After the huge announcement of Nvidia’s RTX 30 series graphic cards GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3090, and RTX 3070. The graphic cards announce by Nvidia up till now are from the high end serious, the budget segment cards like GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3050 has no official announcement or confirmation, but rumours have started to surface about the possible configurations of the RTX 3060.
As per our sources, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 is going to use GA106 silicon and boast 4,864 CUDA cores. Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060is Going to be an 8GB GDDR6 card, For Ampere each streaming multiprocessor (SM) is home to 128 CUDA cores, 1 RT core, and 4 Tensor cores, so it means you’re looking at 38 SMs, 38 RT cores, and 152 Tensor cores.
We still don’t know much about Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 like what would be the Base clock or Boost clock or how many ROP’s Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 lays claim or how fast the memory bus is, lets compare Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 info we have with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 VS Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090
Even without the full specifications of GeForce RTX 3060, we can say for sure that GeForce RTX 3060 surpass GeForce RTX 2060 in every possible way. According to our sources, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 can be 2 to 2.5 times faster than GeForce RTX 2060. That housed 1,920 CUDA cores. In fact, if these numbers are right, the RTX 3060 has 2.5x the number of CUDA cores as the RTX 2060. The boost in RT cores isn’t quite so pronounced though, going from 30 to 38. The new cores are faster so we will also see a significant jump in ray tracing performance as promised with the other Ampere cards.
Gaming on GeForce RTX 3060
Nvidia clam of 1440p gaming with RTX 3070, 4k gaming with RTX 3080 and 8k gaming with RTX 3090, so we can aim for 1080p gaming with RTX 3060 at max settings and 1440p in medium setting, with real-time ray tracing enabled.
Launch Date For Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060
As per our sources and seeing the previous generation for inspiration we can see the Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 around New year. The 2080 and 2080 Ti releases in September 2018 and we see the RTX 30 series (RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3090) and the RTX 2060 was released in January 2019. If we assume the same kind of timeframes, that means we could be looking at the RTX 3060 landing in the new year.
Price For Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060
The Pricing is a little tricky question as we’ve had a number of different SKUs of the GeForce RTX 2060. As per our sources, we can see the original priced at $349.
