NVIDIA Readies RTX 3060 8 GB, RTX 3060 Ti With GDDR6X & RTX 3070 Ti With GA102 GPU To Clear Away Ampere Inventory 1

NVIDIA is preparing the launch of three new RTX 30 series graphics cards including the new RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti & RTX 3070 Ti despite their next-gen being introduced in two weeks. It is said NVIDIA will be focusing these cards mostly on OEMs and giving huge discounts to PC makers for refreshed graphics cards in a bid to clear away existing Ampere GPU inventory.

NVIDIA Readies Three New GeForce RTX 30 Series Graphics Cards: RTX 3070 Ti GA102 GPU, RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X & RTX 3060 8 GB Variants

NVIDIA doesn't want to make a whole lot of noise around these SKUs and as such, they will see a silent launch within the retail segment. NVIDIA had several repurposed GeForce RTX 20 GPUs that were launched during the RTX 30 series life cycle so the same is going to happen with the out-going RTX 30 series.

We have been told that NVIDIA has just recently forwarded the notification of three models to AIBs which will include RTX 3060, RTX 3060 Ti, and RTX 3070 Ti. MEGAsizeGPU has more details on these SKUs which he leaked within a tweet.

Starting with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, the graphics card is expected to get a new variant based on the AD102 GPU die while retaining its 8 GB and 256-bit bus interface. The core specs are not mentioned but they are expected to remain the same. The original RTX 3070 Ti features the GA104 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores and a TGP of 290W. The second model is the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti which will 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. Finally, we have the RTX 3060 that will be utilizing a cut-down 8 GB and 128-bit bus interface from its original 12 GB & 192-bit design.

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. The prices of these products will be very attractive but NVIDIA wants to get rid of their inventory of GA102 and GA104 GPUs very soon as they prep for the mainstream GeForce RTX 40 GPU launch in early 2023.
