The graphics cards are not a surprise since we have known about them for a while but this listing more or less confirms that they are indeed heading to the retail segment soon. The NVIDIA lineup consists of the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12 GB memory, GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB memory & the AMD cards include the Radeon RX 6500 XT with 4 GB memory.

Gigabyte has listed the NVIDIA GeForce RTX cards in several custom variants including AORUS Waterforce, AORUS Waterblock, AORUS, Gaming, OC, Vision OC, Eagle OC while the Radeon RX 6500 XT being an entry-level model will only receive the Eagle and Gaming variation. Videocardz has the following table which shows each variant along with its specific segment:

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards Update:

NVIDIA will be upgrading the RTX 3070 Ti to utilize more memory at a higher efficiency than the current RTX 3080 series. It would not be surprising since the GeForce RTX 3060 offers more capacity than its Ti variant. But that would suggest that both RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti would end up with lower VRAM than the upgraded RTX 3070 Ti graphics card. NVIDIA is also expected to offer its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti flagship in Q1 2022 and that is expected to be unveiled at CES 2022.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB - 17th December Unveil / 11th January Launch
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB - 17th December Unveil / 11th January Launch
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 24 GB - Q1 2022?

Currently,  NVIDIA is showing that they are moving away from producing any further GPUs with less than eight gigabytes of memory on board, allowing for consumers to utilize stronger and more efficient GPUs than in previous years.

AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT 4 GB Graphics Card:

The AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT will be utilizing the full Navi 24 XT GPU die. Internally known as 'Beige Goby', the AMD Navi 24 GPU is the smallest of the RDNA 2 lineup and will feature a single SDMA engine. The chip will feature 2 shader arrays for a total of 8 WGPs and a maximum of 16 Compute Units. AMD has 64 stream processors per compute unit so that brings the total core count on the Navi 24 GPU at 1024 which is half that of the Navi 23 GPU which will offer 2048 stream processors in 32 compute units.

In addition to the number of cores, each shader array would feature 128 KB of L1 cache, 1 MB of L2 cache and there would also be 16 MB of Infinity Cache (LLC). The AMD Navi 24 RDNA 2 GPUs will also be featured across a 64-bit bus interface & will be featured on low-end Radeon RX 6500 or RX 6400 series parts. AMD Navi 24 is expected to get some really high clock speeds, even surpassing the 2.8 GHz barrier.

As for the specifications, the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card will feature 1024 cores and 4 GB of GDDR6 memory. The card would not be able to operate in any mining algorithm, especially ETH. The top model will feature a TDP slightly above 75W and as such, will require external power connectors to boot. The card is expected to launch in mid-January so expect an announcement at CES 2022.

The card is expected to aim at the entry-level segment with MSRPs of sub $200-$250 US. Since the Radeon RX 6600 series is already positioned in the premium 1080p gaming segment, expect the Navi 24 GPUs to be aimed at the entry-level 1080p gaming market. But given that AMD has raised the prices of RDNA 2 GPUs and alerted its AIB partners to do the same too, the entry-level market may end up in another mess for budget builders trying to get on something after years of wait.
