Highly anticipated: Leaks related to the RTX 3060 Ti, a card Nvidia has yet to officially confirm, are arriving with such regularity that the card’s launch appears on the horizon. The latest of these allegedly comes from the company itself and shows the next Ampere product is up to 80 percent faster than the RTX 2060 Super. It even outperforms the RTX 2080 Super.

The purported presentation slides come from Videocardz. They look like the real deal, though the site hasn’t always been on the money with these sorts of leaks. Assuming they are genuine, the tests are carried out in a variety of games at 2560 × 1440 resolution using an Intel Core i9-10900K CPU. There’s no mention of the amount of RAM used or the type of motherboard.

In the standard non-ray tracing (rasterized) benchmarks, the RTX 3060 Ti is about 10 percent faster than the RTX 2080 Super in Horizon Zero Dawn, Doom Eternal, and Red Dead Redemption 2, while performance is about the same in Gears 5, which is called Gears of War 5 in the slide.

The 3060 Ti pulls away from the Turing card when Ray Tracing is enabled in most games, and that's despite it having fewer RT cores (38) than the RTX 2080 Super (48). The gap increases to around 50 percent in rendering apps such as Blender.

As one might imagine, the RTX 3060 Ti annihilates the RTX 2060 Super. Its previous-gen equivalent is beaten by up to 54 percent in both rasterized and ray-traced games, and by up to 80 percent in the pro apps.

While we wait for Nvidia to confirm the RTX 3060 Ti, many in the industry believe it will arrive on December 2 and feature a cut-down version of the GA104 GPU found in the $499 RTX 3070. It will have fewer CUDA cores (4,864) but use the same 8GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 Gbps, 256-bit memory bus, and 448 GB/s maximum bandwidth. Expect the price to be around $399.

"Sure. Skip this GPU, just like you skipped on buying Amazon stock, and Google..." - sound familiar? This is exactly how eTo, ahem, nVidia announcements should sound like.
Now, let us see:
- issues with stocks, since they went with Samsung silicon
- issues with the cards and "fixes" consisting of downclocks
NVidia's solution: MORE paper launches?! WTF.

Comparing the last generation GA-104 die to a current GA-104 dia and a GA-106 die from the last generation. What did you expect?

Well, considering how the 3070/3080/3090 launch went (and I did like the cards, just not their availability), I only believe 3060/ti coming when I see them on the shelves. In spades. Till then...

I personally wouldn't go any lower than the 3070 for a Desktop.

I just hope that the next generatio0n of 3000 series in Laptops will be more powerful than the 2060 and 2070.

Personally, I was NEVER sold on ray tracing because I never really noticed much difference than current technology offered and I never truly believed in the effectiveness of ray tracing on a laptop. The 2060, currently is more than enough to run just about any game you want because a large percentage of top played games are still running fine on a 1060- 1080.

I will wait till the 3000 series completely replaces the 2000 mobile series and then upgrade.

'Expect the price to be around $399.'


Actually, no. MSRP means nothing anymore. It'll be the better part of a year before these will be available anywhere near that price.

The 3070 is the best value card that can compete with even the hugely overpriced 2080Ti.

I think Nvidia should just decrease the price of 3070 and let everyone and more people buy it and help people have a quality home PC gaming at affordable cost for everyone and call it a day, rather than keep churning out 3060, 3060Ti, 3050,3050Ti, 3040, 3040Ti.......

As for me, I'm waiting to see how the 6800 and 6800XT perform.

I like AMD's recent efforts in fighting back with good value, but if the price/performance is poor, I wouldn't mind getting a 3070 or even a 3080.

But I need to wait until the scalpers die a painful death. No hurry to give my money to these looters. No one should pay more than the actual value of a card, no matter how tempting it is. So, maybe need to wait another year. I can wait. By then, even if a newer card comes out, it will be the same story, but I can purchase the current card at that time at the right value, maybe for even less.

$500 cards arnt for everyone, what I'd like to see is a $200 card that's slightly faster than the 2070 or 2060s that supports rt. The sweet spot has always been at $200-$250, the truly great cards for this bracket

Voodoo 3 2000
GeForce 2 MX
Ti 4200
6600gt
7600gt
8800gt
Gts 250
Gtx 460
Gtx 560 TI
Gtx 660 ti
Gtx1060

Radeon 9600 pro
Hd4850
Hd5770
Hd6850
Hd7850
R9 280x
Rx 480
Rx 580

That's where the momorable cards hang out. Yes we all want a high end but if someone is buying a ryzen 3 or core i3 for gaming or previous gen ryzen 5 2000 or i5 you can also bet they have a budget, and the market size is much greater at 200-250

I really like your list including how you skipped the Nvidia 'leaf blower' 5xxx generation completely.
