Earlier this month, NVIDIA launched a 12GB variant of the GeForce RTX 3080. It is basically a slightly upgraded version of the original RTX 3080 with additional 2GB GDDR6X memory but there are a few tweaks including a new GA102-220 die with more CUDA cores, RT Cores, and TMUs, although Memory Bus Width remains at 384-bit.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12GB Pricing and Availability
Pricing is set around USD 1,249 internationally given the rarity of stocks and the global chip shortage. In the Philippines, the card is still yet to become widely available but some retailers have already began offering aftermarket cards from overseas starting at PhP 88,850 like in the case of the Colorful iGame RTx 3080 Ti Vulcan OC-V 12GB we spotted.
NVIDIA or its partners has yet to post official listings for the RTX 3080 12GB. Given the current situation, however, it is likely that the card will rest between the PhP 80,000 to PhP 90,000 range.
