Deal: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 prices close in on MSRP as EVGA offers the GPU for US$369
Better times lie ahead for gamers who are in dire need of a graphics card upgrade. As the supply constraint of Nvidia's latest and greatest GeForce RTX GPUs slowly but surely eases, manufacturers are starting to drop their previously ludicrous prices and offer some notable deals on decent but affordable graphics cards like the mid-range RTX 3060.
EVGA in particular now offers the GeForce RTX 3060 XC Black Gaming with a dual-fan design, 12GB of GDDR6 memory as well as 3,584 CUDA cores for a reasonable US$369. Shipping is free for EVGA Elite members, all other customers pay around US$20 for regular ground shipping. This GPU deal comes fairly close to the regular MSRP of the RTX 3060, which was originally set at US$329. In comparison, vendors on Amazon are still trying to sell this graphics card for an inflated price of US$549.
The RTX 3060 is best suited for content creators and 1080p gamers as it comes with a 192-bit memory interface and a memory speed of 1,875 MHz. Furthermore, this efficient mid-range GPU only consumes up to 170W, which means that it only needs to draw power from one additional 8-pin PCIe connector. Please consult our detailed benchmarks to see how the RTX 3060 performs in a selection of popular PC games. At US$369, this graphics card is certainly a reasonable purchase for gamers who don't want to wait any longer for their graphics card upgrade.
