NVIDIA's plans are reportedly changing rapidly. The current roadmap allegedly has four new models for January, including the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, GeForce RTX 3060, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, and GeForce RTX 3050.
When it comes to RTX 3060 specifically, NVIDIA has recently updated the PG190 SKU 30 board (RTX 3060 6GB 14Gbps) to PG190 SKU 40 (6GB 16Gbps), only to update it last week to PG190 SKU 50, now featuring 12GB 16Gbps configuration. All these SKUs have different memory configurations. The changes to the CUDA core count (3840) are not listed and thus not expected.There's also a rumor that AMD plans to launch its Navi 22-based GPUs sooner than previously expected. The RX 6700 series may now hit the market in January too.
