Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 3060 graphics card still has only an official release date “end of February” at the time of writing, but a new report from WccfTech suggests that Thursday 25 February will be the day it is actually sold. Admittedly, WccfTech does not state the source of this particular date, so anything could be a lot of hogwash. But when it comes to other rumors that have been circulating on the internet lately (and the fact that almost all of Nvidia’s previous RTX 30 cards have been released on a Thursday as well), it can only be a truth.
At the end of January, for example, Videocardz should have obtained Nvidia̵
As such, there is still a possibility that February 25 is not the right release date after all – even though we are already almost halfway through February, and I have not heard either hide or hair when rehearsals come, yet the window somewhere between Monday 22 February and Friday 26. February seems anything but safe. Given how quickly the rest of Nvidia’s RTX 30 family was intercepted at launch, we can probably also expect that the stock level of the RTX 3060 will last for a full 20 seconds before also disappearing into a puff of smoke for the next several months, but I will of course tell you that it’s right on the sale date as soon as Nvidia comes to announce it.
The RTX 3060 is set to be the cheapest RTX 30 card yet from Nvidia’s next-generation Ampere family of beam-tracking GPUs, with prices starting at £ 299 / $ 329. It comes with 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM (which is actually more than 8 GB you get on the more powerful RTX 3060 Ti on RTX 3070), 3584 CUDA cores (down from 4864 on RTX 3060 Ti), and a base clock speed of 1320MHz (also down from 1410MHz on Ti). Unlike the rest of Nvidia’s RTX 30 family, however, there will be no Founders Edition of the RTX 3060 available when it finally launches – so you have to choose from one of the many third-party models that will be sold if you decide to give it a try. to get one.
