European retailers began to prepare for the release of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
The other day it was reported that boxes with not yet announced video cards GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC from MSI were seen in one of the customs transit zones. The same video card appeared in the database of a large Polish electronics store X-Kom. As the resource VideoCardz writes, this retailer has direct contacts with manufacturers, which allows him to receive information about new products, one of the first on the market.
The store page does not confirm the full specs of the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC. The seller only indicates that the video card is equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6X video memory. It is also reported that the start of its deliveries is expected shortly.
According to the latest rumors, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be unveiled on May 25. The video card will go on sale a day later. It will be based on the GA102-225 GPU with 10,240 CUDA cores. Some internet sources attribute the new product to a price of $ 999, which is quite reasonable given its alleged specifications. However, this information is still unconfirmed, and, of course, the final word on this matter remains with NVIDIA itself.
As for a specific model GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC, then, based on expectations, it should receive the same cooling system as the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 models from the same manufacturer and in the same performance.
