The Videocardz site understands that a new variant of the RTX graphics card 3080 from Nvidia is reportedly in the works. This would be a version with a GA GPU 100 – 220 (against GA 102 – 150 for RTX 3080) and accompanied by 12 GB GDDR6X memory (instead of 10 GB) .
It could serve as a replacement for the original version which would then be terminated. The number of CUDA cores should not change but the addition of the amount of additional memory should impose a memory bus 384 – bit, which will ensure a larger bandwidth on this evolution.
The original RTX 3080
His announcement could be made in January 2022 alongside RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3070 Ti 16 Go and RTX 2060 12 Go already planned.
Videocardz note that this is starting to make a lot of references around the GA GPU 100 and that Nvidia seems to favor memory improvements to develop its RTX range 30.
In another genre, it is again what estion of a RTX 3050 series for desktop PC. The kopite7kimi leaker thus evokes a RTX 2060 Ti with GPU GA 106 – 107 – A1 accompanied by 6 to 10 Go of GDDR6 memory and a RTX 2060 introducing a GA GPU 107 – 350 – A1 with 4 to 8 GB of memory.
Lack of launch window or even spotted SKUs, this is still a matter of speculation. Only RTX 2060 and RTX 3050 Ti mobile versions are available from Nvidia currently.
