“Air Graphics” RTX 3080 Ti is officially released, and the mining performance is still limited.

On June 1, NVIDIA gave an online keynote speech during the Computex 2021 in Taipei and officially released the new RTX 30 series graphics cards: RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti.

RTX 3080 Ti is positioned as a brand new flagship graphics card for games, with 10240 built-in stream processors and 12GB GDDR6X video memory. Compared with the RTX 3090, the fastest gaming flagship of the 30 series, the RTX 3080 Ti configuration will be slightly lower.

It is worth noting that the memory bit width of the RTX 3080 Ti is 384-bit, which is exactly the same as the RTX 3090. And judging from the comparison chart of 30 series graphics cards released by NVIDIA's official website, in fact, the new RTX 3080 Ti has a lot of parity with the RTX 3090. It seems a bit of the meaning of RTX 3090 replacement, which should also prove the market positioning of RTX 3080 Ti: a transitional product between RTX 3090 and RTX 3080.

In terms of price, RTX3080 Ti is much more affordable than RTX 3090's 10,000 yuan price. The limited release price of the FE version is $1,199 (approximately RMB 7,640) and will go on sale on June 3.

RTX 3070 Ti with a lower configuration, built-in 8704 stream processors in the core, equipped with 8GB GDDR6X memory, and the same bandwidth as RTX 3070 is 256-bit. The FE version of the RTX 3070 Ti is priced at US$599 (approximately 3,800 RMB) and will go on sale on June 10.

At present, manufacturers such as MSI, Asus, Colorful, Gengsheng, GALAXY, and Yingzhong have begun to announce non-public version products. Of course, RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti not only attract attention in the gaming circle, but also in the mining circle.

In order to limit the "miner action", this year's RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti have been replaced with a new LHR logo, which means that the mining performance of the graphics card will be subject to certain restrictions. Nvidia stated that the Ethereum hash rate of the RTX 3080 Ti has been reduced, while the Ethereum hash rate of the RTX 3070 Ti has been directly cut in half. Nvidia hopes that in this way, these game graphics cards can fall into the hands of real players. It's just that even if the two graphics cards limit the mining capacity, the mining industry still remains enthusiastic about them, especially the high-end version of the RTX 3080 Ti has received more attention.

Yesterday, media reports revealed that on some e-commerce platforms in Europe and the United States, the RTX 3080 Ti has been lifted from the pre-sale ban, but the price of the graphics card has risen to RMB 16,000 to 20,000. Visually, the two graphics cards are still responsible for the 30 series of "air graphics cards". It is impossible to grab the original price, but it's okay to smell something new.
