The new computer GPUs that have launched through the past few months have done so at a furious pace within the $500-and-up price range. Just this week, another new 2020 GPU makes it to the market commanding a lower price. The Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti which is said to be priced at $399 and is going to launch on December 2.
Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti at $399
This year, once again, Nvidia is now leaving people way in the dark about how much stock can be expected to reach the stores. According to the story from ArsTechnica, the company had manufactured at least one of them, at any rate. The usual gamut of the shown benchmarks shows that the performance is actually on par with the previous RTX 2080 Super last year costing about half of the price
Just like the other RTX GPUs, Nvidia's new RTX 3060 Ti now features proprietary processing cores or the Tensor cores as well as the RT cores. In order to get the $399 price, the RTX 3060 Ti actually drops its specs compared to the other high-ranked models, especially CUDA cores.
RTX 3060 Ti VS AMD Radeon RX 6800
When it comes to the overall score, the RX 6800 scored 15,012 while the RTX 3060 Ti 12,052 when it came to Time Spy. The Fire Strike Ultra scored the RX 6800 at 10,560 while the RTX 3060 Ti scored 7,221.
The Port Royal scored the RX 6800 at 7,582 while the RTX 3060 Ti at 6,950. The control "threshold" bench or 4K/Ultra results came back showing the RX 6800 at 20.3 while the RTX 3060 Ti at 22.7. Although the RX 6800 scored higher overall in performance, the RTX 3060 Ti had an impressive control "threshold" bench at 22.7 versus the RX 6800 at 20.3.
Nvidia VS AMD
As of the moment, AMD is coming aggressively not just with Ryzen processors directly competing with Intel but also with their Radeon competing with Nvidia. Although Nvidia came out with the GeForce RTX 3090 which was supposedly the most powerful GPUs of 2020, the price was quite problematic for some gamers and aside from that, the availability of stock was another problem.
Despite the huge price, the GPU was reportedly hard to source out due to the lack of stock. The AMD RX 6800 that was reportedly better than the RTX 3090 but had the same problem with supply. This means that whichever way gamers choose to go, the problematic availability will be a problem shared on both fronts.
AMD has reportedly been competing not just with performance but also with price. An article by Tom's Hardware shows how the company does what it does and competes with other companies like Nvidia in the GPU market with little to no other competition. However, things might have changed with the new RX 6800. When it comes to stock competition, both companies are currently problematic as the demand is high but the supply is still really low.
