Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

NVIDIA decided to delay the launch of memory upgraded RTX 30 series

It looks like there won’t be SUPER series, or the rumored RTX 30 SKUs with more memory anytime soon. 

According to Igor Wallossek who gathered information from multiple sources, board partners are currently not expecting December 17th to be the announcement date of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB model. This card was supposedly launching on January 11th but has now been postponed till after Chinese New Year (February 1st). The card is supposedly a direct response to the Intel Arc Alchemist series, with the top desktop SKU equipped with 16GB memory. Previous rumors have put this upcoming card on RTX 3070 Ti performance level.

Interestingly, Igor also had problems confirming the new RTX 3080 12GB SKU. This card was originally planned for the December 17th announcement as well, but for the past few weeks, NVIDIA has not provided an update for board partners on this specific variant of RTX 3080. Igor speculates that this model might not happen soon, considering RTX 3080 10GB is selling like hotcakes.

Finally, the report corroborates on RTX 3090 Ti flagship GPU still on schedule for CES 2022 announcement and January 27th launch. This card is likely to be very expensive so the component shortage mentioned as the main reason for RTX 3070 Ti 16GB delay, is likely not as important – a lot fewer cards need to be made for this enthusiast segment.
