What you need to know

  • The NVIDIA Ge Force RTX 3080 Ti is available starting today
  • The GPU outperforms the RTX 3080 (non-Ti) in several key areas, including VRAM, memory bus, and CUDA and RT cores.
  • The RTX 3080 Ti starts at $1,199, which is $500 more than the RTX 3080 (non-Ti).

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was only announced this week, but it's already available for purchase. The non-Ti RTX 3080 is already one of the best graphics cards on the market, so the RTX 3080 Ti going above and beyond its less powerful sibling in several areas should result in an excellent card.

The RTX 3080 Ti will have GA102-225 GPU, with 10,240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores (dedicated cores for ray tracing), 12GB of GDDR6X VRAM with a 384-bit bus, and a 350W TDP.

Those are some impressive specs, but they do come at a price. The RTX 3080 Ti starts at $1,199, which is $500 more than the RTX 3080 (non-Ti). For that additional $500, you get an extra 2GB of GDDR6X VRAM, a wider 384-bit bus, and extra CUDA and RT cores compared to the non-Ti RTX 3080.
