The GeForce RTX 3080 is currently one of the most popular graphics cards that are commercially available. Now a leak reveals that the graphics card could get an upgrade, which could mainly solve the main criticism.
The Geforce RTX 3080 from Nvidia is currently one of the most popular graphics cards that want to buy gamers:
The graphics card offers high performance and 4k gaming with raytracing is possible.
The card offers a very good price-performance ratio for your RRP of 729 euros.
Currently the RTX 3080 lies with double non-binding price.
But there was criticism of the graphics card after the release, because in addition to the volume, testers criticized mainly the to small video memory of the new graphics card. But that could change in the future how a leader wanted to have found out.
According to Leak, there will soon be an RTX 3080 with 12 GB video memory
What s for an upgrade? This is reported at least videocardz.com (via videocardz.com). Here is the speech that the manufacturers of NVIDIA graphics cards have been informed that there will soon be a new version of the RTX 3080.
Specifically, there is talk that the RTX 3080 will get an upgrade to 12 GB video memory. In the context, the maximum bandwidth is likely to increase. However, the general performance of the card and the computing targets should not change. Here Nvidia has now published the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which offers more power than the graphics card without TI.
When should the upgrade come? According to Leak, the RTX 3080 with 12 GB video memory in January 2022 should come into the trade. At the same time, there is evidence that the previous RTX 3080 model could disappear from trade.
Incidentally, the rumors are not brand new, because shortly after the release it had given rumors that NVIDIA thinks about a 20 GB video memory for the RTX 3080.
Many want a RTX 3080 with more video memory
In our test assembly to GeForce RTX 3080, we had already reported that some testers had criticized that Nvidia only equips its new RTX 3080 with 10 GB video memory.
For some explain that the 10 GB is not future-proof at the RTX 3080. Already there are games like Horizon: Zero Dawn or Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which have a high memory needs. And RayTracing is also a technique set to an increased memory requirement.
Already there are some games where RayTracing 8 GB video memory represents the absolute minimum. And in the future, the memory requirement should grow rather than becoming smaller.
What awaits you 2022? Even though the video card prices remain very high in the coming year, there are still some exciting news.
Because the manufacturers are already in the background to prepare the next graphics card generation. Already first Leaks report that the GeForce RTX 4090 is to be twice as fast as the current RTX 3090. But when these graphics cards come, but we do not know yet because Nvidia has not yet introduced a graphics card.
