NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series only very recently launched, with its GeForce RTX 3080 only having hit the global market less than a week ago. To make matters more interesting, one of the brand’s AiB partners, Gigabyte, may have accidentally let slip the existence of three other cards: the GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070 16GB, and RTX 3080 20GB.
The three unreleased models were reportedly listed on Gigabyte’s AORUS product page, and unsurprisingly, the model numbers seem to indicate that the cards will be released under three SKUs. Including Eagle, Vision, and the Gaming lineups. In regards to the alleged RTX 3060, you’ll notice that there is an “S” in its name. It’s unclear if the letter stands for “Super” or something else, but it’s also important to note that the letter is also found in some versions of RTX 3070 16GB and RTX 3080 20GB.
The revelation of these cards do confirm initial rumours pertaining to NVIDIA’s aim at releasing souped-up versions of its current GeForce RTX 30 series lineup, which is a bit odd considering the RTX 3070 won’t be hitting the shelves till next month. On another note, it is also speculated that while the RTX 3080 20GB obviously comes with a higher graphics memory cap, it’s not known if NVIDIA will also increase the core count of the card in kind.
You can check out the listing yourselves if you’re interested, but you’re going to have to create an account and register yourselves with Gigabyte before you’re given access. Further, it’s fair to say that until the cards are released, the names of these cards are still subject to change.
