While the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB is once again taking shape, the rumor mill is also speculating about a new version of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (test) based on the GA103 graphics processor, which would be used for the first time in the desktop. Nvidia’s Studio driver provides relevant information.
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB in the ECC database
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 16 GB GDDR6X has been haunting the rumor mill for almost as long as the GeForce RTX has been around. Now, once more, the Twitter user @momomo_us Found clues to a presentation of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (test) with double the memory and the same number of shaders. Asus Gigabyte The database of the Eurasian Economic Commission EEC has several entries on new graphics cards submitted by Asus and Gigabyte. However, as with all of these entries, this does not mean that this multitude of models will also appear, it would not be the first time that such entries vanish into thin air. However, rumors of a 16 GB version of the RTX 3070 persist. Most recently, it was speculated that Nvidia could publish them as editorial staff on Intel Arc graphics cards, which are said to come with 16 GB. Since the beginning of 2022, however, their near future has not been under a good star. It is obvious that Nvidia is fundamentally struggling with a 16 GB version of the RTX 3070: it would outperform the GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB, the new RTX 3080 12 GB and the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti (12 GB) in terms of memory.
A new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GA103
As the VideoCardz website also reports, Nvidia should at least be toying with the idea of launching a new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti based on the GA103-200 graphics chip. This is suggested by hints from the Studio 511.x driver, which lists corresponding hardware IDs. The driver also provides the first official confirmation that the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU relies on GA103(M).
As the Twitter user indicated a little later in a reply to VideoCardz’s post, it is the GA103-200-A1, which has 4,864 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 at 14 Gbps over the same specifications as the GA104- 200-A1 should have. The “new” GeForce RTX 3060 Ti could thus silently replace the “old” model.

Changing from the GA104 with a maximum of 6,144 shaders to the GA103 with at least 7,242 shaders for a graphics card with 4,864 shaders would be a very unusual step. As a rule, an attempt is made to keep the “chip waste” as small as possible. In this case, however, it would even grow significantly. With the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB, which was also introduced without much ado and without any test samples, the upcoming top model GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which is expected to be released on January 27th, as well as the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB and the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti the portfolio of gaming amps to become even more confusing.
