The launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB could be very close

The GeForce RTX 2060 12GB isn't the only recent graphics card from NVIDIA with more memory. VideoCardz colleagues shared two renders of a custom GeForce RTX 3080 12GB, a product that has been talked about for several months now.

However, rumors indicate a more generous amount of Streaming Multiprocessors (SM) enabled. While the standard GeForce RTX 3080 has 68SM (8,704 CUDA cores), the 12GB variant may come with two additional SMs. This would bring the number of CUDA cores to 8,960, 280 Tensor cores and 70 RT cores. It's not a massive upgrade, but 3% more CUDA cores should give the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB quite a noticeable advantage in the benchmarks.

The GeForce RTX 3080 12GB, as its name indicates, will be equipped with 12GB of GDDR6X memory, 2GB more than the standard GeForce RTX 3080. The modules will likely be the same, but the revamped Ampere graphics card will presumably be equipped with a 384-bit memory interface. The larger bus would allow the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB to reach a bandwidth of 912.4GB / s, 20% more than the GeForce RTX 3080 with its 320-bit memory interface. Having more cores and memory means that the 12GB GeForce RTX 3080 should have a higher TDP. The GeForce RTX 3080 has a TDP of 320W, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB with a TDP of between 340 and 350W.

The robust iCX3 cooling system is still present, and the card continues to depend on three 8-pin PCIe power connectors to get all the power it needs. If it weren't for the “12GB GDDR6X” label on the packaging, you wouldn't be able to tell the two cards apart.

Given the shortage of graphics cards, there will likely be limited stock and the price could be significantly higher than the MSRP.
