A video was published on the Chinese social media platform Bilibili at the weekend in which various custom designs of the upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti could be seen. These were models from the manufacturer Gigabyte, for which clock rates are now also available.
The said video, on which the “Twitter detective” @momomo_us pointed out, is no longer online. The website VideoCardz was able to save screenshots and also lists the alleged clock rates (if known) of the overclocked graphics cards.

Accordingly, the RTX 3060 Ti Eagle OC, which has already been shown, will come up with marginal overclocking to 1,695 MHz, which is 1.8 percent more than the expected standard boost clock of 1,665 MHz. Among the models shown in the video, this is the lowest clock rate, which is also associated with the most compact cooler: The design has two fans and occupies two slots. An 8-pin connector is sufficient for the power supply.
The cooler of the RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC appears bulkier with the same power connection but three fans. However, no clock is given for this model. The RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC Pro variant should be a bit thicker and occupy three slots. At 1,770 MHz Boost, the power supply is increased to 8 pin and 6 pin.
The Gigabyte RTX 3060 Ti Aorus Master should deliver the highest boost clock of 1,800 MHz, which corresponds to 135 MHz or around eight percent more. The three-slot design with three fans and six video outputs was leaked in advance.
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has long been no secret and images and specifications have been seeping through for weeks. The latter were recently set in stone by a data sheet from the manufacturer Manli: The graphics chip has 4,864 Cuda cores (FP32-ALUs) and is a stripped-down version of the GA104-GPU of the GeForce RTX 3070 (test) with 5,888 active FP32-ALUs. There is no difference to the RTX 3070 in terms of memory and its connection: 8 GB GDDR6 with 14 Gbps are attached to the 256-bit memory interface.
It is still not entirely sure what the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will cost. The Founders Edition continues to be priced at just under 400 US dollars / euros. The custom designs are likely to be more expensive, at least in an overclocked version. An online shop recently prematurely advertised custom designs from Gigabyte, Inno3D and Zotac at prices ranging from 460 to 560 euros. Ultimately, the actual market price depends on demand and availability, which is becoming very clear these days with the high-end graphics cards that are hardly available or only at a high price.
The presentation of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is still expected in the rumor mill for December 2nd.
