At the beginning of October last year, the first information appeared about the most advanced graphics card of the Ampere family, i.e. RTX 3090 Ti. During NVIDIA’s presentation at this year’s CES 2022, the manufacturer announced the graphics card – showing the reference model, but without introducing the specifications and capabilities. The brand has announced that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will debut later this month – the latest data suggests that the premiere may be delayed.
NVIDIA discontinues production of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti
All indications are that due to NVIDIA, non-reference graphics card manufacturers have stopped production of the recently announced flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. According to information that appeared at the end of last month, the premiere of the arrangement was already scheduled to take place January 27And However, the brand faced some setbacks along the way.
It should be noted that NVIDIA has not checked the date in any way, which during the exhibition CES 2022 It was only announced that it might premiere in January. According to the latest information, the graphics card should have some problems – especially with the software, such as the BIOS, and also with the hardware. The sources do not give any details, so we do not know which side is wrong, and how serious the problem is – let’s prepare for the fact that a solution may take several days or even several weeks.
The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is set to be the most advanced consumer graphics card ever. It’s an improved version of the base 3090, so it’s based on the same Ampere GA102 GPU, but in the full version. The chip contains 10752 CUDA cores, 336 Tensor and 84 onboard ray tracing units. The GPU is powered by 24GB of video memory on an ultra-fast 21GDDR6X chipset, which delivers a bandwidth of 1018GB/s.
The graphics card should have a TDP = 450 W, so on the base NVIDIA reference version it will require a single 16-pin plug for the power supply. For non-reference GeForce models RTX 3090 Ti For the correct operation of the card, even 3 8-pin sockets may be required.
When do we expect the premiere? We don’t know that it definitely won’t happen in January, but the sooner the manufacturer finds a solution to the problem, the sooner it will be announced to the whole world.
