According to recent rumors, NVIDIA’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card could quickly disappear in just a month from now.
As reported by ChannelGate (discovered by MyDrivers), the RTX 3080 Ti will go on sale in mid-April. April claims it’s time to launch, according to recent rumors we’ve heard about the 3080 Ti, and this new speculation supports everything the previous rumors have claimed.
That said, I doubt that the RTX 3080 Ti will be loaded with 20 GB of VRAM. It is possible that it has been widespread in the GPU vine in the past. Now it’s possible that your graphics card will run with 12 GB of memory loadout (a pinch of seasoning). It’s all about this, of course, and actually the expected release date.)
The 3080 Ti is also expected to run with slightly fewer CUDA cores under the latest rumors, and Nvidia plans to equip the GPU with 10,240 rather than the previously rumored 10,496 cores (again, well-known hardware leaker @kopite7kimi on Twitter. Insisted, in the past). And once again, this new rumor repeats the claim that a 12GB GDDR6X VRAM configuration points to a 384 bit memory bus for the incoming 3080 Ti variant.
If time goes by and those mid-April dates prove to be money, we wouldn’t be able to wait long to see the truth of the matter. In fact, as the launch gets this close, you can imagine that sooner or later you will hear more information from the rumor factory.
Cryptonight for miners?
ChannelGate also claims that Nvidia plans to limit the crypto mining capabilities of the new GPUs. This is certainly a possibility, and once again the move @kopite7kimi believes will happen, broadcast that comment on Twitter a week ago. When this mining limiter arrives, it is expected to apply to the 3070 Ti as well, so all future GPUs from Nvidia may be limited in this way.
The recently released RTX 3060 graphics card came with a mining nerf, but there are obviously difficult problems in applying these restrictions, and some Chinese cryptocurrency miners are already using custom mods to bypass Nvidia’s restrictions. It is known (not to mention that there may be legal issues). This anti-mining initiative).
