RTX 3080 Ti: A leak from a Polish store this week cemented the GeForce’s existence RTX 3080 Ti, indicating that the part should be almost officially announced by Nvidia. In addition to some of the configurations, it was noticeable that the GPU must also limit the hashrate for mining.
The video card should have 12 GB of VRAM GDDR6X, 10,240 CUDA cores and cost about $ 999 (about R $ 5.4 thousand at the current price). According to the Digital Trends website, the product is expected to hit the market at the end of May 2021.
The last event with news from Nvidia was CES 2021, which was held in January. The company showed, among other things, laptops from the RTX 30 and RTX 3060 series.
And in addition to the RTX 3080 Ti, reports indicate that the RTX 3070 Ti and laptops with the possible RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti will hit the market in June.
Mining and plaque shortages
The new GPU will continue Nvidia’s “project” of mastering mining with its accessories. According to the VideoCardz website, the RTX 3080 Ti is expected to achieve a hashrate of 118.9 MH / s, which is a high speed. It is in this scenario that the driver solutions, BIOS, will enter to limit this number.
The company created a series of video cards specifically for mining, precisely to prevent people from buying game-oriented parts with the aim of mining cryptocurrencies. This usage is one of the reasons for the scarcity of plates in the market, according to the company.
A few weeks ago, the company’s chief financial officer, Colette Kress, said Nvidia’s GPU stock will remain low until at least the end of 2021.
