RTX 4090 too expensive? Nvidia resurrects another old favorite

UK retailer scan.co.uk (opens in new tab) listed (and quickly withdrew) a new low-end Nvidia GPU, but unfortunately it’s not the RTX 4060 we were waiting to see. No, it’s a new version of the already excellent RTX 3060 Ti – now equipped with updated GDDR6X VRAM.

For reference, the original RTX 3060 Ti had 8GB of conventional GDDR6; the ‘X’ variant of memory is essentially faster and more efficient with slightly more overall power consumption. It’s also reportedly cheaper on the manufacturing backend, which might explain why Nvidia has put this card into production now.
