Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle OC Dual-Fan Graphics Card Pictured, Features Compact PCB Design
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti custom graphics cards have started leaking out and the first one is the Eagle OC variant which has been leaked by Videocardz. The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti aims to be a mainstream performance product within the RTX 30 series lineup that slots between the RTX 2080 SUPER and the RTX 2080 Ti in terms of performance.
Gigabyte's Custom GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle-OC Graphics Card Pictured, Dual-Fan & Compact PCB Design
In terms of design, the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle OC graphics card comes with a fairly standard design. It features a dual-slot form factor and has a wider-array cooler shroud. Shroud features two 92mm fans with 11 fan blades that push air through the central heatsink assembly.
The shroud features an aggressive design with matte black colors and the Eagle logo on the top. The card seems to feature at least four huge copper heatpipes that run through the aluminum heatsink. The heatsink and shroud extend beyond the PCB & Gigabyte also include a nice back-plate. The backplate has a cutout at the end through which hot air could be dissipated out inside the PC chassis. On the side of the card, we can spot a single 8-pin connector and a small RGB LED lightning zone which runs off Gigabyte's RGB Fusion technology.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Full Specifications:
Coming to the specifications, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti was submitted for validation by an anonymous user on 25th October. According to GPU-Z, the specifications feature the GA104 GPU which confirms that this is the second GPU to feature the said chip. There's no specific variant or SKU number mentioned but previous reports have hinted at the GA104-200 SKU for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
The GA104-200 GPU on the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti graphics card features 4864 CUDA Cores, 80 ROPs, clock speeds 1410 MHz base, and 1665 MHz boost. Based on the specs, the card should deliver an effective compute horsepower of 16.2 TFLOPs. These are also the default clock speeds for the card and the Gigabyte model will be featuring factory-overclocked specifications which we don't know yet. In terms of TGP, the card is expected to run below 200 Watts.
For memory, the graphics card will feature 8 GB of GDDR6 memory which will be running across a 256-bit bus interface. The memory clock for the GDDR6 memory would be maintained at 1750 MHz or 14 Gbps effective which rounds up a total bandwidth of 448 GB/s. The pixel and texture fillrate are both reported at 133.2 GPixel/s & 674.3 GTexel/s, respectively.
