It seems that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 mid-range cards are more than confirmed, although we have not yet had the official announcement. In addition, the day when these graphics cards will be presented has been also known, all thanks to a recent leak.
Therefore, according to new information, NVIDIA will even launch new products on November 17th, namely the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti based on the GA104 GPU. How do we know this? Very briefly, the 17th of November is the day on which the embargo on the card ends. That is, this is no longer a rumor, it is 99% certain information.
However, the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is expected to hit the market with the GA104-200 GPU, which in turn means it will feature 4864 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory at 14Gbps. As the card is significantly less powerful compared to the already launched (but so rare) RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090, its TBP should be at 200W, with the reference design at 180W (5W more than the old RTX 2070).
The new RTX 3060 Ti should even be able to beat the RTX 2080 or maybe even the RTX 2080 Super. In case you didn’t know, Samsung’s 8nm process remains a huge headache for NVIDIA. So, although it is interesting to see the launch of a mid-range graphics card, it is even more interesting to know if we will have stock on the market.
However, according to some information, NVIDIA appears to have placed a few orders at the end of 2020, to increase massively next year. So, if you are looking to get a new graphics card, it might be a good idea to look at what AMD has to offer.
Furthermore, what do you think about all this?
