Last week there was some encouraging news regarding the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. Then it was said about a price of $ 1,000 – despite the fact that in terms of characteristics (unless it concerns the amount of memory) it will not differ much from the older GeForce RTX 3090. But now the news is not so rosy: the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be more expensive.
It should be noted right away that the Chinese resource broadcasts data from a very reliable source – in the past, it turned out to be right more than once about the cost of new models of video cards and the discontinuation of old ones. So, according to new data, in China, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will cost exactly $ 1230.
That is, the recommended retail price maybe $ 1,199, and the real one, given the current deficit, will definitely exceed $ 1,500, even despite the presence of hardware protection against mining. In general, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is still attractive on paper, but not as good as last week with the previously promised price.
A new source confirms the use of a GA102-202 / 302 GPU with hardware protection against mining and 10,240 CUDA cores in the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, as well as the presence of 12 GB of memory with a 384-bit memory bus.
