NVIDIA presumably cancelled the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti due to supply issues but now the SKU popped up again on the GPU designer's roadmap. Twitter leaker kopite7kimi claims NVIDIA has changed the specifications of the card. Previously, the RTX 3080 Ti was expected to feature 10496 CUDA cores and 20GB GDDR6X memory. What is in the works right now is a downgraded version, with 10240 CUDA cores and a mere 12GB GDDR6X memory. According to the leak, the card will be released in April.
With 12GB GDDR6X memory, the graphics card would have to rely on a wider 384-bit memory bus. Previous rumors have suggested that the card might feature 20 GB GDDR6X memory, in fact, this information has been available to board partners for at least 2 months. Some of them have already prepared product codes for the RTX 3080 Ti 20GB. However, it would seem that those product codes need to change now.
As always, this information is subject to change. GPU makers make frequent changes to roadmaps, especially during these abnormal times.
