That is correct, 12 GB! Familiarize yourself to the GeForce RTX 3080 Sumprim X 12GB and revel in the stillness. Join us as we examine the all-new GeForce RTX 3080, a refresh model that features increased memory and even faster-rendering performance. We put MSI’s Suprim X revision to the test. And you’re aware of what that entails: complete silence and enthusiast performance levels. NVIDIA’s refresh RTX 3080 graphics cards include increased graphics RAM and memory bus width. Additionally, the number of shader cores has been increased to 8960, up from 8704 on the RTX 3080 10GB. The GA-102 chip will remain the GPU of choice for the card. A 384-bit memory bus width increase gives the card 912 GB/s of bandwidth, which is comparable to the RTX 3080 Ti (which had 760 GB/s). The GeForce RTX 3080 12GB will have a thermal design power of 340-350W, which is similar to the thermal design power of the RTX 3080 Ti despite having more cores but the same memory configuration.
