According to Expreview, NVIDIA has allegedly postponed the launch of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card to December 2nd. This is contrary to previous reports that the model would launch on November 17th.

Technically this is not an official postponing, because NVIDIA never confirmed the launch date of the next SKU. In fact, the manufacturer has not even confirmed the RTX 3060 Ti itself.

The RTX 3060 Ti is a new upper mid-range graphics card that should land under a 400 USD price tag. The card would feature GA104 GPU with 4864 CUDA cores, which is exactly 1024 cores fewer than RTX 3070. Apart from this GPU modification, the RTX 3060 Ti would mirror the memory configuration of the RTX 3070: 8GB GDDR6 256 and 14 Gbps.

Expreview speculates that the RTX 3060 Ti would be faster than GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, which would not be too surprising considering RTX 3070 was already able to match RTX 2080 Ti performance.

The site refers to the new date as the launch date, meaning that the graphics cards should be available for sale in December. It is also unclear if NVIDIA is planning a Founders Edition model of RTX 3060 Ti.
