NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Delayed To February 2021, RTX 3060 12GB/6GB Launching in January 2021

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

New reports arrive regarding the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, a graphics card that will seek to compete face to face with the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

According to the latest rumors, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card would arrive a little later than expected. Although it is indicated that it was going to be launched in the next month, January 2021, its launch would finally take place in February 2021, specifically between the 11th and 17th of that month.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti would have the same number of CUDA Cores as the GeForce RTX 3090 (10496) but with the same bandwidth as the GeForce RTX 3080 (760 GB/s), while its price would be $999, the same official price (under the paper) that the Radeon RX 6900 XT has, but offering more VRAM memory of 20GB, a more powerful Ray-Tracing support, and of course, access to DLSS technology to almost double its performance in compatible games.

On the other hand, it is indicated that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will arrive in January in the form of two variants, one with 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM memory, and another one cheaper with 6 GB of memory.

At least let’s hope that the same thing we saw with the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/3GB does not happen, where memory was not the only difference, since the 3 GB model had a less powerful silicon, although the first rumors around the specifications do not indicate the same, and we could see the same play here.

The announcement of the two variants of Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU would take place in the second week of January 2021. Specifically, the 12 GB model would be announced at CES 2021, while the 6 GB model would be announced at the end of that month.
