The MSI assembler has made new registrations in the ECC that directly name the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and the RTX 3080 with 20 GB of graphics memory.
Among the new models and registered names, the most interesting is that RTX 3080 with 20 GB of graphic memory, since it has been one of the most rumored in recent weeks, although it became almost “totally discarded” when they began to talk about an RTX 3080 Ti with 20 GB of graphics memory, which would aim to clearly outperform the Radeon RX 6800 XT.
NVIDIA could easily launch an RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB of graphics memory, and also an RTX 3080 with that amount of memory. It would not be the first time that the company has expanded its catalog of graphics cards to the point of having models that almost step on each other.
As for the RTX 3060 Ti, in the new records, we can see references to models with 6 GB and 12 GB of graphic memory. Everything seems to indicate that it could be a mistake and that they really are references to the RTX 3060, a mid-range graphics card that will arrive in early 2021, and that will have fewer shaders than the RTX 3060 Ti. It will also have fewer graphics memory, 6 GB in its base configuration, but it could be accompanied by a version with 12 GB of graphics memory to compete with a possible RX 6700 from AMD.
The RTX 3060 should offer a performance halfway between the RTX 2070 Super and the RTX 2080, and its price will be between 300 and 350 euros.
