Galax roadmap confirms 20GB RTX 3080 models and RTX 3060 plans

In China, Galax has showcased its hardware roadmap to its employees and partners, revealing three unannounced Nvidia RTX 30 series products. For starters, we have Nvidia's 20GB RTX 3080, a new model which will slide between the RTX 3080 10GB and RTX 3090, next, we have Nvidia's RTX 3060 and finally, an unknown PG142 SKU 0 model.  

If the charting that Galax uses is legitimate, Nvidia's RTX 3070 will deliver performance levels which are slightly below Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti and their RTX 3060 will provide performance levels which are similar to an RTX 2080. The roadmap below was uncovered by @9550pro on Twitter. 

Nvidia's unknown PG142 SKU 0 model appears to be the company's rumoured RTX 3070 Ti/RTX 3070 Super model. This GPU is said to offer users more VRAN capacity than a standard RTX 3070 and more CUDA cores. 

In recent history, Gigabyte product listings have also revealed plans to launch 20GB RTX 30 series graphics cards. These models will offer enough VRAM to meet the needs of future games, though the release timing of these products could depend on Micron, who don't plan to release larger 2GB (16Gb) GDDR6X memory chips until early 2021. That said, Nvidia could release 20GB cards by using two times as many VRAM chips.

I'm quite looking forward to seeing if there will be any performance differences between the 10GB models and 20GB models, Will they use the higher 21Gbps GDDR6X on the aftermarket 3080's maybe considering the only real reason they didn't on the 3080 FE was heat issues and all AIB's sort of fell in line with Nvidia's use of the slower 19Gbps memory, Will be interesting to see.Quote

Probably very little. It will cater for all the "10GB isnt enough for 4k" people, that pull out the handful of titles where it does struggle.

That being said, for the price you would expect the 3080 to handle anything you throw at it but no where in the books did Nvidia say 4k @ OMG its higher than ultra settings.Quote

I read they will use the faster stuff when the core design is refined as much as it can be and TGP is dropped. I think they are also waiting for the stuff that can fit double in the same space (that's what she said).

The 2080 launched as a 4k card. Basically it was 1080Ti like performance, so 4k card it was. Within two years 8gb was starting to creak quite heavily.

Silly design really. I mean, 20gb is far too much, yet unless they derp the controller there's not much they can do about it.Quote
