A sharp-eyed Redditor spotted a listing on PNY’s website for its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Overclocked XLR8 Edition for $1,000. The leak, which has since been taken down, also listed specs for the GeForce RTX 2080 8GB XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition.
The cards come bearing the Turing architecture. According to the listings, the $1,000 RTX 2080 Ti comes equipped with 4,352 CUDA cores and 11GB of GDDR6 with a 352-bit memory bus that provides 616 GB/s of throughput. PNY listed boost clocks at 1,545 MHz. The card is fed with two 8-pin connectors. However, it is also possible that the $1,000 price tag for the 2080 Ti is merely a placeholder. This same model also comes as a 1080 Ti that retails for $899, which potentially gives us an idea of the price deltas we can expect between generations.

The RTX 2080 comes packing 2944 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 with a 256-bit memory bus that pushes 448 GB/s of bandwidth. Boost speeds weigh in at 1,710 MHz. The card is fed with 8-pin and 6-pin power connectors. PNY purportedly listed this model for $800, but the listing was removed before we could grab a screenshot. Again, this is likely a placeholder.
As expected given Nvidia’s recent announcements, the cards support AI and real-time ray tracing for games. Pictures of MSI’s forthcoming models leaked earlier today, so it’s clear the official launch is near.
