Colorful is a significant board partner for NVIDIA, especially in China. Accordingly, the company sells NVIDIA cards under multiple series, of which iCafe is one. Typically, Colorful would supply these cards to internet cafes, although some converted to crypto mining farms because they have had no clients on account of the pandemic.
Nonetheless, Colorful has now released iCafe editions of the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti, pictures of which you can view below. While we know that the RTX 3060 Ti has a GA104 GPU to the RTX 3060's GA106, the two cards look visually identical. Videocardz notes that the GA104 and GA106 are pin-compatible, which means that Colorful could be using the same PCB across the two cards.
Ultimately, Colorful's iCafe series should not interest most gamers. Both cards run at reference clock speeds, have locked TGPs and do not offer any custom features like RGB or OC modes. However, releasing cards during a pandemic that have been designed for businesses that cannot operate during a pandemic suggests that Colorful intends to sell these to crypto mining farms, as ZOTAC has clearly been doing.
