A new report has shed some light on how much some custom Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 models could cost upon launch. At US$484.99 MSI's Ventus X2 is the most affordable of the lot. On the flip side, the MSI Gaming X Trio will cost an eye-watering US$514.9. We should know for sure on its February 25 launch date.

Although it is yet to be released officially, there are quite a lot of Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards out in the wild. Some have made their way to crypto miners, while others have ended up on used hardware markets. Although its on-paper cost is US$329, opportunistic retailers have been selling it for astronomically high prices well before its official release date. A new report from Coreteks gives us a more realistic idea about how much some third-party Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards will cost on its February 25 launch date.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060s in question here belong to three AIBs, namely MSI, Zotac and Asus. Retailing at US$514.9, the MSI Gaming X Trio will be the most expensive version of the lot. Its sibling, the MSI VentusX2, will be relatively more affordable at US$484.99. Zotac's only GeForce 3060 variant will cost US$499.99. Lastly, the Asus ROG Strix and Asus TUF Gaming will set you back by US$499 and US$489, respectively. These prices appear to be set in a store based in the U.S, although it is hard to tell which one.

 

SKUPrice
MSI RTX 3060 Gaming X TrioUS$514.9
MSI RTX 3060 VentusX2US$484.99
Zotac RTX 3060 GamingUS$499.99
Asus ROG StrixUS$499
Asus TUF GamingUS$489

 

Now that all the high-end Ampere cards (except Nvidia the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti) are out of the way, many gamers are looking forward to getting their hands on Nvidia's entry-level GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards due to their competitive prices. It'll be interesting to see if Nvidia's newly-instituted hash rate limits and a new line of crypto-centric SKUs deter miners from gobbling up graphics cards by the truckload.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
