The RTX 3060 8GB and RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X are rumored to launch in October

According to Twitter leaker Zed Wang, aka MEGAsizedGPU, Nvidia and partners are allegedly working on at least three additional GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. According to the most recent green team rumor, RTX 3060 8GB, RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X, and RTX 3070 Ti based on the GA102 GPU are all in the works. We believe, however, that include these cards soon would indicate that there are still a few of months until mid-range GeForce RTX 40-series (Ada Lovelace) cards are available.

In light of the fact that the X060 is frequently the most well-liked SKU of every generation, the launch of a new GeForce RTX 3060 with 8GB of RAM may make the most impression. Naturally, this new model will have less VRAM than the original (12GB will be reduced to 8GB), but no other modifications to the specifications are mentioned. In the worst-case situation, Nvidia may reduce the bus for 8GB from 192 bits to 128 bits, lowering both bandwidth and memory capacity. It will just be inferior to the currently advertised RTX 3060 and be a move that would receive harsh criticism from enthusiasts if there isn’t any other rebalancing (CUDA cores, rates, memory speeds).

If Zed Wang’s information is accurate, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti update may undergo a more favorable modification. It is said that this model will see a considerable memory speed increase. Considering that it will go from 8GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 to the same amount of 19 Gbps GDDR6X, we may anticipate a 35% increase in memory bandwidth.

Last but not least, the insider predicts a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti using the GA102 GPU will be released. Nvidia uses this GPU to power its high-end cards, which it has recently been eager to move. Maybe there are tons of GA102 GPUs in storage that have just enough functional cores for the brand-new RTX 3070 Ti. Such economics frequently drive manufacturing reorganizations like this.
