Nvidia’s graphics card lineup was even more confused with CES2021

At CES 2021, Nvidia has launched a variety of graphics cards for both laptops and the new Ampere desktop graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. But one of the big things I’ve noticed is that some SKUs are currently inflated VRAM specs, which confuses the entire Nvidia RTX 3000 lineup a bit.

The top end of the new mobile stack has a 16GB RTX3080, while the desktop RTX3080 has 10GB. Similarly, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 has 12GB of VRAM, but the RTX 3060 Ti (a more powerful and 20% more expensive graphics card) has as little VRAM as 8GB.

This ultimately results in the limitation of the 192 bit memory bus on which the RTX 3060 is designed, rather than the 256 bit bus of the RTX 3060 Ti. But that makes this graphics card a bit confusing for the average consumer.
