The next generation of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be a huge step forward in terms of performance if the leaked specifications are true. In a tweet now deleted by "Chiakokhua", known for predicting the next steps for the tech giants, he announced that the NVIDIA Ampere range will provide twice the number of CUDA and Tensor cores of its predecessor and quadruple RT cores.
Chiakokhua has a long history of sharing leaks in the tech community. In a recent tweet, he touted NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as an absolutely mind-blowing graphics card, with specs that go beyond anything previous rumors have claimed.
The predecessor of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, contains 4352 CUDA cores, 544 tensor cores and 68 RT cores. It also features low-power clocks on the Turing GPU, with NVIDIA specifications requiring a boost clock at 1545 MHz. According to Chiakokhua, the GeForce RTX 3080 specifications will be sensational.
With up to 8192 CUDA cores, 256 RT cores and up to 1024 Tensor cores, the next RTX 3080 graphics card will offer you almost double the CUDA and Tensor cores of the 2080 Ti, facilitating the use of DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games and also in overcoming the bottleneck of the tensor cores previously observed on the NVIDIA Turing Rate Cards.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be equipped with 16 Gbps VRAM GDDR6 and 1750 MHz clock boost, a significant upgrade from the RTX 2080's 1545 MHz boost clock.
It seems that Nvidia Ampere graphics cards will start to be launched in the third quarter of 2020, as aftermarket graphics card manufacturers will want to empty stocks to make room for their new offerings. Reportedly, the launch of Nvidia Ampere will follow in the footsteps of the launch of Turing 2018, where the initial range will include RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070.
Here are some leaked specs from upcoming RTX NVIDIA cards, according to Guru3D
