NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch pushed back by a week

We received a full launch schedule on the upcoming RTX 30 Ti graphics cards.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti announcement has been postponed by two weeks. The original date of May 18th has been changed to May 31st. We have confirmed that NVIDIA is planning to announce both the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti on the same day. However, product reviews will be split, with RTX 3080 Ti being introduced on June 2nd and RTX 3070 Ti reviews going live on June 9th.

We do not have product launch (availability) dates yet, but those embargoes are usually lifted on the same day as reviews or a day later (more common now).

NVIDIA is currently shipping its GA10X-XX2 GPUs designated internally as LHR (Lite Hash Rate). Those should become available to customers in the coming weeks. The plan is to completely refresh the whole lineup with LHR/3080Ti/3070Ti series in the next 2 months.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will feature GA102-225 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores enabled. This model will offer 12GB GDDR6X memory, which is indeed just 2GB more than RTX 3080, but thanks to the wider bus of 384-bit the maximum bandwidth will increase by 152GB/s.

The RTX 3070 Ti, might be one of the most interesting cards in the NVIDIA lineup yet. This is the first Ampere gaming card to feature full GPU specs, in this case, the GA104-400. The RTX 3070 Ti will offer 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB GDDR6X memory. While 8GB is indeed less than RTX 3060 with 12GB, the RTX 3070 Ti allegedly gets GDDR6X modules, which would provide a bandwidth increase of 160 GB/s over RTX 3070 non-TI. It seems that the RTX3080Ti / 3070 TI is all about the memory upgrade.

We received this update shortly after our colleagues at Overclocking.com were also able to confirm the June release. While this is the fifth update to AIBs on the launch schedule of both cards, it is actually the first time NVIDIA confirmed the exact dates of both SKUs. So yes, it seems to be final, but at this point, we can’t promise it won’t change again.
