The next video card from Nvidia will be officially the RTX 3060 Ti. How can we be sure? The adapter specifications were sent to the database first GPU-Z for validation and subsequently several Chinese retailers in Taobao listed the card as available for order. Therefore, the official announcement should not be much longer.
GPU-Z validation was first discovered by TechPowerUp’s CPU and GPU database editor Matthew Smith. The discovery must have been taken by surprise, after all, the RTX 3060 Ti is a card that was never officially named by the company where we found Jensen Huang. The RTX 3060 Ti was expected to arrive on the market mid-November or, at the latest, the first period of December to fight the family of AMD Radeon RX 6700 GPUs based on Navi 22.
According GPU-Z database, who received a card validation request on October 25 from an anonymous user, the RTX 3060 Ti should use a simplified version of GA104 GPU, the same as that found on board the RTX 3070. No SKU number is specified, although earlier rumors indicated the model for this card GA104-200. RTX 3060 You can count on 4864 core CUDA, 80 ROP, a basic clock 1410 MHz while in boost, it will reach 1665 MHz.
According to these specifications, the card must have 16.2 TFLOPS of power, not bad for what is theoretically a variant with watch stock and not a version with custom design. As for memory, the RTX 3060 Ti must have 8 GB of GDDR6 memory on a data bus 256 bits. The memory card clock was recorded in 1750 MHz, which means that the memory will have a speed of 14 Gbps, for a total bandwidth 448 GB / s.
Returning to the question of availability, the card appeared on the list of some retailers on Taobao. Chinese e-commerce card prices are between 2,049 yuan and 2,999 yuan, that is, between 258 euros and 378 euros. As Videocardz colleagues point out, the cards shown in the images of the ads should not be RTX 3060 Ti, however it is rumored that they will be very similar to the RTX 3070.
Availability is certain for sure after the end of November, however no precise date is indicated.
