The 10GB VRAM detail, which has remained bittersweet since the introduction of Nvidia’s flagship RTX 3080, will finally be resolved.
However, at ces 2022, which ended yesterday, we saw the announcement of the RTX 3070 Ti from Nvidia, but we did not hear any progress on the RTX 3080’s 12GB VRAM model. Although the RTX 3080 last year captivated gamers with its performance, its 10GB VRAM upset 8K gamers. This situation, which is the target of negative reviews, will be solved with the RTX 3080 12GB model, which will be introduced next week, according to rumors.
TX 3080 12GB to be unveiled next week, rumor has it
Although we saw the mobile version of the RTX 3080 Ti at CES, desktop users expected the RTX 3080 12GB model. The fact that this new VRAM option was not introduced at the event upsets those waiting, but rumor has it that the expected launch will take place next week. With the announcement on January 11th, the RTX 3080’s option with 12GB of VRAM will no longer be an expectation. However, sources who gave this date could not give details on when the card would go on sale.
We expect the new 12GB VRAM module to run through the next generation GDDR6X. However, the GPU is expected to be 8960 CUDA. Compared to the rtx 3080’s standard model, the cuda number increases by 3 percent. Therefore, there will be a slight increase in performance. The main show point of the card is that it plays games in high resolutions such as 8K comfortably. In addition, the bandwidth of memory is expected to increase by 20 percent with this new technology.
