A user on Hardwareluxxs Forums has actually validated the presence of NVIDIAs Ampere GA102-250 GPU SKU which was formerly anticipated to be featured on the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. It was identified when the forum member took apart his GeForce RTX 3090, only to reveal that the GPU had actually at first been identified as the GA102-250 SKU instead of the GA102-300 which is the official SKU used on the RTX 3090.
NVIDIAs Rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU, The Ampere GA102-250, Spotted on A GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Card
The NVIDIA GA102-250-KD-A1 GPU just existed in the rumor mill today we can confirm that this is indeed a real chip. Prepared for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, it looks like NVIDIA chose that they could use an additional cut-down SKU to power the upcoming flagship while this SKU can be used for the GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. You can clearly see that the GA102-250-KD-A1 GPU label has been cut-off and rather, its been repurposed as the GA102-300-A1 SKU. Whats intriguing is that the GA102-250-KD-A1 was expected to function 78 SM systems allowed for a total of 9984 CUDA cores whereas the RTX 3090 with its GA102-300-A1 GPU packs 82 SMs or 10496 cores.
We can not say for sure if the 250 alternative deals the same performance/power limitations as the 300 variant however given that it has a lower naming scheme, one could expect it to be a lower bin than the basic GA102-300 SKU. Again, we do not understand the level to which NVIDIA is repurposing its GA102-250 chips to GA102-300 however given that they exist and this is out now, we can anticipate more users to discover this out by themselves.
NVIDIAs GeForce RTX 3090 has been found making use of the GA102-250 GPU, the as soon as reported SKU for the RTX 3080 Ti. (Image Credits: HardwareLuxx).
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on the other hand has seen a spec-change and will now be using the Ampere GA102-225-A1 GPU SKU. Following are the expected specs of the upcoming RTX 30 series flagship.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB Rumored Graphics Card Specifications.
NVIDIAs GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB FE (Founders Edition) graphics card is expected to include the PG132-SKU18 PCB style and the GA102-225-KD-A1 graphics core. The GA102-225 GPU has actually also altered since the last time we saw them and will now include 10240 CUDA cores within a total of 80 SM systems. Because the main core configuration is entirely brand name new, the formerly leaked clocks & & TMU/ROP counts must now be dismissed.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB Enthusiast Gaming Graphics Card Reportedly Pushed Back To MayAs for memory, the card will feature 12 GB of GDDR6X memory. Unlike the 19.5 Gbps speeds of the RTX 3090, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is stated to maintain the very same memory speeds as the RTX 3080 at 19 Gbps. Since we are getting 12 GB memory, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be utilizing a 384-bit bus interface which equals a total bandwidth of 912 GB/s. So while we see an 8 GB VRAM reduction over the previous specification, the larger bus interface should drive higher memory bandwidth.
The TGP for the card is set to be the very same as the RTX 3080 at 320 Watts. Thats definitely needed to feed the additional cores so NVIDIA may have to enhance the clocks a bit here. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is expected to release in mid-April for an MSRP of around $999 United States. The card is reported for launch in May.
