    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU is out starting today at 9AM PST


    Posted: 25 Feb 2021
    The GeForce RTX 3060 is out today starting at 9 a.m. pacific time. With 10x the ray tracing performance of the GeForce GTX 1060, and double the rasterized performance, the new GeForce RTX 3060 offers previous-gen gamers a massive upgrade thatíll get them playing the latest and greatest games with fast frame rates, high fidelity graphics, and game-changing features like ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, and NVIDIA Reflex.


    The GeForce RTX 3060 has the power to dazzle you with immersive ray-traced effects in Control, Cyberpunk 2077, Fortnite, Watch Dogs: Legion, and many other titles

    The venerable GeForce GTX 1060 is the most popular graphics card on Steam, having offered users years of high quality 1080p gaming. Now, however, itís starting to show its age as the production values of the latest and greatest games continue to improve, demanding more and more from your GPU.

    For example, gamers were playing Watch Dogs 2 with high settings at 60 frames per second on the GeForce GTX 1060, but with Watch Dogs: Legion, released last October, they only get 24 frames per second. And an even bigger change is underway: turn ray tracing on and these games become unplayable on the GeForce GTX 1060. Furthermore, the GeForce GTX 1060 lacks the latest enhancements and features of the newest GPUs; features that can improve your experience.

    Enter the GeForce RTX 3060, which brings the power of Ampere, our 2nd Generation RTX architecture, to every gamer.

    GeForce RTX 3060 Features and Benefits

    Having been built using the same NVIDIA Ampere Architecture as the rest of the GeForce RTX 30 Series, the new GeForce RTX 3060 offers all the same advancements, benefits and features, improving your gaming, live streaming, content creation, and work.

    2nd Generation Ray Tracing Cores give you the hardware to run the latest ray-traced titles with solid performance. 3rd Generation Tensor Cores power NVIDIA DLSS to boost frame rates in ray-traced and rasterized games.

    NVIDIA Reflex reduces system latency in competitive multiplayer games, helping get shots off faster, which can make all the difference between success and defeat. NVIDIA Broadcast uses Tensor Cores and AI to enhance your live streaming and conference calls with near-magical noise removal, virtual green screens, and more features that transform your space into a home studio. And the GeForce RTX 3060 also includes our initial support for Resizable BAR on desktop GPUs.



    For the complete lowdown on the GeForce RTX 3060ís capabilities, head here. And be sure to check out reviews for the card from your favorite sites and channels ahead of its launch at 9 a.m. pacific time today.

    Again, big thank you!. The reason why I was asking is because as you might already know I bought a PC last year with a NVIDIA RTX 2030Ti and wanted this information just in case I want to upgrade my GPU card in the near future.

    Thx for the info. Always good to know, but I am not in a rush to buy right now and almost sure before mid-year by July, we will probably see a new generation of Video card from NVIDIA ... or not. I think the RTX 3070 came out 3-4 months after I bought my PC (second option in my profile's specs). Thx again!

    This is grossly simplifed, but it appears that a 3070 is a slight downgrade from a 2080ti. UserBenchmark: Nvidia RTX 2080-Ti vs 3070

    A 3080 wouldn't be much of an upgrade. A 3090 would be better. UserBenchmark: Nvidia RTX 2080-Ti vs 3090 About $1.5k US list, double that from resellers (aka scalpers).

    I wonder which will end first - the Coronavirus pandemic (at least in the US), or the silicon drought?

    I think I have hit the jackpot today with all the good and informative referenced links I am having from you Guys. I am not an expert when it comes to Display Adapters and I am always scared to play with overclocking. The day, not too far way, will come where I would certainly decide to upgrade and I will have a good reference guide to make a well-thought decision.

    With regard to Coronavirus pandemic Vs Silicon drought, the latter is the least of my worries and the vast majority of people around the world would pretty sure agree with me that we all are starting to feel the lockdown fatigue. I cannot wait to get back to my normal life just as it was before the pandemic. Will we ever, only time will tell...

    Thx mate!
