COVID-19 has cancelled all the events where we could have heard more about the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti but latest reports claim that the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti will release before the end of August 2020.
That means that the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti could be announced at the Cologne Game Show which is scheduled to take place from August 25 to August 29. This is not surprising keeping in mind that the RTX 20 series was announced at the same show in 2018.
We can speculate that the Tesla and Quadro graphics cards are going to release before the consumer graphics cards. Even with that being the case, you can expect to get custom graphics cards from AIB partners by the end of September.
There are other events other than the Cologne Game Show in August as well. GDC is scheduled for August 4th and Hot Chips 2020 is scheduled for August 16th. So there are enough events for Nvidia to show off and talk about the upcoming Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti. While there is little that we know about the graphics card, it is expected that it is going to be 40% more powerful than the RTX 2080 Ti.
According to reports, the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti is going to feature 5376 CUDA Cores, 384bit bandwidth, 12GB of video memory. The RTX 3080 is expected to feature 3840 CUDA Cores, 320bit bandwidth, 10GB of video memory and the performance is going to be 10% higher than RTX 2080 Ti. While we have no information regarding the pricing of these graphics cards, it is easy to guess that they are not going to be cheap. I would not be surprised if these cards cost more than $500.
While reports and speculations are great, do take this information with a grain of salt. Whether or not Nvidia is going to announce these upcoming cards in August is something that only time can tell.
Let us know what you think about these upcoming Ampere cards and whether or not you are interested in getting one.
