Disclosed characteristics of the "budget" NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
During the presentation of the new graphics accelerators, NVIDIA showed three models at once: RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090. However, many players were also waiting for the younger RTX 3060 model. Apparently, gamers will have to wait, as NVIDIA plans to release two other video cards first.
It is reported that before the release of the RTX 3060, NVIDIA intends to first introduce the RTX 3060 Ti, which is scheduled for release in October. According to available information, this video card will be based on the GA104 GPU, which is also installed in the RTX 3070.
In comparison with RTX 3070, the number of CUDA cores in RTX 3060 Ti will be reduced by exactly 1024 - up to 4864 units. At the same time, the amount of memory will be the same as in the more powerful model — 8 GB GDDR6 with a maximum bandwidth of 448 GB/s. It is expected that the TDP level of the new model will be in the range from 180 to 200 watts. An 8-pin connector will be used for power supply.
Interestingly, in October, the RTX 3070 Ti is also expected to be presented, which should also be released earlier than the usual RTX 3060. The prices of new video cards have not yet been announced.
