Just as the end of the year is approaching, Nvidia has introduced its fourth RTX 30 series card for your review this holiday season. The RTX 3060 Ti is the most affordable entry to its Ampere-powered generation of GPUs, bringing with it the software enhancements that have made Nvidia’s hardware so tempting.
Nvidia not only positions the RTX 3060 Ti as the perfect companion for 1080p and 1440p high frame rate games, but also a decent upgrade for everyone on the latest generation RTX 2060. This latest GPU is expected to deliver performance on par or better than the RTX 2080 Super, making the RTX 2080 Ti the only 20-series card that can still beat it in most traditional workloads.
That makes the $ 399 price point more enticing, especially when you consider that it̵
The RTX 3060 Ti has the same 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM as the RTX 3070, but comes with slightly fewer CUDA and Tensor cores. Like most of Nvidia’s modern GPUs, it will support proprietary software enhancements such as Deep-Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), RTX Voice, Nvidia Reflex and more.
RTX 3060 Ti is out tomorrow, December 2nd. The launches of both the RTX 3080 and 3070 have been plagued with low storage and scalping issues, and the lower price of Nvidia’s latest card will probably only entice this practice further.
