RTX 4090 too expensive? Nvidia resurrects another old favorite

UK retailer Scan.co.uk (opens in new tab) has listed (and then quickly delisted) a new budget Nvidia GPU, but it sadly isn’t the RTX 4060 we’ve been waiting for see. No, it’s a new version of the already-excellent RTX 3060 Ti – now equipped with upgraded GDDR6X VRAM.

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