Alongside the announcement of some new Reflex enable monitors Nvidia went straight into finally confirming the RTX 3060, priced at a very appetizing looking $329. Obviously, we already have the 3060 TI but this latest offering brings Ampere technology to its lowest price point yet and it’s due in February.
Coming in at $70 cheaper than the TI it is also supposed to consume less power so could find itself being the perfect fit for many gamers on a budget.
Spec-wise for the GeForce RTX 3060, NVIDIA has enabled a total of 28 SM units on it which results in a total of 3584 CUDA cores, 112 TMUs. In addition to the CUDA cores, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 also comes packed with next-generation Ray-Tracing)cores, Tensor cores, and brand new SM or streaming multi-processor units. The graphics card has a TDP of 165W.
Obviously, if 2020 taught us anything it will be that these cards will be nigh on impossible to get your hands on in the first instance but we dream of the day when all the latest technology is easily obtained by the regular joe on the street.
