It looks like Nvidia is making a healthy RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB of VRAM, but it's unclear when you can buy it, even if you can. The most worrying part is that we don't have to wait for the next generation of graphics cards to see single GPUs with more than 400 watts of power - mid-gen hardware seems to be harder and thirstier than ever.
When Steve Walton tested the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, he couldn't help but ask the audience. The RTX 3080 Ti proved to be a solid member of the Ampere family, but was also an expensive and time-consuming version with only half the RTX 3090 VRAM. Rumors have swirled for months about an updated RTX 3080 with 20GB of VRAM, but when the RTX 3080 Ti arrived, Nvidia fans were disappointed with just 12GB, less than any other card. AMD Radeon 6000 is advanced. However, Asus and Gigabyte dropped last year, showing off unreleased RTX 3080 Ti storage units with 20GB of video memory, so it was only a matter of time before they showed up again.
Due To the fact that one Russian retailer is currently selling a 20GB RTX 3080 Ti card and the other is currently listing new model cards on their website, we no longer have to wait in place, more will come out. In terms of price, the MSRP might be somewhere between the RTX 3080 Ti 12GB and the RTX 3090, which have MSRPs of $1,200 and $1,500, respectively — rather than expecting to find the new RTX 3080 Ti. Nowhere near the recommended price.
Rumors are also circulating about the RTX 3090 Super Monster, which will also have a TGP over 400W. In any case, the lifespan of single GPUs over 400W appears to have arrived, despite indications that next-generation Nvidia and AMD models will be ahead.
Meanwhile, Intel is working hard on its Alchemical GPUs, but is not yet ready to fight the monsters that appear from other manufacturers' dungeons.
