NVIDIA is largely expected to make a splash at Gamescom next week with a new set of graphics cards, something the GPU maker not-so-subtly hinted at earlier this week. And now we may have an idea of the monstrous specs in store for gamers, thanks to a new leak.
According to the folks at VideoCardz.com, NVIDIA is set to debut not only the new RTX 2080 but also its high-performance sibling, the RTX 2080 Ti. Typically NVIDIA leaves a gap between the release of its base series and its Ti brethren, so it's surprising to see they're potentially set to be announced together.
But digging into the specs, things get pretty interesting. According to the report, the RTX 2080 Ti will include 4,352 CUDA cores, along with 11GB of 352-bit memory with a total bandwidth of 616 GB/s. For comparison, the current 1080 Ti packs 3,584 Cuda cores and 11GB of 352-bit memory at 484 GB/s.
Meanwhile, the RTX 2080 tones things down a bit with 2,944 Cuda cores and 8GB of 256-bit memory with a bandwidth of 448 GB/s. That's greater than the current GTX 1080, which sports 2,560 Cuda cores with 8GB of 256-bit memory at 352 GB/s.
Both models are expected to be built on NVIDIA's new Turing GPU architecture, which the company initially debuted this week with its Quadro RTX cards for professionals. The Turing architecture includes new capabilities ranging from hardware-accelerated real-time ray tracing, AI, and more.
Lastly, VideoCardz.com offered an early look at a Gigabyte RTX card featuring a triple-fan setup. You can check out the shots below:
