Some specs for Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3080 graphics card have been leaked, courtesy of Twitter user @_rogame.
The RTX 3080 will apparently have a 2,100MHz core clock limit, 10GB of VRAM, and 4,750MHz memory clock, according to @_rogame. According to info obtained by ExtremeTech, the GDDR6X will be able to transfer between 19 to 21 Gb/s per pin compared to the GDDR6’s 14 to 16 Gb/s.
In contrast, the existing RTX 2080 Super has 8GB of GDDR6 video memory and a memory speed of 15.5 Gbps. The 2080 Super also has a base clock speed of 1,650 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1,815 MHz.
It’s possible that we’ll know what the RTX 3000 family is packing for sure in a couple of weeks, as Nvidia recently announced a special event for 1 September. In fact, Nvidia hasn’t even officially announced the RTX 3000 cards yet. Hopefully, that will change next month.
