NVIDIA isn’t done with the GeForce RTX 30 Series and is planning to launch two new GeForce RTX 3060 models by the end of October, according to sources with VideoCardz. The new GeForce RTX 3060 will reportedly feature 8 GB of memory, 4 GB less than the standard version, while the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is said to feature GDDR6X memory.
From a VideoCardz report:
NVIDIA is set to launch RTX 3060 with 8GB VRAM, so 4GB less than the original model. The current model sells at $350 in US, so sub $300 price for this new 8GB variant is possible.
Furthermore, NVIDIA is also making an updated RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory, Just assuming it has the same 19 Gbps memory as RTX 3070 Ti, the memory bandwidth would increase from 448 GB/s to 608 GB/s (36% increase).
There is thus far no confirmation on the RTX 3070 Ti with GA102 GPU, however as mentioned before, such models are often localized and not globally marketed. An example from RTX 30 series is RTX 3060 Ti with GA103 GPU, which is only available through some board partners in China.
The rumors of new GeForce RTX 30 Series SKUs initially surfaced from MEGAsizeGPU, who alleged last week that NVIDIA was planning two new GeForce RTX 3060 models, as well as a new GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
