In temporary: Nvidia’s Ampere-based shopper graphics playing cards arrive later this yr, and we would have gotten our first have a look at the potential flagship: the RTX 3080 Ti. We’re additionally listening to rumors that the high-end Ampere playing cards might use Samsung’s 8nm fab course of, slightly than TSMC’s 7nm various.
The picture was shared by VideoCardz, which claims it comes from an inner Asus assembly the place new graphics card designs have been being showcased. If that actually is the case, this may simply be one among a number of attainable designs steered for the RTX 3080 Ti, although it may very well be near the ultimate design.
As with so many different pictures that seem on-line, there’s an opportunity this can be a full faux, however VideoCardz up to date their article to emphasize it actually does come from an Asus assembly. That “3080 Ti” and “ROG Strix” textual content seems like it will be fairly tiny on a last design, although.
The card options three followers and appears fairly much like the Asus ROG Strix 2080 Ti. The two-tone metallic, rivets, and angular form could be a bit love-it-or-hate-it, but it surely’s actually higher than the RTX 3080 prototype we noticed final month.
If that is the actual deal, it’d counsel we received’t see the rumored RTX 3090, with Ampere adopting the identical Turing naming scheme and leaping from the RTX 3080 Ti to the brand new Titan card. That stated, one other rumor claims we’ll see an RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090, and an Ampere Titan.

Separately, TechPowerUp reviews that the Ampere household of GPUs will likely be constructed nearly solely on Samsung’s eight nanometer silicon fabrication course of that is derived from its 10nm node, slightly than TSMC’s 7nm course of. It’s all hypothesis, in fact, however we did hear that Nvidia is tapping Samsung to partially produce its post-Ampere structure, Hopper.
