NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to be announced and released on the same day
VideoCardz appears to have confirmed rumours about the launch date of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Revealed at CES 2022, the RTX 3090 Ti will rely on the GA102-350, a slightly more potent version of the GA102-300 that powers the RTX 3090. Specifically, the RTX 3090 Ti has two more GPU clusters than the RTX 3090, along with more CUDA, RT and Tensor cores.
Additionally, the RTX 3090 Ti has higher clock speeds than its non-Ti sibling, coupled with faster VRAM and a higher memory bandwidth. However, these improvements come with a 100 W higher TDP. Hence, the RTX 3090 Ti will consume 450 W under load without offering more VRAM.
As the screenshot below shows, NVIDIA has set all embargo dates to lift simultaneously on March 29. Supposedly, NVIDIA will announce the RTX 3090 Ti at 06:00 PST (14:00 UTC), which is also when press and influencer videos can go live. The RTX 3090 Ti will be 'on shelf' from that time too, unlike other GeForce RTX 30 series launches.
Potentially, these embargo times would give people no option but to purchase an RTX 3090 Ti before NVIDIA finishes discussing the card. Likewise, the RTX 3090 Ti may be sold out when reviews go live. VideoCardz has not got its hands on MSRP yet, although it states that board partners await official prices themselves. If the RTX 3080 Ti is anything to by, the RTX 3090 Ti could stretch to nearly US$2,500.
