For weeks now, the existence of the possibility RTX 3080 with 20 GB de VRAM, but this new information adds to the speculation RTX 3070 with 16GB image memory and, moreover, launches its launch in December. This would contradict what the CEO of NVIDIA himself said, who confirmed that until next year they would not be able to provide the demand for the graphics cards they currently have.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20GB, 3070 16GB y 3060 Ti
NVIDIA is aware of the problems caused by the stock shortage of its graphics cards (especially in second-hand markets due to speculators), and in order to combat this problem, according to the source, it has decided to change its launch schedule, which will be called the RTX 30 Series “refresh” and will be accurately distributed by RTX The 3080 is said to have 20 GB of memory, twice as much as the current one.
Earlier there was talk of the 6144 CUDA RTX 3070 Ti, but it seems NVIDIA has abandoned that GPU for now (although it is true that it has a lot of votes to get it again in the future). Nothing has been confirmed, but it is believed that the production error rate on the GA104 chips could be problematic, where we could say goodbye to SUPER models at least in the short to medium term, until NVIDIA manages to overcome these operational issues. production.
What seems certain is that we will see the RTX 3070 models with 16 GB of VRAM compared to the 8 GB that would have the first version. This SKU is code PG142 SKU 05 and is expected to be released in December if all goes well. In the meantime, in the middle class there is room for consideration RTX 3060 Ti, which according to the source could also improve its launch until mid-November.
According to a source, both the RTX 3080 20 GB and the RTX 3070 16 GB would hit the market sometime in mid-December, and if all goes well NVIDIA would be surprised to launch the RTX 3060 Ti in mid-November.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 in light
After all, all of these NVIDIA releases would be considered a competitive idea from AMD, which is already said that over the next generation it will compete directly with the RTX 3080 from you to you. According to current data, the Navi 21 GPU of AMD will have 16 GB of memory, which is why NVIDIA can now speed up its plans to introduce models with more graphics memory, awaiting events to avoid that the first AMD GPU ratings and market success their GPUs.
It must be remembered, of course, as we always say, that this information is not guaranteed by the manufacturers and therefore we must treat it as such, because things can change very much and in a very short time as well.
