MSI slides confirm GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB and RTX 3070 Ti 8GB SUPRIM cards’ existence
New slides from MSI have confirmed the existence of the much-rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti GPUs, with MSI slated to unveil their SUPRIM version of the cards.
On top of revealing the new GPUs ahead of NVIDIA’s official announcement, the slides also revealed the amount of VRAM of the GPUs as well as the customizations that MSI will be applying to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM.
The MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SUPRIM will arrive with 12GB VRAM, while the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti SUPRIM will reportedly pack 8GB VRAM. MSI didn’t reveal the memory type though, so we aren’t sure if NVIDIA will be going with GDDR6X or GDDR6 for these Ti cards.
Previous rumors have hinted at the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti packing 10240 CUDA cores, just like the GeForce RTX 3090, but with half the memory, and it appears that the latter half is confirmed. Meanwhile the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is slated to offer the full GA104 GPU, which is currently marketed as the GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU.
Aside from offering an upgrade of sorts, the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti are also expected to come with a hashrate limiter, which will lower their appeal to miners. Hopefully, that will mean gamers can actually get the cards, and I guess NVIDIA also hopes that it will help push sales towards their NVIDIA CMP cards.
Both of these new GPUs are expected to be announced on 29th May, with them being available to buy about a week later in June.
Pokdepinion: Given how much the SRPs for the current crop of GeForce RTX 30 series cards have risen from their initial launch pricing, I am quite curious how will NVIDIA position the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti…
