We recently reported that NVIDIA will be launching the RTX 3060 Ti on November 17th, but it looks like it will be pushed back till early December. The RTX 3080 Ti will slot in below the $499 RTX 3070 and be based on the same 8nm “GA104” silicon with 38 out of the 48 streaming multiprocessors of the silicon enabled, which will give it 4864 CUDA cores. The card will more than likely have the same memory configuration as the RTX 3070 with 8GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 across a 256-bit wide bus. The card is also expected to have a TDP of only 180W. The card could perform similar to the RTX 2080 Super, which was $700 at launch.
We are not really sure why the launch has been pushed back. It will be moved from November 17th to December 2nd, a change of 2 weeks. NVIDIA could be building up their inventory so there are more cards available on launch day, or last minute optimization due to AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series announcement. Either way we should see the RTX 3060 Ti on December 2nd!
