Nvidia is getting ready for their upcoming RTX 3070 GPU launch this week, and before they’ve even officially announced it, the RTX 3060 Ti model is already available for preorder by Chinese retailers on Taobao. Whilst pricing isn’t listed in USD, the 3060 Ti model is expected to be around $400 and launch sometime in November.
You can have a look at the Chinese advertisements below, but note that the images on show are not the actual RTX 3060 cards and are instead other RTX 30 series cards, though it's believed the RTX 3060 Ti will be a similar style and design to the RTX 3070.
Reported specs for the RTX 3060 Ti feature 4864 CUDA cores along with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Performance is also expected to be similar to the RTX 2080, and likely even slightly faster considering the RTX 3070 is slightly faster than the RTX 2080 Ti.
Whilst official Chinese pricing ranges anywhere from 2049 to 2999 Yuans (which is roughly $300-$450) considering Nvidia’s pricing model of matching the previous generation’s prcice points, we can expect the RTX 3060 Ti to cost $399 and the RTX 3060 to cost $349.
