Nvidia is finally officially launching two new GPU models, the 8GB GeForce RTX 3060 and the RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory. These would be the last two RTX 30 series graphics cards to be released.
Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X and RTX 3060 8GB are officially launched
Nvidia drivers already support the new GeForce RTX 3060 8GB and RTX 3060 Ti GPUs with GDDR6X memory, so these become official Nvidia models trying to fill the gaps the green company believes are vacant.
»Additional versions of GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and 3060
To give gamers and creators more choices, we’re introducing a couple of additional options from our network of graphics card partners worldwide, starting in November.
The first is a faster GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory, in addition to the original version with GDDR6 memory. The second is a GeForce RTX 3060 with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
These new options are supported as of today’s Game Ready driver. For more details on each option, please visit the GeForce RTX 3060 Family product page on GeForce.com.”
The RTX 3060 graphics card has a capacity of 8 GB with a 128-bit memory bus. Memory bandwidth is limited to 240 GB/s, down 120 GB/s from the original model. This way, the GA106 GPU comes equipped with 3584 CUDA-enabled cores.
The new RTX 3060 Ti model comes equipped with GDDR6X, so it essentially goes the other way. Thanks to its new memory modules, the bandwidth is increased to 608 GB/s. The GA104 GPU still has around 4864 CUDA cores.
