It’ll arguably be the most famous of this 2022 if the RTX 40 and its pricing doesn’t fix it, but what was done at CES 2022 might remain in the typical “where will they go” joke? If NVIDIA doesn’t fix it, and it doesn’t look like it to be honest. Almost a month later and after publicly declaring that we would have news of this long-awaited and expensive GPU, since non-existent until now, NVIDIA remains silent. Does anyone know what’s going on with the lag on the RTX 3090 Ti? Good…
Believe us when we tell you that we thought about not doing this article and letting it go given the date it is, but when we pulled sources and sought out top notch information on the other hand, what we find is a scenario that incites more jokes and almost ridiculous than anything else so we decided to collect information and take it with humor even if really at NVIDIA headquarters it seems that they are not exactly here for laughs right now.
Why is there a lag in the RTX 3090 Ti?
This is undoubtedly the most pertinent question. As we know at CES 2022, VP Jeff Fisher said we’ll have direct-to-the-card news in late January, but at this time we don’t have a call or email or anything. be official about it. Asking is a rather curious set of situations because if there is no official information behind these statements, it is because NVIDIA prefers to remain silent.
The leakers know almost nothing and the last thing about them is that there can be very important changes that at the same time and curiously make us think about the RTX40. Because? Well, there is speculation that the 16-pin connector will be removed for unknown reasons, but there are some rumors that coincide on several fronts: hardware and software don’t match, they don’t get along, there are issues and no one is revealing more data to figure out what’s going on beyond the fact that they are electrical issues that the BIOS can’t handle or fix.
Did NVIDIA go with consumption?
Well, it’s predictable that maybe a little, but then it’s going to be very debatable if that was the case. Don’t forget that they are the precursors of the connector of 16 pins which they are trying to integrate as standard, so removing it in the first model that “exceeds” in consumption is not very flattering and less promising.
The RTX 40 will likely carry this connector, so if the electrical issues with this one are true, we’re more than concerned. Not in vain, we already talked almost a year ago about how the connector brought some veteran sources to the “street of bitterness” where some rails could not handle the amperage despite the adapter that the brand includes and was causing reboots in the mid-range and low-end RTX 30.
A draw like 450 watts can make any 1000 watt source swoon, where over 40 Amps per channel is something really hard to handle, let’s not even imagine internally on the PCB and chip. Solution? none at the moment. The RTX 3090 Ti is today a chimera and NVIDIA’s silence does not help, because it means that there is secrecy and that it is not going well at all. Maybe shedding some light on the matter and assuming there are issues would be better because no one is flawless and that doesn’t make them a worse company, it’s possible it’s the other way around , as errors were caught before going to market and the decision to delay or cancel it before it hits shelves is definitely the right thing to do.
