NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 Ti reveal event livestream coming May 31

NVIDIA's Q1 2022 earnings call was today, but tech fans might want to keep an eye on the end of the month when the company presents its RTX 3080 Ti GPUs.

With Q1 coming to an end for a lot of companies through this last month, results are being posted with interesting looks at how businesses did over the course of 2020 and how they are looking coming into 2021 as many of them recover from a rough year in the face of a pandemic. NVIDIA is no different, having posted its Q1 2022 results today, but perhaps just importantly, Nvidia revealed that it’s going to be showing off some of its new tech very soon. It seems that at the end of this May, we can expect a presentation featuring details on the new RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

Nvidia revealed this interesting detail about the upcoming 3080 Ti presentation during its Q1 2022 earnings call on May 26, 2021. According to executives on the call, NVIDIA has plans to reveal the RTX 3080 Ti GPU and possibly other technology during a presentation on the NVIDIA YouTube and Twitch channels on May 31 at 10 p.m. PT / 1 a.m. ET (the timing of which was shared in a GeForce Nvidia tweet earlier today).

NVIDIA did quite well itself through the last year, despite issues with the ongoing semiconductor shortage. The RTX 30XX series of GPUs flew off shelves, whether by enthusiasts, scalpers or by way of those trying desperately to use them on cryptocurrency. The bottom line is that despite the fact that it’s very hard, if not nearly impossible to get an RTX 30XX GPU without some substantial luck and timing, NVIDIA made bank through the previous year. That will likely continue to be the case on both counts as it prepares the new RTX 3080Ti GPU for launch.

Even so, it should be interesting to see what NVIDIA’s new GPU can do. For that, stay tuned to Shacknews as we follow the RTX 3080 Ti presentation going live on May 31 for details and information.

      Am I weird to think this product reveal is sort of extremely tone deaf? There are still untold numbers of people who can’t find a video card, haven’t been able to since September, and won’t be able to probably until next year.

      I don't understand how this isn't a kick in the face to 3090 customers?

        How's that a kick in the face? It being only 5%-10% faster than the 3080 was always known and there were rumors of a Ti model with a midpoint of RAM all the way back when they were first announced.

        Most of all, people who bought a 3090 at retail price actually came out great since a 3070 on the secondary market ended up costing more because of shortages. Anyone who bought at retail is doing great.

        I'm guessing it'll just be that you can mine at full speed on the 3090.

        It might be an issue if anyone could actually buy one.

        The gap between 3080 and 3090, for most games, is around the 10-12%. Nvidia does this on purpose, so the Ti variants close the gap to single digit percentage points. It's also not uncommon to see the Ti variants be a little cooler than the previous models, we'll see if that continues.

        The 3090 was a kick in the face to 3090 customers.

        3090 is for AI modeling and ML, not really gaming.

        How’s that? It’s slower than the 3090 and has half the memory.

      Is this going to have any miner limitations?

        Yes, all the new models will, and older models will as the older stuff is sold off. Except the 3090 IIRC.

              Then I'll put an order in and hope it arrives before the 3080 I bought & paid for 6 months ago, which still has no ETA :\

                  West Australia :\

                  I was late to the party (relatively speaking) and only ordered mid November. Austin and PLE here were taking orders, claiming 'paying for it would ensure you get it'.. right now I'm just keeping it on order even if I just end up getting the money back.

                    Ahh yah around here most places weren’t doing preorders at all. It was first come first serve. EVGA was the only vendor they did a wait list.
