NVIDIA has introduced a new member to the RTX 30 family, the RTX 3060 12 GB. The RTX 3060 is intended at those who are looking to upgrade from a GTX 1060-class card and features 3,584 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6 192-bit memory, and will be the first RTX 30 card to support resizable BAR. The RTX 3060 12 GB will be available in late February starting from US$329.

We've been expecting NVIDIA to announce an RTX 3060 12 GB for quite some time, and here it is now. NVIDIA said the RTX 3060 brings RTX capabilities to more gamers, especially those who have been traditionally using a GTX 1060-class GPU.

NVIDIA says that the RTX 3060 offers 2x the raster performance and 10x the ray tracing performance of the GTX 1060. We wonder why this is even a comparison as the GTX 1060 was never a ray tracing card in the first place.

Key specifications of the RTX 3060 include:

  • 13 shader-TFLOPs
  • 25 RT-TFLOPs for ray tracing
  • 101 tensor-TFLOPs to power NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling)
  • 192-bit memory interface
  • 12GB of GDDR6 memory

NVIDIA also confirmed that the RTX 3060 will be the first RTX 30 series card to support resizable BAR along with the usual NVIDIA DLSS, Reflex, and Broadcast.

The RTX 3060 12 GB will be based on a GA106 core that features 3,584 CUDA cores with a base clock of 1.32 GHz and a boost of 1.78 GHz. The card will feature a 16 Gbps memory clock and will have a total board power of 170 W.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 will be available in late February starting at US$329. Around the same time, NVIDIA will release an updated GeForce driver and corresponding VBIOS updates that will bring resizable BAR support to all RTX 30 GPUs including Founders Editions and add-in board (AiB) cards.

The RTX 3060 12 GB will be available in both stock and overclocked models from NVIDIA's AiB partners including Asus, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
