Nvidia’s upcoming new GeForce RTX 3060 is on its way After all, the said RTX 3060 is reportedly going to bring Nvidia’s awesome Ampere architecture all the way down to $329, this is a price that us mere mortals could probably be able to afford when new stock hits the shelves.

How good is the RTX 3060? 

According to an article by PCGamer, indeed, the upcoming Nvidia RTX 3060 will almost certainly sell out in greater volumes and also be used by far more gamers, than the headline grabbing beasts like the previous Nvidia RTX 3080 or even the Nvidia RTX 3090. Approximately a year from now, it will then be the $329 Nvidia RTX 3060 that would move up the Steam hardware survey table and reportedly not the more expensive $1,500 Nvidia RTX 3090.

Unfortunately, it looks like the upcoming RTX 3060 could have a potential to disappoint gamers. The very first indication comes directly from Nvidia itself in the form of a particular benchmark graph that included the RTX 3060 section of its already known CES stream yesterday. This compared the brand new RTX 3060 along with the previous-generation Nvidia RTX 2060.

Only two of the said four game benchmarks are now running in conventional raster mode as in comparison with the ray-tracing as well as Nvidia’s very own DLSS tech running. The reported performance jump for the articulately rasterized games located on the left chart, as well as some of the RT+DLSS titles actually look quite modest.

Digging a little deeper and the reason as to why the upcoming RTX 3060 might be quite less of a leap in comparison to the other members of the said new Ampere range emerge. As for starters, it’s also worth understanding that the upcoming Nvidia RTX 3060 bears just little relation to the said Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti. The brand new RTX 3060 vanilla is also based on what’s seen as a smaller and cheaper GA106 GPU. This is as opposed to the GA104 that was found on the RTX 3060 Ti as well as the Nvidia RTX 3070.

RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 2060 Super

One particularly immediate impact is the seen reduction in memory bus width coming from 256-bit all the way to 192-bit. The 2060, however, was said to be a 192-bit board as well. Instead, it is basically the finer details of the upcoming GPU spec that worry.

The RTX 3060 will have 3,585 CUDA cores all running at a boost clock of a decent 1.78GHz. The RTX 3060 Ti currently has 4,864 cores all running up to a decent 1.67GHZ with an additional 256-bit memory bus. The older RTX 2060 actually has a whopping 1,920 cores all up to 1.68GHz, while the said Nvidia RTX 2060 Super would have 2,176 cores all running up to 1,650MHz, as shown on the Nvidia official website.
