NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Ampere Launching Before the RTX 3060?

In possible anticipation of AMD's Radeon RX 6000 RDNA2 series, NVIDIA is reportedly fleshing out the upper performance segment of its GeForce RTX 30-series, with the RTX 3060 Ti reportedly launching before the RTX 3060. Early August, we heard reports of NVIDIA pushing its RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 series launches beyond September. It is turning out that way, as the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 launches dominate this month, with an RTX 3070 launching some time in October. There's still no official word on SKUs beyond the RTX 3070. VideoCardz has some idea. The RTX 3060 Ti - a possible RTX 2060 Super successor, in being launched before the RTX 3060.

Based on the same "GA104" silicon as the RTX 3070, the RTX 3060 Ti is configured with 4,864 CUDA cores, 38 RT cores, 152 Tensor cores, 152 TMUs, and possibly 64 ROPs. It comes with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit memory interface. Given that the RTX 3070 base specs cover 14 Gbps memory frequency, one can only expect the same (or lesser) memory frequency. With its typical board power expected to be between 180 W to 200 W, one can even expect custom-design cards with single 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

Noice!:) I wonder will it be possible to OC this thingy to RTX 2080Ti performance? Considering RTX 3070 will be faster than RTX 2080Ti.

Well, I hope so, it's the one I want to buy. The specifications look right, hopefully, they will be around the $325-$350 price points and faster than an RTX2080/Super.

3060 is the upper part of their product stack now? Not the mid-range?

By default this should be above 2080 Super performance and even close to default 2080Ti.

If priced right this might be a good gen.

The rumor is around 350$ for the 3060ti and 300 for the 3060

That would mean those selling the 2080 Ti right now for ~500$ are still getting a good deal even for that money, those buying, not so much.

2060 Super was $399. So expect that price.

Still to early to speculate, considering that rdna2 would launch in mid November (and that's already stretching it).

56 ROPs if it has similar config as GA102, too many TPCs are missing to have the full 64

How low will Turing get now, if those specs are to believed the 3060(ti) won't be far from the 2080ti and definitely faster than the 2080(s) while having the same amount of vram.
Turing was so stupidly overpriced.

Oh geez people, come on already...

This is a sucker play, no doubt about it...

Regardless of specs, launch the higher priced card 1st, with no word about the lower priced card, and get as much cash as possible from those suckers that see the "ti" thingy and just have to jump on it just because they think it is moar better than the other, non-hyped card..

how many moar times do they need to do this before folks wise up ?????

The same amount of times you post incessant hate and walk from threads? :p

On a more serious note, this is the way it is... it isn't about learning anything, really. The only bit of knowledge you need is if high-end or mid-range is coming out first. Something else always seems to come out. There is always something better around the corner. Buy when you are ready (for the most part).

Well, considering how nVidia changed their price/performance structures for the better, I personally believe it will be lower than $400.

Jensen at one point said he wants every gamer to have and experience RTX, something he contradicted himself with when he launched the GTX1650/1660 cards though. Maybe with this generation of RTX cards, it might become a reality, who knows, but the prices will definitely have to be priced according to your everyday gamers' means.

It's not "hate" when it is the truth/reality.... when mfgr's do this kind of lowlife crap, then I have no problem calling it exactly what it is:

G.R.E.E.E.E.D....

And yes, I am walking....straight to my bank, to deposit moar of my money while I wait for all the marketing hype/sku conglomeration to settle down, then I will decide whether to buy a new GPU or not :)

Hmmm Nvidia already leaking info on mid range cards? This helps to support my thought process that Big Navi will be great. Before we get too carried away I am only referencing based on my own experience.

Would be interesting if the 'TI' variant launches first before the regular version of the 3060. Personally, I would not expect that because normally it seems the 'TI' variations of the cards come later after a more matured process (Not always but alot of the time).

They didn't change anything. RTX 2070 was $499, RTX 3070 is $499. RTX 2080 was $699, RTX 3080 is $699. People just praising Nvidia this time for doing some performance improvement worth talking about compared to Pascal - Turing situation. Seems like PC gamers have memory capacity of a goldfish. Because 70 segment graphics card having performance as previous generation 80Ti card is nothing new. 970 was as fast as 780Ti, 1070 was as fast as 980Ti. Same thing happening now. 3070 being as fast as 2080Ti. But since RTX 2000 series, prices have gone up considerably. Especially for top card.

well if 3080 is 25% faster than 2080Ti, and 3060TI has 8704/4864 55% shaders. and 760/448 59% bandwidth, it means 3080 is 80% faster than 3060Ti, so I dont see how possibly could 3070 be faster than 2080Ti. Yeah. 3060Ti is barely 2070. 2080 best case
