Asus and Gigabyte’s GPU plans leaked in regulatory listing

Gigabyte has seemingly confirmed plans to launch custom models of Nvidia’s flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ti 24GB graphics card.

According to an Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listing, the company is also preparing a launch for the previously rumored RTX 3070 Ti 16GB GPU.

The listing, spotted by Wccftech, details several upcoming variants for Gigabyte’s various ranges, including AORUS Xtreme, Gaming OC, Gaming OC Stealth, and Eagle OC. The full listing is as follows:

  • GV-N309TAORUSX W-24GD (Gigabyte 3090 Ti AORUS Xtreme Waterforce)
  • GV-N309TGAMING OC-24GD (Gigabyte 3090 Ti Gaming OC)
  • GV-N307TGAMING OC-16GD STEALTH (Gigabyte 3070 Ti Gaming OC Stealth)
  • GV-N3050GAMING OC-8GD (Gigabyte 3050 Gaming OC)
  • GV-N3050EAGLE OC-8GD (Gigabyte 3050 Eagle OC)
  • GV-N3050GAMING-8 NG30 N3050D6-8GD (Gigabyte 3050 Gaming)
  • GV-N3050D6-8GL (Gigabyte 3050 Mini)

Nvidia already announced its powerful RTX 3090 Ti 24GB at CES 2022, but we have additional confirmation that the upgraded GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB is also on the way. Gigabyte is not the only manufacturer that verified the existence of the latter video card; Asus also mentioned the graphics card in another EEC listing.

As for the technical specifications of the RTX 3070 Ti 16GB model, the GPU reportedly offers 6144 CUDA cores, 192 tensor cores, 48 ray tracing acceleration cores, and 16GB of GDDR6X memory that can be clocked at 19 Gbps. The dual-slot card also features a 256-bit memory interface and a frequency of 1575MHz that can be boosted up to 1770MHz.

EEC leaks are usually an indication that a product is set to be released in the near future. However, as pointed out by VideoCardz, there are occasions when a certain card is delayed even after being listed in an EEC filing. Previously, the RTX 3070 Ti 16GB was set to be released on January 11, but we’ll have to wait and see if the card launches this month alongside the 3090 Ti.

We’ve also seen Nvidia launch another updated graphics card out of the blue, so the company may be planning to follow a similar release strategy for the RTX 3070 Ti 16GB model.

Elsewhere, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be one of the most powerful graphics cards ever released for the consumer market. Based on Nvidia’s Ampere architecture, the card will deliver 24GB of 21Gb/s GDDR6X memory and bandwidth of 1TB/s. It launches on January 27.

Another card that will become available on that same date is the $250 RTX 3050. Nvidia is said to be preparing a large amount of stock for the card that will exceed inventory levels of other GPUs like the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti.

RTX 4090 owners are in for some bad news
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU.

Nvidia's RTX 4090 remains the undisputed most powerful GPU on the market right now, despite being a year-and-a-half old. As such, you might think that reselling it later should be a breeze, not to mention that it should net you a nice amount of money -- but that is not always the case.

Wccftech reports that one owner of an MSI RTX 4090 tried to use the Micro Center GPU Trade-In Program to get some money back, and the GPU was valued at just $700 -- a mere 36% of the total cost of the graphics card.

Don’t buy the RTX 3060 in 2024

Nvidia's RTX 3060 is the most popular GPU around, and it's not even close. According to the latest Steam hardware survey, the 2021 GPU is in close to 7% of gaming PCs. That's a huge slice of the pie. For reference, the second most popular GPU, the RTX 2060, sits at just under 4%. It's easy to see why the GPU is popular, too. You can pick it up for between $250 and $300 -- and for even less used -- and it comes with a critical 12GB of VRAM.

It's the go-to GPU for maxed-out 1080p gaming in 2024, but based on my testing, it probably shouldn't be. The RTX 3060 is a workhorse, and for a large range of games, it's one of the best graphics cards you can buy. When it comes to the latest, most demanding games, however, the RTX 3060 struggles to keep up.

Intel may fire the first shots in the next-gen GPU war

The GPU market is about to start heating up in just a few short months, and that's not just due to AMD and Nvidia. According to a new report, Intel plans to release its highly anticipated, next-gen Arc Battlemage graphics cards sooner than many have expected, and the GPUs might drop at just the perfect time to steal some sales away from AMD and Nvidia.

The tantalizing news comes from a report by ComputerBase. The publication claims that during Embedded World 2024, an event that took place in Germany, Intel's partners implied that Arc Battlemage GPUs might launch before this year's Black Friday. Realistically, this implies that Intel would have to hit the market in early November at the latest, giving its partners and retailers enough time to make the products readily available during the Black Friday shopping craze.
