The ill fated RTX 3080 ti is still coming: the whole system of mining restriction

Due to various reasons such as product planning, market quotation, competitive product situation, etc., NVIDIA RTX 30 series product line adjustment is very frequent, many models are cancelled or changed midway, and there are many delays. RTX 3080

Ti is a typical example. It was originally planned to be released in early January to replace RTX 3090 to compete with RX 6900

XT, but it may be that the latter is basically out of stock and there is no real market threat. NVIDIA is too lazy to fight back. It was once reported that the card has been shelved indefinitely.

According to the latest news, NVIDIA has updated the roadmap to AIC manufacturers, confirming that RTX 3080 ti will still be released, but the specifications have changed a lot. In the original design, RTX 3080

Ti’s stream processor and RTX

3090 is the same as 10496, but now it has been reduced to 10240, while the bit width of video memory has been increased from 320 bit to 384 bit. The grain size is still gddr6x, but the video memory has been reduced from 20GB to 12gb.

Lao Huang is really mean in video memory. I don’t know whether he thinks 12gb is enough or to control the cost. In addition, RTX 3080 ti will also be used with RTX

3060 also limits the mining performance, but the scope and extent of the limitation are not clear. I don’t know whether it is also limited to about half of the Ethereum computing power.

In fact, the RTX 30 series will be upgraded in the future to restrict mining, but there is no timetable. RTX 3080

Ti is expected to be released in April, but may be adjusted at any time. The good news is that it will be available immediately after the release. The bad news is that no one knows the supply.

After the release of RTX 3080 Ti, it will not eliminate RTX 3080, but coexist with it, which is also a relatively more important model. Of course, RTX will not be eliminated

3090, but in this way, the price will be very interesting. Previously, it was said that the RTX 3080 is the same as the RTX 3080, which is $999. Now, after the allocation is reduced, the price will also be reduced? RTX 3080 price cut at the same time?
