NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti Cards Start Shipping on May 31st, Arrives June 9th
After having to affect rumors left and right, people now think when the subsequent NVIDIA RTX card is out, and it’s getting to be before most expect.
TweakTown reveals that the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti goes to be officially announced on May 31 and out on the market on Jun. 9 (which is additionally the date for reviews of the cardboard to return out). This news (for real this time) comes after images of the new NVIDIA cards can be shipped kept shooting up everywhere on the web recently.
The launch date is additionally not the one that NVIDIA planned initially. Consistent with a report on Forbes, the discharge was delayed from the initial prior date of May 18. The official reason, compatible with Team Green, was production issues (which now’s no surprise in the least, given the state of graphics card supplies.
Does it Have Anti-Mining Measures?
Remember when NVIDIA released the RTX 3060, promising a software lock that will include determiners from gobbling up stocks? Yeah, that did not go as planned. And what’s even worse, NVIDIA themselves “accidentally” unlocked the hash rate via a driver. Within the end, gamers still got the short end of the stick.
People are now clamoring for subsequent Ampere cards to be undesirable for miners by limiting their hash rates. And NVIDIA is answering their call, with the so-called low hash rate (LHR) cards starting to hit the market in June, consistent with Videocardz. Team Green is promising that at this point, the mining limiter isn’t hackable.

But is that the RTX 3080 Ti among these LHR GPUs? Yes, and it’ll have equivalent anti-mining measures because the new variants of the RTX 3060 Ti, 3070, and 3080 (which are releasing alongside the brand-new Ampere card. But it’s still unsure if the limiter is either a hardware or software-based one. Because if it’s the latter, then kiss these cards goodbye. If it is the former, then maybe we’re in business.
Specs and Price Expectations
The newest addition to the Ampere lineup has some pretty impressive hardware under the hood. Featuring a reworked GA 102–225 GPU, the cardboard will sport a vast 10240 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR6X memory on a 384-bit bus (up from the 3080’s 352-bit), and 76 RT cores for all that ray-tracing goodness.
As for the worth, maybe attempt to temper all expectations. It’s already hit certain retailers worldwide, consistent with Tom’s Hardware. For example, a retailer in New Zealand priced the MSI Ventus OC version for around NZD 2500, or almost USD 1800. And down under in Australia, the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti Eagle retails for over AUD 1700, which is simply above USD 1300. Yikes.
Here’s hoping that this new launch will be an honest one.
