NVIDIA plans to launch the RTX 3080 20GB version in December,media videoCardZ reported. We had heard of 20GB before the ampere series was released, and it was originally scheduled to be released after AMD’s Big Navi. This new schedule indicates that NVIDIA plans to delay by one month.
The NVIDIA RTX 3080 will be based on the PG132 SKU20 and has been on the market for some time. Although it has the same CUDA kernel, the memory capacity is twice that of the existing one. Given that killer games like Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 have devoured all the vRAM provided by 2080 Ti, 10GB of memory will be a bit small in the next year or two.
With AMD’s introduction of a graphics card with 16GB vRAM, NVIDIA must have its own high-capacity vRAM graphics card to respond. Gyega has confirmed the launch of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, RTX 3070 16 GB, RTX 3060 8 GB graphics card. If you’re looking for higher-end graphics, wait until December.
According to the source, NVIDIA plans to issue two SKUs: 3080 20GB and 3070 16GB in December. The message said the 3070 Ti with 6,144 CUDA had been canceled. The exact cause is not yet known, butmedia believe it may be due to capacity problems with the GA104 (PG142 SKU 0 requires a full GPU to operate).
The GeForce RTX 3070 8GB will be updated to 16GB of memory. The SKU, coden named PG142 SKU 05, is also expected to be available in December. Meanwhile, the launch of the RTX 3060 Ti in the mid-market has now been delayed until mid-November, according to sources.
