Has NVIDIA cancelled its GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB?

The larger capacity versions of NVIDIA's Ampere GPUs may be a no-go. VideoCardz claims the GPU designer just told its add-in board (AIB) partners that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 20GB and RTX 3070 16GB are no longer a go. These models were supposed to be released in December and it's unknown why NVIDIA suddenly decided to cancel these models:
We do not know the official reason for the cancellation. The RTX 3080 20GB might have been scrapped due to low GDDR6X yield issues, one source claims. The reason behind RTX 3070 16GB cancellation is unknown (this SKU uses GDDR6 memory).
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is reportedly still a go for a mid-November launch.
