Initially delayed from January to February, it seems that the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti has been postponed once again, this time ‘indefinitely’. Besides the RTX 3080 Ti, an alleged refresh of the RTX 30 series SKUs has also been put on hold.
According to GamersNexus’ sources, the reason behind Nvidia’s decision is the lack of GPU supply to meet the incredible demand currently surrounding high-end components. Once supply eventually meets demand – whenever that may be – Nvidia is expected to resume the development of RTX 3080T i and the RTX 30 series refresh SKUs.
As per the rumours regarding the RTX 3080 Ti, this graphics card should be powered by the GA102-GPU and feature 20GB of GDDR6X memory clocked at 19Gbps across a 320-bit memory bus. Allegedly featuring 10496 CUDA cores, 82 RT cores, 328 Tensor cores, the RTX 3080 Ti GPU is expected to feature a 1635MHz boost clock and a 320W TDP design.
Expected to continue at least throughout Q1, the GPU shortage has been quite frustrating for most people. The stock of the RTX 30 series graphics cards has been very low since launch, but Nvidia isn’t alone in this.. AMD’s latest GPUs have also suffered stock issues, with no end for them on sight.
