Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti reportedly launching March 29th, RTX 3070 Ti 16GB cancelled

While Nvidia initially planned to reveal more details on the RTX 3090 Ti in January, but that timeline swiftly went out the window when production faced delays, as we reported at the time. Now, Nvidia is reportedly planning to launch its new RTX 30 series flagship on the 29th of March, and the previously rumoured 16GB RTX 3070 Ti has been scrapped. 

According to a source posting on Chiphell (via Hardware Times), the delay in the RTX 3090 Ti was due to a memory problem. Specifics aren't confirmed, but it could be related to Nvidia using 12x 2GB modules instead of 24x 1GB modules (on both sides of the PCB), as used in the original RTX 3090.

It is also claimed that the RTX 3090 Ti will now be launching on Tuesday the 29th of March. Meanwhile, the previously rumoured RTX 3070 Ti with 16GB of memory has also been scrapped, although the reason for this decision is unclear at this time.

KitGuru says: Although these are just rumours, the cancellation of the RTX 3070 Ti seems reasonable. This GPU was supposed to rival Intel desktop GPUs, but as they are only coming out in Q2 2022, its lifespan would be relatively short, as the RTX 40 series is planned for later this year.
