Nvidia's reportedly planning to launch an RTX 3080 Ti graphics card in January 2021

Is this Nvidia's answer to the RX 6900 XT?


Read more about Nvidia's rumoured RTX 3080 Ti.

Not sure how the others feel about this, but I don't think this is necessarily an answer to AMD's lineup, because we've had an XX80 Ti for the last 4 generations at least iirc, so it was a pretty obvious thing to come.


Let's just hope they're not going to launch another Super lineup...

Ti is usually always an answer to AMD. Always.

780Ti because 290x.

980Ti because they thought Fury X would be better.

1080Ti because they were worried about Vega (they shouldn't have been....)

But yeah, usually Ti is always an answer. Last round? it was just a way to take the pee with their pricing.

It's the one they usually keep in the tank. I don't think so much that it is an answer for the 5900xt because they already have one. I just think it's a way of putting more VRAM on a card that could not have enough, and getting £300 more for it.

It's all about VRAM this one.

Do the 3090 and 3080 share the same chip? I'd be worried about availability if so. I'm also guessing the use of GDDR6 instead of X is to keep an artificial segmentation for the 3090 or is 6x in such a high demand they can't buy enough?
another £1000 card, part of me really thinks Nvidia is pushing these prices so high so they can push streaming services (their own and all others that are using Nvidia GPU's in their data centres) to generate more revenue in the long run

Well we don't know what's the hold-up with the 3000 series cards, could well be GDDR6X and not the GPU itself. Dropping to slower memory might result in a pretty reasonable price bump.


But it's all rumours, maybe next week "Jensen's Laptop" says that there never was a 3080 Ti to begin with.

It's the same chip. It's just been lazered off, dead parts removed and uses more power (the 3080) than it should. Obviously that doesn't mean it uses more power than the 3090, it just means that it was a rejected bin for the 3090. That is usually how they make up their ranges.

If you think these prices are high just wait until they return to TSMC and get a big lead again. Prepare the tissues, 'cause your eyes will water.

As for supply? the dies are in short supply as is the memory. Samsung's failure rate is very high. Whether than can be overcome? IDK. Covid hasn't helped any either.

Some of the problem is down to Nvidia insisting that partners buy a kit from them that includes the die and memory. IIRC they are the only ones being supplied GDDR6X ATM.

There were a couple of interesting articles over the past couple of days too.



Basically a couple of partners (who rename nameless, but will be in China I reckon) have come out and stated that if they made cards to Nvidia's MSRP they would go bankrupt. That, or have to cut the quality so much the cards would be awful.

It's a bit of an impasse. Nvidia want their margin, board partners are not going to make any money if they stick to them. So that is why the prices are higher.

This one was interesting too.



EVGA's high end very expensive card uses crap parts. This is an £800+ card, and short cuts and cheap outs were made. I would blame EVGA, but when you consider the video above I would say they didn't have a huge amount of choice.

Nvidia is expecting people to do their bidding whilst making no money, leaving it all for them.

Can see the 3090 going EOL and the Ampere Titan replacing it.

AMD will have an obvious answer to this a worse binned 6900

Yeah, I think so too. If a 3080Ti comes out at $1k with 20GB of VRAM, the fully unlocked core, and only a slightly cut back bus, I don't see where the 3090 would fit into that. Who would pay $500 for 18% more VRAM and 1-2% more performance? The fact that so few would pay $500 for such a meagre increase in specifications is going to annoy many, many 3090 investors. Or at least it's going to mire Nvidia's image. But I guess Nvidia has done it time and time again, and they keep getting away with it.

They could enable the Titan driver stack on the 3090, will be worth the 500$ to some people maybe:
