Nvidia just revealed GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3090 Ti At its CES 2022 keynote last week, but that wasn’t all the company’s sleeve. On Tuesday morning, Nvidia quietly and surprisingly launched the new 12GB version of the GeForce RTX 3080 which solves our biggest (albeit small) problem. Stellar graphics card.
10GB of VRAM Original RTX 3080 There was a lack of games outside the gate Doomsday With each graphics knob cranked in 4K resolution pre-squeeze a tremendous amount of memory. This may not be something you have to worry about quickly in most games, but the new version’s 12GB GDDR6X completely eliminates any potential worries. Nvidia has expanded the memory bus width from 320-bit to 384-bit in this model, which helps to increase the overall memory bandwidth to 912GB / s, up from the original 760GB / s.
Nvidia also tweaked the GPU configuration of the new 12GB RTX 3080, bumping up the CUDA graphics core count from the original 8704 to 8960 now. That, combined with the upgraded memory, should make the 12GB RTX 3080 a little faster than the original, although we have Nvidia tweaking this card with a slightly different name (like the RTX 3080 Super) for small-but-key GPU tweaks.
Don’t try to find the installer version of this graphics card. Nvidia asked PCWorld to contact board vendors (such as EVGA, Asus, MSI, And so on) For more product information – including pricing. Yes, Nvidia didn’t even slap the official MSRP on this bad guy. Gulp. The original 10GB version is clearly retailed for $ 700 but is currently impossible to find in traditional stores, and is going for it. E 1,500 to $ 2000-plus on eBay Depends on the model. Thanks to the lack of running GPUs, don’t expect this upgrade to be cheap.
Update: Yes, these are not cheap. EVGA standard 10GB RTX 3080 XC Ultra Gaming Model Cost $ 840 on the company’s website. The 12GB RTX 3080 XC Ultra Gaming Cost 1,250 a $ 410 markup, and even more than the non-Ultra version of Step-Up RTX 3080 Ti XC Gaming, Which costs 1210. Well, if any of them were in stock, that’s it. Given that mining desirability is largely driven by memory bandwidth, this is not surprising, though.
Still, most GPUs are better than low GPUs. You may not have missed the launch of the 12GB RTX 3080 if you hadn’t noticed – Nvidia didn’t release any announcements or blog posts, it just quietly updated. RTX 3080 Family Specific Page And the mention of GPU slipped in its new driver release notes – but here it is. We will try to get our hands on the test.
