    Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch put back to the end of Feb

    Originally planned for January, Nvidia feels comfortable enough to delay this $999 GPU.

    I find it hard to believe that the 3060 will have more VRAM than the next 3 cards above it. Whilst the Ti variants will seek to remedy this the 3080ti looks to supplement the range rather than replace the non Ti's.

    It would also leave the just released 3060ti in a strange spot.

    it is funny how they are trying to match the 3080ti with the 6900xt

    That's a fine line the 3080ti has to sit on between the 3080 and 3090, specially just for gaming. I'm not really sure who it's aimed at?

    Think this be another generation that I decide to give a miss. Unless the 3080 comes down to something like the original quoted RRP and is actually available of course.
    Live long and prosper.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch put back to the end of Feb

    I really wanted a 3080 but that 10gb VRAM is a real sticking point; games regularly use all my 11gb currently and it will only get worse in the future. Feels like a bit of a kick to the knackers having to pay 300 quid for a sensible amount of VRAM for 4K.

    The only way I can see you getting a card close to the original RRP is by buying the Founders Edition version, if you can manage to find one in stock. That just depends on sheer luck.

    I'm surprised the 3080Ti isn't 16GB, considering Nvidia could still charge $999 and get away with it (thanks to AMD).

    I've seen a few people saying this, but never any real-world examples, outside of blender workloads, of the 10GB not being enough. Maybe the faster 6x memory makes up for it? Are your games "using" that 11GB actually using it, or just reserving it?

    Exactly what I was thinking last night about the Ti, not much wriggle room between the 3080 and 3090 performance wise.

    I think there are plenty of people who want more VRAM than the 3080 but who didn't fancy paying 3090 money. Until feb their only option is an AMD card.

    This will end up the same exact way the current 30 series have.

    Out of interest, where are you seeing these VRAM figures - in Task Manager?

    Reason being, I was under the same impression until a couple of days ago thinking that, in my case, Flight Simulator was consuming virtually all of my 1080Ti's 11GB of VRAM. But after doing some digging on teh webs, I found out that what Task Manager shows is allocated VRAM, which is different to actual VRAM usage. FS2020 has a developer mode which shows its actual VRAM usage, and since enabling that I've never seen it go above ~6GB (though admittedly I'm gaming at 1440p, not 4K). When I then look in Task Manager it still shows 10.7GB VRAM but, as I understand it, this is misleading as it's only what's been allocated, not what's actually being used.

    Of course, your situation may be different as you're gaming at 4K, but I thought this was worth mentioning as, judging by the forum threads I found, I'm far from the only person to have misunderstood the VRAM figure in Task Manager.

    It hasn't even launched yet and the 30tribble is already duplicating

    (Assuming rumours are true) I'm not, when the 3080 came out with 10GB and was a 'cut down' 3090 it was pretty obvious (to me) how they'd make the 3080ti, it was just things like clock speed and maybe cuda cores that were unknown. Doubling the memory and upping the clocks is a 'cheap' way to make a ti from the slightly better binned 3080 chips (well not quite 3090 ones). The gap in pricing made £1000 predictable as well in all honesty, although would like a little cheaper.

    To me the current rumour of the 3080ti having the same cuda cores as the 3090 seems a little suspect, it would cut into the 3090 too much imo.. if I was a betting man I'd say it will have around 9600 cuda cores (it's half way house between the 3080/3090 and some old rumours said 9984 for it too) but at the same time I wouldn't be shocked to see the 3080 ti have the same as the 3080.

    In all honesty if it wasn't for AMD coming out pretty strongly and in a way forcing Nvidia's hand a little I wouldn't have put it past Nvidia to just release the 'double ram' versions with slightly higher clocks as the ti versions and call it a day lol.

    Mind you without stock it really doesn't make much difference what they're selling because at this rate we'll be on 'next gen' (I suspect it will be shorter window this time)
