Weeks after announcing it, Nvidia has gone silent on its flagship RTX 3090 Ti

Enlarge / Nvidia showed off the RTX 3090 Ti at CES 2022 in January.

At CES back in January, Nvidia announced two new desktop graphics cards. One of them, the lower-midrange RTX 3050, got pricing and a release date, and the reviews have already come and gone. The other, the tippy-top-end RTX 3090 Ti, had some of its specs announced, but the company said it would have more specifics “by the end of the month.”

But we’re now halfway into February, and the company still doesn’t have any news to share. An Nvidia spokesperson told The Verge that the company does not “currently have more info to share” on the speedy-but-almost-certainly-pricey flagship GPU.

This follows reports from mid-January that the company and its partners had halted production on the 3090 Ti due to alleged issues with the GPU’s BIOS and the hardware itself. Whether fixes can be applied to GPUs that have already been manufactured is unclear, but if the GPU die itself needs to be revised in some way, limited manufacturing capacity amid the ongoing global chip shortage could cause substantial delays.
