NVIDIA is set to come out with its RTX 3070 and the RTX 3060 graphic cards. While the 3070 may be coming out on the 29th of October, the 3060 is set for a launch sometime in November. We find out some interesting news via VideoCardz.com. The website reveals certain information on the upcoming RTX 3060 which has been “leaked” in the Chinese market.
According to the article, there are a couple of Chinese listings which actually have the 3060 listed for sale. This is pretty absurd as the company hasn’t really made any official announcements regarding it either. The listings show that the card would available for about 2049 and or 2999 Yuans. The price would obviously range between these and this would loosely translate to about 300 to 400 dollars. For this, you would get the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti.
The 3060 Ti would be a powerful card and although it is aimed at the lower-tier mid-range series, for everyday casual gamers, it is quite the card. The card supports about 4864 CUDA cores with an amazing 8GB of GDDR6 memory. This makes it almost on par with the current 2080 which is a powerful unit on its own. It does make sense for it to be this powerful since the 3070 is claimed to have more juice than the current 2080 Ti.
Now, one may wonder if these listings are a scam. We would have believed so but given the manufacturing locations and the country, there is a good chance that the news and the specs they have of these cards are legit. Not to mention, the companies do state that the cards would be available sometime in November. This correlates with the theory that NVIDIA would be introducing the cards in November.
