    Are they bringing these out because they are struggling to make the 3060Ti and are just releasing a card with the chips that arent hitting the specs for 3060Ti's?

    I think it's a different chip - according to Techpowerup GPU database the 3060 Ti uses GA104 (same chip as 3070 but cut back). 3060 uses GA106.

    Should be a completely new chip underneath, GA106 which is far smaller than the GA104 in the 3060ti, therefore much cheaper to make.

    Rumours are they still had to cut down the active cores in GA106 though, so looks like yields are not great even for a smaller chip.

    Perhaps the tech press should start referring to these 'releases' as tech Demo's from now on.
    Since, in reality they are all but unobtainable by the general public.
    And stop quoting MRSP's a these are equally disingenuous.

    Nah, the MSRP is just that, just because you cant get them at that price, unless you are really really lucky, doesn't change what MSRP actually means...

    It does change the value proposition though, under £400 for a 3060 Ti would be a buy for me, the £470+ they're going for would be a no buy, that's the sort of increase in price I'd expect from the next tier up.

    CEX are buying them at that price, cash or voucher, which says how much they want them...
    I paid £380.50 for mine delivered, was a no brainer at that price, I could probably sell my 3060Ti and get a 3080 with prices how they are, its rediculous...

    It's also useful for tech sites to report the MSRPs so that there's some kind of public record/pressure from consumers for retailers to meet it, no matter it's currently not going to be effective.

    Harsh! I liken it more to Gorillas. they do exist, but only a select few get to see them in the wild. The rest of us just get to hear about them and only see them on TV, in books or at the zoo. Like Gorillas they are also in danger of becoming extinct before their time.
