New Nvidia RTX 3060 GPUs could mean good news for your wallet but however, could be bad news for the RTX 4060. The supposedly new incoming spin on the RTX 3060 could be a lot cheaper.
New Nvidia RTX 3060 GPUs Could Mean Good News for Your Wallet
Graphics card-making company Nvidia could have a host of new spins on its latest-generation graphics cards that will soon be upon us, going by the chatter in the grapevine.
The belief specifically is that an RTX 3060 with 8GB of VRAM rather than 12GB is currently in the pipeline for October ending. The card also is having the memory bus purportedly beat down to 128-bit rather than 192-bit.
Nvidia RTX 3060 GPUs Would Appear Alongside the RTX 3060 Ti
You should also know that this would appear alongside an RTX 3060 Ti which also has the same amount of VRAM as it had 8GB already, but is equipped with a faster GDDR6X memory rather than just the plain GDDR6. This presumably will be 19Gbps video RAM such as seen on the 3070 Ti. That being said, it will be bringing in an increase in bandwidth of just over a third.
This rumor was previously carried by MegaSizeGPU on Twitter and it now has more weight after Videocardz talked to its sources and apparently got word from makers of graphics cards that these new models of the RTX 3060 are indeed planned. This is a supposed plan by Nvidia to expand its portfolio of mid-range GPUs in times when the competition keeps growing.
Various New Ampere Variations May As Well Be Planned According To MegaSizeGPU
Many more new Ampere variations may as well be planned according to MegaSizeGPU, but that pair of RTX 3060 refreshes are the only models for which we have VideoCardz’s assurance that they are really happening.
Another rumor points at an RTX 3070 Ti with a GA102 GPU which is that very chip that helps to power the RTX 3090 and 3080. If that should ever happen, you should that that it may be specific to regions such as Asia only.
