NVIDIA indefinitely postpones RTX 3080 Ti, launches RTX 3060 GPU specs, Ampere Laptops. Yes, it’s already mid-January and we’re still talking about what will happen with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. First, it was rumored to arrive in early 2021, then it was canceled, and shortly after that, it was still among the green team’s plans but a month late. Now, it is indicated that both the RTX 3080 Ti and the rest of the SUPER series GPUs, would have been delayed indefinitely, due to the impossibility of ensuring their stock.

GamersNexus revealed this information, indicating that NVIDIA‘s partners have already commented that the launch of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and any possible SUPER variant has been delayed indefinitely. Supposedly, this happened because the company wants to ensure a greater supply of its current RTX 30 series to satisfy demand.
This move makes a lot of sense, because considering the limited chip production of the green team, along with the huge demand that the GeForce RTX 30 is having, it makes sense to focus on supplying stores with the products already launched.
Let’s not forget that last week NVIDIA announced the 12GB GeForce RTX 3060 for $329. This, added to the incredible demand that the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 are having, already represents a wide range of graphics cards for NVIDIA, covering almost the entire price segment.
So yes, we will have to wait several more months to see the RTX 3080 Ti and the SUPER variants, at least until stock returns to normal or AMD introduces some new GPU that will force the green team to battle.
