Nvidia revealed clues about the brand new RTX 3060 and 3060Ti and this article presents you in last October and they were ready to release them in December 2020, More likely in 2021. But with the pressure given by AMD with their Radeon 6000 series, Nvidia is going to release these RTX 3060 varients to market in December. This article will help you out to go over RTX 3060/3060Ti Specs, Price, Release Date, and Performances to decide whether buying an RTX 3060/3060Ti for 2021 is worthy or not.
With the huge competition given by AMD from there, Radeon 5000 and 6000 Series Nvidia had to cut down the price points of the RTX 3000 Series but they haven’t made a call for entry or mid-range level GPUs. But now they are ready to release the RTX 3060 varients for the Mid Range users and another RTX 3050 and RTX 3050Ti Series for the Entry-level users. But we can’t keep hopes on 3050 but it seems like Nvidia is focusing on RTX 3060 and RTX 3060Ti a bit more than going forward with another RTX or GTX lineup.
Specifications and Price:
Based on the information provided, The RTX 3060 will be most compatible with the RTX 2080 and the super variant of it, the RTX 2080 Super. And the RTX 3060Ti will be far closer to the RTX 3070 with few fewer performances than it. The RTX 3060Ti powers up with 4864 Cuda Cores, 152 Tensor Cores, 38 RT cores dedicated for Real-World Ray Tracing. The base Clock will be 1410MHz and the boost clock will be 1665Mhz which less than the RTX 3070 but here also we would be able to see a VRAM of 8GB GDDR6 as same as the RTX 3070. The power consumption will be around 180W which will be accurate based on the above performances and the previous cards form the RTX 3000 Series and the price point will be around 350$-400$ (about £300, AU$560) and this can be varied according to the Manufacturers as well as the price of the founders’ edition.
The RTX 3060 will be having 3840 Cuda Cores, 120 Tensor Cores, and 30 RT cores for the acceleration of Ray Tracing. A base clock of 1770Mhz and a Boost Clock of 1860Mhz will be there with the RTX 3060 and this will come with 6GB GDDR6 Memory which is quite low for 4K gaming as same as the RTX 3060Ti. The power consumption will be 180W and PSU with 450W will be enough to power this RTX 3060. Both RTX 3060 and RTX 3060Ti are based on Ampere Technology and if you need more information about the specifications, refer to the Information Sources list below. RTX 3060 will also be sold at a price point of around 300$-350$ based on these performances. The two-way independent cooling system and the other basic features may also be included in RTX 3060 and RTX 3060Ti as well.
Experts say that due to the high competition and based on sales of the RTX 3070,3080 the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060Ti will be on market around the beginning of December or in the Mid of December, But somehow according to this article “Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti is reportedly already on sale – just not to you” we can have a positive idea that most probably we’ll be able to see them at the beginning of December or even earlier at the end of November. So if you are going to buy a brand new GPU, wait till Christmas and there will be more reasonable options for you by that time
Based on the above performances both RTX 3060 and RTX 3060Ti won’t be able to handle 4K gaming very well but you’ll be able to play in a higher FPS rate in 1440p or 1080p which is quiet enough. But if you want to go forward in 2021 in 4K gaming, try the AMD Radeon 6000 series or Nvidia’s RTX 3000 Series and you’ll have what you want. The below gameplay will comparison will give you the basic idea of how it’s going to be but remember the real-world benchmarks and performances will be different from them.
The RTX 3060 variant is for the mid-range users to get maximum performances and a massive gaming experience in gaming. There are rumors that there will be another lineup as RTX 3050 but they are not yet confirmed. The best thing is to wait till the end of December and give time to the manufacturers to compete with each other and give the best GPU for the value.
