GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and more, that’s when new NVIDIA GPUs will arrive

January 4 at CES 2022 Nvidia will announce a renewal of the desktop offerwith new designs that should keep the Ampere offering competitive for much of the year, before introducing an all-new architecture, now codenamed Ada Lovelace.

According to the last rumorsafter months of beating and rehearsing over the nomenclature of new video cards, it seems that on January 4th the company led by Jensen Huang will present the GeForce RTX 3090Ticard that will represent the new top of the RTX 3000 series. At the same time, NVIDIA is also expected to announce the GeForce RTX 3050. Both cards must beginning officially the January 27.

As for the two other models whose arrival has been rumored for some time, namely the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB of VRAM and GeForce RTX 3080 with 12 GB of VRAM, rumors are first reporting that the announcement could arrive as early as December 17, about a week from today, with an official start on January 11. In the case of the second, however, the mystery of the dates remains, even though in the past the same days have become widespread.

The technical specifications of the RTX 3090 Ti they should expect a GA102 GPU with 10752 CUDA cores, which is 256 more than the current model’s 10,496 CUDA cores. In practice, NVIDIA would unlock the two Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) disabled on the current card, offering the GA102 in all its glory. As a result, the card should also offer 336 Tensor cores and 84 RT cores.

The chip must be tiled for 24 GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory on the bus at 384-bit, while the RTX 3090 has the same memory but tuned to 19.5 Gbps. The specifications should lead the RTX 3090 Ti to exceed a TDP of 400W, more than 50W more than the current model (350W).

In the case of GeForce RTX 3080 with 12 GB of memorya, the card could have in addition to 2 GB more than the RTX 3080 (like the RTX 3080 Ti) also a higher number of cores, but we emphasize that this is only a guess. The RTX 3080 has 8704 active cores, while the RTX 3080 Ti hits 10240, so the RTX 3080 12GB might also see some changes in terms of cores (8960 cores?).

There GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB of VRAM should keep the same specifications as the model with 8 GB of memory, so it should have a GA104 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores and 19 Gbps memory. Finally, the RTX 3050 could come with a GA106 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit bus.
