Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch date pushed back once again; graphics card likely to be released by mid-May

A new report says that Nvidia has delayed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch date to mid-May. No reason has been cited, but it is safe to assume that it has something to do with the global semiconductor shortage. This will inadvertently affect the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti's release, too.

The tentative Nvidia GeForce 3080 Ti launch date has changed several times over the past few weeks. Initial reports said that it would be launched in January. That date kept getting pushed ahead every time it drew close. The never-ending cycle seems to be repeating itself if a new report from ITHome (via @harukaze5719 on Twitter) is to be believed.

Last we heard, the Nvidia GeForce 3080 Ti was to be released in April. ITHome says that Nvidia has delayed it again, this time to mid-May. Thankfully, nothing else has changed about the graphics card, with its price (US$999) and specifications remaining identical to what was previously reported. Whether or not it will come with the ETH hash rate limiter remains to be seen. It shouldn't make a difference either way, as Nvidia handed miners a way around it on a silver platter.

Needless to say, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launch will also affect when its sibling, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, which was slated for a May-end launch. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is an excellent intermediary card between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. However, now isn't the best time to launch it, as it will eat into the already strained RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 supply lines, given that they use a modified version of the same GA-102 GPU.
