It appears that January will be a huge month for NVIDIA fans – particularly for those who are seeking a midrange graphics card. VideoCardz has learned that the GeForce RTX 3060 will debut that month, alongside the recently rumored GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and GeForce RTX 3050.
“We have already confirmed that NVIDIA is planning to launch its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in January, however, this high-end SKU is not the only model being planned for this month,” VideoCardz reported. “In January NVIDIA is also planning to launch GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3050 Ti, and RTX 3050. The 3050 Ti was originally planned for February, but it appears that the plans have been changed recently.”
Assuming that there aren’t any delays and/or stock issues, NVIDIA users who are on a smaller budget will have three new Ampere GPUs to choose from at the beginning of the new year. The alleged time frame also lends credence to those rumors of AMD’s midrange Radeon RX 6000 Series (e.g., Radeon RX 6700 XT) debuting sometime in January.
Pricing for these GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs haven’t been confirmed, but the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will supposedly cost no more than $450. The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti also allegedly costs $999 – the same price as AMD’s flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT.
