Photo shows pallet of MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12GB video cards

Photos of a pallet of MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti video cards have surfaced. The video card is said to be on its way to distribution centers in the US, suggesting that the RTX 3080 Ti will be announced soon. According to previous rumors, the GPU will be released in May.

The photos initially appeared on Facebook, VideoCardz and HKEPC also write. The images show a pallet of several MSI graphics cards on their way to Los Angeles, including RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 graphics cards, in addition to the as-yet-unannounced RTX 3080 Ti. It is a Ventus 3X model with factory overclock.

The packaging label confirms that the RTX 3080 Ti will get 12GB of video memory, which corresponds to previously leaked specifications of the as yet unannounced video card. The GPU would include 10,240 CUDA cores. That is 256 fewer than the RTX 3090. The 3080 Ti would also have 320 Tensor cores and 80 cores for ray tracing. The rumors also state that the GPU has a memory speed of 19Gbit/s with a 384bit memory bus. That equates to a bandwidth of 864GB/s. The video card would also get a hashrate limiter, which would halve the crypto mining performance.

Nvidia hasn’t officially announced the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti yet. The GPU would initially be released in April, but according to more recent rumors, the video card will be released in mid-May, VideoCardz also writes. Earlier there were rumors that Nvidia would release an RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB of Gddr6x memory, but the GPU maker would have deleted that variant.
