NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti

The first mid-range Ampere card to launch this year is GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, likely to be the first SKU in these series. We now have two sources confirming that the next graphics card in the Ampere GeForce RTX 30 series is RTX 3060 Ti. There is currently no confirmation on RTX 3060 non-Ti launch date. The non-Ti model is expected to feature a third Ampere GPU – GA106 – presumably not yet ready for launch.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will feature GA104-200 GPU with 4864 CUDA cores (1024 cores or 8 SMs fewer than RTX 3070). Similarly to RTX 3070, this model will feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 Gbps. The bus width will remain at 256-bits and this should provide 448 GB/s of bandwidth.

Naturally, this model will require less power. We are told that custom boards are rated at 200W, which implies that the reference board is somewhere near 180W. If this number is correct then RTX 3060 Ti will consume slightly more power than RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 SUPER, both rated a 175W.

The launch date has not yet been confirmed, but internal roadmaps point toward the end of October. We might hear more about this SKU at GeForce RTX 3070 launch. We are not sure entirely why NVIDIA decided to launch the Ti model first, but one would guess that AMD might have a strong mid-range offer where RTX 3060 would simply not offer a firm competition.
