There will be a 12 GB version of the GeForce RTX 3060, Videocardz has confirmed. A 6 GB SKU will be offered too, but there will only be an 8 GB version of the RTX 3060 Ti. The RTX 3060, RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti are now thought to be arriving in January 2021, too.

The RTX 3080 Ti is not the only GeForce card that NVIDIA is planning to release in January, according to Videocardz. Now, the website claims that NVIDIA will unleash the RTX 3050, RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3060 too, which are all built on the PG190 board. The release of the three cards will follow on from the announcement of the RTX 3060 Ti, which is supposedly due on December 2.

Videocardz adds that NVIDIA will release the RTX 3060 Ti with 8 GB of VRAM, which leaked images of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti EAGLE OC have already demonstrated. However, the RTX 3060 Ti is now thought to be only coming with 8 GB of VRAM. This VRAM will be GDDR6 and will operate at 14 Gbps on a 256-bit bus.

By contrast, there will be two VRAM SKUs of the RTX 3060. Apparently, NVIDIA will release 6 GB and 12 GB GDDR6 versions of the card, albeit on a 192-bit bus. Oddly, the 12 GB version will run at 16 Gbps, 2 Gbps faster than the 6 GB SKU.

In short, January 2021 will be a busy month for desktop graphics cards. On the one hand, AMD is rumoured to be announcing the RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT - to add to the three RDNA2 cards that it has already announced. On the other hand, NVIDIA is thought to have four cards ready for then, so there will be plenty of graphics cards from which to choose early next year.
