Palit registers NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3050 Ti SKUs with the EEC
Stock issues with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series cards may remain until May at the earliest, but it seems that board partners are preparing for more Ampere releases. AIDA64 Extreme has already added the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti to its repository, suggesting that a release is on the horizon. At the same time, Manli registered multiple SKUs with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, among other graphics cards.
PALIT has done the same, but with 27 registrations for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti SKUs. According to Videocardz, NVIDIA is yet to set a release date for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, with the company keeping the graphics card on hold until stock levels of Ampere GPUs have improved. Conversely, we may not see the card at all if stock levels remain poor throughout 2021, but Videocardz states that NVIDIA has not cancelled the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, yet.
You can view the SKUs that Palit has registered with the EEC in the screenshot below. However, we have also compiled a table of the respective SKUs for the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.
Videocardz notes that NVIDIA plans to release the RTX 3050 Ti as a 6 GB version of the RTX 3060. NVIDIA will also base the RTX 3050 Ti/RTX 3060 on the same GA106-300 GPU it uses for the 12 GB version of the RTX 3060. Videocardz adds that this 6 GB SKU is currently scheduled for release in Q2 2021, based on NVIDIA's current internal roadmap.
