Finally, a manufacturing partner of Nvidia has confirmed the existence of the RTX 3080 Ti. This is ASUS, which reveals two graphics cards from the ROG STRIX line: ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-O20G-GAMING (factory overclocked) and ROG-STRIX-RTX3080TI-20G-GAMING (with reference clocks).
Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti, ASUS confirms the existence of this GPU
The confirmation does not come in the form of any advertisement, but is listed on the ASUS website within the line PLEASE STRIX. As we see, RTX 3080 Ti would have 20 GB memory, which is what the various rumors had told us in recent weeks.
In this way, other specifications could have been confirmed as well. The RTX 3080 Ti would have 10496 CUDA clouds, which are the same CUDA nuclei of the RTX 3090. It seems that the RTX 3080 Ti will simply offer less VRAM memory, from 24GB to 20GB, and carry a lower TDP. This data suggests that it will come with lower clock speeds compared to the RTX 3090.

The release date for this graphics card is not clear, but it is the month of February. Nvidia would have delayed the launch that was scheduled for January 2021, according to rumors.
The listing also confirms that ASUS is planning to launch the RTX 3060 with 12GB of VRAM memory. We are not surprised by the existence of this model and it is a fact that we will have a model below the current RTX 3060 Ti in the mid-range. The launch of this graphics card is set for the end of January. We will keep you informed.
