RTX 3080 Ti, which has been changed many times and is expected to come with high capacity memory, may upset those who wait in terms of VRAM. It looks like the card is coming soon.
RTX 3080 Ti, which is difficult to keep up with the latest situation due to the news of cancellations, postponements and feature changes, may not offer high memory capacity.
According to a Twitter user known for previously verified leaks, Nvidia has made some important changes to the RTX 3080 Ti, which we were eagerly anticipating.
20 GB to 12 GB reduction
The latest update in the roadmap points out that 12 GB of memory capacity will be preferred instead of the long-known 20 GB VRAM capacity.
Interestingly, although the 20 GB VRAM information is the last known information by the business partners for 2 months, the companies even prepared the naming of the cards according to 20 GB.
RTX 3080 12 GB and RTX 3060 12 GB
It is wrong to compare the cards according to the memory capacity, but it seems that the reaction of the users as a result of the RTX 3080 Ti with GPUs close to the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3060 with the same memory capacity.
While the GDDR6X type memory does not change, the RTX 3080 Ti, which is expected to carry the same CUDA core as the RTX 3090, has been trimmed down from 10496 to 10240 units.
Finally, although it has been pointed out to the next April for the release date, which has changed 3 times so far, it is useful to approach with caution.
