Remember the six-month era during which information appeared about the improved GeForce RTX 3080, which was supposed to have 20GB of memory, 12GB there, in the meantime the number of stream processors, bus width and clock varied, until finally a 12GB model came out? Now it seems clear why 20 GB was supposed to be installed by the end of 2020, but half a year later only 12 GB was enough: Nvidia decided to keep the configuration with higher memory capacity for a half-generation refresh, GeForce RTX 3000 Super.
It is thus possible to expect the settlement of certain illogicalities, such as when the GeForce RTX 3060 has 12 GB of graphics memory, why it is 2/3 faster GeForce RTX 3070 Ti equipped with only 8 GB and the like. Slight changes to the graphics chip configuration are also likely to occur; however, the focus of this half-generation should be a modified memory configuration.
Nvidia is currently preparing to begin series production, which should begin in the current (third) quarter, sometime between July and September. We do not know exactly what is meant by serial production – whether only the assembly of cards, or even the start of production of the chips themselves. In the latter case, the cards themselves can be expected to be issued no earlier than 4 months after the start of production, which would mean that the GeForce RTX 3000 Super is heading for either the pre-Christmas markets 2021 or the CES 2022.
It is not yet known that AMD is planning a similar half-generation to emerge as a new competitor to the Super line. In the past, there were fragmentary rumors that RDNA 2 would be refreshed before Christmas, but it died down many months ago. With current demand and production capacity, AMD doesn’t see the point in modifying the configurations of current products and they will remain on the market until the next generation is released.
