NVIDIA RTX 3080 12GB

 
NVIDIA has launched a new RTX 3080 based on the Ampere GA102 GPU. But if the name is not new, the specifications are a bit different from the original RTX 3080 launched in September 2020. This new RTX 3080 has more GPU cores, more VRAM and a wider memory interface bus:

  • GPU: GA120-220, base clock: 1440MHz, boost clock: 1710MHz
  • Shader cores: 8960 (original RTX 3080: 8704)
  • Compute units: 70 (128 cores / CU) (original RTX 3080: 68)
  • RT cores: 70 (original RTX 3080: 68)
  • Tensor cores: 280 (original RTX 3080: 272)
  • Texture units: 280 (original RTX 3080: 272)
  • ROPs: 96
  • Memory: 12GB GDDR6X, 384-bit interface (original RTX 3080: 10GB GDDR6X, 320-bit)
  • TGP (total graphics power): 350W (original RTX 3080: 320W)

A new graphics driver has been published today for the launch of this new RTX 3080:
GeForce 511.17 WHQL

This driver comes with the following devices IDs:

NVIDIA_DEV.2206 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080"
NVIDIA_DEV.220A = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080"
NVIDIA_DEV.2216 = "NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080"
