Nvidia has officially introduced the new RTX 3080 Ti GPU, which is based on Ampere architecture like other entries in the RTX 30-series. It is the successor to RTX 3080 which supposedly outperforms the previous generation RTX 2080 Ti by 1.5 times. So, let’s look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in Nepal.
Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti Overview:
Here, RTX 3080 Ti appears to be quite similar to its predecessors, with comparable designs and port selection. The primary distinction here is the increase in power consumption and VRAM capacity. It brings 12GB of GDDR6X memory, which is 2GB more than the RTX 3080 and half of what the RTX 3090 has.
It has the GA102-225 GPU, 10,240 CUDA cores, 80 RT cores (specialized ray tracing cores), and 384-bit memory bus with 912GB/s memory bandwidth.
Similarly, the 3080 Ti, like other GPUs in the RTX 30 series, supports ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS, Nvidia Reflex, Resizable BAR, etc. The company has also incorporated a restriction for cryptocurrency miners, which was first introduced earlier this month on RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti cards.
vs RTX 3090
On paper, the new GPU is more or less similar to the RTX 3090, but with half the VRAM. Aside from that, the RTX 3080 Ti requires the same amount of power as the RTX 3090. Nvidia recommends a 750-watt power supply, and the card can draw up to 350 watts of power. Moreover, it has a 1.36GHz base and a 1.66GHz boost clock.
The insufficiency problem
It’s certainly impressive to see NVIDIA offering even more graphics cards at a time when the worldwide chipset issue remains a major worry. By lowering crypto-mining capabilities on its RTX 30-series models, the company has been attempting to get its GPUs into the hands of gamers. However, the global chip shortage means there’s not much Nvidia can solely do about it.
Likewise, as aforementioned, Nvidia has attempted to offer 3080 Ti with similar features to RTX 3090, which is excellent on one hand. Still, we remain pessimistic that Nvidia will be able to meet the huge demand for the RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti Price in Nepal & Availability
The Founder’s Edition of Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be available for purchase from June 3 for the price of USD 1,199. But once again, we doubt anyone can get their hands on one at that price. We expect the price of Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (Founder’s Edition) in Nepal to be NPR 200,000 when it launches here.
|Nvidia GeForce GPU||Price in the US||Price in Nepal (Expected)|
|RTX 3080 Ti (Founder’s Edition)||USD 1,199||NPR 200,000|
