NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Graphics Cards With Ampere GA104 GPUs…

NVIDIA To Maximize GeForce RTX 3060 Graphics Card Source In July, China Crypto Ban Also Slashes Price ranges on RTX 30 Series

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards have been spotted making use of the GA104 GPU by Matthew Smith (TechPowerUp’s GPU Database Editor). The entries are pretty latest which means that AIBs are using defective Ampere dies to energy the mainstream gaming graphics card.

NVIDIA’s GA104 GPU Run GeForce RTX 3060 Graphics Playing cards Noticed

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card is based on the Ampere GA106 GPU which is a whole various SKU in contrast to the GA104 which powers the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti & GeForce RTX 3070.

Primarily based on the new entry, it looks like NVIDIA could have a surplus inventory of faulty GPU dies that did not make it into the bigger-finish graphics card but are still fantastic plenty of for the RTX 3060 cards. This usually means that even though the graphics card will keep its main specs such as 3584 CUDA cores and 12 GB of GDDR6 memory working throughout a 192-bit bus interface, the chip alone will be a much bigger-stop SKU than the RTX 3060’s primary GA106 GPU core.

This will not likely be the to start with time that NVIDIA has applied faulty 104 dies to swap 106 SKUs. The RTX 2060 that was initially dependent on the TU106 GPU gained various configurations including just one of which highlighted a TU104 GPU. Other cards these kinds of as the Turing TU117 powered GeForce GTX 1650 also obtained up to date configurations in TU116 and TU106 flavors. The latter offered greater NVENC support and slightly more quickly content material creation abilities even though we are not likely to see these in the TU104 centered RTX 3060 cards given that Turing experienced a lot of architectural variances in the better-close & the mainstream GPU SKUs.

What we could see is the GA104 driven GeForce RTX 3060 to enable steady increase clocks along with much better regulate over ability than its constrained GA106 variant. So all round, most of you would under no circumstances know what is lying less than the hood of your NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics card, no matter if it be a GA104 or a GA106 GPU-based variant. It was recently noted that the supply of GA106 GPUs could possibly come to be constrained so that could possibly also make clear why these defective GA104 dies are becoming repurposed for the RTX 3060.
