ASUS has confirmed two upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards, namely GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060. Both graphics cards are planned to be launched in early 21st, but ASUS has listed them under the support and service page.
ASUS GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB and GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB ROG STRIX custom graphics cards confirmed
HXL (@ 9550pro) found these two types of graphics cards on the graphics card support and service page of ASUS. The list includes GeForce RTX 30 series ROG STRIX variants, and also mentions the unreleased GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards we talked about in previous leaks.
The leak confirmed that Asustek is developing overclocked and non-overclocked versions of its ROG STRIX series of products. GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will be equipped with 20 GB of GDDR6X memory, and GeForce RTX 3060 will be equipped with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory. Since both cards are customized versions, they will use the new ROG STRIX cooling solution that we have seen in the existing GeForce RTX 30 ROG STRIX series products, hoping to achieve top cooling performance and powerful custom PCB design.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti’Rumored’ graphics card specifications
The detailed information of Kopite7kimi shows that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti FE (Founders Edition) graphics card will use the PG133-SKU15 PCB design and the GA102-250-KD-A1 graphics core. Since the last time we saw them, the GA102-250 GPU has also changed and is now exactly the same as the GeForce RTX 3090 on the 10496 FP32 CUDA core.
As for memory, the card will have 20 GB of GDDR6X memory. Unlike the 19.5 Gbps speed of the RTX 3090, it is said that the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti maintains the same storage speed as the RTX 3080 at 19 Gbps. Since we got a 20 GB bus interface, NVIDIA will use a 320-bit bus interface with a total bandwidth of 760 GB/s. The card’s TGP is set to be the same as the 320-watt RTX 3080. It is absolutely necessary to provide additional cores, so NVIDIA may need to optimize the clock here.
NVIDIA may undercut the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, which is the RTX 3080 Ti’s US graphics card priced at $999, although we must see the difference in the Ti variant because it will eventually be sandwiched by the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 In the middle, it was reported that due to the higher clock speed of the RTX 3080 Ti, its final operating speed may be faster than that of the RTX 3090, and the RTX 3090 will still be a Titan product with a higher VRAM buffer for enthusiasts and content Creation market service.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 “rumor” graphics card specifications
It is recommended that GeForce RTX 3060 be equipped with GA106-400 GPU, and 3840 FP32 cores are expected to be equipped in a total of 30 SM units. The graphics card will be used by GA104 and GA106 pin-compatible motherboard partners using the PG190 SKU. The memory specification range of this graphics card has been updated from 6 GB (14 Gbps) and is now listed as 12 GB (16 Gbps).
There are rumors that the card will be equipped with a 12 GB large memory buffer, which is larger than the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 or even RTX 3080. This has not been confirmed, but the reason may be that NVIDIA wants to really solve AMD in the mainstream market. Similarly, we have also seen rumors that RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 have 20 GB and 16 GB, respectively, but because they were early designs, they were cancelled later, and they were not established in the end.
The card will have a 192-bit bus interface and a 16 Gbps rate, which can provide up to 384 GB/s of bandwidth. The final price of the GeForce RTX 3060 is $299, which will make it a powerful graphics card.
