Nvidia is rumored to be working on a new version of the popular RTX 3060 graphics card With The new GPU and memory chip work.
XX60 class graphics cards are always considered the most popular Nvidia graphics cards among gamers. The obvious reason for that is their affordable price versus the acceptable gaming performance they provide. However, as gaming graphics cards become more expensive, users are forced to buy cheaper models of these products. A good example of these inexpensive models is the RTX 3060 8GB graphics card It was released last year. Gamers can currently purchase this model for about $50 cheaper than the original 12GB version.
Since Nvidia has released several models for the RTX 3060 graphics card since its introduction, the question that arises here is which version is the original model of this card. Currently, a version based on the GA106-300 chip is available, which includes the LHR model as well as the 8GB version mentioned above.
Now it is interesting that Nvidia is rumored to have another version of this card under construction. Of course, it is said that GA104 graphics processor was used in it this time. Such combinations have already been seen among Nvidia products, but these models are usually not available for all regions. Because they are often limited to the Chinese market.
So if this rumor is true, all the models announced so far for the RTX3060 will include the following:
- GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 – GA106-300
- GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6 LHR – GA106-302
- GeForce RTX 3060 8GB GDDR6 – GA106-302
- GeForce RTX 3060 12GB GDDR6X – GA104
But the more important news is the use of GDDR6X memory in the structure of this card. This resulted in a significant 36 percent performance improvement for the RTX 3060 Ti, which is now available in both GDDR6 and GDDR6X versions.
This news was reported by T4C Fantasy on Twitter, which is the provider of the GPU database of the TechPowerUP website. Given that this source published GPU-Z results as confirmation of its claim, we can guess how this information was obtained. Of course, this news remains a rumor for now and we have to wait until the official news is released.
