Nvidia CES 2021 – GeForce RTX 3060
The RTX 3060 will cost you $ 329, making it significantly cheaper than the RTX 3060 Ti ($ 399) or the much more powerful 30-series GPUs, the top of which (the RTX 3090) goes for $ 1,499.
Using Nvidia’s Ampere architecture, the RTX 3060 has 12 GB of GDDR6 memory with 13 Shader TFLOPS, 25 RT TFLOPS and 101 Tensor TFLOPS. For $ 329, the RTX 3060 should allow price-conscious PC gamers to build a rig that competes with or possibly even beats the PS5 or Xbox Series X for about the same price.
