While Nvidia never confirmed the official launch date or even the RTX 3060 Ti for that matter, it can't be considered as an official delay, and while the RTX 3060 Ti has been rumored for November 17th launch date, it appears that we won't see it before early December.
The rumor originated from Expreview.com, which claims that the new date is set for December 2nd and that the RTX 3060 Ti is expected to be faster than RTX 2080 Super, depending on the benchmark or game. This does not come as a surprise considering that the RTX 3070 is going head to head with the RTX 2080 Ti.
In case you missed the previous rumors, the RTX 3060 Ti is based on a GA104 GPU with 4864 CUDA cores, 1024 less than the RTX 3070. On the other hand, it still comes with the same 8GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface. The TDP is rumored to be set at 180W, which means it will need a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.
The RTX 3060 Ti could launch priced below $400, and it remains to be seen if Nvidia will launch in force, otherwise, it could miss the all-important holiday shopping season. It is still not clear if we'll see a Founders Edition or if the RTX 3060 Ti will only come in custom designs from Nvidia AIC partners.
