NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti card leaked Benchmarks show GA102 card is comparable to GeForce RTX 3090 card

Reputable NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti benchmarks have surfaced, showcasing the upcoming card against the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. However, it is not clear why NVIDIA chose to release the RTX 3080 Ti on these benchmarks.

References to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti have once again appeared online, thanks to a Chinese content creator named Big Hardware Player. The RTX 3080 Ti has been mentioned in the same breath as the RTX 3050 and RTX 3060, among other cards that have been the subject of rumors, although only the RTX 3060 has been released so far. More recently, Palit registered the RTX 3080 Ti part numbers with the EEC, while FinalWire added part numbers to the board in an AIDA64 Extreme revision.

Big Hardware Player went much further than previous leaks, however. As seen in the embedded video below, the content creator claims to have done a benchmarking review of the RTX 3080 Ti, although it is a technical sample. Apparently, the card packs a GA102 GPU and shares almost all of its specs with the RTX 3090. However, its 320-bit interface reduces its memory bandwidth to 760.3 GB / s, which is 175.9 GB / s less than the bandwidth of the RTX 3090. The RTX 3080 Ti also has 20 GB of VRAM, instead of the 24 GB and 10 GB that the RTX 3090 respectively have. and the RTX 3080. In addition, the RTX 3080 Ti has a base clock speed 31 MHz lower than that of the RTX 3090.

Unsurprisingly, the RTX 3080 Ti appears to perform slightly lower than the RTX 3090 in most cases, possibly due to its lower memory bandwidth and VRAM capacity.

We would be remiss though not to mention some discrepancies in the leak. For one thing, Big Hardware Player never shows an image of the alleged RTX 3080 Ti in its video. While this does not necessarily mean that the information provided is false, we find it curious that Big Hardware Player did not provide any images of the card despite giving so many details about the alleged technical sample.

On the other hand, GPU-Z recognizes the card as an RTX 3080 even though the SKU does not yet exist. Likewise, we doubt TechPowerUp has updated GPU-Z to support a card NVIDIA has yet to announce.

In short, not everything looks right with this leak. While this may be true, there are some red flags here. In addition, there is virtually no difference in performance between the RTX 3080 and RTX Ti 3090, and we know so why NVIDIA would publish the first.
