Leaked NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 SUPER/Ti details point to a GA104 GPU, 4,864 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM for budget RTX 30 series card
NVIDIA may have just announced the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, but the company is believed to have an RTX 3060 in the pipeline, too. A recent Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) filing suggests as much, as we reported last month. A November release is apparently planned for the RTX 3060, and Videocardz claims that there will be two variants.
The RTX 3060 will be at the bottom of the RTX 30 series product stack, which Videocardz believes will be based on the GA106. One up from the RTX 3060 will be the RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3060 SUPER. The name of this card is apparently up in the air, but @kopite7kimi has provided some information about it. It is worth keeping in mind that none of this has been verified, however, @kopite7kimi has developed a reputation in the last few months for publishing accurate NVIDIA hardware leaks.
According to the Twitter account, NVIDIA will base the RTX 3060 SUPER/Ti on the GA104 GPU, distinguishing it from the RTX 3060 with its GA106 GPU. The GA104 is also at the heart of the RTX 3070, but the RTX 3060 SUPER/Ti will feature a cutdown version that is supposedly called the GA104-200. @kopite7kimi adds that the RTX 3060 SUPER/Ti will have 4,864 CUDA cores, which would be over 1,000 fewer than are present on the RTX 3070. 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM will be onboard the RTX 3060 SUPER/Ti though, matching the RTX 3070.
Two RTX 3060 models may not be the end of the RTX 30 product stack for NVIDIA, either. An RTX 3080 Ti with 12 or 16 GB of GDDR6X VRAM is expected, as is a 20 GB version of the RTX 3080. A Lenovo listing has pointed towards the existence of the RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3070 SUPER, too. If those all prove to be real cards, then it could be a busy end to the year for NVIDIA.
