Hours before NVIDIA's CES 2021 livestream, VideoCardz managed to score another exclusive. The video card-oriented website published the first photos of GeForce RTX 3060 based video cards with 12GB GDDR6 memory. You can find some photos of Gigabyte cards over here, these are GA106-based models with the same memory capacity as AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT.

The launch of the RTX 3060 results in a weird discrepancy in NVIDIA's product portfolio because a mid-range model now has more memory capacity than higher-end models. The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has 8GB GDDR6 and even the high-end GeForce RTX 3080 features just 10GB GDDR6X. Only the GeForce RTX 3090 has more memory than the RTX 3060, the former comes with 24GB GDDR6X.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 features GA106-300 GPU with rumored 3584 CUDA cores. Models based on this SKU will look almost identical to the RTX 3060 Ti, despite featuring a different GPU. The two models we are sharing below look exactly the same as their RTX 3060 Ti variants. The RTX 3060 Gaming series are a triple-fan design with a single 8-pin power connector. On the other hand, the RTX 3060 Eagle series are a dual-fan design. Both models are equipped with dual HDMI 2.1 and display DisplayPort 1.4 monitor outputs.
