NVIDIA has a brand new driver out at present for its first Ada Lovelace GPU, the GeForce RTX 4090, nevertheless it additionally provides assist for up to date RTX 30 collection playing cards.
NVIDIA’s Newest GPU Driver Not Simply Helps Ada Lovelace “GeForce RTX 4090” However Additionally Provides RTX 3070 Ti & RTX 3060 Collection Too
The brand new graphics driver from NVIDIA — the 522.25 Game Prepared driver — was launched at present to totally unleash the potential of the RTX 4090 graphics card. What was sudden was assist added to 3 unreleased however rumored RTX 30 collection playing cards, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with GA102 GPU, the RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X reminiscence, and likewise the RTX 3060 with 8 GB reminiscence.
VideoCardz was made conscious of this discovery by one in all their readers (“westlake”), which caused an investigation into the nv_dispig.inf file, which lists all the gadget IDs within the newest graphics driver update.
The three new gadget IDs added to the file from at present’s update are:
NVIDIA_DEV.2207 is concerning the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti from the GA102 GPU collection, NVIDIA_DEV.24C9 is for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with the GDDR6X reminiscence from Micron, and the NVIDIA_DEV.2544 is for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 with a meager 8GB of onboard reminiscence.
It’s unknown why the corporate didn’t point out the assist for the earlier era, albeit newer playing cards. They might permit the corporate’s companions to make extra reasonably priced graphics playing cards with up to date specs.
Additionally, it’s unknown when these playing cards will launch. Nonetheless, if this data was given to their companions earlier than the GeForce RTX 40 collection launch at present, it’s speculated that the brand new GPUs will launch throughout the following months.
The entire file record from VideoCardz is listed under.

We have no idea the complete specs but of the three playing cards as effectively. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with the GA102 GPU might provide 6144 CUDA cores with a lift reminiscence clock of 19 GBps. Within the GPU, it’s set to take care of 8GB of GDDR6X reminiscence, a 256-bit bus, and a bandwidth of 608 GB/s.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti can also be anticipated to supply 8GB of GDDR6X discrete reminiscence onboard, with 4864CUDA cores and the identical reminiscence bus, however the remainder of the graphics card is a thriller.
Lastly, the GeForce RTX 3060 8GB variant is anticipated to hold the identical discrete reminiscence, 3584 CUDA cores, enhance clock of 15 GBps, 128-bit reminiscence bus, and 240 GB/s of reminiscence bandwidth.
