Lots of NVIDIA rumors today! Twitter leaker Kopite7kimi, who posted accurate Ampere details months before the actual launch, claims NVIDIA has a new GA102 GPU variant. The post indicates there's a new GA102 GPU with 9984 CUDA cores, which will result in a performance level between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. The most likely name for this model will be GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
The graphics card would allegedly feature 9984 CUDA cores, 1280 cores more than RTX 3080. Kopite reports that the GPU variant on this SKU is likely the GA102-250. The memory configuration would also change to a 384-bit bus (compared to 320-bit on RTX 3080). A wider bus means that the card will likely feature a capacity of either 12 GB or 24 GB (same as RTX 3090).

Yesterday, there was a rumor about a GA102-150 GPU with with 7424 CUDA cores. That one may be the RTX 3070 Ti. The RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB on the other hand are reportedly cancelled. It seems NVIDIA has been making some last-minute changes to its roadmap.
