Rumoured RTX 3080 Ti benchmarks place the GPU extremely close to Nvidia's RTX 3090

Will the RTX 3080 Ti make the RTX 3090 obsolete?

Rumoured RTX 3080 Ti benchmarks place the GPU extremely close to Nvidia's RTX 3090

Benchmarks for Nvidia's 20GB RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards have been circulating online, originating from Bilibili and the Chinese creator "Big Hardware Player", who allegedly has gotten his hands on a Colorful RTX 3080 Ti engineering sample. 

Based on his video, Nvidia's RTX 3080 Ti graphics card will feature 20GB of 19Gbps GDDR6X memory, 10496 CUDA cores and a TDP of 350W. This makes this graphics card almost identical to Nvidia's RTX 3090 graphics card, with the only major difference being its use of slower GDDR6X memory and its user of a 20GB frame buffer over a 320-bit memory bus. 

If this leak is true, Nvidia's RTX 308 Ti will be an RTX 3090 with 4GB less VRAM, a smaller memory bus and slower GDDR6X memory. This would give the graphics card performance levels almost identical to Nvidia's RTX 3090 graphics card outside of memory limited workloads. 
 
At this time, this data should be treated as suspicious. Not only would this GPU design make the RTX 3090 all but obsolete, but the data shown here could be easily fabricated by anyone with the right knowledge. 

Even if this information proves to be false, it is worth noting that the performance gap between Nvidia's RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards is not that large, making any RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3080 Super GPU design likely to make the RTX 3090 practically obsolete if its pricing is lower. If a 20GB RTX 3080 Ti or Super graphics cards releases for $999, Nvidia's RTX 3090 will immediately lose any sense of "value", a factor which was already questionable for the often $1,499+ graphics card.

Twitter leaker @harukaze5719 took the 3DMARK results from this video and compared them to an RTX 3090 graphics card, highlighting that these results are exceptionally close to Nvidia's current Geforce flagship. This makes sense given the minor differences between the specifications of this alleged Nvidia's RTX 3080 Ti and Nvidia's RTX 3090.

Come on WYP, I mean what is the point of copy pasting this article which has been doing the rounds since yesterday. Just look at the memory capacity the 0 is overlapping the 4. Are you really that short of clicks around here ?Quote

For people like me who use this forum as their main source. I hadn't seen this elsewhere.

Why be so rude? Totally unnecessary post.Quote

who cares at this point... the shelves are empty and available! 3060 TI cards cost near to 1000 euro.Quote

Don't worry, noone will be able to buy it, so let's better talk about the weather then.Quote

It's a blurry image that was taken from an online video which was itself taken from a camera pointed at a screen.

I have since double-checked, and other sources are using a similar image. On Videocardz they used a less blurry and lacks the overlap that you are talking about.

For using their image, I will link to Videocardz's article. https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-g...legedly-tested

As mentioned in the article, any RTX 3080 Ti/Super graphics card will offer performance that is very close to the RTX 3090. I believe that there are aspects of this article/rumour that will remain relevant even if the source turns out to be false.

I have also stated in the article that these results are suspect and that they could easily be fabricated.

TBH I don't even know why I am responding to this comment. These are alleged benchmarks that even I said were suspect. Regardless, I feel that the results shown are pretty much what I'd expect from any RTX 3080 Ti or Super series GPU, so I think this is worth talking about.

A graphics card like the one alleged in this case would make the RTX 3090 almost pointless, as would a standard RTX 3080 with a 20GB frame buffer.

As a side note folks, please try to be constructive with criticism. Feel free to criticise or question my work as much as you want, but I don't want to be verbally attacked here.Quote
