the moment. Such is the case with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which has shown up for sale at UK retailer LambdaTek. The retailer lists several Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards, including the following: Gigabyte GeForce... Read more...
We're just days away from the official unveiling of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti, which means that leaks are occurring more frequently. Earlier this morning, we were made privy to the [alleged] full specifications of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. We're now learning about how its Ethereum mining performance has been nerfed compared to previous Ampere graphics cards. While the GeForce RTX 3090 currently sits at the top of the stack in NVIDIA's Ampere lineup with its 10,496 CUDA cores and 24GB GDDR6X memory, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is no slouch. According to GPU-Z, it features 10,240 CUDA cores, 12GB GDDR6X memory, a base clock of 1365MHz, and a boost clock of 1665MHz. As such, the GeForce... Read more...
Probably the worst kept secret in tech right now is the impending launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Heck, even NVIDIA can hardly contain its excitement about adding "Ti" models to the stack (there's also a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti in the works, according to rumors), as it teased a formal announcement for May 31. We might already know the full specifications of one of the cards, though. Previous leaks and rumors pegged the card as having 10,240 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR6X memory, and it seems those specifications are right on the money. We obviously will not know for sure until NVIDIA introduces the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti—Jensen Huang has been known to throw curve balls in the past—but... Read more...
Listen carefully, do you hear that? It's the growing whispers of "Ti" additions to NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series, some of which have already been listed in Razer desktop PC preorders. Those whispers have become a rumble, in other words, and as a launch date presumably nears, one of the upcoming GPUs seems to have made an appearance at Geekbench. I say "seems to" only because you never know when it comes to leaks and rumors, especially with NVIDIA—Jensen Huang is prone to last-minute surprises. Nevertheless, there have been leaks pointing to new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti models being on the horizon, and there is a recent Geekbench entry that points to the former. Geekbench... Read more...
When it comes to the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, the proverbial cat is out of the bag. For the last week, it's been rumored that NVIDIA would launch its latest and greatest Ampere cards during a keynote event at [virtual] Computex 2021. Today, NVIDIA pretty much confirmed that information. The official NVIDIA GeForce Twitter account this morning tweeted "Get Ready" with a short teaser clip (which doesn't give us any glimpses of the cards, unfortunately). However, the clip confirms that the GeForce keynote will occur at 10 pm EST on May 31st and will be streamed live via YouTube and Twitch. Earlier this month, NVIDIA announced that its second revision of GeForce RTX 30 Series... Read more...
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti are perhaps two of the worst kept secrets in the gaming hardware realm. The two Ampere SKUs have been rumored for months, and recently, we've been able to pin down exact announcement and launch windows for both cards. Now, it looks as though Razer's Chinese arm has jumped the gun by making the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti available in its preconfigured desktop systems. Systems are currently available for preorder on Razer's official store on the Tmall e-commerce platform. The listings were first discovered by @harukaze5719 on Twitter. There are multiple configurations available, including an AMD Ryzen 9 5900X system with 16GB of DDR4-3200... Read more...
Earlier this week, we brought you the news that the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will likely be announced at Computex 2021 on May 31st. Given the lingering effects of COVID-19, the NVIDIA keynote will take place virtually, rather than being held in person. We now have new information regarding the rollout of the two new Ampere graphics cards. While both cards will be revealed on May 31st, their rollouts will be staggered by one week. The review embargo for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is alleged to lift on June 2nd, while cards will be available for sale the following day, June 3rd. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti review embargo is rumored to lift on June 9th, with an on-sale date... Read more...
Rumors have been swirling around the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti for weeks. Although we have a good idea of what to expect from these gaming cards, the official handoff from NVIDIA will likely take place later this month at Computex 2021. NVIDIA today announced that it would hold a digital keynote event on May 31st at 10:00 PM PDT. The executive keynote is entitled "The Transformational Power of Accelerated Computing, From Gaming to the Enterprise Data Center" and will be spearheaded by Jeff Fisher and Manuvir Das. Fisher's presence is the most critical for the enthusiast community, as he is the Senior Vice President for NVIDIA's GeForce unit. In other words, Fisher the perfect... Read more...
It's no secret that NVIDIA is on the verge of releasing the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Despite the continued supply issues with both non-Ti versions of these cards, NVIDIA’s performance train must keep moving. However, it looks as though MSI jumped the gun a bit earlier today when it updated its website to include a product category for its upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card family. When visiting MSI's website, you can navigate to Products --> Graphics Cards --> NVIDIA GPU to see a listing of all its available NVIDIA-based graphics cards. You can filter your search based on the GPU, and this is where MSI jumped the gun by including a filter for the GeForce... Read more...
In a deleted post on Reddit, a user shared a photo of multiple retail boxed MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards that a retailer in the UAE supposedly shared with them. NVIDIA has not yet announced the new SKU, but the leaks and rumors are piled up a mile high at this point, leaving little doubt that a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch is imminent. We still do not know with 100 percent certainty what the specifications will be and how pricing will shake out. Unofficially, the new SKU is expected to feature 10,240 CUDA cores and 12GB of GDDR6X memory tied to a fat 384-bit bus, the same bus width as found on the GeForce RTX 3090. It's also said the Ti variant of the 3080 will have a 1,396MHz base clock... Read more...
It seems you will have to wait a little bit longer to not be able to buy an upcoming Ti variant of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 and 3070 graphics cards. Rumor has it NVIDIA pushed back the launch of both cards. It's only a delay of around a couple of weeks, and for what reason, only NVIDIA knows. Not that it really matters in the grand scheme of things. Why is that? Well, we're certainly looking forward to NVIDIA fleshing out its Ampere lineup with faster versions of its existing cards, stamped with the "Ti" moniker. But the landscape being what it is right now—silicon shortage, scalpers and bots, cryptocurrency mining—most gamers inevitably will strike out trying to buy one, like every... Read more...
Let's face it, suggested retail pricing on graphics cards is largely academic, because any available inventory sells out in nanoseconds anyway. Scalpers then hawk them on eBay and Craigslist for jacked up prices. Be that as it may, every SKU still gets an MSRP, and that includes NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. We don't have any official word on what that will be, but some early retail listings make it clear the Ti variant is going to be expensive. Rumor has it the card will launch at $999, same as AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT. That at least seems plausible, considering NVIDIA's flagship GeForce RTX 3090 carries a $1,499 MSRP. Here's how it would fit into the MSRP hierarchy, if that ends up... Read more...
The evidence is starting to mount that NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will soon be upon us. Earlier this month, we saw a shipment of MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC cards, and last week, the card was listed for preorder at a Polish electronics retailer. Now, yet another MSI card is basking in the limelight. Witness the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM X, which was spied in its retail box before launch. As with previous SUPRIM X releases, this will represent the flagship of MSI's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti family. SUPRIM X cards feature a TRI FROZR 2S thermal design with TORX Fan 4.0, precision machined heat pipes, a copper baseplate, dual BIOS, Mystic Light RGB controls, and enhanced boost speeds compared...

In recent days, we've heard increasing rumors that NVIDIA will release a new revision GeForce RTX 30 Series "GAxx2" GPUs that feature an enhanced cryptocurrency mining limiter. Today with the release of the GeForce 466.24 driver, NVIDIA confirmed those rumors surrounding a mid-May launch. If you look at the release notes for the GeForce 466.24 driver, you'll find the following passage: "This driver updates the hash limiter for the GeForce RTX 3060 12GB and is required for product shipped starting mid-May." The folks at VideoCardz dug deeper into the new driver and discovered that the latest revision of the GeForce RTX 3060, which will carry the GA106-302 GPU, has a unique Device ID. While the...
