A GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with additional memory has been rumored since Ampere’s launch. While there aren’t many games breaking the 10 GB barrier yet, more are expected, which could lead to a problem for the standard GeForce RTX 3080. NVIDIA has also been diversifying its lineup with the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. Igor Wallossek has shared potential release dates for future GPUs.

GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti was spotted last week in HP drivers along with other unannounced cards. With 20 GB of VRAM, it will be NVIDIA’s answer to AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series (16 GB of VRAM). Further refinements such as increased cores and clock speeds are also expected. Igor’s sources have indicated that NVIDIA could delay the release of this card until the end of February.

GeForce RTX 3060

The GeForce RTX 3060 might be released as the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. NVIDIA could be planning two versions of the GeForce RTX 3060, one with 6 GB of VRAM and another with 12 GB. This would repeat a pattern we saw with GeForce 1060 cards, which had 3 GB and 6 GB versions. The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti could be the 6 GB variant rebranded as one of the GeForce RTX 3060s, but this could be confusing for buyers. NVIDIA is planning to announce these cards at the virtual CES 2021 in January with a possible launch at the end of that month.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
