We are just 2 days away from the launch of the new Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics cards and leaks are coming in left right and centre. We have already seen several leaked shots of none reference design cards from MSI, this has now been followed up with some Pallit based designs.
The new design leaked for Palit includes the RTX 2080 Ti GAMING PRO, which offers users a black, silver and gold cooler with two large fans. The 2080 version is largely identical just with different colours.
It is looking very likely that NVIDIA will release the Ti-based model around the same time as the standard model, and this generation will have the same memory as the previous one, just with much faster memory.
On top of this, the MSI RTX 2080 DUKE has also been leaked with a triple fan layout with black metal backplate and fans that extends beyond the end of the GPU's PCB.
With the GTX 2080 Ti reportedly shipping with 11GB of GDDR6 memory, we could assume that the graphics card would be using a 352-bit memory bus, a cut-down version of the 384-bit bus that is present in the Quadro RTX 8000/6000. Using the same logic we could also assume that the RTX 2080 is based on the same silicon as Nvidia's Quadro RTX 5000, which employs a 256-bit memory bus, an ideal size for a GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
These specifications give the RTX 2080 Ti 256 fewer CUDA cores than Nvidia's Quadro RTX 6000 and 1GB less VRAM.
The RTX 2080 has 128 fewer CUDA cores than Nvidia's Quadro RTX 5000, which is 384 more than Nvidia's GTX 1080 graphics card, a 15% boost in CUDA cores over its immediate predecessor. If this is combined with clock speed (or performance per clock) increases, Nvidia could potentially achieve performance improvements that are north of 25%
