NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 8 GB & RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X Graphics Cards Reportedly Launching In Late October 1

NVIDIA seems to have planned the launch of its GeForce RTX 3060 8 GB & RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X graphics cards for late October, reports Videocardz.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 8 GB & 3060 Ti GDDR6X Graphics Cards To Launch By End of October, Who's Gonna Buy Them?

Earlier this week, it was reported that NVIDIA was working on a trio of GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, mostly in the mainstream segment. The graphics cards which include the new models of the RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and RTX 3070 Ti, are reportedly designed to have options within the mid-range segment & while NVIDIA is launching its next-gen RTX 40 series soon, their lineup won't include mainstream options till next year.

With these new GeForce RTX 30 series models, NVIDIA would not only have more options in the mid-range market but also find a way to clear out their existing GPU inventory. Though the price situation would mean that these will be priced much lower than the MSRPs the original cards had launched at. The first two cards that are expected to ship next month would include the GeForce RTX 3060 & the RTX 3060 Ti. And just because they are new models, don't expect them to feature better specs (as is the case with the RTX 3060 Non-Ti).

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is expected to retain its GA104 GPU core but will be upgraded to 8 GB of GDDR6X memory whereas the current model uses the standard GDDR6 memory standard. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card will be utilizing a cut-down 8 GB and 128-bit bus interface from its original 12 GB & 192-bit design. This cut-down spec will provide 240 GB/s of bandwidth which is a -33% decline compared to the standard 12 GB model. The RTX 3070 Ti is also rumored to get a soft refresh on the GA102 GPU to clear away high-end chip stock.

Considering that Intel has Arc GPUs launching later this month and the flagship is mostly on par with an RTX 3060 Ti, a faster RTX 3060 Ti at a cheaper price could spell trouble for the A770 while the Arc A580 might be pushed to the side with the RTX 3060 8 GB variant. Intel has updated the specs of the Arc A580 to a wider bus and more cores but whether the final performance would be good enough to tackle NVIDIA's RTX 3060 series remains to be seen.

These specifications are not final but we have confirmed that NVIDIA is indeed working on new variants of these RTX 30 series graphics cards which we will soon see in the retail segment. Once again, the prices of these products will have to be very attractive if NVIDIA wants to get rid of their inventory of GA102, GA104 & GA106 GPUs soon as they prep for the mainstream GeForce RTX 40 GPU launch in early 2023.
