Nvidia continues its spree of RTX 30 series releases with the little brother of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti making its debut at CES 2021. At Nvidia’s GeForce Special Event live stream, the brand launched its cheapest RTX 30 series graphics card yet, the RTX 3060.
Nvidia has finally announced a sub $350 graphics card which replaces the incumbent RTX 2060 Super in terms of pricing. Based on Nvidia’s GeForce Special Live Event, it seems like there’s no Founders Edition version of the RTX 3060.
The Nvidia RTX 3060 has 12GB of GDDR6 which is higher compared to the RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070, and even the RTX 3080. However, it has a slightly lower memory bus at 192bit with a memory clock of 16Gbps. This type of move from Nvidia is a similar approach to the previous RTX 20 Super launch.
