Why is there supposed to be a higher ram lower Cuda core 3060?! Does that make any sense? Also, a bump from 8 to 10gb for the 3070 is a bit disappointing, especially with that oddball 12gb 3060 in mind.

I could see a need for a lower-price card for productivity workloads that would need more ram and couldn't utilize the processing power of the higher-end models.

With the 3060: yes, the 12GB 3060 Ti model seems to be missing here ;)

Regarding 3070 Ti @ 10GB:
regular 3070 has a GA104 Chip with 256bit RAM interface - thus 8 GB
3070 Ti probably has a partly deactivated GA102 Chip with 320bit RAM interface - thus 10 GB ... or 20 GB, which would be excessive :dunno:

Apparently GPU prices are starting to fall....



Nvidia - Resizable BAR (Base Address Register)
AMD - Smart Access Memory (SAM)

If your lucky you might about a 10% performance increase.

If your mobo, gpu and cpu are compatabile, you probably need latest mobo and gpu, bios, vbios and drivers. Ususally a setting in bios for BAR.

Some older gpu's and mobo's may get updates for this.
