Among the three RTX 30 series video cards released in the early morning of yesterday, the RTX 3090 is directly equipped with 24GB of memory, but the RTX 3080 graphics card has only 10GB of memory, and the gap is very large.

In NVIDIA's product layout,RTX 3080 graphics card uses 8704 stream processors, core acceleration frequency is 1.71ghz, 320 bit 10Gb gddr6x memory.

The output interface is equipped with three HDMI 2.1 and one DisplayPort 1.4, which supports four screen output.


In the overall specification of RTX 3080, other aspects are very good and powerful, but the video memory capacity has caused many players' dissatisfaction, because it involves the problem of how to look at RTX 3080 positioning.

On the surface, it replaces the RTX 2080 graphics card, which costs $699 and is equipped with 8GB gddr6 video memory,RTX 3080 this time or conscience upgrade, do not increase the price also more 2GB memory.

However, many players think that RTX 3080 ti is the benchmark of RTX 3080 Ti, because RTX 3090 is actually the Titan graphics card of this generation. In this way, 10GB video memory is 1GB less than 11gb of RTX 2080 ti.

What's more, the RTX 3090 video card went on 24GB this time. As a result, the RTX 3080 directly came to 10GB. The gap between the two graphics cards is too big.

This explanation is quite reasonable. However, from 10GB to 24GB, we all know that there will be products to fill the gap in the future. A new card of 16GB or 20GB will be introduced.
