Rumoured RTX 3080 Ti benchmarks place the GPU extremely close to Nvidia's RTX 3090

Will the RTX 3080 Ti make the RTX 3090 obsolete?



Read more about these alleged RTX 3080 Ti 20GB benchmarks.

Come on WYP, I mean what is the point of copy pasting this article which has been doing the rounds since yesterday. Just look at the memory capacity the 0 is overlapping the 4. Are you really that short of clicks around here ?

For people like me who use this forum as their main source. I hadn't seen this elsewhere.

Why be so rude? Totally unnecessary post.

who cares at this point... the shelves are empty and available! 3060 TI cards cost near to 1000 euro.

Don't worry, noone will be able to buy it, so let's better talk about the weather then.

It's a blurry image that was taken from an online video which was itself taken from a camera pointed at a screen.

I have since double-checked, and other sources are using a similar image. On Videocardz they used a less blurry and lacks the overlap that you are talking about.

For using their image, I will link to Videocardz's article. https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-g...legedly-tested



As mentioned in the article, any RTX 3080 Ti/Super graphics card will offer performance that is very close to the RTX 3090. I believe that there are aspects of this article/rumour that will remain relevant even if the source turns out to be false.

I have also stated in the article that these results are suspect and that they could easily be fabricated.

TBH I don't even know why I am responding to this comment. These are alleged benchmarks that even I said were suspect. Regardless, I feel that the results shown are pretty much what I'd expect from any RTX 3080 Ti or Super series GPU, so I think this is worth talking about.

A graphics card like the one alleged in this case would make the RTX 3090 almost pointless, as would a standard RTX 3080 with a 20GB frame buffer.

As a side note folks, please try to be constructive with criticism. Feel free to criticise or question my work as much as you want, but I don't want to be verbally attacked here.

Didn't mean to sound rude, but gotta admit that due to the lack of real news nowadays all I see on my news feed is copy paste from some obscure source.

Another example of who keeps popping up on my feed is Toms Hardware, they are taking months old articles and republishing them with more recent dates, google and all the other news gathers take it as new news and push them out with todays headlines.

Good job I use adblock so they aint getting no pennies from my clicks.

I believe that after all the 3000 series "unavailability" issues resolve themselves later this year, we may look back to the excellent marketing job NVIDIA has played on us. I personally would almost call it criminal towards the enthusiasts market. But in the end we all have to realize it's all about the money and shareholder pockets. They always come first. Huang has done very well after earning his Master's degree from Stanford University. Sincere congratulations to a USA Immigrant. After Stanford he took a stint working for AMD in a 'key executive chip design position" and getting even smarter. Now at NVIDIA Huang is drawing down an annual salary of USD$11 million plus big stock options. He is a bilionare 6-8 times over. What's next? What to do with his USD$40 billion purchase of ARM.

As to the RTX 3080ti I think that many enthusiasts with deep pockets will wait for the extra 20GB to essentially future-proofing their new GPU. Let's face it if one can easily afford to buy a base RTX 3080 in the first place what are a few or even €300 more? As to the RTX 3090 becoming obsolete is not really the factor. Even today less than 0.2% of enthusiasts would probably buy it if available?
But a RTX 3080 with 20GB for less €€€ is a different drummer. Food for thought!

But do keep in mind that they will have been on the market for an entire year by that time and hence will already be an year old tech. Considering how fast the technology industry moves, an GPU generation has about 2-3 years before a new generation comes out.

Just looking at the owners threads on OcUK the 3090 is outselling the 3080, some of those enthusiasts even have 2.
