Nvidia Officially Announces RTX 3060 Graphics Card, Available Later in February 2021
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 with 10x powerful Ray-Tracing performance than GTX 1060 hits the markets as of next month.
Before the new generation of consoles starting, Nvidia announced its new generation of GPUs with three powerful models of RTX 30 series including RTX 3070, RTX 3080, and RTX 3090. In fact, it seemed the company has decided to remove the XX60 tier and replace it with a powerful card at top of the table which is XX90. But we were wrong, the 60 tier of Nvidia GPUs is still there and RTX 3060 is coming to the market later next month.
In the last few months, we’ve heard some rumors indicating the existence of RTX 3060, and finally, Nvidia revealed the new tire of its Ampere-based RTX 30 series GPUs yesterday. Coming with 12 GB of GDDR 6 memory, this new replacement for RTX 2060 and GTX 1060 will bring the new generation of Nvidia’s GPUs into more gaming PCs around the world, thanks to its affordable price of $329.
As Nvidia claims, RTX 3060 is 10 times powerful than GTX 1060 when it comes to Ray-Tracing performance. The new card will have 13 shader-TFLOPs, 25 RT-TFLOPs for ray tracing, 101 tensor-TFLOPs to power NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), and 192-bit memory interface. If you combine your 3060 graphics card with a compatible motherboard, all of the GPU memory can be accessed by the CPU at once, thanks to the PCI Express technology.
In addition to Nvidia DLSS, the new tire of the RTX 30 series will also support Nvidia Reflex and Nvidia Broadcast. The former is a new technology for reducing system latency which gives a significant privilege in competitive multiplayer games where seconds matter. On the other hand, the latter is a set of AI enhancements in video and audio sections that you can benefit from in your video calls and other similar functions.
In addition to the features above, RTX 3060 will support some popular features in GeForce Experience software, including One-click automatic GPU Tuning and Enhanced in-game monitoring overlay.
Later in February, you can expect various versions of RTX 3060 to appear in the market from different companies such as Gigabyte, Asus, Evga, MSI, Zotac, and more.
