The RTX 3060 Ti's release date is rumored for October. It's expected to be a cut-down RTX 3070 with 4,864 CUDA cores compared to the RTX 3070's the 5,888. The RTX 3060 Ti's memory should stay identical at 8GB of GDDR6X on a 256-bit bus, meaning the only change between the two GPUs would be an 18% difference in CUDA core count. Nvidia should be careful with this one. If it prices the RTX 3060 Ti right, it could sway a lot of buyers over to the card over the RTX 3070.
It should be standard GDDR6 memory, correct? Thought the X version was for higher end cards.

8 or 10 GB of VRAM doesn't seem future-proofed enough for me. Sure, it's fine if you upgrade every 1-2 years, but I expect 4+ years out of a GPU. The 16 and 20 GB models would be the ones I want to pay attention to. Always get your VRAM on par with or better than the consoles. Also need to see those performance specifics from AMD.

Looks like it's also necessary to spend some time testing or scripting a bot to purchase 1, yes just 1, GPU for personal use given that humans can't compete as shown by this week's mayhem.

The 3070 is bandwidth limited as it is. Adding more VRAM would be nothing but a marketing gimmick. A 16GB 3070 Super using the GDDR6X-capable GA102 die would have the right amount of performance but then it'd cost more to make than the 3080.

I am curious how much of a difference the expanded VRAM will make to a properly optimized RTX IO title. It will probably be a while before we see one, however, I would think that it could make a significant difference to performance after the initial environment has been loaded.

GDDR6 is $12 per GB ... so the 16 GB version of RTX 3070 should be around $600 still $100 lower than RTX 3080 .

RTX 3080 with 20GB VRAM should be around $120-150 more , that is , it might land at ~$850

If they kept the same performance and clocks.

Do you know what the cost per GB is for GDDR6X?
