NVIDIA has pushed back the announcement of its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card by two weeks. This is according to VideoCardz and Overclocking.com, whose sources have reported that the highly anticipated GPU will now be unveiled on May 31 instead of May 18—the same date as its weaker Titanium-infused sibling, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Their review embargoes will lift on separate days, however—GeForce RTX 3080 Ti reviews are expected on June 9, while GeForce RTX 3070 Ti reviews will be available around a week earlier on June 2.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will feature GA102-225 GPU with 10240 CUDA cores enabled. This model will offer 12GB GDDR6X memory, which is indeed just 2GB more than RTX 3080, but thanks to the wider bus of 384-bit the maximum bandwidth will increase by 152GB/s.

  1. They delayed to try and align with how much later you can expect to get one.
    Unfortunately they confused weeks with years.
  2. I really wonder why there bothering with the review embargo. Why not just tell them no reviews unless you can buy one?
