After appearing in an overseas shipment, the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC graphics card has appeared on an online store. The listing comes from a Polish retailer, X-Kom, who has listed the card but isn't taking any pre-orders yet.
MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC Graphics Card Listed Online - 12 GB GDDR6X Memory & Triple-Fan Cooling
The retailer allows customers to ask for the availability of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC but doesn't provide an exact shipment, pre-order date, or pricing. The listing does confirm that the card is going to be announced soon with recent rumors pointing out to a 26th May hard launch for the NVIDIA 3080 Ti. There's a possibility that retailers will be allowed to go live with pre-orders soon after the announcement.
The MSI 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC graphics card is a fully custom design that features a 2.5 slot and triple-fan cooling solution. The card will feature a graphene backplate and is expected to get its power from dual 8-pin connectors. The card will feature the standard HDMI and triple Display Port outputs.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 'Rumored' Graphics Card Specifications
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB FE (Founders Edition) graphics card is expected to feature the PG132-SKU18 PCB design and the GA102-225-KD-A1 graphics core. The GA102-225 GPU has also changed since the last time we saw them and will now feature 10240 CUDA cores within a total of 80 SM units. The GPU features a clock speed of 1365 MHz base and 1665 MHz boost, both of which are slower than the existing GA102 GeForce RTX GPUs.
It was reported yesterday that the final NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is expected to ship with the new GA102-202 or GA102-302 GPU core features the same specifications as the QS but is locked for mining.
As for memory, the card will feature 12 GB of GDDR6X memory. Unlike the 19.5 Gbps speeds of the RTX 3090, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is said to retain the same memory speeds as the RTX 3080 at 19 Gbps. Since we are getting 12 GB memory, the NVIDIA 3080 Ti will be using a 384-bit bus interface which equals a total bandwidth of 912 GB/s. So while we see an 8 GB VRAM reduction over the previous spec, the larger bus interface should drive higher memory bandwidth.
The TGP for the card is set to be the same as the RTX 3080 at 320 Watts. That's definitely needed to feed the extra cores so NVIDIA might have to optimize the clocks a bit here. The NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti is expected to feature an MSRP of around $999 US while ITHome has reported that a price of 7999 Chinese Yuan which is equal to around $1200 US is expected in the Asian-Pacific retail market.
