The upcoming variants of NVIDIA RTX 30 series, GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, and GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB have been canceled according to Videocoardz. Rumors suggest that NVIDIA’s AIB partners are told to cancel their plans for GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB and GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB graphics cards by NVIDIA.
Although both the GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB and GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB were a reality and planned for late 2020 but the latest development and news from AIB source indicates that both the graphic cards have been canceled; hence there will be no launch this year.
Prior to the official introduction of the GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards with double the memory, the rumors had gained popularity. Earlier reports said that multiple variants will be launched that included GeForce RTX 3080 20 GB, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB, and the GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB with the aim to deal with MD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.
However, as per the latest information, the situation has changed. The exact reason is unknown, but a shortage of stock due to the high demand could be the case. As per the statement made by NVIDIA’s CEO, the supply issue will be resolved by 2021.
