Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) has announced the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. As rumored recently, The former will have 2GB more GDDR6X memory than the RTX 3080, feature a wider memory interface at 384-bit (the same as the RTX 3090) compared to 32o-bit and have more tensor cores at 10,240 compared to 8,704.
The new card was described by Nvidia as the new ‘flagship’ although the RTX 3090 still costs more and trumps the RTX 3080 Ti in a couple of areas, most notably with memory at 24GB versus 12GB.The RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia claims, is up to one and a half times faster in games than its predecessor, the RTX 2080 Ti
A second announcement featured the expected RTX 3070 too. This has more CUDA cores than the RTX 3070 at 6,144 versus 5,888, a higher boost frequency of 1.77GHz versus 1.73GHz and it’s cooler is a whole inch longer too while the board power has risen from 220W to 290W, resulting in the need for an additional free 8-pin power cable (the RTX 3070 just needed a single cable).
