As reported by the renowned insider kopite7kimi, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, like the recently launched GeForce RTX 3060, will also be limited to 50% to mine the cryptocurrency Ethereum (the one used to mine with graphics cards).

The news shouldn’t surprise us too much, as NVIDIA hinted that future versions of the RTX 3000 might have hash rate limiter via firmware of GPUs. NVIDIA has recently provided GeForce RTX 3080 Ti BIOS update to AIB partners. Which Kopite has not released yet, but revealed that this feature will also apply for (as it now appears on the roadmap) the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to launch with the GA102 GPU with 10,240 CUDA cores and 12GB of memory at a speed of 19Gbps ​​and a 384-bit bus. Previously it was going to have 20 GBs at 320 bits, but obviously the plans are now changed, or if they realized that 20GB doesnt’t really make any sense for gaming because actual VRM utilization and VRM reserved by game is totally different thing.

The Geforce RTX 3080 Ti is still scheduled to launch in April-2021, but it’s worth noting that NVIDIA has changed the date three times. Initially the plan was to release it in December, then in January, but the current schedule has not changed since late January.
