MSI has shared its opening volley of GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards, which include models in the GAMING X TRIO, GAMING TRIO, GAMING, and VENTUS lineup. You can check out the table below for the complete specs, but the most powerful SKU appears to be the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X TRIO—it’s got a boost clock of 1.83 GHz (vs. the Founders Edition’s 1.67 GHz) and an updated design, as well as a TRI FROZR 2 cooling system comprising TORX fans. Other features include RGB Mystic Light and a “rigid metal anti-bending strap” to prevent the card from losing its shape.

Pricing appears to be a mystery, but MSI points out that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Series starts at only $399. The GAMING TRIO and VENTUS models will supposedly be available starting tomorrow (December 2, 2020), while the standard GAMING versions won’t be released until later.

Original Press Release

As a leading brand in True Gaming hardware, MSI is proud to share its take on NVIDIA’s all-new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU, with graphics cards that unite the latest in graphics technology, high-performance circuit board design, and advanced cooling.

Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture and the 2nd generation of NVIDIA RTX, the world’s most powerful PC gaming platform for real-time ray tracing and AI, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti delivers blistering 1080p and 1440p gameplay starting at only $399 USD.

The RTX 3060 Ti also supports the trifecta of GeForce gaming innovations too, including performance-accelerating and IQ-enhancing NVIDIA DLSS technology which is now available in over 25 games; NVIDIA Reflex which reduces system latency (‘input lag’), making games more responsive, and giving players in competitive multiplayer titles an extra edge over the opposition; and NVIDIA Broadcast, a suite of audio and video AI enhancements including virtual backgrounds and noise removal that users can apply to chats, Skype calls and video meetings. So whether they’re playing traditional PC titles, powering through creator and productivity workflows, or marveling at the latest cutting-edge ray-traced titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Watch Dogs: Legion, and more, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti delivers the best possible experience in its class for everyone everywhere.

GAMING TRIO Series

GAMING has been refreshed with a new look while maintaining the same great balance between performance, cooling, and low-noise that gamers have come to trust. Leading the updated product series is the new TORX Fan 4.0 design with pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TRI FROZR 2 cooling system. Mystic Light adorns the exterior of the graphics card, illuminating color in synchrony with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link, all controlled with the Dragon Center software utility.

GAMING series

MSI brings GAMING to RTX 3060 Ti with the 8th generation of the iconic TWIN FROZR series too. The improved TWIN FROZR 8 design on the GeForce® RTX 3060 Ti GAMING X utilizes dual TORX 4.0 fans with pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TWIN FROZR 8 cooling system. The heatsink features advanced aero- and thermodynamic technologies for efficient heat dissipation to keep the temperature low and performance high. The new look emphasizes the glorious glow of Mystic Light RGB infused into the card. Using the updated & improved MSI Mystic Light software, controlling and syncing your LED-lit components is easier than ever.

VENTUS Series

The popular VENTUS is revealed in GeForce RTX 3060 Ti as well, enhanced with well-known TORX Fan 3.0 and available in triple and dual fan variants. Whether it’s for work or for play, VENTUS’s performance-focused design maintains the essentials to accomplish any task at hand. A robust cooling system, reinforcing brushed-finish backplate, and rigid industrial aesthetic make this graphics card suitable for any build.

MSI AFTERBURNER

MSI Afterburner is the world’s most recognized and widely used graphics card Overclocking software. It gives you full control of your graphics card and enables you to monitor your system’s key metrics in real-time. Afterburner gives you a free performance boost for a smooth in-game experience thanks to higher FPS.

MSI DRAGON CENTER

MSI Dragon Center is a brand-new software platform with the goal to integrate all MSI software for components, desktops, laptops and peripherals. The all-new software features Gaming Mode, which instantly optimizes your hardware for the best gaming experience including SSD, monitor and network settings.
