The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050, RTX 3060, RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti edge closer to release with EEC registration
NVIDIA has released four RTX 30 series cards so far, but a board partner has effectively confirmed that at least another four are on the way. The release of the RTX 3060 Ti contained clues that NVIDIA would eventually sell a family of RTX 3060 cards, but a registration filed by Manli with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) suggests that there will be more than just more RTX 3060 cards.
It is worth noting that manufacturers do not always release the products that they register with the EEC, but that has proven the case with recent RTX 3060 Ti registrations filed with the commission. According to the listing, NVIDIA has developed the following models, on top of the four that it has already released:
- RTX 3080 Ti
- RTX 3070 Ti
- RTX 3060
- RTX 3050
There have been plenty of rumours about these cards, although Manli's EEC listing is the first somewhat official confirmation of their existence. The timing of the listing being published tallies with a claim made by Videocardz last month. Apparently, NVIDIA is scheduled to announce the RTX 3050, RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 Ti next month, along with the RTX 3050 Ti. We have not heard about the RTX 3070 Ti for a few months, though. Then there is the 20 GB version of the RTX 3080, multiple SKUs of which MSI recently registered with the EEC.
Based on past rumours, the RTX 3050 will feature the GA107 GPU, with NVIDIA using the GA106 on the RTX 3060. Meanwhile, the RTX 3070 Ti is thought to feature the GA104 and the RTX 3080 Ti the GA102. So, there could be eight to ten RTX 30 series cards on the market by the middle of next year, although it remains to be seen which of those will actually be purchasable.
