Nvidia has reportedly pushed back the launch of the RTX 3090 Ti, its powerful top-end graphics card.
A number of websites have started reporting on the delay, each citing their own sources. TweakTown sources suggest that RTX 3090 Ti's release has been pushed back, and Videocardz has confirmed this with its own sources claiming BIOS and hardware issues are responsible for the delay. PC Gamer has also heard from a GPU manufacturer that the release may have been "temporarily stopped".
TweakTown's report says production of the 3090 Ti has been put on hold and that third-party board partners have also been asked to suspend production.
The Nvidia 3090 Ti was announced at CES 2022 earlier this month. At the time, no release date or window was offered, but rumors have it of a release date of January 27th. But without any official word from Nvidia, it seems likely that if the delay were to be real, we will not see the card until February at the earliest.
Although Nvidia has not promised a release date, it promised to reveal more about the card later this month. Hopefully, before January is out, we know both a release date and more details about the card's options.
So far, we know that the Ampere-based RTX 3090 Ti will include 40 teraflops GPU performance, powered by 24 GB GDDR6X VRAM.
Next to the RTX 3090 Ti, Nvidia announced a new entry-level GPU, the RTX 3050, coming on January 27 with a starting price of $ 269.
