Take the editor: Since its launch in September, there have been no new Nvidia RTX GPUs on the shelves. Since its launch in November and December, there have been no new AMD Radeon GPUs on the shelves. Let’s call this round one, let’s say it’s a draw and look at the second round: when there are cards on the shelves, and players have the right to vote with their wallets, who will be crowned champion?
Nvidia, says Nvidia. (Reframed for clarity.)
Nvidia came out rocking with the RTX 3000 Series, but they have a surprising left hook waiting in the wings. Asus has mistakenly confirmed the existence of the RTX 3080 Ti, revealing that it has 20GB of memory. Target the new card RX 6900 XT.
A 20GB version of the RTX 3080 was used Rumored for months, Shave Similar upgrades down the stackRTX 3070: 16GB, 12GB, and 6GB RTX 3060 models also expected. Nvidia’s Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of GeForce, is expected to announce them no later than Hypothetical event on January 12th. Rumors Suggest February release.
On the performance spectrum, Ti models will fall above their vanilla counterparts. The increased memory will provide an improvement worth a few percentage points, more in a higher resolution, and rumors of increased clock and base clock speeds can lead to a ~ 10% upgrade. Their pricing could likewise be boosted in worst-case scenarios, but will most likely land a hair higher than current MSRPs. Vanilla models may also be discounted as a result.
But questions remain. If Nvidia is selling every card it can actually produce, why do they need upgraded versions? (Does this mean they are expecting more stocks?) If DLSS and ray tracing and POS tracking are their GPUs, why should they not prioritize it? (Okay, low blow on my behalf …But more importantly, will AMD respond?
