The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is already purchasable, but for nigh on US$1,000
The release of the RTX 3060 Ti may not be scheduled until December 2, but a retailer in Saudi Arabia has already taken delivery of some custom cards. Posting a video and photo on its Facebook page, Silicon Valley Computers is already selling the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Ti EAGLE OC for SAR 3,699 (~US$986). We doubt that board partners like Gigabyte will sell the RTX 3060 Ti for as much in Europe and the US, though. Videocardz, for example, expects custom RTX 3060 Ti cards to sell for approximately US$400.
Oddly, Silicon Valley Computers posted a fake picture of the RTX 3060 Ti on its website. However, the box matches the one that Videocardz has already revealed, the images of which we have included below. The photos reveal that custom cards will have a single 8-pin power connector, along with four display outputs. All cards are expected to offer 4,864 CUDA cores on a GA104-200 GPU, with 152 Tensor cores, 38 RT cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. The RTX 3060 Ti is believed to have a memory bandwidth of 256-bits too and a TGP of between 180 W and 200 W.
