NVIDIA flagship RTX 3090 Ti is going to be launched on March 29th, according to a message on Chiphell forums.
There has been no news on RTX 3090 Ti for a couple of months. The much awaited, NVIDIA’s upcoming enthusiast SKU will be equipped with the full GA102 GPU silicon combined with faster 24 GB and 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory. After being silent on this topic for two months, NVIDIA has finally revealed a launch date for this model i.e March 29th.
The delay in the launch of the card is possibly due to a memory-related problem. From the reports, we have come to know that there were difficulties with memory stability under some very specific scenarios. Chiphell’s post briefs that the problem required a complete replacement of the memory in order to resolve this issue.
They also claim that NVIDIA is making plans for RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB. It was talked about in many rumors and leaks in the past. This model was anticipated to compete with the upcoming Intel Arc A780 GPU, supposed to feature 16 GB memory as well.
After the presentation of the card at CES 2022, this is the first report on the upcoming RTX 3090 Ti. The news is not confirmed yet as the company can change the date again.
