Nvidia plans to release another graphics card for the mainstream market at the end of February, that is, the RTX 3060 released at CES 2021. It seems that the release at the end of the month is largely to stagger the Spring Festival in my country and drive the wave after the Spring Festival. sale season. Now that the RTX 3060 has not been officially released, photos of the new generation of GPU cores have appeared online, which are different from all cores currently on sale.
At present, the GPU cores released by NVIDIA include GA102, GA104 and GA100, which are used for Tesla A100, RTX 3090 to RTX 3060 Ti respectively. The newly exposed GPU core is smaller in area than the previous version, obviously it is RTX 3060 The prepared code is expected to be named GA106. NVIDIA has officially announced the RTX 3060, but has not announced the specific parameters of the new graphics card. It is reported that the RTX 360 has 3840 stream processors and is equipped with 16GB GDDR6 video memory. The frequency has reached 16Gbps is almost the top configuration, and its core size is calculated to be about 276 square millimeters, which is smaller than the previously released chips.
In addition to the RTX 3060, it is reported that Nvidia also plans to use this chip on the RTX 3050 Ti. Of course, the specifications have been castrated, but the biggest problem now is supply. Although the chip has been exposed, and major AICs are also intensively producing a new generation of RTX 3060 graphics cards, but in the face of massive market demand, the current production capacity is obviously far from enough. It is expected that everyone will still have to grab to buy the new generation. Graphics card.
