NVIDIA is set to launch the long-awaited RTX 3080 Ti high-end GPU in May, according to multiple sources. As usual, specs and pricing information is floating around the internet and they might not be accurate but we have some convincing information. We can soon expect to see accurate specifications.
The RTX 3080 Ti is Based on The NVIDIA GA102-225 GPU
In a recent article of VideoCardz, the first photograph of the GA102-225 GPU which is this new graphics card will be based upon. The GA102-225 features 10240 CUDA cores paired with 12GB of GDDR6X memory.

In the test, the graphics card has not been recognized by the driver. We can assume that this was being tested earlier when NVIDIA introduced its crypto mining limiter on the drivers. NVIDIA is going to update its entire RTX 30 series GPUs which would feature both crypto mining limiter and ResizableBAR support. Before this was communicated to AIBs, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti qualification samples did not have the limiter. This was revealed by Igor’sLAB. There is no information on which qualification sample was tested by the leaker, or if this score is accurate, but it is possible that the mining performance here is not being affected by any crypto mining limiter.
According to the leaked screenshot, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti sample that’s tested was getting an impressive ETH mining hash rate of 118.9 Mh/s. It is to be noted that the GPU was indeed overclocked for optimized mining performance. It is to be noticed that the first performance leak features mining performance which shows the demand for mining performance currently as mining has become very profitable.
This leak also reveals the GPU clock speeds of 1365 MHz base and 1665 MHz boost. Which is lower than both RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. The 12GB GDDR6X memory is seen to be ruining at 1188 MHz by default, which means it runs at 19 Gbps speed, just as the previous RTX 3080.
