The Taiwan OEM giant ASUS has recently confirmed that NVIDIA’s two upcoming GPUs are not very far away from launch, scheduled coming in early 2021. This is because the brand has listed both of the cards in their supports and services page.
Now, recently spotted by HXL (@9550pro), in the GeForce RTX 30 series ROG STRIX variants, you have both GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards. It is not unusual as NVIDIA is rumored to launch the RTX 3060 next month followed by RTX 3080 Ti soon.
Asus does make a lot of wild variants of these GPUs including overclocked and non-overclocked variants. However, with these listings, they have seemingly confirmed the fact that the RTX 3080 Ti will feature 20 GB of GDDR6X memory whereas the GeForce RTX 3060 will feature 12 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Apart from the VRAM, as per the leaked specs, the RTX 3080 Ti will have memory speeds of 19 Gbps, and it will be using a 320-bit bus interface equaling to a bandwidth of 760 GB/s. On the other hand, the total power consumed by the GPU will be 320 Watts and its also rumoured that the pricing of this GPU could match the pricing of the new RX 6900 XT at $999.
Coming to the mid-range RTX 3060, it is said to feature 3840 FP32 cores in a total of 30 SM units. The total VRAM is still in doubt as leaks of both 6 GB (14 Gbps), and 12 GB (16 Gbps) have come out, but most likely NVIDIA could end up using the former memory.
The GeForce RTX 3060 should come with 192-bit bus interface and if it has 16 Gbps memory speed, the total memory bandwidth sums up to 384 GB/s. The GPU could end up being priced at $299 and it will not be long enough to know what actually the pricing or specs will be as NVIDIA will be hosting an event on January 12th.
