According to the latest leaks, NVIDIA plans to release three new GPUs in January 2022. These GPUs are the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, RTX 3070 Ti, and RTX 3050. The RTX 3090 Ti will be the new “flagship” GPU and the RTX 3050 is the entry-level GPU of this generation. You might be wondering, why is NVIDIA releasing an RTX 3070 Ti GPU when it was already released a few months ago? Well, the new RTX 3070 Ti gets an upgrade in the memory department. The new RTX 3070 Ti will come with a 16GB memory, twice the size of its predecessor. Check out more details below.
GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Release Date and Some Specs Leaked!
Based on the leaked information published by Videocardz.com, a certain RTX 3090 Ti will be released next month. It will have an “on-shelf” availability by January 27, 2022.
The RTX 3090 Ti is a beefed-up version of the RTX 3090. The “Ti” variant uses a GA102-350 GPU die with 10752 CUDA cores. That’s 256 more CUDA cores than the RTX 3090. It will also come with upgraded memory, 24GB GDDR6X with a memory speed of 21 Gbps. Memory size is similar but with a slightly higher or faster clock speed.
With a slightly higher CUDA core count and slightly faster memory speed, the 3090 Ti could offer a bit of performance improvement from the RTX 3080 Ti.
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB and RTX 3050 Coming As Well
Aside from the RTX 3090 Ti, NVIDIA plans to release an RTX 3070 Ti with improved memory size. The RTX 3070 Ti released mid-this year only came with 8GB GDDR6X memory.
The new RTX 3070 Ti variant will have 16GB of GDDR6X memory but will have the same memory speed of 19 Gbps. It will also feature a slightly different GPU die, GA104-401 instead of GA104-400, and have 6144 CUDA cores.
Finally, I guess we won’t be seeing a “3050 Ti” (yet). Instead, NVIDIA plans to release an RTX 3050 by January 27, 2022. It means NVIDIA will release its new flagship and entry-level GPU on the same day.
According to leaks, the RTX 3050 will use a GA106-150 GPU die and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. There are no reports yet about its CUDA core count of memory speed.
Unfortunately, there is no (leaked) information about these new GPUs’ pricing. But even though their respective “MSRP” could be reasonable, expect to pay (unreasonably) higher, no thanks to supply issues and very high demand.
