NVIDIA, which is being collectively opposed by its peers on the acquisition of arm, this morning revealed the release date of its next geforce desktop graphics card RTX 3060.RTX 3060 is considered to be the best-selling model in the 30 series desktop market. Previously, it disclosed the release date at the end of February on CES 2021, and now it has been locked to go on sale on February 25 at a price of $329.
In a brief review, RTX 3060 is the next graphics card in NVIDIA's ampere architecture. RTX 3060 adopts the new ga106 GPU, which has already appeared in RTX 3060 laptop. RTX 3060 pays more attention to the price / performance balance of graphics card products. It is a cheaper and lower performance graphics card mainly aimed at the mainstream game market. For a long time, NVIDIA's 60 level graphics card has been the main part of the company's 1080p games, and it is also the most popular model in many markets. RTX 3060 is expected to play the same role in the ampere / 30 family.
NVIDIA announced most of its specifications as early as January. It provides 28 SM (3584 CUDA cores) and 12gb gddr6 running on 192 bit memory bus. Like the previous 60 level graphics card, the memory bus with non dual power supply means that the amount of memory shipped by NVIDIA is a little strange. In this case, the 12gb video memory is actually more than that on the RTX 3080.
Market participants are very optimistic about this graphics card, because no matter good or bad, the RTX 3060 on the shelf can almost be emptied in a few seconds - miners and game players are eyeing "equipment". So for anyone who wants to snap up the card, it's best to be prepared to camp at the retailer early that morning on Thursday.
Different from other RTX 30 series graphics cards launched so far, NVIDIA will not produce any foundations edition graphics cards for RTX 3060 series, so all manufacturers that release the graphics card models will bring their own non-public versions. This means higher performance, advanced features, and correspondingly higher prices.
