Recent rumors have predicted that NVIDIA Be the one to try to take advantage of this interesting opportunity before its opponent, already this month, with the help of theGeForce RTX 3060 Ti which will be based on a version of the GA104 core with fewer active processing units compared to the one that operates theGeForce RTX 3070.

Video card leak experts at videocardz.com provide us with more and more accurate images of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Eagle fromGIGABYTE - together with approval of the technical specifications that will probably provide a cut of about 20 percent in capabilities compared toRTX 3070 in exchange for a 20 percent cut in the price tag
