Don't worry, they're probably sold out already anyway.

Nvidia's Computex presentation brought some tasty new, but expected, announcements last night. First up, the technology giant announced two new entries in their GTX 30xx GPU series. These are the RTX 3080 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti.

The RTX 3080 Ti will "launch" on June 3 for $1,199 (USD). It includes 12GB of GDDR6X memory, a whole 2GB increase over the vanilla GTX 3080 card and half of the GTX 3090. That price is what these cards will start at. Expect to see cards from partners to be priced much higher.

The RTX 3070 Ti will "launch" on June 10 for $599. This card will include 8GB of GDDR6X memory. Nvidia says that the 3070 Ti will show performance gains of 1.5x over the RTX 3070 Super. Both cards will obviously include support for Nvidia's RTX and DLSS technologies. These cards also include hash limits for mining Ethereum, which may make them less attractive to crypto miners.

Given how the global chip shortage continues, it's going to be damn near impossible to get these cards anyway. Nvidia expects the shortage to continue being an issue until at least late this year. Intel, meanwhile, feels as though the chip shortage could last for a few more years.

Also announced last night from Nvidia is the addition of several titles that will support their RTX technologies. These games include:
  • DOOM Eternal
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Icarus
  • LEGO Builder's Journey
  • DYING: 1983
  • The Ascent
  • The Persistence
The addition of RTX support to these games does not mean that every title will support all of the RTX technologies like ray tracing and DLSS. Some games, like DOOM Eternal will get ray tracing and DLSS support added in. Other titles, like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rainbow Six Siege, will only get DLSS support.

The biggest reveal from last night's Nvidia stream wasn't a new technology reveal or anything of the sort. It was the fact that Nvidia pronounces "Ti" as "tie." It's not pronounced as two separate letters, T and I. Who calls it tie? Who does that? C'mon, Nvidia.
