The new GPU information by Videocardz has leaked the ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3060 12GB variant. The ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3060 12GB seems to use a similar cooling solution and PCB design as the ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3060Ti. This data has not been confirmed by any other sources.

The RTX 3060 12GB is expected to have a GA106-300 SKU instead of the previously reported GA106-400. The GA106-300 was supposed to be on the RTX 3060 6GB model but it seems the 6GB model may be canceled and the 12GB model might be the only option, according to some sources.

According to sources the RTX 3060 12GB might launch in February. We are not sure how will this affect the January launch roadmap and will NVidia launch the cards at CES.
