NVIDIA has officially announced two new addition to its GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards lineup, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. Both the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti has a rather interesting position in filling up the performance gap in the RTX 30 series graphics cards, so here are some of the information you need to know if you’re planning on getting one for yourself.
GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
|Model||GeForce RTX 3080 Ti||GeForce RTX 3090|
|GPU Boost Clock||1.67 GHz||1.70 GHz|
|Memory||12GB GDDR6X||24GB GDDR6X|
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the new flagship in the RTX 30 series graphics cards lineup. Positioned in between the RTX 3080 and the big ferocious RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti appears to be a pretty interesting option for those who are looking for the sweet spot in between content creation and high-performance gaming.
Although the official specifications aren’t as crazy as the rumors suggest, it still gave us the impression that the RTX 3080 Ti is like a slightly nerfed RTX 3090 because of how similar the specifications are. The RTX 3080 Ti seems like a really interesting option for gamers and enthusiasts who are looking for performance beyond the RTX 3080, and we should be able to see the actual performance numbers soon after its official availability later on June 3, 2021.
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti
|Model||GeForce RTX 3070||GeForce RTX 3070 Ti||GeForce RTX 3080|
|GPU Boost Clock||1.73 GHz||1.77 GHz||1.71 GHz|
|Memory||8GB GDDR6||8GB GDDR6X||10GB GDDR6X|
Moving on to the RTX 3070 Ti, it is according to NVIDIA, a turbocharged version of its most popular GeForce RTX 3070 in the upper-mid segment. From the official specifications, we can see that the RTX 3070 Ti has a slightly higher CUDA cores count at 6144 but unlike the RTX 3070, it’s equipped with GDDR6X memory for a boost in performance. We’re unsure how much performance does the RTX 3070 Ti gained from the use of GDDR6X memory but NVIDIA did mention that it’s capable of 50% faster than the previous-gen RTX 2070 SUPER.
Apart from having more CUDA cores and GDDR6X memory for more performance, we can see that the Founders Edition comes with a different cooler design than what we’ve seen on the RTX 3070 Founders Edition. The price for the RTX 3070 Ti starts from $599 and will be available on a later date of June 10, 2020.
