NVIDIA to announce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti at Computex 2021

It seems NVIDIA is getting ready to finally unveil and launch their two long-awaited “Ti” refreshes of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070. According to Wccftech, the RTX 3080 Ti should be on shelf by June 3rd, followed by the RTX 3070 Ti on June 10th. That’s just two and three weeks from now. The non-disclosure agreement on reviews should expire a day before launch, for both of these cards respectively.

Especially the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti had been shrouded in mystery for a long time, but seems to be nearing now. NVIDIA had “not felt the need” to launch it soon, seeing how popular their cards were at the end of 2020. Granted: since then, almost all RTX 3000 cards have been scalped to death.

The aforementioned availability dates are still subject to change, but early June is what NVIDIA is aiming for now. With these launches closing in, it seems very likely that NVIDIA will reveal both cards at their first possible keynote. That would be the digital presentation that is scheduled for May 31st, at Computex 2021.

Possible specifications of RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti

Recent leaks and market certifications seem to strongly hint at the 12 GB of GDDR6X memory for the RTX 3080 Ti. Earlier, it was expected to come with 20 GB, but NVIDIA seemed to have backed that down. The RTX 3070 Ti will probably have the same volume of VRAM as its predecessor, but opts for GDDR6X modules, instead of “regular” GDDR6.

When it comes to overall performance, the Ti refreshes should be way more effective than their non-Ti counterparts. It seems the RTX 3070 Ti will run on 6144 CUDA cores, whereas the RTX 3080 Ti takes it up to a whopping 10240 cores. This is only two CUDA cores less than the RTX 3090, which is NVIDIA’s most powerful gaming card yet.

NVIDIA has yet to speak publicly on the existence of these cards, let alone their specifications. It’s highly likely these new GPUs will come with a hashing limit integrated, as the chip manufacturer is currently warding off scalpers and crypto miners from their GeForce line of products.
