As previously reported the RTX 3080 Ti got delayed from a mid April release to a Mid May release. Which coincides with the launch of the 3070 Ti in mid May. A Facebook user Lok LOK. Was able to get some photographs of shipping boxes. Which looks like it contains the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X 12G OC. This helps confirm the previous rumors that the RTX 3080 is indeed being released this May.

Now this wasn’t the only card in this shipment. There were a number of different MSI cards being sent into Los Angeles. From Nvidia’s RTX 3090, to the much older  Radeon RX 580 Armor 8G OC. It is important to note that the Radeon 580 is still a fantastic ethereum mining card. Which due to current demand isn’t that surprising to see it along with this shipment.

As for specs the RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to have 10,240 Cuda Cores, 80 RT Cores and 320 Tensor cores. As spotted in the images there will be 12 GB of memory and not the rumored 20 GB. The memory chips will be using GDDR6X at 19 Gbps. with a 384-bit memory interface. Remember that this is not confirmed and is currently rumors.

For as long as I can remember, I had always had an interest in computers and games. It all started with the SNES and moving on to the Playstation 1. Eventually this passion evolved into PC gaming. With playing my first competitive game being Battlefield 2142 and then moving into COD4 Promod. I have always been a keen PC builder and enthusiast but couldn’t afford to go after this passion until later in life.
