The launch of the 30-series graphics has been terrible for Nvidia. The supply of the graphics card is so low that scalpers have put their GPUs on sites like eBay to profit. We reported that Nvidia could only cater to 7% of the total RTX 3080 demand, which is abysmal, to say the least. Another thing to note here is that other than delaying the launch of RTX 3070, Nvidia has mostly remained quiet.
Now, rumors regarding a new set of SKUs based on the Ampere architecture are starting to pop-up. Inno3D, an AIB board partner of Nvidia, has mistakenly confirmed the RTX 3060 Ti graphics card’s existence. According to a report from Videocardz, the graphics card provider’s site now has a filter for the RTX 3060 Ti. Although the sections contain no information at the moment, it confirms that the graphics card exists, and the release date is very near.
Similar to it, a few days ago, a Saudi retailer posted a video on its Facebook page showing boxes of the RTX 3060 Ti. The xx60 SKUs from Nvidia are usually a value deal for gamers on a budget because the graphics cards offer very high value per dollar. The RTX 3060 Ti will be a sub $400 graphics card featuring the same GA 104 GPU present in the RTX 3070 but with a lower number of active SMs (streaming multiprocessor).
According to recent rumors, the mid-range graphics card will feature 4864 CUDA cores, 152 Tensor cores, and 38 RT cores. It will feature the same memory configuration as the RTX 3070 graphics card. Lastly, Nvidia wanted to launch the graphics card in mid-November, but due to supply issues and competition from AMD, the launch is now delayed to early December. Videocardz asserts that 2nd December will be the tentative launch date of the GPU.
