One rumor that has been floating around is that there has been talk of Nvidia possibly releasing "Hopper" the 40 series cards as early as late this year to early 2022.Gamers Nexus's recap of Nvidia's keynote
The RTX 3080 Ti is indefinitely postponed, because of stock issues.
In one way that seems too quick since the 30 series just released fall of 2020 BUT if you look at the 30 series was originally supposed to launch in the Spring of 2020 and not the fall it could just be Nvidia getting its release roadmap back to what would have been its original time frame which 18 months to 2 years between launches if not disrupted by the pandemic would make that late 2021 to early 2022 right on a normal timeline for a new series release.
Also again many say a shortage of the ddr6x vram is causing the delays and others are speculating that it is too close to the 3090 performance level and would kill that cards sales even for content creators with only 4gb less VRAM and a MSRP OF $500 less.
But this is the second time in about as many months that a 3080ti version has been cancelled. First time was thought to be to increase performance to compete at the 6900xt price point and level which the latest cancelled iteration seemed capable of.
Seems 2021 is starting out at about the same level of 2020 concerning screwed up GPU markets.
