Nvidia has officially announced its Geforce RTX 3060 graphics card and it comes with 12GB of GDDR6 memory and should pack a significant punch at $329 when it launches in late February.

Delivering up to 10x Ray-Tracing performance of the GTX 1060, according to Nvidia, the RTX 3060 is based on GA106-300 with 3584 CUDA cores, 28 RT cores, and 112 Tensor Cores, peaking at 13 TFLOPs of single-precision compute performance. It also pushes 25 RT-TFLOPs, and 101 Tensor-TFLOPs.

As noted, the RTX 3060 comes with 12GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory interface. Unfortunately, Nvidia did not reveal full details so we are either looking at 14Gbps or 16Gbps memory clock, and it might be left to Nvidia AIC partners as the RTX 3060 will most likely only come as a custom solution and not as a reference or the FE card.

According to Nvidia, the RTX 3060 12GB should offer over 60 frames per second in most titles, which should be even enough to run Cyberpunk 2077 at over 60 FPS with RT and DLSS, most likely with somewhat lower details.

The TDP is set at 170W, and it will most likely end up with a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, just like the RTX 3060 Ti.

 As noted, the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 graphics card will be available in late February with its MSRP set at $329.
