- 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:
