Our personal sources have confirmed one thing that Videocardz has already posted; specifically that the RTX 3060 could be launching within the final week of February. As all the time with launch timelines, Jensen might nonetheless transfer the date round however contemplating channel companions and OEMs are concerned – it appears unlikely. This is able to be a tough launch and assuming miners and scalpers do not scoop all the things up, the supply of inventory ought to be good. We could have one other unique about AMD Ryzen availability shortly as nicely.

NVIDIA RTX 3060 mainstream king touchdown on cabinets by the tip of February for $329

The discharge schedule of the RTX 3060 (as revealed by Videocardz) is as follows:

  • thirtieth December: Press and influencer seeding listing for the RTX 3060 supplied by AICs.
  • nineteenth February: AICs can begin seeding samples to press on this date.
  • Finish of February: Evaluation embargo lifts (doubtless round twenty eighth February)
  • Finish of February: RTX 3060 on-shelf availability begins.

The NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU is an 8nm Samsung affair utilizing the GA106-300 core. It incorporates a base clock of 1320 MHz and a lift clock of 1777 Mhz. With a CUDA core rely of 3584, this GPU can hit a peak horsepower of 12.7 TFLOPs – which is nearly on par with the older Turing based mostly flagships. The GPU additionally options 28 RT clusters and 112 Tensor clusters. Compared, the RTX 3060 Ti is predicated on the GA104-200 die and cal clock as much as 1665 MHz. It makes up for that lack of clock velocity with ac ore rely of 4864 CUDA cores with a ensuing horsepower of 16.2 TFLOPs. The RTX 3060 could have an MSRP of 329 USD whereas teh RTX 3060 Ti has an MSRP of 399 USD (in different phrases it’s 21% costlier whereas being 27% sooner on paper).

Apparently, the RTX 3060 will ship with 12 GB of GDDR6 – though we’re listening to NVIDIA would possibly resolve to chop this to 6GB as a consequence of reminiscence provide points (this half is *not* confirmed and ought to be taken with a grain of salt) and a 15 Gbps reminiscence clock coupled to a 192-bit bus width. It incorporates a reminiscence bandwidth of 260 GB/s and a TDP of 170W. However, its elder brother, the RTX 3060 Ti will characteristic an 8GB GDDR6 spec with 14 Gbps coupled to a 256 bit bus and a bandwidth of 448 GB/s. The TDP of the cardboard can be barely increased at 200 watts.

Sadly for players, the cryptocurrency market has made a large comeback in 2021, and Ethereum (the most well-liked altcoin that may be mined with a GPU) has already breached the $1300 USD degree a number of occasions. This implies you might be most unlikely to search out these GPUs on the really useful worth factors (if in any respect) and the demand/provide scenario will doubtless drive these costs a lot increased.

With NVIDIA attempting to satisfy demand by tapping Samsung, it does appear to be issues won’t enhance for players untill the second half of 2021 – if in any respect. Cryptocurrency demand is unlikely to go away anytime quickly (regardless that Ethereum is shifting to proof of stake someday this 12 months which ought to eradicate a really giant chunk of GPU mining demand) and producers like NVIDIA could have no selection however to easily step up their provide sport and implement strict countermeasures to verify their GPUs find yourself the place they belong: within the arms of precise players.
