The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which we have reviewed in detail before, is one of the best gaming cards on the market right now. As you know, this card has 12 GB GDDR6X memory. But a new firmware and YouTube video confirms the existence of the RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB model.
In fact, long ago, it was spoken that the RTX 3080 Ti would come with 20 GB of GDDR6X memory. The GeForce RTx 3080 Ti 20GB firmware, which an anonymous user recently submitted to TeowerUp, is based on Gigabyte’s Aorus GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Xtreme (GV-N308TAORUS X-20GD). This graphics card first appeared in a Gigabyte EEC list in December 2020.
Meanwhile, the device ID for the regular GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is 10DE 2208, while the 20 GB version is identified by device ID 10DE 2205. As the model name suggests, the only difference between the two GeForce RTX 3080 Ti models is the capacity of the GDDR6X memories.
The expected new card has 20GB of GDDR6X memory, which represents a 67% increase over the current RTX 3080 Ti model. The memory clock is said to stay the same at 19 Gbps, however, but the memory bus is smaller.
The CPU-Z screenshot revealed that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20GB variant has a 320-bit memory bus, as opposed to the 384 bidollarsik interfaces on the 12GB model. So that means lower bandwidth. The current GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is limited to 912 GBps, while the 20 GB variant is limited to 760 GBps.
A Russian cryptocurrency miner has apparently managed to access the RTX 3080 Ti Gaming OC 20G (GV-N308TGAMING OC-20GB) graphics card. Considering the amount of 20 GB of memory, it is possible to say that it is a suitable model for cryptocurrency miners.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3090 have a list price of $1,199 and $1,499, respectively. It is a matter of curiosity what kind of price NVIDIA will do for the 20 GB version.
