RTX 3060 Could Have 12GB of GDDR6!?

It looks like 2020 is not and will continue to be not very kind to pc enthusiasts. While the tech is great, availability seems to be the biggest issue. The RTX 3000 series was such a bad launch that many resorted to calling it a paper launch, and even now, availability is still… well not present. Everything is out of stock.

And the same seems to be happening to AMD. The Ryzen 5000 series of CPUs released about 4 days ago and it sold out in the first few minutes. There seem to be just as many scalpers for these products. Not only that but companies and AMD reps are now saying that the same. an Asus representative has warned that the first batch of cards of reference cards would sell out quickly. According to the translation, within minutes.

Thankfully though, AIB models would start rolling out about a week after the launch date which is November 18th. Sapphire and XFX are expected to be the first to roll them out. The only thing is if you were waiting for a heavily factory overclocked partner card, you might have to wait for next year, at least that’s what I’ve heard.

Just noticed this..I wonder if the 3060 will have much more cuda cores than the 1080ti if so, great news for gpu rendering!

If they put that much GDDR on it, I wonder if it will be a trickle up effect for second Generation 3070's and 3080's.
Competition is good, thankfully AMD is providing it in ample amounts now.

lol well I guess we know the odds that Sagath thinks we will get that 12GB or that it will trickle up XD
