Nvidia presents the new GeForce RTX 3060 8 GB and RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X

Some partners have already talked about it, but now we can officially present new versions of the GeForce RTX 3060, faster than ever, so close (on paper) to the big brother RTX 3070. Advent in the markets from November and the confirmation by NVIDIA itself was followed by the release of new drivers, which in the changelog indicate their compatibility with the new models in question. Unfortunately, at the moment the official product page does not publish new maps, so the known details are only partial.

As the company itself says, the first is a Faster GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory Compared with the original version with GDDR6 memory, and it carries new memory But it is increased to 608 GB/s . The second is the GeForce RTX 3060 with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, with a bandwidth of 448 GB / s.

The GA104 GPU configuration has not changed and both models still have 4864 CUDA cores. The GDDR6X upgrade only applies to the type of memory, but the capacity remains the same, which is 8 GB at 256 bits.

The base version of the GeForce RTX 3060 also appeared in a the new 8 GB variant with a 118-bit memory bus . The model has identical clock and TDP specifications, but the bandwidth is limited to 240 GB/s, which is 120 GB/s less than the previous model and this should be carried out systematically in higher titles. This card comes with an Ampere GA106 GPU equipped with 3584 CUDA cores.

One of the first partners to formalize its version is Galaxy, which announces its own RTX 3060 Ti Plus equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6X memory . The company has provided a performance preview of the RTX 3070 with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The battle between the 5888 CUDA cores of the RTX 3070 and the 4864 cores of the RTX 3060 Ti, but also between the 448 GB/s and the 608 GB/s of bandwidth, in this case the superior 3060 Ti.

The comparison lacks specific details and is more like a 3 game capture program with random scenes that are not aligned with each other. However, we can see that the RTX 3060 Ti G6X often shows a higher frame rate than the RTX 3070 in similar scenes, such as Spider-Man Remastered and Cyberpunk 2077.

As I mentioned at the beginning, Nvidia has not updated its website and store yet, so we will have to wait a little longer for official answers, detailed tests and everything that allows us to get our hands on a profile that has a serious effect. We’ll talk about that in the coming weeks.
