NVIDIA’s next-gen GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is going to be a huge leap in terms of performance, if leaked specs are anything to go by. A now deleted tweet from “Chiakokhua,” who is known for predicting the next steps for tech giants, teased that the NVIDIA Ampere lineup would pack some serious firepower with double the number of its predecessor’s CUDA and Tensor cores and quadruple RT cores.

Chiakokhua has a long history of sharing bombshells in the tech community. In a recent tweet, Chiakokhua shared a diagram of EPYC processors and revealed that AMD would use a chiplet design for its new Zen design. The Twitter user also touted NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as an absolute world-tearing graphics card, with specs that go beyond anything that previous rumors have claimed.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti’s predecessor, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, packs 4352 CUDA cores, 544 Tensor cores, and 68 RT cores. It also sports clocks that are low on the Turing GPU, with NVIDIA’s specs necessitating a 1545 MHz boost clock. According to Chiakokhua, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti’s specs will be far more insane than that.

With up to 8192 CUDA cores, 256 RT cores, and up to 1024 Tensor cores, the upcoming RTX 3080 Ti graphics card will offer almost double the 2080 Ti’s CUDA and Tensor cores, effectively easing the performance drop observed when enabling DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games and overcoming the Tensor core bottleneck previously observed on NVIDIA Turing cards at higher frame rates.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is also rumored to sport 16 Gbps GDDR6 VRAM and 1750 MHz boost clocks, a significant upgrade from the RTX 2080 Ti’s 1545 MHz boost clock.

Rumor has it that the Nvidia Ampere graphics cards will start launching in Q3 2020, which makes sense, as manufacturers of aftermarket graphics card will want to clear out their stock to make room for their new offers. The launch of the Nvidia Ampere will reportedly follow in the footsteps of the 2018 Turing launch, where the initial lineup will include the RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3080 and RTX 3070.
