Last month, Nvidia announced during its gamescom event the company's latest GPUs, the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. The company also promised that the new graphics cards will go on sale on September 20. However, that may not be the case for the RTX 2080 Ti.
The company has now moved to delay the GPU's availability by one week, per a post made by community moderator ericnvidia80:
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.
There is no change to GeForce RTX 2080 general availability, which is September 20th."
The delay does not come as a surprise. Consumers had the opportunity to preorder the GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti since they were announced, however, some custom versions of the latter like the 2080 Ti Founders Edition ran out of stock even before the GPU became officially available for purchase.
For now, consumers will have to wait a bit longer before they will be able to get their hands on the RTX 2080 Ti; keep in mind, though, that the RTX 2080 GPUs will be released as scheduled.
