Nvidia To Launch GeForce RTX 3060 8GB & RTX 3060 Ti 8GB GDDR6X In October

Only after a couple of weeks left until the official launch of Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards, it seems that the green camp has decided to extend the GeForce RTX 30 Series with 2 more graphics cards.

A few weeks ago, Twitter user @MEGAsizeGPU who has a history of reliable leaks, mentioned that Nvidia would be adding three more variants into their GeForce RTX 30 lineup, but at that time it was unclear when they would be launched. The source has since confirmed that at least 2 new models are planned. It is speculated that this decision is meant to offer more options to the mid-range segment.

The first model being manufactured by Nvidia is the 8 GB Variant of the GeForce RTX 3060. The original version of the GeForce RTX 3060 had a 12 GB VRAM and currently retails for $350 in the USA, so expecting a price of $300 for the GeForce RTX 3060 8GB is reasonable.

@MEGAsizeGPU has also confirmed an updated version of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, which will be upgraded to 8 GB of GDDR6X memory compared to the GDDR6 of the regular model. Assuming the rest of the specifications remain the same, the memory bandwidth has a potential increase from 448 GB/s to a whopping 608 GB/s. Currently, the original version retails for approximately $490 in the USA.

The GeForce RTX 3060 8GB,  and the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti are expected to be released by the end of October.  There is thus far no confirmation on the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with GA102 GPU.

With the GeForce RTX 40 Series set to launch on the 12th of October, less than two weeks away, it seems that Nvidia certainly has a very exciting month ahead. Will you be opting for the latest line of the RTX 40 Series, or will you wait for the release of the new variants of the GeForce RTX 30 Series? Let us know in the comments down below, and stay tuned for updates regarding the specs of these new mid-range graphics cards.
