For the upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, Nvidia could apply a similar approach to the GTX 1060 GPU based on the "Pascal" architecture, according to Igor's Lab. The RTX 3060 series is predicted to be released in mid-January, perhaps in the run-up to or after the virtual CES trade show.
Nvidia could develop two variants of the RTX 3060 graphics card - one with 6GB of memory and the other with 12GB. Both models are expected to have a 192-bit memory interface.
This could make the RTX 3060 a kind of successor to the GTX 1060 3GB and GTX 1060 6GB models, but it remains to be seen whether segmentation will be limited to memory size only or will be extended to chip core configuration as well.
The GeForce RTX 3060 series is expected to match the AMD Radeon RX 6700 series on the market, and rumors mention that the RX 6700 XT will have 12GB of memory with a 192-bit memory interface.
