Nvidia RTX 3080 SUPER Tech News Today

In 2020, Nvidia launched the first batch of the RTX 30 series GPUs. Now, it seems that the tech giant plans to further expand the series. Just like the previous generation's SUPER cards, Nvidia is planning to release RTX 3070 SUPER and RTX 3080 SUPER variants.

One reason why Nvidia did it is due to AMD's RDNA2 GPUs. Unlike Nvidia, AMD has chosen to beef up its new range of GPUs with an ample amount of VRAM. For instance, the RTX 3070 came with only 8 GB of VRAM, and the RTX 3080 came with 10 GB. For modern standards, most gamers believe that 8GB of VRAM isn't enough to play upcoming titles at maximum settings. On the contrary, AMD's RX6900XT, RX6800XT, and RX6800 GPUs feature 16GB of VRAM, making them an attractive option.

There have been rumors as well suggesting Nvidia's possible release of RTX 3080Ti and RTX 3060 GPUs. Plus, several leaks reported that Nvidia canceled the RTX 3070Ti and RTX 3080Ti several times, and we may have to wait for a while before team Green makes an official announcement regarding the ambitious GPUs. Or, you can also try the RTX 3060Ti if you don't want to wait longer. Regardless, the release of RTX 3070 SUPER and RTX 3080 SUPER will not affect other planned releases by Nvidia.

While leaksters are certain that the company is going for RTX 3070 SUPER and RTX 3080 SUPER, the specifications of the GPUs remain a mystery. Yet some leaksters are suggesting that the variants will launch with bigger VRAM. One report claimed that Nvidia chose to stick with 10GB of VRAM for RTX 3080 due to the limited availability of GDDR6X VRAM. Things may change once VRAM availability isn't an issue anymore.

Both RTX 3070 SUPER and RTX 3080 SUPER are still rumored products in Nvidia's pipeline. If these become official, let's hope that Nvidia fans will like the improvements.
