NVIDIA is making RTX 3080 12GB once more

A {hardware} leaker with good contacts at board companions claims that NVIDIA is now producing RTX 3080 12GB SKU once more after stopping it two months ago.

The RTX 3080 12GB was one of the newest fashions launched this yr in January. This card was a beauty improve over the unique mannequin with 10GB, however was a wanted refresh of the GA102 GPU at the time. The RTX 3090 sequence have been just too costly.

Quick ahead to August this yr, NVIDIA is dealing with an enormous stock downside with RTX 30 sequence, there are just too many playing cards to promote and too few clients enthusiastic about shopping for a excessive-finish card simply 2 months away from subsequent-gen launch.

However as NVIDIA produces extra RTX 3090 playing cards with almost full GA102 GPU, the firm can be getting partially disabled GPUs, which can find yourself in SKUs akin to RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3080 10/12GB fashions. In keeping with MEGAsizeGPU, NVIDIA has simply began making RTX 3080 12GB playing cards once more. The rationale supposedly being the big inventory of GA102 GPUs:

NVIDIA could make RTX 3080 12GB playing cards regardless if the GA102 stock has sufficient appropriate chips or not. We now have seen this many instances, when the firm repurposed its increased-finish GPUs for different fashions, merely to proceed the production of extra reasonably priced SKUs. This may occasionally result in decrease income, however NVIDIA will get rid of the GA102 inventory a technique or the different.

The RTX 3080 12GB options 8960 CUDA cores (+256 over the unique), an elevated reminiscence measurement to 12GB and wider reminiscence bus of 320-bit. Apparently, NVIDIA by no means introduced the MSRP for this card.
