NVIDIA's new flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card was announced at CES 2022, and was meant to be released later this month... but yeah, that might not be happening.
 
I've had an industry source reach out to me talking about the situation with NVIDIA and its latest GPUs, where I was told that NVIDIA asked AIB partners to "pause production" on their custom GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards. I asked if they knew the reason, but they didn't know why NVIDIA asked them to pause production. The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is meant to be an absolute GPU monster, with upgrades in every way right up to a huge new 450W TDP. But asking AIB partners to "pause production" out of nowhere without an explanation? That's weird, but maybe there are problems in silicon paradise? First Samsung has major issues with its new AMD RDNA 2-powered Exynos 2200 SoC -- made on Samsung's in-house process node -- and so too are NVIDIA's current flock of Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs, including the new flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
 
Hopefully, we have some clarification on the situation soon.
 
Funnily enough, Team Green didn't talk about the full detailed specifications of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti -- but we know that we can expect around 40 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance. Oh, and that custom RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards are going to be power monsters, chewing down 1000W+ of power.
 
I'll assume this to be rumor until verified.

    Maybe a card that is fairly finicky at 500 watts doesn't need to be scaled to 1000.

    This could be a case of vaporware not being about to scale past 500W.  Read the article this morning about the miraculous evaporation of production limits in 2H22.  Seems anything coming out today is rumor, speculation and wishful thinking especially if it’s c-suite corporate folks.

    Other leaks/rumors are saying they are having BIOS and hardware problems.  (Source: https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-asks-board-partners-to-halt-geforce-rtx-3090ti-production-citing-bios-hardware-issues)

    Seems like a rushed product. I think they are trying to capitalize on the market right now.

    I really sensed something was up based off what a let down CES was.    But yea this would probably still need to be FABed at Samsung which we all know has been one of the major factors of the GPU delays..

    It could be a refinement of the pcb & not a silicon issue
     
    or just hedging an unannounced AMD product ?

    I have a sneaky suspicion that why we had a huge drop of 3090 KPE recently. They were/are trying to build up stock of 3090 Ti's for release and many could not qualify.

    I suspect it's because of the silicon shortage that's happening right now, combined with them throwing out something in order to compete with AMD's latest releases. Hopefully this works in our favor since they won't be stretching their already very low supply of silicon chips to yet another GPU.
     
    It is odd though, that they only gave their new "halo card" like 10 seconds out of a 30-minute CES presentation. Something tells me in the process of rushing to get a product out the door in time to show what they're doing to compete with AMD that they also rushed the logistics of the cards and are now redoing the card a bit, which would explain the lack of basically any extra information on the card.

    The GTX-1050 TI is extremely underrated, and no one can tell me otherwise.

    Probably a hardware and/or vBIOS issue if the rumor is true.

    ohhhh here we go again...    yeah!
     
    just release the 4000 gen already!!   
    i don't understand all this focus on a Ti version of an already existing ultra powerful card (with an ultra price tag) that in the end.... it's not really aimed for gaming and we gonna need a nuclear reactor in the backyard to feed those things!!!
     
    production maybe halted for several reasons..  who knows!
    could be marketing strategy 'cause maybe AMD is gonna release something new soon.. or maybe they are really having issues with hardware / bios!

    There is a large development cycle for next gen video cards. I am 'guessing' that the release is not possible until the 2nd half of 2022. The RTX 3090ti is possibly a stop gap until the next gen release.

    a 3090 Ti a stop gap?   that's not a stop gap that's a Grand canyon GAP!
