NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Confirmed, Beats RTX 2080 SUPER

It looks like NVIDIA will launch its 4th GeForce RTX 30-series product ahead of Holiday 2020, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, with VideoCardz unearthing a leaked NVIDIA performance guidance slide, as well as pictures of custom-design RTX 3060 Ti cards surfacing on social media. The RTX 3060 Ti is reportedly based on the same 8 nm "GA104" silicon as the RTX 3070, but cut down further. It features 38 out of 48 streaming multiprocessors physically present on the "GA104," amounting to 4,864 "Ampere" CUDA cores, 152 tensor cores, and 38 "Ampere" RT cores. The memory configuration is unchanged from the RTX 3070, which means you get 8 GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface, with 448 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

According to a leaked NVIDIA performance guidance slide for the RTX 3060 Ti, the company claims the card to consistently beat the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, a $700 high-end SKU from the previous "Turing" generation. The same slide also shows a roughly 40% performance gain over the previous generation RTX 2060 SUPER, which is probably the logical predecessor for this card. In related news, PC Master Race (OfficialPCMR) on its Facebook page posted pictures of boxes of an ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC graphics cards, which confirms the existence of this SKU. The picture of the card on the box reveals a design similar to other TUF Gaming RTX 30-series cards launched by ASUS so far. As for price, VideoCardz predicts a $399 MSRP for the SKU, which should nearly double the price-performance for this card over the RTX 2080 SUPER at NVIDIA's performance numbers.

nothing new, x060 always getting better than the previous sweetest x080 but for 50-100$ more, so we are looking for a 600$ x060 the next few years, good job people keep buying nvidia for the same dumb prices.

I genuinely think its gonna stop this generation just like they stopped intel with the 10 years in a row 4 cores at 400$



god bless amd we should all be grateful

No stock, and an effective retail price of +100€ over the recommended price .
"because of the overwhelming demand" ..
Press should really investigate those claims of " hi demand" ... Cause If you look at retailer that publish the number of unit they sale (like mindfactory) (one of the main a german retailer).. you start see an other picture..

I believe RTX 3060 will be same as RX 5700XT/2070S. Will RTX 3060 have 6GB, 12GB or 8GB? Because predicted RTX 3050 Ti has 6GB VRAM and it has 3584 cores. If RTX 3060 has 3840 cores and 6GB VRAM, RTX 3060 will be pointless, RTX 3050 Ti and 3060 Ti will be better than RTX 3060 in price/perf. On the other hand, RX 6700 and 6700 XT will have 12GB VRAM. If RX 6700 XT has 2560 cores, its performance will be same as 2080. Also, RX 6700 will be same as 2070S.
My thought which is about comparison:
1650S < RTX 3050 = RX 6500 < RTX 2060 < RTX 3050 Ti <RTX 2070 = RX 6600 < RTX 2070S = RTX 3060 = RX 6700 < RX 6700 XT < RTX 3060 Ti < RTX 2080 Ti = RTX 3070 < RX 6800 < RX 6800 XT = RTX 3080 < RTX 3090 = RX 6900 XT

I believe very few people people buy card at dumb prices... those card are just not manufactured in volume , and only a few people buy them at those prices.
the retailer I mentioned above sold more than 200.000 Amd processors 3xxx in a year. about 35.000 Radeon Rx 5Xxx during the same time.
530 ! RTX 3xxx (200 rtx 3090, 30 rtx 3080, 300 RTX 3070).

If they only sold 530 pieces of Nvidia, ite because they can't get the card..

and about AMD 5xxx launch its kind of the same, if you only deliver 50 to 100 CPU (5600x)/week to a shop that in the past sold 226 CPU( 3600x) a day.. well...

A healthy performance improvement, but I'm not comfortable with the price for a x60 card.

400$ is atrocious but then again it's not their fault if people put with these constant price hikes.

Not that it will matter for the time being as there wont be many out there because of the "unprecedented demand".

