Nvidia RTX 3060, Asus lists ROG Strix model on its support page

The GeForce RTX 3060 finally turns out to be approaching. After the release of the “Ti” variant, Nvidia is about to release this mid-range model based on Amps. Asus seems to be one of the partners preparing to launch their own custom models with this GPU.

The filtering of this new model seems to come from Asus’ own website. The listing, which comes from the company’s support site, shows a ROG Strix RTX 3060 model that has 12GB of VRAM memory. This amount is interestingly larger than what we find in the high-end RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 models. This means that the RTX 3060 could be announced in the coming weeks.

The RTX 3060 will replace Turing’s mid-range model with the RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super. Memory capacity will be 12GB of GDDR6 with a 192-bit memory bus. In any case, Nvidia would have thought of launching a model with 6 GB of VRAM, although we are not sure if a model with 6 GB of memory is the best choice for the money we will invest. It’s possible that this is the only change that no other cuts will be made, a strategy they used with the 3GB and 6GB GTX 1060.

This graphics card could compete with the upcoming AMD RX 6700 XT, which also has a memory capacity of 12GB of VRAM.

The importance of a good amount of VRAM memory becomes even greater as games become more complex, being played at higher resolutions and incorporating effects such as ray tracing.
