NVIDIA to Launch RTX 3060 Ti w/ 4,864 Shaders and 8GB of GDDR6 Memory to Tackle RDNA 2

As per the well-reputed Twitter source on Ampere, kopite7kimi, NVIDIA will soon be launching its next 30 series GPU, namely the RTX 3060 Ti (or Super) with up to 4,864 shaders (FP32) and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. That’s right, we’re likely to see a Ti/Super version ahead of the vanilla 3060 with performance much closer to the RTX 3070.

Like the RTX 3070, the 3060 Ti will also be based on the GA104 GPU. While the former includes 46 working SMs or 5,888 cores, the latter will be a minor downgrade with 38 SMs or 4,864 cores.

As for a potential RTX 3070 Ti/Super, it should feature 16GB of GDDR6 memory and up to 46 SMs. The bus width and bandwidth should remain unchanged. Here’s a summary of the Ampere family:

  • GA102 – 84 SM @ 384 Bit GDDR6X
    • GeForce RTX 3090 – 82 SM @ 384 bit, 24 GB GDDR6X, 350W TDP, $ 1499
    • GeForce RTX 3080 – 68 SM @ 320 bit, 10 GB GDDR6X, 320W TDP, $ 699
  • GA104 – 48 SM @ 256 Bit GDDR6
    • GeForce RTX 3070 Ti – 48 SM @ 256-bit, 16 GB GDDR6, 250W TDP, $549
    • GeForce RTX 3070 – 46 SM @ 256 bit, 8 GB GDDR6, 220W TDP, $ 499
    • GeForce RTX 3060 Ti – 38 SM @ 256 bit, 8 GB GDDR6, approx. 180W TDP, approx. $ 399

Unless Big Navi actually manages to beat the GeForce RTX 3080, we’re unlikely to see an RTX 3080 Ti anytime soon. If and when we do get it, it’ll be based on a new GPU die with at least 16GB of VRAM and a notably higher core count than the 3080. We’ll almost certainly get another Titan alongside it.
