NVIDIA scraps the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti as RTX 3060 Ti remains on track for a mid-November release
NVIDIA has cancelled the RTX 3070 Ti, according to Videocardz. Citing unnamed sources, the website claims that no reason has been given for the cancellation, although it believes yield issues with GA104 GPUs could be the cause. The RTX 3070 Ti was rumoured to feature 6,144 CUDA cores and 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, which would have given it an advantage over the regular RTX 3070.
NVIDIA uses a cut-down version of the GA104 for the RTX 3070, for reference, which it will also supposedly use for the 16 GB version of the RTX 3070 and the upcoming RTX 3060 Ti. Videocardz claims that latter will still arrive in mid-November though, shortly before the announcement of the RTX 3070 16 GB and RTX 3080 20 GB.
The RTX 3060 Ti will be NVIDIA's budget RTX 30 series desktop card until it releases the RTX 3060. While specifications of the RTX 3060 remain unknown, the RTX 3060 Ti will reputedly feature 4,864 CUDA cores on a 392 mm² GA104-200 die. The card will also have 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM clocked at 14 Gbps with a 256-bit memory bus.
