The shortage of chips has caused more casualties, and some of NVIDIA’s newer memory cards are the latest cutting boards.
according to Igor’s LaboratoryAccording to sources, the release of Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti 16GB and RTX 3080 12GB has been postponed. There are rumors that these graphics cards have been out for some time, and the official announcement will be released on December 17th in a few days. On the contrary, the source said that now only the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be shown at CES, and the source said they will be purchased before the Chinese New Year. I don’t know how much, or how much money those bad boys would want, but I suspect that the price might make me cry.
Given the current situation, it is not surprising that memory upgrades to these GPUs have been temporarily abandoned. Any semi-decent graphics card will disappear from the market, and a small improvement in VRam may not change this. We finally saw the 12 GB enhanced version of the RTX 2060 popular store, and the price has many shortcomings.
The upgraded 3070 or 3080 cannot be released with a more budget mindset, and why bother when Nvidia can sneeze the standard version by sneezing against such a high demand. If you really want to see the RTX 3070 with 16 GB of video memory, then this module can meet your needs anyway.
Another guess is that Nvidia may be waiting to see AMD’s hands. Everyone in the silicon field is in a state of austerity and pays close attention to their competitors. The partnership is also very tense, so this may just be a situation where green is waiting to peek at blue.
In the next few weeks, as CES and other brand announcements pop up after the holidays, we are likely to learn more about Nvidia and AMD’s plans for any upcoming cards. AMD is scheduled to release it on January 4th, and it might surprise us with some cool hardware. In addition, we also heard that ASUS laptops will release powerful graphics cards. Although who knows how much any of these things will eventually cost us, or whether we can buy them in the first place.
