Just days after the newest member of the GeForce RTX 30 Series family, namely GeForce RTX 3070 was launched, a new graphics card by Nvidia – GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is expected to launch, but not until mid-November. The new graphics card is being listed by retailers on Chinese marketplace even though Nvidia has not yet confirmed it publically.
The cards’ pre-order price on Taobao retailers varies between 2049 to 2999 Yuan ($305 to $446). The new RTX 3060 Ti is an upper mid-range graphics card and while there is no official details yet, an industry source tells Videocardz that the MSRP will not exceed $400. The sellers are expecting that the RTX 3060 Ti should be delivered on November 30.
As per the current information relating to the card’s specifications, the RTX 3060 Ti is based on the GA104 GPU (the same chip used in the RTX 3070 – albeit a cutdown version). The RTX 3060 Ti also offers 4,864 CUDA cores, 152 Tensor cores and 38 RT cores. The core clocks will be slightly lower than those on the RTX 3070, but the card should feature the same 14 Gbps 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM with a 256-bit bus. In addition, the cut-down specs would lead to TGPs that could go as low as 180 W and as high as 200 W.
According to sources the RTX 3060 Ti is expected to launch in mid-November, but as per the latest rumors the launch of the new graphics card will be postponed to early December. Perhaps we’ll hear more about it when Nvidia officially confirms the launch date of the new graphics card.
