NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in May

According to ITHome, NVIDIA has issued an internal update on RTX 3080 Ti.

The site reports that GeForce RTX 3080 Ti which was previously expected to launch in mid-April, has now shifted to mid-May. We received a similar update on Monday, but we were not yet able to verify this information with other sources just yet. Apparently, this information is already known in Asia:

NVIDIA internally issued a new announcement that the release time of the next-generation RTX30 series model. The RTX 3080Ti 12G has been delayed again, and it is now expected to be released around mid-May.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was originally planned to launch in mid-April. The report from ITHome suggests that there is a delay of another month, a fifth delay for the ‘new 3080’ to be precise. The original model called RTX 3080 20GB was scheduled to launch in December, but NVIDIA has dropped its plans just two weeks in advance. NVIDIA has then scheduled RTX 3080 Ti 16GB to launch in January, but the plans have eventually shifted to February. Since then the SKU has received new specs, reduced CUDA core to 10240, and memory downgrade to 12GB. The final and so far the latest update is that RTX 3080 Ti would launch in May.

NVIDIA has now two cards scheduled to launch in May: RTX 3080 Ti 12GB and RTX 3070 Ti 8GB. It is unclear if the manufacturer has plans to make some kind of a special announcement. Does anyone still remember ‘it’s almost TIme’ GTX 1080 Ti teaser?. Well, a special event for these two cards would definitely seem appropriate, considering they are to represent very popular market segments.

Next month NVIDIA will have its Graphics Technology Conference (GTC 2021), where its CEO Jensen Huang will deliver a keynote. Historically speaking NVIDIA does not unveil client products such as GeForce at GTC. With RTX 3080 Ti being delayed again, one should not expect any updates on this SKU at the conference.
