More details have emerged about NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce cards.

GeForce RTX 3080 Ti launching on May 25

Citing a report from Asian tech site HKEPC, VideoCardz reports NVIDIA plans to launch the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on May 25th.

Allegedly, this date has been communicated to NVIDIA's add-in board partners. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti uses the GA102-225 GPU and is expected to feature 10240 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6X memory. Suggested retail pricing should be around $999.

GeForce RTX 3070 Ti delayed to June

There is also word about the RTX 3070 Ti, this model is reportedly delayed to early June. Previously, NVIDIA targeted a May launch for this card.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is expected to get a GA104-400 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores and 8GB GDDR6X memory.

Watercooled AMD Radeon RX 6900 XTX gets pictured

In related news, VideoCardz also came across photos of an unreleased AMD Radeon RX 6900 XTX with watercooling. This model is equipped with all-in-one watercooling and is an evaluation board. It's unknown if AMD is still planning to release this variant.
One would have guessed that this Navi 21 [XTXH] variant was originally planned for this liquid reference design, but due to very limited supply, AMD decided to just give it away to AIBs instead. Of course, that is just an educated guess, we might as well see this liquid-cooled XTX model being released in the coming months.
