Nine months ago, the graphics gard producer Nvidia introduced the newest RTX 3000 series. So far they offer several models including the 3060, 3070, 3080 and the 3090. Lately the brand has leaked their plans to introduce some Ti models of the new series.RTXGlamourshot

On July 10, 2021 at this year's Computex convention, NVIDIA has made the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti official. The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti is essentially the true successor to the RTX 2080 Ti and is based on the same GA102 GPU core as the RTX 3090.

This new graphics card comes with 80 streaming multiprocessors (instead of 82 with 10,240 CUDA cores) and can be compared to the big brother 3090. RTX
In addition to that, the card offers 320 tensor cores, 80 RT cores, and is clocked at 1,440 MHz base and can boost up to 1,665 MHz. NVIDIA has equipped the card with 12 GB of GDDR6X VRAM on a 384-bit wide bus, while stating this new masterpiece is capable of 34 shader TLFOPs, 67 RT TFLOPs, and 273 Tensor TFLOPs.

This results in 1.5x more power than the RTX 2080 Ti, which it rightfully replaces.

When it comes to the design, the RTX 3080 Ti looks pretty much identical to the RTX 3080 including the use of the 12-pin PCIe power connector, one HDMI 2.1-out, and three DisplayPort 1.4a-outs. That being said, the RTX 3080 Ti is rated at a 350 W TDP just like the RTX 3090, so it will be interesting to check out the cooling and noise levels of the card once we get our hands on a review sample.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launched at a starting price of US$1,199.

What are your thoughts about this new graphics card? We look forward to your comments below.

Actually RTX 3080Ti is not worth against RTX3080. It's about 12% faster with almost double the MSRP.

But the problem is that you can't find RTX3080 at MSRP. In my country the lowest for an RTX3080 in stock is 1.800 Euros, where the RTX3080Ti is selling for 1.700 Euros. Prices include taxes.

And here's a small bit of info, its LHR (Low Hash Rate), so if you wanna do a little mining on the side, you're fresh outta luck.

Unfortunately, with the GPU shortages, MSRP is meaningless. But even at MSRP, $1,200 is still too high. Only 2 generations ago, the 1080ti had an MSRP of $699. This is what happens when you have no meaningful competition.

Thankfully, AMD is gaining ground on the GPU side of things so perhaps they can help keep NVidia honest.

That's a reason why I am with a GTX 1070. An excellent card, no rush to upgrade.

Yep, I’ll be sticking with my GPU for now too.
