Previous rumors revolve around a new NVIDIA RTX 3060Ti Already happening, Asus revealed its updated take on the popular Ampere GPU.
The only difference compared to current TUF RTX 3060 Ti boards is that 8GB of VRAM is faster. Instead of 14Gbps GDDR6 video RAM, the updated cards use 19GDDR6X memory, dramatically increasing memory bandwidth from 448GB/s to 608GB/s.
That’s the only change here, other than that, the base CUDA count, hours, and all other specs remain the same.
VideoCardz reports that increasing memory bandwidth leads to a 7%-10% increase in better performance based on 3DMark results.
Analysis: Will VRAM actually make a big difference?
Of course, synthetic benchmarks are a useful indicator, but what we really want to see is how much of a difference faster VRAM makes in real-world games (across the usual variety of titles to get an overall perspective on the actual impact on boosting frame rates).
There will obviously be some performance boost, but it could be that it’s a relatively minor boost. However, depending on pricing, and how subtle a difference the new GDDR6X RAM makes — which the jury’s still out on, of course — this new spin on the RTX 3060 Ti might be a compelling buy. And we must bear in mind that recently, the vanilla 3060 Ti (finally) began to see Some big price drops.
He said that, with Nvidia pursues ‘multi-layered’ launch strategy Next-gen RTX 4000 graphics cards roll out at a slow pace (and indeed Reverse course with someone, ‘release canceled’) – it remains to be seen when the mid-range Lovelace will appear, with rumors suggesting it might not be for some time yet. (Remember, Nvidia has a massive amount of RTX 3000 stock that needs to be cleared.)
And in that case, we could be stuck with the RTX 3060 and the Ti variant (including this newer version of the latter, of course) for some time now, so the price may become less likely to drop, and probably flat out as a result, at least for now.
