Just as the end of the year begins, Nvidia has unveiled its fourth RTX 30 series card for your attention this holiday season. The RTX 3060 Ti is the most affordable entry into the Ampere-powered GPU, bringing with it a range of software enhancements that have made Nvidia’s hardware so attractive.
Nvidia positions the RTX 3060 Ti not only as the perfect companion for high-frame gaming at 1080p and 1440p, but also a decent upgrade for each of the latest-generation RTX 2060s. This latest GPU is expected to deliver performance at a level or better than the RTX 2080 Super, making the RTX 2080 Ti the only 20-series card that can still beat it at most traditional loads.
This makes its $ 399 price point more attractive, especially when you consider it to be $ 300 less than the 2080 Super at its starting price. Nvidia drives better performance at home for less with its full range of RTX 30 series and apparently does not differ from this version.
The RTX 3060 Ti has the same 8GB GDDR6 VRAM as the RTX 3070, but comes with slightly fewer CUDA and Tensor cores. Like most modern Nvidia GPUs, it will support its own software enhancements such as Deep-Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), RTX Voice, Nvidia Reflex and more.
The RTX 3060 Ti comes out tomorrow, December 2nd. The launch of the RTX 3080 and 3070 is associated with low inventory and scalping issues, and the lower cost of the latest Nvidia card is likely to entice this practice further.