Compared to 2060 Super, same price, same TDP and minimum 40% performance increase, overall very good .

This will probably be my next upgrade. It should have a nice 50% uplift from my 1070 Ti. Too bad AMD did not announce something around the 400$ price range.

The pricing is too high for what it is, the 3070 should've been priced around the 400 mark.

I get it they've got to keep up with inflation but dang. Consoles have caught up and asking this much for the xx60+ is too much. I love my computer but I'm a gamer before a pcmasterrace snob.

You can say whatever you want, but PC gaming legit is dying for me if this is kept up:


I bought my HD6950 + Dirt 3 for 200 euro brand new, those are prices I can get behind, now a 60 sku from big N costs 400..probably more like 500 euro...that used to be the price range of near high end.

And I know I know not everything has been bad, mostly just GPU's, thanks to AMD prices cpu's are fine like a 3600 for 200 bucks, good stuff.

We need something to fill the $350-$500 gap.

There was zero competition north of $400 where the 5700XT stopped and it showed, badly, over the last year and a half. 2060S was generally the worse buy over a 5700 card unless you really invested into RTX or DLSS (and as someone who did, the first-gen RTX was utter rubbish, IMO)

The 3060Ti is probably going to be too expensive to fill the popular price; Traditionally the most expensive cards that sell in real volume are the ones in the sub-$300 market. Even accounting for inflation and sanctions against China, AMD and Nvidia both need something compelling at $275, coming in at under $300 even for the factory OC models.

Right now, having $350-500 means there is no sensible choice for GPU purchase. Your nvidia options all suck because they're lousy 1st-Gen RTX and terrible performance/$ compared to more expensive 3000-series. Your AMD options lack DXR support and only look reasonable compared to the lousy RTX 2000-series options. The 3070 would be nice if it was actually available, or actually $500 but both of those things aren't going to be a reality for at least 3 months, I suspect.

Then stick to 1080p High details, no offense, but a 200$ GPU is adequate for 60 fps in those conditions. My RX 570 is fine within those settings.
But if you want 1440p, 4K or above 60 fps you have to get a 400, 600 or 1000$ GPU something around my 1070 Ti or above performance level.

You are forgetting that back then you probably played at 1680x1050 or 1280x1024. And 144Hz monitors were barley getting in the market at phenomenal prices, also they were 1080p TN crap. Today you can get IPS or VA at 144Hz for about 200$.

There are still capable cards to be had for ~$200. Are you saying them not carrying the same x60 label is the deal breaker for you?

I agree on some of your arguments, but what is the price of gtx 1660 and or 1660 super? those cards are the direct replacement of gtx 960 / 1060. rtx cards are different. for the record AMD just pushed the 8 core and 6 core cpu prices upto 450 and 300 respectively. none of them are saints. they just want to milk you.

Actually back then I did 2042x1536 @ 85hz sooo yeah not to mention that HD6950 was also build for the future with its 2gb of Vram etc, today that would cost 400 euro as well, but it didn't, it cost 200, 200 for a videocard is fine, heck even 300 I can live with...but 800...for an ok-ish videocard? really?

Also because resolution goes up and games become more demanding...the gpus should also cost more?

I mean that is why Im buying A NEW GPU in the first place and not sticking with the old thing forever right?
The problem is that the new gpu for the sku has completely jumped in price to imo rediculous levels.

And I do feel I have to emphasis the "imo" here, if the current prices is not issue for you, great, but for me its heavily been withholding me from upgrading, its not that I cant afford it, I just dont want to pay that much for IMO relatively not blazingly impressive performance

100% agree! Now with the new consoles out with 8-core Ryzen, 16GB of RAM plus ~2080ti equivalent GPU for only $500, paying $100 less JUST for a GPU that has less performance is ridiculous. Both Nvidia and AMD will need to adjust prices next year when console stocks are healthy otherwise it'll be 2007 again when PC was considered dead.

Every time a new console generation is released, PC gaming is declared dead. Mostly by people who don't understand the differences between platforms.
