Reports from Chiphell Forums seem to provide the latest update on NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 Ti & RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Graphics Card Rumored For 29th March Launch While 3070 Ti 16 GB Cancelled

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card was teased back at CES 2022 and the company stated that more information will be coming later that same month. Fast forward three months and we still haven't heard anything from NVIDIA regarding its flagship graphics cards & rumors remain are the best bet at knowing what's happening behind the scenes and causes for the indefinite delay.

The delay is attributed to both the supply of the flagship Ampere GA102 GPU dies and the PCB components. Based on previous reports, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is going to utilize the PG136C PCB which is an updated version of the RTX 3090 Founders Edition design. According to the latest rumor, NVIDIA is still facing some issues with the memory dies and they are being replaced. We don't know what the specific issue is but the graphics card will feature the fastest GDDR6X dies ever produced with transfer rates of up to 21 Gbps and that too in dual-capacity configurations (2 GB capacity vs 1 GB capacity).

That along with the compliance towards the new PCIe Gen 5 standard means that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be a totally different beast compared to the RTX 3090 Non-Ti but all of these changes have resulted in major delays, something which even NVIDIA didn't expect. Now, it looks like the card is rumored to launch on 29th March which is the end of this month & will be just in time before AMD refreshes its own RDNA 2 Radeon RX 6000 graphics card lineup with a brand new flagship, the RX 6950 XT, next month.

Besides the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, the rumor also states that NVIDIA has now more or less canceled its 16 GB GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card. The 16 GB offering was indeed real based on the data we have seen but it looks like NVIDIA doesn't seem to see that big of a demand for the variant and will just wait for the next-gen parts to replace it when they hit shelves around a rumored September 2022 launch.
