Zotac launches a new version of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti: Equipped with GA103-200

The long-rumored GA103 core also appeared in the PCI device ID database last month. It contains two products, one is the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti for the desktop platform, and the other is the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti for the laptop platform. It is said that GeForce RTX 3060 Ti may use the GA103-200.

Recently Zotac released three new graphics cards, namely RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 PGF GOC-X, RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 GOC-X, and RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 X-GAMING GOC-X. Compared to the original GA104-200 model, these graphics cards have an added “-X” at the end for easy differentiation. Since the appearance of the three graphics cards is the same as the original, and all use a three-fan cooling system, the model number on the label is the only way to distinguish the old and new versions.

Although the complete specification of the GA103 is 7680 CUDA cores, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti uses either GA104 or GA103. The specifications are all the same, that is, 2816 CUDA cores are disabled, leaving only 4864 CUDA cores, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory is equipped with a bit width of 256 bits.  The base clock of RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 PGF GOC-X, RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 GOC-X, and RTX 3060Ti-8GD6 X-GAMING GOC-X are all 1410 MHz, and the boost clock is 1725MHz, 1695MHz, and 1680MHz respectively.

Nvidia has yet to confirm the specifications of the GA103-200, which is estimated to be 496mm² in size and the transistor count is unclear. At present, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card equipped with GA103-200 is only available in the Chinese market. It hasn’t appeared in other regions yet, which means that Nvidia is likely to only target certain markets in limited quantities.
