Narrowing down the RTX 3080 Ti launch window has been a pain for insiders, with the date shifting every couple of weeks. The latest reports indicate that the RTX 3080 Ti will now be announced on the 31st of May, followed by a retail launch in June. According to some sources, the RTX 3070 Ti will launch in a similar time frame.
After multiple delays, the latest rumours regarding the announcement of the RTX 3080Ti points to a reveal on May 31st. The review embargo is expected to end on June 2nd, so the release should be around this date. The RTX 3070 Ti is also rumoured to be announced on May 31st, but this card will release a bit later, with a reported review embargo of June 9th.
On a similar note, retail listings for the RTX 3080 Ti have been shared by VideoCardz. On Aquila Technology, there's a listing for an MSI RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X 12G OC priced at NZD $2,543.46 (£1316.23) and a Gigabyte RTX 3080Ti Gaming OC priced at NZD $3,152.50 (£1,631.40). Over on Computer Perth, listings for a Gigabyte RTX 3080Ti Vision OC and a Gigabyte RTX 3080Ti Eagle OC were spotted, both with a AUS $1732.75 (£966.75) price tag. Computer Perth's listings mention the NDA ends in late May.
The RTX 3080Ti is expected to feature the GA102-225GPU with 10240 CUDA cores and a 1665MHz boost clock speed. It should come with 12GB of GDDR6X memory at 19Gbps across a 384-bit bus and the Ethereum mining limiter.
The RTX 3070 Ti is rumoured to ship with a GA104-400 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores, 48 RT cores, 192 Tensor cores and 8GB of GDDR6X memory.
