UPDATE: Nvidia RTX 3060 Graphics Cards are available now in NZ!
Via Nvidia: “There’s unstoppable momentum behind ray tracing, which has quickly redefined the new standard of gaming,” said Matt Wuebbling, vice president of global GeForce marketing at NVIDIA. “The NVIDIA Ampere architecture has been our fastest selling ever, and the RTX 3060 brings the strengths of the RTX 30 Series to millions more gamers everywhere.”
Along with all the benifits that come with the RTX 30 series in general, a new gaming technology named "Resizable BAR" will be supported on the GeForce RTX 30 Series starting with the RTX 3060. When combined with a compatible motherboard, this advanced PCI Express technology enables all of the GPU memory to be accessed by the CPU at once, providing a performance boost in many games.
Like all RTX 30 series graphics cards from Nvidia, the RTX 3060 supports a bunch of GeForce gaming tech including the popular NVIDIA DLSS which does amazing work maintaining performance and image quality in games.
NVIDIA DLSS is made possible by dedicated AI processors on GeForce RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores, NVIDIA DLSS boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, crisp game images and gives gamers the performance headroom to maximize ray-tracing settings and increase output resolutions. DLSS is available in more than 25 games currently, turn it on - it's so good!
NVIDIA Broadcast is a suite of audio and video AI enhancements, including virtual backgrounds, motion capture and advanced noise removal, that users can apply to chats, Skype calls and video conferences. Actually pretty impressive, and very good for those who game with clicky keyboards on team comms, or stream gameplay.
With Cyberpunk 2077 now released, and with it looking so good on PC with RTX tech in play, many gamers will be looking at the new RTX 3060 as a potential upgrade for current gaming PC - exciting times ahead!
