To the surprise of many fans of computer games, Nvidia has prepared a completely new version of the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. Naturally, the novelty is intended for the most demanding fans of PC games. It is equipped with up to 12 GB of fast GDDR6X graphics memory, which of course is essential for running graphically demanding PC games.
The new GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card also differs from the current model equipped with 10 GB of graphics memory in terms of the number of CUDA graphics cores. While the current model has 8704 cores, the new model can house up to 8,960 CUDA cores. The difference is also found in the data carrier. This is now 384 bits instead of 320 bits. In practice, this means higher data throughput, from 760 GB per second to 912 GB per second.
Since the new GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card is more powerful than the current model, it is not surprising that the power consumption is also slightly higher. The novelty actually consumes up to 350 watts instead of 320 watts. This means that you will need at least a 750W power supply in your computer. The retail price of the novelty has not yet been revealed, but we believe it will not be affordable for everyone.
