Nvidia has reportedly pushed back its RTX 3080 Ti announcement

Nvidia, once again, is taking its time to announce something that we all know exists. Rumors have swirled around the RTX 3080 Ti for a couple of months, with leaks about the card’s specs last month. If that wasn’t enough, a few days ago an MSI RTX 3080 Ti was even discovered in the wild. At this point, the RTX 3080 Ti is essentially confirmed, but Nvidia is still coy. According to VideoCardz.com, the announcement of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has been delayed for two full weeks. Instead of revealing the 3080 Ti on May 18, the company will announce the card on May 31.

That new date may be simply for convenience. Reports say that the announcement of the RTX 3070 Ti will arrive on May 31. Moving the 3080 Ti to the same date could be one way to ensure consumers are aware of all the products they can choose from. VideoCardz has also reported that the embargo date for the RTX 3080 Ti revisions will come before the embargo for the RTX 3070 Ti. The reported embargo date for 3070 Ti is June 9, while 3080 Ti is June 2.

What will consumers get from the RTX 3080 Ti?

We previously reported that the RTX 3080 Ti will likely be on the more expensive side of Nvidia’s 30 Series lineup, costing $ 1099 USD. However, that cost can be offset in terms of performance, which will naturally fall somewhere between that of an RTX 3080 and an RTX 3090. When it launches, the RTX 3080 Ti will come with 10,240 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR6X memory, and a base clock of 1365 MHz. Compared to the RTX 3090, which has 10,496 CUDA cores, 24 GB of GDDR6X memory, and a base clock of 1395, the 3080 Ti presents a more consumer-friendly and future-proof option for Players.

Of course, all this information should be taken with caution. Until we have an official announcement for the RTX 3080 Ti, we can’t say for sure what comes with it or what its MSRP will be. Not that Nvidia’s expected price really matters, as demand and eventually shortages of the 3080 Ti will drive its price up.
