NVIDIA's RTX 30 series graphics cards will continue to expand this year, with new products at both high-end and low-end,The long rumored RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is on the wayIt will be released soon.

According to the previous disclosure, RTX 3080 ti is priced at US $999, which is consistent with RX 6900 XT's overseas pricing (BOC 7999 yuan), and will be put on sale in May.

In terms of specifications,RTX 3080 ti is expected to reduce the number of stream processors to 10240 and the video memory to 384 bit 12gb gddr6x.

We all know that in the current situation, the proposed price of RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is meaningless, and ultimately depends on the actual price, which is closely related to its mining capacity. After all, RTX 3080 graphics card now costs 20000 yuan.

More importantly, NVIDIA may adopt very strict restrictions this time. Previously, the RTX 3060 graphics card was limited to 50% of the mining performance. However, after a series of suffocating operations, NVIDIA itself untied the driver restrictions, leading to this becoming a laughing stock.

On RTX 3080 Ti, NVIDIA will learn a lesson this time,According to the latest news, the manufacturer has received a new version of RTX 3080 Ti, the core code is ga102-202 or ga102-302, which is different from the previous QS version.

The hardware ID of the new RTX 3080 Ti core is different from that before,In this way, you can't brush firmware casually, so you can prevent mining restrictions from being easily cracked, and greatly improve the threshold.

Judging from the current information, NVIDIA has made up its mind to ban mining this time. On the one hand, it may hope to reserve some market for game graphics cards, which is not as excessive as it is now.

Of course, the more important aspect may be Lao Huang's selfishness. Before, he was not enthusiastic about restricting the mining of game cards because his CMP cards were not listed. Now CMP cards are hot selling. In Q1, the original 50 million yuan has been sold for 150 million US dollars. The follow-up supply keeps up with the market. It's a good thing for him to sell mine cards. This market can't be missed.
