NVIDIA has officially announced the GeForce RTX 3060. As hinted by previous rumors, the standard, non-Titanium variant features 3,584 CUDA Cores, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory bus, and a boost/base clock of 1.78/1.32 GHz.

“Enter the GeForce RTX 3060, a $329 upgrade launching late February that brings the power of Ampere, our 2nd Generation RTX architecture, to every gamer,” NVIDIA wrote. “With it, you get twice the raster performance and 10x the ray tracing performance of the GeForce GTX 1060 – a massive increase.”

“The GeForce RTX 3060 is built with a 192-bit bus, which allows us to equip this latest addition to the 3060 family with 12 GB of fast GDDR6 memory. The 12GB of faster GDDR6 also makes it a great choice for creators working with large datasets, models, and detailed scenes.”

NVIDIA has shared a chart that compares the new GeForce RTX 3060 to its predecessors, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce GTX 1060. Thanks to DLSS, the Ampere card is able to hit 60 FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 and Watch Dogs: Legion with ray tracing enabled in 1080p.
