Something to seek forward to: With the start of the RTX 3060 just over seven days away, Nvidia has finally reconfirmed its card’s specs on the company’s website. The Ampere line’s best and newest entry has an MSRP of $329, though many retailers have already pressed that price up by on average 75 percent for pre-orders.
Nvidia has been pretty tight-lipped about the RTX 3060’s full specs since it got announced at CES in Economy is shown. We heard earlier this week truth card would launch with an MSRP of $329 on February 26, though with no Founders Edition, don’t quite expect many third-party models to stick to that price.
Now, Nvidia has updated its online business with new RTX 3060 specs. Team Green have already revealed that the card would offer 12GB of GDDR6, more than the RTX 3060 Ti’s 8GB, and a 192-bit bus—the Ti version has a 256-bit memory interface.
Nvidia includes confirmed the RTX 3060’s the 3, 584 GPU cores and starting clock speed of 1, 320 Megahertz (1, 780 MHz boost). As opposed to the 3060 Ti, that’s fewer colora??es, a lower base but a higher enhancement. There was no word on RT nicely Tensor cores, though it’s is actually feature 28 of the former combined with 112 of the latter.
Power-wise, the card has a 170W TDP, requiring a 550W power supply—50W lower than the RTX 3060 Ti demands.
While the RTX 3060’s $329 price is certainly compelling, it’s doubtlessly going to be subject to the same problems furthermore every other Ampere release: difficult to find, a first-rate target for scalpers, and very good retail prices.
