Though Nvidia has launched its GeForce RTX 40-series (Ada) graphics playing cards, the chipmaker is not able to bid farewell to Ampere but. Likewise, Nvidia hasn’t formally introduced the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X, however Asus has simply confirmed the brand new Ampere SKU’s existence.
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X is a part of the rumored refresh, together with fashions just like the GeForce RTX 3060 GDDR6X, GeForce RTX 3060 8GB, and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GA102. The refresh means that Nvidia might have gathered too many Ampere dies and is discovering methods to do away with them. Due to this fact, the following contenders for the greatest graphics playing cards might hail from Nvidia’s Ampere household somewhat than Ada.
As first noticed by VideoCardz (opens in new tab), Asus has listed the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8G GDDR6X and TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G GDDR6X graphics playing cards, with the latter mannequin arriving with a manufacturing unit overclock. The usual model boosts to 1,665 MHz, the identical increase clock because the common GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Version. Nonetheless, Asus’ graphics card has an OC mode that additional ups the clock velocity to 1,695 MHz. In the meantime, the OC version has a 1,775 MHz default increase clock and a 1,785 OC increase clock.
Asus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X Specs
|CUDA Cores||Default Mode Enhance Clock||OC Mode Enhance Clock||Reminiscence||Reminiscence Pace||Reminiscence Interface||Bandwidth||Half Quantity|
|TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G GDDR6X||4,864||1,755 MHz||1,785 MHz||8GB GDDR6X||19 Gbps||256-bit||608 GBps||TUF-RTX3060TI-O8GD6X-GAMING|
|TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8G GDDR6X||4,864||1,665 MHz||1,695 MHz||8GB GDDR6X||19 Gbps||256-bit||608 GBps||TUF-RTX3060TI-8GD6X-GAMING|
|GeForce RTX 3060 Ti||4,864||1,665 MHz||N/A||8GB GDDR6||14 Gbps||256-bit||448 GBps||N/A|
The improved increase clock speeds will assist the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X provide larger efficiency over the vanilla model. Nonetheless, the present’s actual star is the change from 14 Gbps GDDR6X reminiscence to 19 Gbps GDDR6X reminiscence. Despite the fact that the quantity of reminiscence and 256-bit interface stays the identical, the GDDR6X reminiscence will increase the Ampere graphics card’s reminiscence throughput.
Whereas the usual GeForce RTX 3060 Ti gives a reminiscence bandwidth of as much as 448 GBps, the GDDR6X variant delivers as much as 608 GBps. The brand new SKU represents a 36% enchancment, which must be seen in gaming benchmarks.

Sadly, Asus did not checklist the TDP for the customized GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X graphics playing cards. It is nonetheless a thriller how a lot affect the GDDR6X reminiscence has on the graphics card’s TDP. It could appear that the brand new variant does draw extra energy, in keeping with Asus’ design.
The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G solely makes use of a single 8-pin PCIe energy connector. In distinction, Asus has outfitted the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G GDDR6X with two 8-pin PCIe energy connectors. Each graphics playing cards function the identical increase clock, so the clock speeds aren’t the rationale for the upper energy requirement. As an alternative, it comes right down to the kind of reminiscence.
It is a radical change contemplating that every 8-pin PCIe energy connector is appropriate for 150W. Nonetheless, the additional energy connector does not essentially imply that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X pulls the overall 150W. Asus nonetheless suggests a 750W energy provide for the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G GDDR6X regardless of its twin 8-pin PCIe energy connectors. It is the identical minimal advice because the TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti OC Version 8G. We will conclude from the facility connector association that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X doubtless has the next TDP however isn’t important sufficient to warrant an even bigger energy provide.
It is unknown when Nvidia will unveil the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X; it should not be lengthy since Asus has already listed the model’s customized fashions.
