Rumours emerged earlier today that told of an RTX 3060 graphics card with 12GB of GDDR6 memory. 12GB. That would be, uh, more than an Nvidia RTX 3070 and more capacious than the 10GB of GDDR6X on the RTX 3080. So what’s the deal?

The initial rumours come from website MyDrivers, who claims that the new RTX 3060 was originally intended for just 6GB of memory, but that was scrapped likely to fend off AMD’s RX 6000-series and their clean sweep of 16GB memory.
