Nvidia delays the launch date of GeForce RTX 2080 Ti by a week
Nvidia has decided to postpone the release date of its upcoming graphics card, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to September 27th. The company originally had plans to release this graphics card on September 20th along with GeForce RTX 2080.
The delay in availability of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti by a week was confirmed by a moderator on the official Nvidia GeForce forums. This means PC gamers will need to wait for an additional week to get their hands on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
“Hi Everyone, Wanted to give you an update on the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti availability. GeForce RTX 2080 Ti general availability has shifted to September 27th, a one week delay. We expect pre-orders to arrive between September 20th and September 27th,” wrote the moderator on the forum post.
The delay in the release of the RTX 2080 Ti by a week could possibly be due to high demand and shortage of supply of the graphics card since it was available for pre-order from the time it was announced last month. Although nothing has been confirmed by Nvidia yet.
However, there is no change to the general availability of the GeForce RTX 2080, confirmed the moderator. “There is no change to GeForce RTX 2080 general availability, which is September 20th. We’re eager for you to enjoy the new GeForce RTX family! Thanks for your patience,” the moderator added.
In other words, the GeForce RTX 2080 is still on schedule and will be available on September 20th. This means those who have pre-ordered the RTX 2080 can expect to get their card at its initial launch date.
The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founders Edition is priced at $1199, while non-Founders Edition cards will be available for $999.
