We recently announced Nvidia’s intentions to start selling the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. The innovation will be based on the Nvidia Ampera GA102 graphics core and equipped with 10,240 CUDA processors. With 12 gigabytes of 384-bit GDDR6 graphics memory, the maximum power consumption will be around 320 watts, which means that we will only be able to use it in “advanced” computer cases with high-end PSUs.
Since the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be quite expensive, there are already rumors online that Nvidia is preparing another graphics card for less demanding gaming fans. It is supposed to be a GeForce RTX 3050 Ti model. It’s expected to be much less powerful than the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti model, but it will still cope with more demanding tasks.
The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card will be based on the Nvidia Ampera GA107 graphics core, which means that it will be equipped with 2,304 CUDA cores. There will be GDDR6 graphics memory with a capacity of only 4 gigabytes and a 128-bit bus interface, being able to play games with it at slightly lower graphics settings. Maximum power consumption will be around 60 watts.
