Users of a specialized forum report some information on three references attached to three models of Nvidia RTX 3080. They describe cards with between 10 GB and 24 GB of VRAM for the heaviest tasks. Graphics cards would be launched in September.
We’ve been talking about future Nvidia RTX 3080 cards for several months now – but it looks like the coronavirus crisis has meanwhile delayed Nvidia’s release schedule a bit. Now, from new info have just surfaced on the ChipHell Chinese language forum. The leaker wjm47196 learns that iThere will be no less than three models of Nvidia RTX 3080 and these cards will have a very muscular configuration.
The Nvidia RTX 3080s are said to be even more muscular than you think
Even more than other leaks suggested. While until now we thought that Nvidia would offer its cards in 10, 11 and 24 GB variants, this leak suggests that VRAM capacities will instead be 10, 20 and 24 GB. The three references would be attached to serial numbers PG132-10, PG132-20 and PG132-30. The PG132-10 would be the most powerful model – presumably a RTX 3080 Ti.
She would embark a GPU GA102-400 A1 (5376 CUDA cores, 384 bit memory bus, 816 Gb / s bandwidth, according to previous leaks) and 24 GB GDDR6 VRAM. A real monster that will easily take down the heaviest parallel tasks and may be suitable for those new to machine learning and other types of AI. The intermediate model, PG132-20 would have a GPU GA102-300 A1 (5248 CUDA cores, memory bus 352 bit, bandwidth of 924 GB / s, according to previous leaks).
Finally the third variant, probably the Basic RTX 3080 (PG132-30) would ship a GPU GA102-200 A1, with 4352 CUDA cores and 10 GB of GDDR6 VRAM (320 bit bus, 760 GB / s bandwidth). But that’s not the only news from this leak. Because the users of the ChipHell forum also confirm the release schedule. The first card to be released would be the mid-size RTX 3080 20 GB, at the very beginning of September.
News on the 3070 and 3060 is also surfacing
Nvidia to launch base RTX 3080 with 10GB in mid-September. TITAN will be launched at a later date without further details. Three other references are also listed on the forum. There is in particular a PG190-10 model which seems to point to an RTX 3060. But also two references attached to RTX 3070 cards (PG142-0 and PG142-10) with 8 and 16 GB of RAM.
Prices are also included. They would be the following:
- RTX 3080 Ti – $ 1,499
- 20GB RTX 3080 – $ 999
- RTX 3080 – $ 749
- RTX 3070 16GB – $ 699
- 8GB RTX 3070 – $ 549
However, these tariffs should be taken with even greater caution than the rest of this leak – given that thewe understand, from reading the forum, that they are actually more of an informed opinion only real news from a trusted source in the industry.
Nvidia has been teasing the arrival of its new graphics cards a few weeks ago. On August 10, the brand released a mysterious visual at the end of the article. We see what looks like a supernova in the making. Everything is accompanied by the mention “The #ULTIMATECOUNTDOWN 21 Days. 21 Years. “ which could be translated by “Ultimate countdown. 21 days. 21 years old “.
It seems that one can understand from these few words thatan event will be organized 21 days later – August 31, 2020. And that Nvidia has a lot in reserve, since what will be in question will be the consequence of 21 years in the industry … (since, moreover, the Nvidia GeForce account on Twitter reviews the innovations that have come out every year since 21 years old with one tweet per day).
