We continue with the rumors, touching again the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which would arrive in a new variant using the top-of-range GDDR6 memory chips, and this implies reaching 16 Gbps (16 GHz), compared to the 14 Gbps of the current model.

Although the source that revealed the information to Videocardz is reliable, but we must also recognize that this news does not surprise us at all, becaGeForce RTX 2080 Tise in the past Nvidia made the same movement in several models, as in the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 Gbps or the GeForce GTX 1060 9 Gbps. What’s more, Samsung already gave these GDDR6 @ 16 Gbps memory chips to Nvidia last August for their Nvidia Quadro GPUs.

As expected, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with 11 GB of GDDR6 @ 16 Gbps memory will help improve graphics performance at high resolutions, as the bandwidth would grow to 704 GB / s compared to 616 GB / s of the original model. On the other hand, it will also increase the price of the graphics card even more. So the new flagship graphics card will put some extra performance to increase the difference compared to the AMD Radeon VII.
