NVIDIA was originally planning to launch its new flagship gaming graphics card on January 27, but that is no longer happening.
This is according to sources with TweakTown, which told the publication that NVIDIA has told its AIB partners to halt the production of its recently announced GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card. No reason was given, but VideoCardz’ own sources suggest that the delay stems from something serious.
“According to them, there are issues with both the BIOS and hardware,” VideoCardz reported. “The details are not yet known, so it is unclear if board partners will be required to revise the boards that were already made or they need to wait for a solution from NVIDIA. In any case, we will provide an update on this situation as soon as we learn more.”
The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti was unveiled by Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of NVIDIA’s GeForce business, during the company’s CES 2022 Special Address on January 4. No pricing was given, but NVIDIA did share some of its specifications.
“The RTX 3090 Ti will pack 24GB of GDDR6X running at 21 Gbit/s, the fastest memory ever,” NVIDIA wrote in its summary of the address. “The GPU will crank out 40 teraflops for shaders, 78 teraflops for ray tracing and a whopping 320 teraflops of AI muscle. More details will be coming later this month.”
