How is GeForce RTX 3060 doing in reviews?

We can point to the infamous results from 3DMark tests, where the RTX 3060 failed to beat even the RTX 2060 Super model, while the tests in Ashes of the Singularity looked very good. Until the last moment, we were kept in uncertainty about what real performance this card would offer at all. The theoretical one is very decent, but in FP32 the RTX 3060 offers us up to 12.8 TFLOPS thanks to its 3584 CUDA cores, which is a performance somewhere between the RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2080 Ti cards. However, TFLOPS are not everything and they also need to be transformed into FPS, as far as games are concerned.

The GeForce RTX 3060 is the new weakest card in the Ampere family, which, according to unwarranted information, was originally supposed to carry a full-featured GA106 GPU with 3840 CUDA cores, but will eventually offer 3584. You can imagine that NVIDIA could even worse pieces of GA106 will be used for the 6GB model RTX 3060 and / or the new RTX 3050 (Ti).

In any case, we will have a total of 28 SM units, ie almost three times less than on the GeForce RTX 3090, and the equipment of 28 RT cores and 112 Tensor cores will correspond to this. NVIDIA has also opted here for a larger range of beats, which in the case of other Ampere do not go below 1400 MHz and, conversely, above 1730 MHz. In the case of the RTX 3060, it is 1320 to 1780 MHz, however, it will depend more on the card manufacturer itself, while NVIDIA will not prepare its Founders Edition itself.

The 12GB GDDR6X memory on the 192-bit 336GB / s bus looks a little strange here, and NVIDIA chose this capability probably because its card doesn’t look like a poor relative to the Radeon RX 5700 XT (also 12GB). because 6GB could really be low in some titles, so the performance of the card would then be throttled. However, as indicated above, the launch of the 6GB version is not excluded, but it has not yet been confirmed.

So how is the RTX 3060 doing in the reviews? It should be noted in advance that only non-reference versions have been tested, the results of which may vary. On the performance of the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming OC was slightly below the RTX 2070 Super, although sometimes it did not even reach the RX 5700 and in the case techPowerUp server reviews The GeForce RTX 3060 in various resolutions on an overall scale is essentially similar to the Radeon RX 5700 XT card, ie in terms of the better overclocked versions. In its basic form, it is a card whose performance is a hair above the GeForce RTX 2070 model.
