GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 20 GB and RTX 3060 12 GB Inbound; Super Models Planned

Further rumours suggest the imminent launch of the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3060 12GB GPUs. There are also rumors of the series being refreshed with the addition of Super models.

IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. There have been further rumors about Nvidia's new GPU models.
  2. Soon, RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3060 12 GB should be available.
  3. Once again, there are rumors of the Super version refreshing the series.

Nvidia's new GPUs should be released soon. A large list of undisclosed models that Gigabyte plans to launch appeared on the website of the Eurasian Economic Commission.

Information from the website confirms, that the company has plans to release GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which will appear on the market in several versions - AORUS Xtreme, AORUS Master, Vision, Gaming, Eagle and Turbo. GeForce RTX 3060 12GB will also be released in Eagle, Vision and Gaming version.

The official announcement is expected on January 12, during a special conference, which Nvidia plans to organize. GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB on 192 bit rail would be on sale in January, and RTX 3080 Ti - in February, after the end of Chinese New Year celebrations. GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will mostly offer similar specs to RTX 3090, and the slightly weaker model will have 20 GB of 19Gbps memory on 320 bit rail, which will translate to a 760 GB/s memory bandwidth. The TBP is to be 320 W, which is 30 watts less than in the case of the company's most powerful model. All this for $999 (500 less than RTX 3090).

For a few weeks now, there's been an increasing number rumors about new GPU models that Nvidia is planning to launch on the market. In addition to RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3060 12 GB, plans to refresh the RTX 3000 series with Super models are said to be in motion. More specifically, two GPU models - 3080 Super and 3070 Super.

This time, the information comes from a proven leaker - kopite7kimi, who shares his findings on Twitter from time to time.

The recurring question is how Nvidia would position the new graphics cards. According to speculation, Super models would have more VRAM, CUDA cores, slightly better clock, and - at least in the case RTX 3080 SUPER - a wider data bus. However, if the cards do appear, it will probably be only at the end of this year, so those planning to replace the GPU with a newer model can rest assured that focus their attention on the basic RTX 3000 models.
