RTX 3080 Ti: Nvidia to postpone release to February 2021

Nvidia would have delayed the release of its next graphics cards: the RTX 3080 Ti would be scheduled for next February, while the RTX 3060 would be launched earlier, in January of next year. The firm would have waited for announcements from AMD in order to be able to adapt its products to the competition.

Nvidia Gefore RTX 3080 Ti

There is change on the side of Nvidia. The release dates of the next graphics cards would have been postponed, some advanced and others delayed. This is particularly the case with Geforce RTX 3080 Ti. Some sources announce that it would finally be released in February 2021. If the manufacturer has not yet released official information on the subject, we already know that it is working on a GPU model to counter the new cards from AMD.

It is precisely for this reason that his announcement was delayed. Nvidia waited for the launch of the RX 6000 Series to adapt its RTX 3080 Ti, a leak of which announced 20 GB of VRAM for a price lower than the RTX 3090. If Nvidia decides to take its time, it is probably that it wants optimize its performance to be able to offer a system capable of competing with its great rival. It is therefore possible that its release date will be pushed back again in the future.

RTX 3060 is scheduled for January 2021

If the RTX 3080 Ti has been delayed, it may be because Nvidia has focused on producing another graphics card: the RTX 3060 12 GB. The latter would indeed be scheduled for January of next year. Here again, the strategy of the firm is not due to chance, since the Radeon RX 6700 XT from AMD, also in 12 GB, is also expected in this period. As for a potential RTX 3050 Ti, it would finally be presented for a RTX 3060 6GB, since their components would be the same.

Nvidia therefore seems to be stalling its releases on those of AMD. The latter hit fors a few weeks ago by presenting the Radeon RX 6800 XT, whose first 4K benchmarks bury the GeForce RTX 3090. The company was thus pushed into its limits and forced to revise its proposal. Whether Nvidia’s cards will live up to AMD’s promises remains to be seen. And you, do you have a forecast on the upcoming announcements? We are awaiting your comments on the subject.
