MSI confirmed the existence of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti by mistake

Over the past few weeks we have already told you about the sighting of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Suprim X, a graphics card not yet officially announced by the well-known manufacturer and presumably already on sale at a very high price at a computer hardware retailer in the United Arab Emirates. .

Apparently, there is very little missing from a real presentation, so much so that the well-known leaker @momomo_us has posted on Twitter a screenshot showing the MSI website also listing the much-rumored NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, confirming the existence of the card. Unfortunately, since it was reported, the Taiwanese manufacturer has run for cover, removing any reference from its website. However, this small glitch could indicate that NVIDIA partners (like MSI) already have reference-based and (possibly) custom design-based cards ready for launch. What we don't know is when exactly NVIDIA plans to unveil its new flagship GPU or what the price will be.

Recall that, according to the latest rumors, the card will be equipped with 80 Streaming Multiprocessor (SM) for a total of 10,240 CUDA cores, 320 Tensor cores and 80 RT cores. Moving on to the operating frequencies, we are talking about a base clock of 1.365MHz and a boost clock of 1.665MHz. As for the memories, there should be on board 12GB of GDDR6X at 19Gb / s on a 384-bit bus for a total bandwidth of 912.4GB / s. The presence of the 225 numbering in the center of the GPU codename (GA102-225-A1) indicates the implementation of a hardware-level mining limiter, which should halve the Ethereum hash rate.

As far as gaming performance is concerned, they should be very close to that of the flagship RTX 3090, making it one of the best graphics cards on the market. The reduction in the number of CUDA cores is only 2.5%, but performance can be improved with a little overclocking. Obviously, given the current shortage of components, it will be quite difficult to get hold of one, especially during the first few weeks of marketing.
