Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB & GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB Graphics Cards Leak Out Through EEC

Hassan Mujtaba

Gigabyte is the latest manufacturer to confirm NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB and GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB graphics cards. Their upcoming custom variants within the AORUS, Vision, Eagle, Turbo, and Gaming family have been spotted by Videocardz over at EEC and it looks like we are just a few weeks away from the official unveiling.

Gigabyte Also Lists GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB & GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB Custom Graphics Cards

As per the listing, Gigabyte is preparing a total of 12 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti custom models which will range from triple-cooling to water-cooling and even blower-styled design. The GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB graphics card will be getting at least 5 variants that have been listed, all of which are non-Aorus designs so there are bound to be more than five custom models for the graphics card.

Following are all the custom models that you can expect for the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB & RTX 3060 12 GB graphics cards from Gigabyte as reported by Videocardz:

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 'Rumored' Graphics Card Specifications

Details from Kopite7kimi suggest that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FE (Founders Edition) graphics card will feature the PG133-SKU15 PCB design and the GA102-250-KD-A1 graphics core. The GA102-250 GPU has also changed since the last time we saw them and is now exactly the same as the GeForce RTX 3090 at 10496 FP32 CUDA cores.

As for memory, the card will feature 20 GB of GDDR6X memory. Unlike the 19.5 Gbps speeds of the RTX 3090, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is said to retain the same memory speeds as the RTX 3080 at 19 Gbps. Since we are getting a 20 GB bus interface, NVIDIA will be using a 320-bit bus interface which equals a total bandwidth of 760 GB/s. TGP for the card is set to be the same as the RTX 3080 at 320 Watts. That's definitely needed to feed the extra cores so NVIDIA might have to optimize the clocks a bit here.

NVIDIA could undercut the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT which is a $999 US graphics card with the RTX 3080 Ti though we have to see just how much of a difference the Ti variant makes as it will end up being sandwiched between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. There are reports that the RTX 3080 Ti may end up faster than the RTX 3090 due to its higher clock speeds while the RTX 3090 could remain a Titan class product serving the enthusiast and content creation market with its higher VRAM buffer.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 'Rumored' Graphics Card Specifications

The GeForce RTX 3060 is suggested to feature the GA106-400 GPU which is expected to feature 3840 FP32 cores in a total of 30 SM units. The graphics card will make use of the PG190 SKU by board partners which are both GA104 and GA106 pin-compatible. The graphics card has seen a range of memory specs update starting with 6 GB (14 Gbps) and now listed at 12 GB (16 Gbps).

It is rumored that the card will feature a massive 12 GB memory buffer which is larger than that of the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, and even the RTX 3080. This is not confirmed yet but the reason could be that NVIDIA wants to really tackle AMD in the mainstream segment. Again, we saw rumors of 20 GB and 16 GB for the RTX 3080 & RTX 3070 too which didn't end up being true as they were early designs that were later on canceled.

The card will feature a 192-bit bus interface and at 16 Gbps, delivering bandwidth of up to 384 GB/s. The GeForce RTX 3060 could end up being priced at $299 US which will make it a formidable graphics card.
