Nvidia has reportedly set a launch date for its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti as well as a launch timeframe for its GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards. According to HKEPC the products are expected to be unveiled in late May and early June. But as this is just a rumor a healthy dose of scepticism is required until we get official details from Nvidia.
It is claimed that Nvidia intends to release its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on May 25, 2021, according to an HKEPC report that cites sources with knowledge of the matter. The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is rumored to launch sometime in early June. Meanwhile, it is unclear whether the new boards will be available at launch.
There is no second source to corroborate the report and since the information is strictly unofficial, it may be inaccurate. Again, take it with a grain of salt.
Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is rumored to be based on the company's GA102 graphics processor with 10,240 CUDA cores. The card is said to feature a 384-bit memory interface and carry 12GB of GDDR6X memory. The price of the unit is expected to be $999 or $1,099, but performance of the product will be very close to Nvidia's GeForce RTX 3090 that carries a $1,499 price tag.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is expected to be powered by Nvidia's GA104 GPU with 6,144 CUDA cores and a 256-bit interface that will be used for 8GB of 19Gbps GDDR6X memory. At present it is unclear how significantly the 'Titanium' RTX 3070 Ti will outperform the regular RTX 3070 model, but higher memory bandwidth will certainly provide an improvement in high resolutions. MSRP of the product is also unclear, but presumably it should land between the 3070 and 3080.
Not that any GPU launched this year will stay in stock for any reasonable amount of time.
I kinda do. Been wanting a new GPU for a while. I skipped the 20 series, and now my 1080tis are dying. I'm still leaning more towards the 3090 though. Not sure if 12GB of VRAM is enough for future proof if I wait this long between getting cards.
You'll be paying out the wazoo for a new GPU card these days!!
I know that nvidias own msrp has no any meaning in the current market situation, when aib use much higher msrp on their own. Just thinking of a loud, because current situation would allow NVIDIA to put higher msrp to 3070ti that they did put on 3080 originally, so that they could get fatter profit themselves. Or do they consider of keeping the original msrp for imago reasons even if only few people in the world would get those new gpus at msrp...
This is ofcourse pure academic question, like studying dinosaurs living habits, but interested in anyway ;)
So, Nvidia's release schedule had typically been around 16-months per generation. That did increase in recent years, though that may have been at least partly due to a lack of competition at the high-end. However, now that AMD is once again being more competitive in that range, and there's also the unknown of what Intel will be doing with their graphics cards that could be launching later this year, there's the possibility that we might be seeing a new generation of cards a bit earlier, though probably not until at least next spring. Or at least something along the lines of their SUPER refresh if Intel's hardware proves competitive and they need to adjust prices. Though the current availability situation might disrupt that, at least if the mining market doesn't collapse in the interim.
I wouldn't expect double the performance for the next generation of cards though, but perhaps something like a big boost to RT performance might be feasible.
Yea, but, one, how long before they even get "released", and then be available to buy? And two, they can claim all kinds of stuff before hand. But if NVidia keeps on screwing up like they have been for the past few years, they won't be king any more, and will definitely be struggling if they don't lose their cocky attitude.
