Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti rumoured for mid-April launch

Rumours coming out of China suggest we will see Nvidia launch the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in April. The story was picked up by Twitter's momomo_us, and the source appears to be very confident that the new high-end Ampere graphics card will "be released on the market around mid-April".

 

Rumours about the release on an RTX 3080 Ti have swirled for rather a long time. It appears to be the case that Nvidia and partners have pencilled in a date to launch this GPU at least twice previously, before deciding to delay, and may have reconfigured the key specs (particularly VRAM quota). In December last year HEXUS published three stories on the yet to be revealed GPU, as Asus accidentally listed this card in its support pages and Gigabyte registered models with the EEC. Furthermore, usually reliable sources tipped that the card had been delayed to at least Feb 2021. Coming up to date, a week ago we reported on various sources indicating the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti would apply Nvidia's mining limiter strategy. (On a side note, some reports this week saying that the Nvidia cryptomining limiter had been bypassed proved to be wrong).

RTX 3080 Ti (expected $999)

Someone obviously hasn't been paying attention to GPU prices recently. It's a joke.

 

In 2017, I paid £95 for my 7950, the same GPU now is £120-£150. My 2070 that I paid £475 (which was already over RRP at the time) are selling for £650+

 

I expect 3080Tis to be $1500 from retailers if you can find them, $2000+ on eBay.

I wonder about this, too. While I lucked out and ran across a 3090 at MSRP, it really was luck / right-time-right place. I do check prices and availability of Ryzen CPUs , AMD 6kXT and Nvidia RTX 3k in both Europe and N. America at least once a week...and most of the stuff is just not available or outrageously priced. I doubt 3080 Tis will write a different story, at least over the next few months...

With news of more MSRP increases by MSI (with others likely to follow because why not?) I absolutely wouldn't be surprised if this follows similar pricing trends to the 3090. $1500 from the AIB's and scalping for $2k+ on eBay.

 

The only card that might be $999 is the rarest one of all if they do one...the FE.
