Nvidia reportedly pushed back the RTX 3080 Ti's launch

Solid dates for Nvidia's RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti graphics cards have been revealed, with Nvidia reportedly delaying its RTX 3080 Ti announcement until May 31st. 

Videocardz has claimed that Nvidia has set their RTX 3080 Ti's review embargo date for June 2nd, with the RTX 3070 Ti reviews coming on June 2nd. If true, this would mean that Nvidia will be allowing RTX 3080 Ti reviews to be released two days after the graphics card's official reveal. At this time, GPU availability dates are unknown. A June launch is expected  

Nvidia's new RTX 30 series graphics cards are due to ship with Nvidia's hash rate limiting technology, crippling the graphics card's cryptocurrency mining performance when mining Ethereum. Nvidia's RTX 3070 Ti will replace the RTX 3070 and the RTX 3080 Ti will replace the RTX 3080, effectively removing these popular mining graphics cards from the market. 

Nvidia's RTX 30 Ti series will focus on offering customers upgraded memory performance, with the RTX 3080 Ti receiving an upgrade from 10GB of GDDR6X to 12GB of GDDR6X while the RTX 3070 Ti gains upgraded GDDR6X memory to replace the RTX 3070's GDDR6 frame buffer. The RTX 3070 Ti will reportedly feature an 8GB frame buffer, though the upgrade to GDDR6X memory will enable a significant memory bandwidth upgrade. 

Given these memory performance improvements, Nvidia's hash rate limiting technology will become more important than ever, as Ethereum mining performance is mostly limited by memory performance on modern graphics cards. As such, these graphics cards would be ideal mining GPUs has Nvidia chosen not to limit their mining performance. 

Nvidia reportedly pushed back the RTX 3080 Ti's launch  

PC gamers can expect to hear more about Nvidia's new RTX 30 series graphics cards soon.

I wonder what AMD will do in retort to this. They'll fall behind (at least on paper) if they don't make a price cut (again, on paper).Quote

Nvidia, AMD, it's all much of a muchness to Joe Public just now to be honest; when both can actually catch up on quantity of product and availability as opposed to new releases I personally might start paying more attention to news and reviews (no slight intended to either Mark or TTL).Quote

I don't think either wants to fall behind in product development, it's completely separate from manufacturing. Releasing new models isn't going to affect shortage.Quote

I think you'll find both companies are two or three generations ahead in R&D (physical and theoretical), releasing products in insufficient quantity to supply market demand and the short sightedness of both companies in respect of this is my point.

Your R&D argument is kinda mute when the average person can't even buy current generation GPU's off the shelf in the here and now; I'll wager most consumers don't really give a toss about the next best thing when they can't even buy a GPU of ANY flavour at the moment.Quote

But what's the issue with releasing new SKUs, once they can catch up with shortage, surely they should focus on cutting edge products? Not like refraining from new releases is gong to make the shortage any better either.Quote
