NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3050 Ti to use GA106 GPU?

More NVIDIA leaks from Twitter poster Kopite7kimi . The guy has previously posted very accurate Ampere rumors and now he claims NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3050 Ti will both use variations of the GA106 GPU.

The RTX 3060 allegedly has 3840 CUDA cores while the RTX 3050 Ti is rumored to have 3584 CUDA cores. Interesting is that the latter has RTX support, a first for the x050 series. VideoCardz claims there will also be an RTX 3050 (non-Ti).

The GA106 is rumored to feature a 192-bit memory bus, this suggests 6GB GDDR6 memory (or potentially as much as 12GB but that makes less sense).

Based on current reports it looks like the RTX 3060 will launch in January 2021. The RTX 3050 Ti is expected a bit later, between January and February.
