When we want to know if we’re bringing new graphics cards to market, Gigabyte is almost always one of the best sources as it has its new models certified with the EEC much earlier than any other brand.
For this very reason, we have now learned that NVIDIA is even preparing to introduce two new versions of its top-end RTX 30 graphics cards. We’re talking about the new RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 Ti, the first with 12 GB of memory and the second with an incredible 16 GB.
Interestingly, the component and peripheral giant Gigabyte has also confirmed the existence of a mid-range card on the AMD side, the new Radeon RX 6500 XT.
Gigabyte made “leaks” again! RTX 3080 with 12GB, 3070 Ti with 16GB, etc …
Therefore, Gigabyte has 10 new designs for the RTX 3080, 7 for the RTX 3080 Ti and even 3 more for the new RX 6500 from AMD Radeon. Obviously, all versions certified here bring 12 GB of VRAM memory for the RTX 3080 (before it was “only” 10 GB) and 16 GB for the RTX 3070 Ti (before it was 8 GB).
However, the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT comes in at just 4GB and is a card that tends to focus on the lower end of the graphics market.
So we’re talking about 20 graphics cards, all of which are separated by the known areas of Gigabyte (Aorus, Eagle and Vision).
As for the launch itself, it’s very likely that all cards will finally be announced as early as next month at CES 2022. But that doesn’t answer a question … Why does the RTX 3070 Ti, which is in the lower price range, have more VRAM than the RTX 3080? Apparently, it has to do with some manufacturing issues NVIDIA has on its lines. Or some limitation in the original design of the RTX 3080.
Besides, what do you think of all of this? Still on the market and looking for a graphics card? Or are you waiting for the new generation? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.
