At the disposal of the Videocardz resource was photographic and specifications of the NVIDIA graphics processor, which was supposed to form the future GEFORCE RTX 3080 Ti video card. Based on early statements, this chip will not go into mass production: it has no final labeling and deprived of the mining limiter.
According to the information received, the early version of the GeForce RTX 3080 TI was based on the GA102-225 chip, which has already felled in past leaks. The VideoCardz informant confirmed that such a chip is equipped with 10 240 CUDA cores and works in a pair with 12 GB of video memory GDDR6X.
It is noteworthy that according to the source of the video card on the basis of GA102-225 is not recognized as the latest version of the video driver. This can serve as a confirmation that this GPU sample was released before NVIDIA decided to supply GeForce RTX 3080 TI with a hardware mining limiter. Most recently, Igor’s Lab resource explained that the manufacturer decided to releasing the entire series of GeForce RTX 3XXX video cards, including protection from mining, as well as support for ResizableBar technology. However, before this, the company has already managed to send by some partners qualifying samples of GeForce RTX 3080 TI without the mining limiter. Apparently, in this case we are talking about one of such early samples.
The informant also provided the results of the ETH cryptocurrency cryptocurrency efficiency tests with early GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. It is 118.9 mxeth / s. However, this indicator is achieved after optimization – TDP video cards are reduced to 278 V, and an effective memory frequency rate is increased to 21.4 GHz.
As for the characteristics of the early version of the GEFORCE RTX 3080 Ti, the base frequency of the GPU video card is 1365 MHz, and in boost mode it increases to a value of 1665 MHz. This is lower than the existing GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 models. It is noted that the reduced frequency is fully justified. Otherwise, the novelty could be a threat to the NVIDIA’s own flagship accelerator. The basic frequency of video memory is 1188 MHz, its effective indicator is 19 GHz, as well as the GeForce RTX 3080 model.
However, in serial video cards GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the characteristics may be slightly different, since at least another version of the GPU will be used in them.
