With the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series slated to launch later this year, how many people actually still care about the fabled GeForce RTX 3090 Ti? Who knows, but those of you who want to add another Titanium-grade GPU to the collection might be interested to know that the mysterious graphics card will finally arrive at the end of this month, according to the latest rumors out of China’s Chiphell forums. More specifically, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is expected to launch on Tuesday, March 29, following what “powder sausage” suggests were major problems with certain key components, such as memory.
The user also claims that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB of GDDR6X memory is no longer happening, which, if true, would secure 8 GB of GDDR6X as the only available memory configuration for the midrange graphics card. The GeForce RTX 3070 also features 8 GB of VRAM, albeit just GDDR6.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Flagship Graphics Card Allegedly Launches on 29th March, RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB Cancelled (Wccftech)
- The delay is attributed to both the supply of the flagship Ampere GA102 GPU dies and the PCB components. Based on previous reports, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is going to utilize the PG136C PCB which is an updated version of the RTX 3090 Founders Edition design.
- According to the latest rumor, NVIDIA is still facing some issues with the memory dies and they are being replaced. We don’t know what the specific issue is but the graphics card will feature the fastest GDDR6X dies ever produced with transfer rates of up to 21 Gbps and that too in dual-capacity configurations (2 GB capacity vs 1 GB capacity).
- That along with the compliance towards the new PCIe Gen 5 standard means that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be a totally different beast compared to the RTX 3090 Non-Ti but all of these changes have resulted in major delays, something which even NVIDIA didn’t expect.
