While Nvidia has just announced the launch of a new range of RTX 3060 Ti equipped with GDDR6X memory, GALAX jumped at the chance to launch a GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Plus. In the process, the partner manufacturer unveiled a comparison video with the RTX 3070, slightly overtaken by the newcomer.
Two years ago now, Nvidia released the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with great fanfarea cheaper alternative to its classic RTX 3000, but still more powerful than the entry level, namely the RTX 3060. certain success, which prompted Nvidia to launch a new edition, equipped this time with GDDR6X memory.
If the launch was initially to take place before that of the RTX 4090 and 4080, it was finally this week that the official announcement took place. For its part, GALAX, one of Nvidia’s partner manufacturers, has just unveiled its version of this new RTX 3060 Ti, soberly titled RTX 3060 Ti Plus. And the latter to compare the graphics card to the RTX-3070 in a short video posted on his social networks.

It should be noted that the upgrade to GDDR6X VRAM is not trivial for the graphics card, as it offers 35% more bandwidth than the original model. However, the memory speed is a crucial element to appreciate the power of a GPU. Thus, while the RTX 3070 has 5888 CUDA cores, against 4864 for the RTX 3060 Ti Plus, the latter benefits from faster memory (608 Gb / s against 448 Gb / s).

Thus, it is indeed the RTX 3060 Ti Plus which offers the best performance, if we refer to the video published by GALAX. However, the difference is rather insignificant. On games like Cyberpunk 2077Spider-Man Remastered or even the recent A Plague Tale: Requiem, the advantage of the RTX 3060 Ti is only a few FPS, surfing around 70 frames per second.
Note however that the comparison is somewhat risky, the two graphics cards not being aligned on the same game scenes, while the extracts shown are relatively short. In other words, it would seem that it is not very wise at the moment to throw yourself on the RTX 3060 Ti if you already have an RTX 3070. Especially since for the moment, we have not been able to find it. on sale. So we don’t know its exact price.
