As the saying goes another day another delayed release of the RTX 3000 series card. Well, this might not be a saying but at this point, the story is starting to get old.  Nvidia has been playing catch up since the release of the 3000’s with limited stock and rising crypto prices have pushed their manufacturing capacity to the limit. Nvidia is rumored to be delaying the release of their upcoming RTX 3080 Ti. 

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.

A report for ITHome has stated that the launch of the Geforce RTX 3080 Ti is being pushed from mid-April to mid-May. Which will coincide with the launch of the RTX 3070 Ti. Meaning this might not be so much a limited capacity issue but Nvidia wanting to launch the two products together. Generally, Nvidia does launch products together giving the 3000 series a summer refresh.

So now we can expect to see the two cards in May. The RTX 3080 Ti 12 GB will be packing 10,240 CUDA cores and a  912 G/S memory bandwidth or 864 GB/s depending on the source.  The 3080 ti should also come with a 1,400 MHz base clock and boost at around 1,700 MHz. The RTX 3070 Ti will have 6,144 CUDA cores and a memory bandwidth of around 608 GB/s.

The RTX 3080 has some pretty impressive states to look forward too. If 2020 has proved anything, when it comes to the GPU market. These are probably going to be hard to find even with a delayed release.

For as long as I can remember, I had always had an interest in computers and games. It all started with the SNES and moving on to the Playstation 1. Eventually this passion evolved into PC gaming. With playing my first competitive game being Battlefield 2142 and then moving into COD4 Promod. I have always been a keen PC builder and enthusiast but couldn’t afford to go after this passion until later in life.
