Hopefully I can be more clear now:I am not sure to follow (it is such strange semantic to wrap my mind around), but the 3080 lite is being sold has a 3080 and an less lite will be sold has a 3080TI.
1. 3080 vs 3090. Both use GA102 as their chip. The 3080 is a cut down version of that chip. Different shader core amount and memory, different GPU name as branding.
2. 3060 12GB and 3060 6GB. Both use GA106 as their chip. The 6GB is a cut down version of that chip. Different shader core number amount and memory, but same GPU name as branding.
Yes, and they are branded as different gpus: regular or Ti version. Meanwhile, the 3060 12/6GB will both be branded as if they were the same GPU. They are not.Almost all GPU sold are a chip being cutted down to allow better yield no ?
The super designation has been used only once in the past, and it was the refreshed lineup a year later. Super is not used to differentiate tiers within the same year's lineup. This is following what Nvidia has done so far. Likely, in 2021 we'll have Super variants of the 30 series.I think they call that 3060 12 gb a 3060 super and the other one just 3060 and everything would make sense, the issue is the exact same name, not being put both on the same xx60 tier imo.
If you don't see the differences, I don't know how else to put it any clearer.
