Rumors state that Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti could be released in 2021. Some unconfirmed Ampere cars were seen in HP's OEM Nvidia GPU driver update support list. These include a non-Ti RTX 3060, an RTX 3050, an RTX 3070 Ti, and an RTX 3080 Ti.
Wow! It hasn't been even a year yet ever since they released the 2080 TI and a new graphics card is being made which is the Nvidia RTX 3080 TI. pic.twitter.com/MOyeXFN07X— Darth Vader (@CheetorPrime_YT) June 12, 2020
According to PC Games, these chips would be the cheapest GPU in the Ampere lineup once they are released in the public. On the other hand, RTX 3050 is not included in another leak coming from the graphics card manufacturer Manli.
The information registered a number of GPUs with the Eurasian Economic Commission. The leak also includes the same chipsets in HP's OEM Nvidia GPU.
Will it match AMD RX 6000?
The leaked information is still a rumor. It is advisable to wait until Nvidia confirms the release of its RTX 6000. You should remember that even if the mentioned products are included in the said databases, that doesn't mean that they'll be released soon. As of the moment, AMD and Nvidia are currently facing stock shortages.

- RTX 3090 - $1499 (50% faster than the Titan RTX)
- RTX 3080 - $699 (2x faster than the 2080)
- RTX 3070 - $499 (faster than the 2080 TI)
Prices honestly aren't too bad. They'll release starting with the 3080 on Sep 17th. #Ampere pic.twitter.com/8uzH1spPvc
However, if the rumors are true, it is expected that Nvidia will try to match AMD RX 6000's hefty 16GB of VRAM, compared to its current RTX 3080s 10GB. RTX 3080 Ti could be much cheaper than the current 3080 and 3090 since Nvidia might give it a price similar to its competitor, AMD RX 6900 XT, which costs $999.
On the other hand, RTX 3050 would become Nvidia's entry-level GPU in its RTX 30 series if the leaks are true. This chipset would have less price compared to the RTX 3060 Ti, Nvidia's cheapest car which costs only $399.
Micron could take advantage of Nvidia and AMD's stock shortage
The Motley Fool reported that Nvidia and AMD are facing a stock shortage since they can't gather a critical component that their latest GPUs need. However, the two manufacturers' problems might be good news for another company.
Micron Technology, a world leader in innovating memory and storage solutions, previously faced issues when the tech chip manufacturers' issues. Right now, the company sees the ongoing global pandemic as a blessing in disguise.
The global health issues forced many companies to shutdown or halt operations. The pandemic could also force Nvidia and AMD to raise their prices on the products they'll release, which is really good news for a could service provider.
