Hopefully they announce it by November and be released by December. They did say 3080 is the new flagship though which makes me think if they're even gonna release a TI variant, i'm just hoping the rumours about 20 GB 3080 is true
I'm gonna say they will announce "big news" around the time big navi is released officially, probably release it in small quantities within a month. I'm guessing $1000. High enough to distinguish itself from 3080, low enough from the 3090. Once benchmarks are out, we'll be able to predict 3080ti performance. It should be closer to the 3090 than we expect. Probably 90%-95% of the performance of the 3090 with half the ram I'd wager.
