Rumours point to RTX 3080 Ti announcement on 18th May

We might be just three weeks away from seeing the RTX 3080 Ti announced. The upcoming graphics card has been rumoured for a long time now and has reportedly been hit with multiple delays. However, sources now reckon we’ll finally see the GPU in action next month. 

The rumour first appeared on the Expreview forums, which have since been privatised. Fortunately, ITHome (via Wccftech) spotted it. According to this source, Nvidia may announce the RTX 3080 Ti on the 18th of May, followed by reviews on the 25th of May and a retail launch a day later, on the 26th of May.

Apparently, the RTX 3080 Ti will ship with Nvidia’s mining limiter in place. This will be an updated version, as workarounds are now available for the first revision that shipped on the RTX 3060 in February.

From what we’ve gathered until now, the RTX 3080 Ti is expected to feature the GA102-225 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores, and 320 Tensor cores. As far as clock speeds go, rumour has it that we’ll see a 1365MHz base clock and a 1665MHz boost clock, as well as 12GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 19Gbps across a  384-bit memory bus.
