The GeForce RTX 3060 is Nvidia’s most recent $330 work area GPU offering that you’re probably not going to find at its recommended retail cost. With numerous things continuing simultaneously: the continuous worldwide pandemic, exchange war, and digital currency mining blast, that is what is happening we wind up in right now.
The main bunch of audits of the RTX 3060 went live around ten days prior, and keeping in mind that we needed to postpone our own, on the in addition to side this permitted us to investigate estimating and post-send off accessibility. Obviously, we have the typical exhibit of benchmarks to go over and we’ll bounce into that in a second.
The RTX 3060 depends on the new GA106 bite the dust which measures 300mm2 and packs 3584 centers, 112 TMUs and 48 ROPs. That is 26% less centers and TMUs than the 3060 Ti form, yet 40% less ROPs because of the downsize from a 256-cycle wide memory transport to 192-digit. Assisting with limiting that decrease is higher timed 15 Gbps GDDR6 memory which gives a pinnacle transfer speed of 360 GB/s, so a 20% decrease from the 3060 Ti.
This change to the memory subsystem implied that Nvidia couldn’t match the RTX 3060 with 8GB of VRAM. The choices were basically 6GB or 12GB. The previous would have been humiliating at this cost and with AMD set to deliver their mid-range leaves behind 12GB, Nvidia had not much of a choice.
It likewise assists them with advertising the RTX 3060 and legitimize the $330 asking cost which sees it come in 18% less expensive than the 3060 Ti regardless of the critical decrease to the center arrangement. On paper, the RTX 3060 doesn’t have all the earmarks of being an extraordinary worth item, accepting all models sold at the MSRP, however we’ll obviously lead a full presentation assessment and afterward work out where it lands as far as cost per outline.
For testing we’re actually involving the Ryzen 9 3950X test framework as we progress on refreshing all that to be tried under the R9 5950X. Expect all that information once we get past this most recent round of item delivers. The test framework is arranged with 32GB of double position, double channel DDR4-3200 CL14 memory.
We will take a gander at the 1080p and 1440p information for about six of the 14 games tried before we bounce into our typical exhibition breakdown diagrams.
Beginning with Watch Dogs Legion at 1080p, we see that the RTX 3060 is really great for only 61 fps by and large, making it somewhat more slow than the past age Radeon 5700 XT. A disheartening outcome to find in a Nvidia supported title. We’re fundamentally taking a gander at RTX 2070-like execution, so $500 GPU execution from 3 quite a while back.
Professional killer’s Creed Valhalla is an AMD supported title and here the 5700 XT is well in front of the RTX 3060 conveying 22% more edges. Once more, the 3060 is similar to the RTX 2070 and 8% more slow than the 2070 Super. Comparative with the 3060 Ti it really does well a 13% deficiency here, however we are just at 1080p.
The edge stays a lot of something very similar at 1440p, where the 3060 was 14% more slow than the 3060 Ti and 15% more slow than the 5700 XT. It matches the vanilla RX 5700 and that implies it’s only a couple of edges quicker than the RTX 2070.
The RTX 3060 like most present day GPUs performs well in Death Stranding at 1080p, hitting 129 fps on normal to match the GTX 1080 Ti and RX 5700. That said it’s 11% more slow than the 5700 XT and 19% more slow than the 3060 Ti.
The 1440p information is for the most part business as usual: 10% more slow than the 5700 XT and presently 20% more slow than the 3060 Ti. It matches the RX 5700 once more, so it was 9% quicker than the RTX 2070.
