An ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X is seen in 3DMark

There are increasing signs that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti still has a long way to go. NVIDIA has already made it clear to us, with the presentation of the RTX 40, that its plan is for both generations to coexist in the market for a while. And this is something that we could already imagine, because there still seems to be a lot of stock of the RTX 30 series pending to leave the warehouses of both manufacturers and distributors, a stock that may drop somewhat in price, but at least for now it does not seem that is going to be settled at the demolition price, as it would entail significant economic losses.

Even less, of course, if we take into account the price of the debut of the RTX 40 series, with the RTX 4090 above 2,000 euros, and the RTX 4080 16GB (remember that the launch of the RTX 4080 12GB was cancelled) with a starting price of 1,469 euros, which we will soon see grow in the first models that reach the market. Although in the future the RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 will arrive (of which we recently saw a box), with more affordable prices, At the moment the most balanced option, for many users, will be to stay in the previous generation (If you’re hesitant to buy an RTX 30/RTX 40 now or wait, here are several reasons each to help you decide.)

Now, that RTX 30 is the previous generation, it does not mean that improvements in their designs cannot be produced. Quite the contrary, and more so now that we know that they will still be on the market, both NVIDIA and the manufacturers can make changes both to the reference design in the case of the former, and to what the latter do from it. And in this regard we already told you, a couple of weeks ago, that a distributor published, by mistake for a short period of time, a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition, with the particularity that it used GDDR6X memory, instead of the GDDR6 common in all models marketed to date. Was NVIDIA updating the reference design for this card?

Well, it seems more and more likely that this is the case, as we can read on Videocardz, an ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti TUF Gaming OC with 8 gigabytes of GDDR6X RAM has appeared in the 3DMarc results. The rest of the components, including the GPU, as can be seen in these results, are similar. Now, we are talking about an improvement with a very direct effect on its performance.

And it is that, according to these results, this GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory it will be 7% to 10% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6 memoryMemory speeds have been increased to 19 Gbps, allowing for an increase in overall bandwidth of up to 608 GB/s, while the current model offers up to 448 GB/s of bandwidth. However, it must be remembered that the performance differences may differ between synthetic tests, such as 3DMark, and games, so we will be able to make a more accurate assessment when results begin to arrive with them.

As for its launch, it seems that it was initially planned for the end of October, but that the cancellation of the launch of the RTX 4080 12GB, and the consequent reorganization of NVIDIA’s calendar, could delay it until early November. In any case, it seems that it will be a “silent” launch, which at most will be announced with a press release, not with a presentation or with more complex actions.
