The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is said to feature 4864 CUDA cores with 152 Tensor cores and 38 RT cores. This makes the new mid-range GPU faster than the last year’s RTX 2080 SUPER, and much like last year, the RTX 3060 Ti is supposed to cost 399 USD, launching on December 2nd. The 3060 Ti has a silver-tone 12-pin power cable; however, it comes with an adapter.
So, the new RTX 3060 Ti GPU from NVIDIA is much more exciting than it seems because even though it will eventually cost under $400, it is more powerful than an RTX 2080 Super. Yes, it’s that powerful, proof? Thanks to @TUM_APISAK, we have that as well.
As we see, the prolific leaker has spotted the upcoming NVIDIA GPU on Geekbench, and the scores seem promising as well. Previously it was leaked as well, but this time, we have a lot of scores to compare the GPUs against:
The GPU is confirmed to have 38 CUs, 8 GB VRAM, 1.67 GHz max frequency, and in the benchmark, we see it paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU. As we see, in the OpenCL benchmarks, the RTX 3060 Ti to score a huge 123279 points, which put it above the RTX 2080 Super and just behind the powerful and overpriced RX 6800.
In CUDA benchmarks also the RTX 3060 Ti GPU scores a whopping 133974 points, which not only makes it faster than an RTX 2080 SUPER but also just shy of the RTX 3070 that posts 145060 points.
There’s no exception to results we see in VULKAN benchmarks as well, where we see the new RTX 3060 Ti beating the RTX 2080 Super comfortably.
On paper, the upcoming budget cum mid-range GPU looks great, however, do note these benchmarks are not acute, and comparing them with accurate charts is just for reference. So, even though you cannot expect the same performance from all the upcoming RTX 3060 Ti GPUs, we can still get a fair idea of how well this GPU will be for budget gamers.
