NVIDIA drivers now support new GeForce RTX 3060 GPUs

NVIDIA finally confirms new GPUs, after several board partners announced new designs.

Official support for the new RTX 3060 series arrives today. NVIDIA has just released a new driver with support for two RTX 3060 models. Both cards were introduced this week by select board partners. Interestingly, the official announcement does not include RTX 3070 Ti with GA102 GPU.

Additional Versions Of GeForce RTX 3060 Ti & 3060

To give more choices to gamers and creators, we’re introducing a couple of additional options from our network of graphics card partners worldwide, starting in November.

First is a faster GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory, in addition to the original version with GDDR6 memory. Second is a GeForce RTX 3060 with 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

Both new options are supported starting with today’s Game Ready Driver. For more details on each option, visit the GeForce RTX 3060 family product page on GeForce.com.

GeForce RTX 3060 gets a new 8GB variant with 128-bit memory bus. This model has identical specs in terms of clocks and TDP, but the bandwidth is limited to 240 GB/s. That’s a loss of 120 GB/s, so probably impactful for high-fidelity gaming. This card comes with Ampere GA106 GPU equipped with 3584 CUDA cores.

The RTX 3060 Ti will now be available with GDDR6X memory, so essentially going the opposite way. New memory increases the bandwidth to 608 GB/s. The configuration of the GA104 GPU has not changed, and this model will still feature 4864 CUDA cores. The GDDR6X upgrade only applies to the memory type, but the capacity remains the same at 8GB across 256-bit.
