More video card rumors to kickstart your day! Citing a report from German tech writer Igor Wallosek, VideoCardz writes NVIDIA has allegedly changed its roadmap again.

Based on the new information, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is delayed to February 2021. This new variant features a GA102-250 GPU with the same number of CUDA cores as the GeForce RTX 3090. It's rumored to have 20GB GDDR6X memory clocked at 19Gbps. Pricing is expected to be around $999.

Then there's more word about the GeForce RTX 3060, this model is expected in January 2021. It appears NVIDIA is planning two variants; a model with 6GB GDDR6 and a higher-capacity version with 12GB GDDR6. Both are based on the GA106 GPU but there will be bigger differences than just the memory.
What I found interesting is that Igor also confirmed what we wrote earlier, that RTX 3050 Ti will be renamed into RTX 3060 6GB. The original specs for 3050 Ti featured GA106 GPU and it appears that NVIDIA might have thought it would better fit 3060 6GB instead. NVIDIA has so far not confirmed whether it has plans for 3050 Ti, however, there is RTX 3050 non-Ti on a horizon that would feature a cut-down GA107 GPU. The Ti variant could use the full chip if it is ever released.
The 6GB model has 3584 CUDA cores and 14Gbps memory, while the 12GB variant has 3840 CUDA cores and 16Gbps memory.

A final rumor claims the RTX 3060 6GB is delayed, meaning only the RTX 3060 12GB would launch in January.
