Can this rumor be true? Really? I guess it might possibly happen since Nvidia apparently scrapped the idea of a RTX 3080 with 20GB of GDDR6X ram.
Taken from Videocardz … Kopite7kimi, a leaker better known for revealing details on GeForce RTX Ampere series months in advance is now reporting on a new SKU that would fill the (already narrow) gap between GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 SKUs.
The graphics card would allegedly feature 9984 CUDA cores, 1280 cores more than RTX 3080. Kopite reports that the GPU variant on this SKU is likely the GA102-250. The memory configuration would also change to a 384-bit bus (compared to 320-bit on RTX 3080). A wider bus means that the card will likely feature a capacity of either 12 GB or 24 GB (same as RTX 3090).
We have not yet been able to confirm the SKU that Kopite has mentioned yesterday. According to his information, NVIDIA is also allegedly planning to release a GA102-150 model featuring 7424 CUDA cores, possibly codenamed RTX 3070 Ti.
