NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti spotted on GPU-Z with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM; mid-November launch imminent
Now that all the flagship Ampere cards are out and about, we can expect to see NVIDA's mid-range offerings on various corners of the internet. The rumor mill has, on several occasions, foretold that NVIDA will release the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in mid-November for around US$400. With the GeForce RTX 3070 due on October 29, that date seems quite likely. Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has made yet another appearance online.
Videocardz has stumbled upon what is undoubtedly the NVIDA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti on the Techpowerup GPU-Z database. An earlier leak told us that the card would use the GeForce RTX 3070's GA104-200 GPU and come with 4,864 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM with a memory bandwidth of 448GB/s. For all practical purposes, it appears to be a scaled-down GeForce RTX 3070 with its base clock speed of 1,410MHz, which can boost up to 1,665MHz. This particular GeForce RTX 3060 Ti variant appears to be made by HP, likely for its HP Omen line of gaming desktops.
We should have a rough idea about the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti's performance based on how the GeForce RTX 3070 does. Given its limited VRAM and somewhat limited processing power, the NVIDA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti should be an ideal candidate for 1080p gaming. Earlier reports have speculated that the graphics card can trade blows with the previous-generation GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. That is somewhat of a lofty claim, and it'll be interesting to see how it performs in the real world.
