After including it on the GeForce RTX 3060, Nvidia is reportedly placing its crypto mining limiter on the yet-to-be-announced GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. A well known leaker who has been appropriate about GPU specs previously put the knowledge on Twitter Thursday afternoon.
The consumer, recognized merely as Kopite7kimi, states that not solely will the limiter be coming, however one other element of the cardboard has modified. Initially deliberate to have 20GB GDDR6X reminiscence on a 320-bit reminiscence bus, it seems the reminiscence quantity has been diminished.
The ultimate design of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti may have 12GB GDDR6X VRAM on a 384-bit bus. Although half the dimensions of the RTX 3090, the bus dimension is identical. That can enable reminiscence clock speeds of as much as 19 Gbps, simply .5 decrease than the RTX 3090.
It would have 12G 19Gbps VRAM and an ETH mining nerf too.
