Is the RTX 30xx Super / Ti already in the tube?

Is the RTX 30xx Super / Ti already in the tube?

While we’ve only just had official confirmation of the RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070, already many leads seem to suggest a faster than expected upgrade of the range.

First of all, it is a leak coming from the Lenovo data sheet about a future reference of its range of Legion PC, which clearly evokes the existence and the next arrival of an RTX 3070Ti.

An RTX 3070Ti to meet AMD?

If we put aside the idea of an internal data entry error at Lenovo, this RTX 3070Ti would have 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, twice the amount of the 3070 presented on September 1st. Some go further and indicate that the GPU used could be different or that the GDDR6 would also have a higher speed. On paper, there is indeed a significant performance jump between the RTX 3070 and the RTX 3080. The 3070Ti could come in between…in case the competition wants to take care of the 599-699€ price segment.

The GGDR6X has some underfoot: a RTX 3090 Ti/Super in line of sight?

The monstrous RTX 3090 could also quickly receive a vitamin boost. At least that’s what some people seem to think.

Micron has already confirmed that it has 21 Gbps GDDR6X chips available for early 2021. The company has also indicated that it has 2GB / 16GB GDDR6X memory in the pipeline. The assumption here is that Nvidia will inevitably want to switch to Micron’s 2GB memory modules as soon as they become available in volume. Indeed, by using these chips, Nvidia will be able to create a 24 GB RTX 3090 with half as many memory chips. This new configuration could allow Nvidia to lower the PGP of the card by powering fewer memory modules. Finally, the increase of the bandwidth could also make it possible to still gain in performances (one would then obtain 1 To / s of bandwidth with these new GDDR6X).

Of course, we could also imagine that the gain in maturity of Samsung’s 8nm process would also allow the brand to push its GPU a little more. But the immediate interest would clearly be to decrease the TGP and to simplify the construction of the board (the 24 chips requiring a PCB with ram on both sides).

If the hypothesis of a change of memory configuration for the RTX 3090 seems credible in order to simplify the PCB and reduce power consumption, it seems unlikely that these changes will happen before the end of Q1 2021.
