If you're interested in picking up an RTX 3060 Ti tomorrow you should be able to find it in major retailers as well as major online stores.

The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will be available on December 2, i.e., tomorrow, starting at INR 35,900, as custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, from top add-ins card providers such as ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac and as a Founders Edition from NVIDIA.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition has improved specifications in nearly every aspect compared to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Founders Edition but it also uses more power at 200W, compared to 175W for the latter.

The first item on that list, DLSS, is an AI technology built into the RTX line of Nvidia cards. Priced at $399, the RTX 3060 Ti is now the cheapest member of the 30-series graphics cards based on Nvidia's new Ampere architecture and will be replacing the RTX 2060 Super that launched at the same price past year. It features 38 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), four more SMs than the previous RTX 2060 Super.

To help with the performance, the GPU also supports Nvidia's DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, an AI-enhanced super sampling solution that uses machine learning for image reconstruction at a higher resolution while working with a low base resolution. The RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition has 152 third generation Tensor cores and 38 second generation RT cores. The new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is here after a series of leaks and rumors.

The RTX 3060 can be seen as a replacement for the RTX 2060 Super, but in terms of specs, it is a toned version of the RTX 3070. The card is clocked at 1410Mhz, with a boost clock of 1665Mhz.

The GPU features 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the same as that of the last-gen RTX 2060 Super, with a frequency of 7,000 MHz on a 256-bit interface and a total bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Earlier this morning in a press release from Nvidia, we got some enlightening details about the GPU manufacturer's next offering in the RTX 30 series of cards. It can draw 200W of power and a 600W power supply is recommended for this card.

The new 1440p gaming GPU from NVIDIA is targeted to break the dominance of the Radeon RX 5700XT. The card will be available from December 2 for $399, and aftermarket cards from the likes of ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac will debut in the coming days and weeks.
