Although there were rumors that the RTX 2080 Ti SKU was canceled, it appears that Nvidia is possibly working on a beefier one, based on GA102 GPU with 10496 CUDA cores and 20GB of GDDR6X memory.
Review roundup: Outshines the RTX 2080 Ti in every way
The reviews for Nvidia's third Ampere-based graphics card are now live and, as expected, it appears that this is currently the best one in the Geforce RTX 30 series, bringing impressive performance per Watt/buck, all with a $499 price tag.
Not coming this December
According to the latest rumor, Nvidia has canceled the December launch of the Geforce RTX 3080 20GB and the RTX 3070 16GB cards, which is a rather surprising move.
Looks close and/or better than RTX 2080 Ti
With Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070 scheduled to launch on October 29th, it comes as no surprise that we are now seeing some first leaks about the performance, aside from earlier Nvidia banchmarks. and judging from 3DMark scores, it could be close to the RTX 2080 Ti.
High demand to blame
Nvidia has postponed the launch of its Geforce RTX 3070 to October 29th due to higher than expected demand, as the company wants a healthy stock when it hits retail/e-tail shelves.
Internal roadmaps point to the end of October
Although Nvidia has only officially confirmed three SKUs in the RTX 30 series, it appears that the mid-range RTX 3060 Ti might be also coming by the end of next month, featuring GA104 GPU with 4864 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
Might extend to RTX 3090 as well
It appears that Geforce RTX 3080 might be facing a rough start and in addition to availability issues due to apparent high demand, the RTX 3080 users are facing random crashes and black screens. The issue appears to be specific to custom versions, and it might extend to RTX 3090 as it only hit the market yesterday.
Ampere gets support, SLI kicks the bucket
Nvidia has released its Geforce 456.38 WHQL Game Ready driver that adds support for Ampere-based RTX 3080 and upcoming RTX 3090 graphics cards, as well as kills SLI support. It also fixes some bugs and adds support for some upcoming games.
Review roundup: Reviews are out with nothing but praise
The review NDA for Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 Founders Edition has been finally lifted and reviews have gone online showing just how much raw performance is behind Nvidia's new $699 priced flagship graphics card.
