A few days back, a report claimed that Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3080 Ti is launching on May 25, with sales starting each day afterward, the 26th. Today, however, there’s a replacement report from the Chiphell forums via IT Home, which means that the previous report was incorrect.
Although the new report still says that the RTX 3080 Ti will be a happening sale starting on May 26, the launch date of the GPU is allegedly stated as being on May 18, which may be a week before what was previously rumored. However, the report adds that the May 25 date will supposedly still be eventful because the review embargoes for the RTX 3080 Ti will lift on today.
This new report does make more sense because it is unusual for a corporation like Nvidia to start selling products (not considering pre-orders) before independent reviews are out. and reviews of Nvidia graphics cards generally go live a few weeks before the merchandise launches.
The RTX 3080 Ti is reportedly launching at an MSRP of $999. It allegedly features a cut-down GA102 chip with 10.240 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6X memory in terms of specifications. Soon then, Nvidia is additionally rumored to launch the 3070 Ti sometime in June.
The RTX 3070 Ti will supposedly feature the complete GA104 die with 6,144 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6X VRAM.
