Last year in September 2020, Nvidia released these 7 GPU’s in their GeForce 30 series:
- GeForce 3050
- GeForce 3050 Ti
- GeForce 3060
- GeForce 3060 Ti
- GeForce 3070
- GeForce 3080
- GeForce 3090
After that Nvidia was planning to release the new GeForce RTX 3080Ti at the CES event in Jan 2021.
However, the release was indefinitely postponed citing the release frequency as the main reason.
I believe that was fair for users who had bought a new GPU after the September release.
However, in the meanwhile, the rumor mill hasn’t stopped even for a second. And now, the latest update that’s coming around is regarding the pricing of the upcoming Nvidia GPU.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Leaked Specs
Last week, Techpowerup.com leaked some details upcoming GeForce RTX Ti. Here’s a list of specs getting compared with GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090:
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Leaked Pricing
Even though GeForce RTX 3080 Ti hasn’t been released yet but many PC enthusiasts want to know its pricing.
The good news is that a UK retailer that goes by the name LambdaTek has leaked what could be the pricing of the upcoming Nvidia GPU.
The 1st time I got to know the pricing, I was shell shocked as the posted pricing was starting from $2000.
Yeah! It’s $2000. Even higher than the $1,499 pricing of GeForce 2090.
How could this be?
It doesn’t matter how many times you ask me. My answer’s the same. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and check the snaps of live listing by yourself.
Well, at the moment, the plausible explanation seems to be that the listed pricing is probably for the Founders Edition of GeForce 3080 Ti.
So, whoever is planning to buy the custom edition, make sure that you’ve got a big budget as it will release with a premium pricing of over $2000. Take a look at the complete pricing chart:
That’s insane pricing. Isn’t?
As far as the normal edition is concerned, whenever Nvidia decides to release the 3080 Ti GPU, its pricing is expected to range between the MSRP of $999 & $1099.
If the expected pricing becomes the reality then this would certainly fill the gap left between the GeForce 3080 & GeForce 3090.
How do Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti fairs against GPU in GeForce 30 Series?
Last year GeForce RTX 3080 was released to target the 4K gaming segment and you can expect the upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti to follow the same path.
It was because of these high-end GPUs, a gamer can play a graphics-heavy game like Cyberpunk 2077, GTA V at a phenomenal 120 frames/second or above.
Just like when GeForce RTX 2080 Ti was released in the GeForce 20 series, it’s expected to balance the performance between GeForce RTX 3080 & GeForce RTX 3090.
If this comes to reality then it would be a treat for the fans as they would finally get a graphics card that is in their allocated budget and excels in 4K gaming performance without giving up on the resolution of their Desktop PC.
Right at the start of 2021, Nvidia indefinitely postponed the release of GeForce RTX 3080 TI. Now, with the latest leaks coming to the light, you can expect its release sooner than later.
