With CES earlier this year, NVIDIA unveiled its latest graphics card, with more advanced NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 specifications. More details will be discussed in this article. NVIDIA started the breakthrough in the first quarter of 2021 with the launch of RTX 3060 and RTX 3080TI in the near future.
This is certainly to answer the challenges of the growing market of games that spend large amounts of VRAM. The specifications of NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 are quite special with the lowest RAM variation of 6 GB and the highest 12 GB.
Of course, this will be a competitor to the previous series, the RTX 3080 which has 10 GB of RAM. The RTX 3060 series has another uniqueness with a boost clock that reaches 1.78 GHz and is highest compared to previous RTX series.
Not only that, NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 is also complete with other advantages such as the presence of AI DLSS acceleration. This allows its users to play games with fps to the maximum.
Moreover, with its sophistication you will be able to get a frame rate increase speed of 1.5 times. Especially because the process that uses tensor cores is generally found in the Geforce RTX series. The DLSS AI feature on this graphics card is capable of providing a comfortable gaming experience.
In addition to DLSS AI, NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 is also complete with Ray Tracing. This feature allows maximum light browsing in the display of a game. By using Ray Tracing, a game will appear more alive with reflected light that looks so real and real time. That's why NVIDIA is so proud of the existence of Ray Tracing on the RTX series.

SPECIFICATIONS of NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060
NVIDIA has previously launched the RTX 3060 Ti series. If you are one of the RTX 3060 Ti users, do not rush to immediately update the graphics card to NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 Ti without careful consideration. Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 specification is actually not much different when compared to its predecessor series, rtx 3060 Ti.
The similarities between the two series are pretty much there. Both are ampere-based chipsets. It has the support of technology that is also not much different. Starting from Tensor Cores, DLSS AI, to Ray Tracing Cores third generation that already exist in other RTX series. Display support with maximum resolution both reach 7680x4320. Although they have a lot in common, of course they have their own uniqueness.
RTX 3060 has a boost clock of up to 1.78 GHz. However, the base clock of RTX 3060 is still slower when compensated with RTX 3060 Ti which reaches 1.41 GHz. While the RTX 3060 only reaches 1.32 GHz. For memory specifications, the RTX 3060 has a larger specification with 12 GB GDDR 6. While the RTX 3060 Ti only has a memory specification of 8 GB GDDR 6.
Aside from those three things, there doesn't seem to be a significant enough change in terms of specifications. But for those of you who want to increase the standard memory capacity, NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 is worth considering.
Comparison of NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 Ti Specifications
If you are confused to choose between NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 or RTX 3080, there is no need to worry. Both have performances that are also not much different. After launching RTX 3080 first, this time NVIDIA added its list of graphics card products to the RTX 30 series. Namely RTX 3080 Ti at the end of February.
Although launched at the same time, NVIDIA has not officially disclosed the full RTX 3080 specification. This is in contrast to the 3060 series that has been officially announced on nvidia's website.
Uncertainty about the specifications of the RTX 3080 Ti series caused its fans to wonder. They assume that the RTX 3080 Ti series will have specifications not much different from its predecessor. Namely RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 which are rivals amd Radeon RX 6000 series.
Not without reason, the two companies do have a fairly tight competition between AMD and the RX 6000 series it owns and NVIDIA with rtx 30 series. With the launch of NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 Ti at the same time. It certainly threatens the existence of AMD Radeon RX 6000 series that has been released before.
NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 Price
Geforce RTX 3060 which will be present at the end of February you can have with prices starting from 5,600,000 rupiah (329 USD). It will be the cheapest priced series on nvidia RTX 30 series. With its price and specifications, the RTX 3060 series can be classified into the middle class. But in performance, rtx 3060 is able to beat its predecessor, GTX 1060 with twice the performance.
NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3060 will certainly be the best choice. Especially if the graphics card is obsolete and only able to play games at 30 or 40 fps.
With specifications that are quite good in its class, it offers a price that is also competitive. The RTX 3060 series will answer your pain with the number of new games that will appear in 2021. By updating your graphics card, it's not impossible to play heavier games.
If you want better performance, of course NVIDIA Geforce RTX 3080 Ti can be an option. As we can see that the RTX 3080 series sold for 699 USD, and it looks like the RTX 3080 Ti is priced also not far from its predecessor.
