Galax has quietly launched its first GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus graphics playing cards geared up with 8GB of GDDR6X reminiscence. The boards function greater reminiscence bandwidth than common GeForce RTX 3060 Ti boards and, subsequently, provide considerably greater efficiency than common fashions in circumstances the place reminiscence bandwidth issues. In some conditions, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus may rival Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070.
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus is predicated on a GA103 or GA104 graphics processor with 4864 CUDA cores (identical to the common GeForce RTX 3060 Ti) which can be mated with 8GB of 19 GT/s GDDR6X reminiscence utilizing a 256-bit interface (vs. 14 GT/s GDDR6 on common fashions). In consequence, the brand new graphics board can provide a peak reminiscence bandwidth of 608 GB/s, which is 36% greater than customary GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 playing cards.
|CUDA Cores||FP32 TFLOPS (Increase)||Reminiscence||Reminiscence Bandwidth||MSRP|
|GeForce RTX 3060 Ti||4864||16,197||14GT/s 8GB GDDR6 256-bit||448 GB/s||$399|
|GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus||4864||16,197||19GT/s 8GB GDDR6X 256-bit||608 GB/s||?|
|GeForce RTX 3070||5888||20,314||14GT/s 8GB GDDR6 256-bit||448 GB/s||$499|
Efficiency numbers demonstrated by Galax and republished by VideoCardz present that the mannequin RTX 3060 Ti Plus can certainly be sooner than the mannequin RTX 3070 in sure circumstances, although these numbers want unbiased verification.
In the meantime, since GDDR6X makes use of PAM4 encoding, this reminiscence will increase energy consumption for each the GPU and reminiscence. Moreover, GDDR6X, which is completely out there from Micron, tends to be costlier than the common GDDR6 that’s offered by three main reminiscence makers.
Talking of Galax’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus graphics playing cards, the corporate has two fashions: the Galax GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus SG with a 1695 MHz enhance clock and a triple-slot triple-fan cooler, in addition to the Galax GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus with 1680 MHz enhance clock and a dual-slot dual-fan cooler. As well as, each playing cards have one eight-pin auxiliary PCIe energy connector and 4 show outputs (three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 connector).
Given the considerably odd configuration of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus, it stays to be seen how a lot the graphics playing cards will finally price. In principle, the mannequin RTX 3060 Ti Plus ought to sit between the common RTX 3060 Ti ($399) and RTX 3070 ($499), however because the product will rival the latter, a minimum of in some circumstances, its pricing will in all probability fall nearer to Nvidia’s reference GeForce RTX 3070.
