BIOS and hardware issues cause NVIDIA to halt RTX 3090 Ti production

Not even out yet, the news Graphic cardmost powerful in the world » sees its production interrupted.

Citing “inside industry” sources, TweakTown explains to us that NVIDIA has contacted its various partners so that ” the production of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is put on hold “.

Not yet officially dated

To speak of a delay in the marketing of the card is exaggerated insofar as NVIDIA has still not officially announced its release. Still, the latest rumors from the hallway reported marketing on January 27 when the company had, during CES 2022, specified that it would talk about its card again before the end of the month.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti should be the new “flagship” of NVIDIA’s catalog and significantly boost the performance of the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 Ti. Its GPU, the GA102-350, has 10,752 CUDA cores. It is supported by 24 GB of GDDR6X at 21 Gbps for bandwidth exceeding GB/s.

Problems ” BIOS and hardware »

Following this information from TweakTown, journalists from Videocardz contacted their own sources who confirmed the news, even providing some clarifications.

Thus, it would seem that several problems are at the origin of this interruption in the production of the RTX 3090 Ti. On the one hand, we are talking about concerns at the BIOS level, therefore rather software. On the other, there are talks of hardware issues, but we don’t know more about that at this time.

For example, we do not know if the cards already produced can be modified by NVIDIA and its partners to solve the said problems or if the difficulties are deeper.

In fact, the firm did not even reveal its exact specifications, just stating that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will give “40 TFLOPS for shaders, 78 TFLOPS for ray tracing, and a stunning 320 TFLOPS of AI muscle” while packing 24GB of GDDR6X memory with a data transfer rate of 21 GT/s. With such specifications, we can confidently predict that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be the new king of GPU benchmarks and one of the finest graphics cards available (with an exorbitant price tag to match).

According to unofficial sources, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti employs a fully-enabled GA102 GPU with 10752 CUDA cores, 112 texture mapping units, 84 render backends, and 336 ray tracing cores. Unofficial sources also said that the product will be released on January 27, although that date now appears to be at risk.
