NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory should completely replace the GDDR6 variant

NVIDIA now wants to sell RTX 3060 Ti cards only with GDDR6X memory

According to Chinese media, NVIDIA intends to completely replace the RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6 graphics cards with the upgraded GDDR6X variant.

Last month NVIDIA officially introduces GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6X and GeForce RTX 3060 with 8 GB of memory. The company has confirmed that these are “additional options” from board partners that should provide players with more choices.

Importantly, both SKUs have also been officially launched globally by all major board partners, indicating that this launch is not restricted to any region. , which is usually the case for “slightly” modified cards.

According My DriversNVIDIA and Add-in-Card (AIC) partners are to gradually replace and eventually retire the GDDR6 version of the RTX 3060 Ti SKU. The plan calls for replacing the existing stock RTX 3060 Ti GDDR6 with GDDR6X variants. It is important to note that this GDDR6X upgrade is offered at the same price as the original GDDR6 model, which is 2999 RMB (~$419).

So far, there’s been no indication that NVIDIA would replace the 12GB RTX 3060 with an 8GB model, and to be honest, that wouldn’t really make sense. However, the RTX 3060 Ti with faster memory and therefore 35% higher bandwidth is not something consumers should ignore.

The release of the new GeForce RTX 3060 series is a clear sign that NVIDIA has no plans to launch the RTX 4060 series anytime soon. The upgraded models will cement the company’s presence in the midrange GPU market, now saturated with new Radeon RX 6750 XT and Intel Arc A7 GPUs.
