NVIDIA is pretty secretive and concise when it comes to information about its upcoming graphics cards, which we’ve been fueling for weeks on the basis of leaks, rumors, and speculation. However, and the precedents prove us right, these leaks, rumors and speculations will prove to be correct for the most part and, as we have already mentioned, while NVIDIA has yet to give names, it is obvious that the launch refers to RTX. 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti.
NVIDIA to unveil RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti on May 31
Monday, May 31st was the date chosen by NVIDIA for the presentation of its new graphics cards, and as we mentioned at the beginning, it did so through a short teaser of a few seconds in which you can see what seems to flow. liquid metal (titanium)

These two new graphics cards will replace the current category leaders, the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070, obviously updating and improving their performance to better compete with AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT respectively. The fact that NVIDIA provided this preview coincides earlier with the start of the main event of the COMPUTEX 2021
Therefore, it is expected that the official launch of these two graphics cards will take place sometime in June, right after the official presentation which will take place on May 31st. Anyway, we repeat that precisely next Monday we will leave doubts.
What we can expect from NVIDIA’s new GPUs
As of now, as you know, there is absolutely no confirmed information, so again, we are relying on the rumors and leaks that exist so far, in addition to more obvious assumptions such as the fact that the RTX 3080 Ti will be placed on price and performance. between the current RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080, while the RTX 3070 Ti would be placed between the current RTX 3080 and the RTX 3070 (that’s pure logic).
For the rest, we hope to be able to resolve the doubts precisely on Monday, May 31, when NVIDIA will now make the official announcement; So far, rumors and leaks say that the RTX 3080 Ti will be powered by the Ampere GA102-225 GPU with 10,240 CUDA cores and 12 GB of GDDR6X graphics memory, an increase of 2 GB over the 10 GB of the RTX. 3080..
For its part, the RTX 3070 Ti would have the GA104-400 GPU with 6,144 active CUDA cores coupled with 8 GB of GDDR6X graphics memory, the same amount of memory as the current RTX 3070 but with a higher bandwidth than GDDR6. this one.
