We knew about the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory in advance, but in addition to it, we also expected a model with 6 GB of memory and then possibly other versions such as the Ultra. In the end, only the RTX 3060 with just 12 GB of memory was introduced, for the price of 329 USD. Thus, this model ranks 80 USD below the RTX 3060 Ti, compared to which it will offer 4 GB more memory, but its performance will be about 13 TFLOPS in FP32, which is about 3 TFLOPS less.
We also learn about 25 RT-TFLOPS and 101 Tensor-TFLOPS, while GeForce RTX 3060 Ti offers 31.6 RT-TFLOPS and 129.6 Tensor-TFLOPS. It will then be equipped with a GA106-300 chip, ie as the first model it will use GA106, which will offer 3584 CUDA cores, 28 RT cores and 112 Tensor cores.
The card will arrive on the market at the end of February.
Then it was time for the new mobile GeForce, so there was no surprise on the part of NVIDIA, and it can be seen that it did not start in terms of preparing new desktop cards either. We only saw one and the allegedly planned RTX 3080 did not even mention you.
However, laptops will get the RTX 3080 equipped with up to 16 GB of memory for playing at 1440p at 100 or more FPS and Ultra quality. Then there will be a mobile RTX 3070 for playing in the same resolution, which will be about half faster than the RTX 2070, and finally it is a mobile RTX 3060 with higher performance than the RTX 2080.
In other words, the RTX 3060 with 12 GB of memory is coming, and then the mobile RTX 3080 with up to 16 GB of memory, which makes it clear that NVIDIA is currently trying to offer new cards that have significantly more memory than the first RTX 3000 to enter the market. . We can ask what else the company will do with it. There have been mentions that the Super versions of the RTX 3080 and 3070 will be available soon, but this cannot be relied on yet. However, in terms of memory capacity, NVIDIA’s new set of graphics cards is very messy, in stark contrast to AMD’s new offering, which in turn has (so far) three cards, all equipped with 16 GB of memory and the same capacity ( 128 MB) Infinity Cache in GPU.
We can only wait to see what the next steps for NVIDIA will be. It could prepare a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti with 20 GB of memory in the spring, but I personally don’t think that a memory-equipped version of the RTX 3080/3070/3060 Ti cards should appear soon.
