According to last year’s information, the GeForce RTX 3060 was to be released in January. Nvidia seems to have met the same as AMD and the graphics card manufacturers themselves: Limited transport capacity limiting component supplies, US political-economic disputes with China, which led to the end of tariff exemptions (everything traveling between the two countries will be more expensive), and finally the expected problems with insufficient memory production capacity. There is more, but we have already addressed the individual issues, so it makes no sense to blur again. As a result, both AMD and Nvidia have postponed the release of some products.
GeForce RTX 3060 was only announced. With parameters, approximate release date, indicative performance position and price.

While previous information leaks about the GeForce RTX 3060 featured 3840 stream processors, 120 texturing units, 120 RT cores (and so on), Nvidia presents official specifications with 3584 stream processors, 112 texturing units (…) that match the card’s parameters. which has so far been referred to as the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. It is therefore possible that Nvidia has decided to simplify the offer and instead of three models (RTX 3050 Ti with 6 GB and 3584 SP, RTX 3060 with 6 GB and 3840 SP and RTX 3060 with 12 GB and 3840 SP) only two will be created, the RTX 3050 Those with 6 GB and RTX 3060 with 12 GB and 3584 SP. But we’ll see – but the fact remains that the final GeForce RTX 3060 carries 3584 stream processors, not 3840.
As you can see from the parameters, Nvidia has announced a 12GB version of the GeForce RTX 3060. Paradoxically, this card offers higher capacity than the GeForce RTX 3080 (10 GB), GeForce RTX 3070 (8 GB) and GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (8 GB). Its memory is also faster (16GHz) than the memory used on the GeForce RTX 3070 and 3060 Ti (14GHz). On the one hand, it can be a plus for the customer. On the other hand (with the current problematic availability of GDDR6) it is understandable that with 50% higher memory consumption of GeForce RTX 3060 compared to GeForce RTX 3070, the graphics card manufacturer will prefer to use 24 GB of memory in stock for production. three GeForce RTX 3070 with a suggested retail price of $ 399 ($ 1197 total) than for production two GeForce RTX 3060 with a suggested retail price of $ 329 ($ 658 total). That is, at least in those cases where the manufacturer secures the memory himself and does not buy it in sets with GPUs from Nvidia.
According to a graph from Nvidia, the GeForce RTX 3060 should achieve an average performance of 24% above the GeForce RTX 2060. Excluding raytracing, the Radeon RX 5700 XT is 24% above the GeForce RTX 2060:
The GeForce RTX 3060, rather than the performance shift provided by the GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3080, will offer a price / performance advantage (the Radeon RX 5700 XT was released for $ 399 in 2019). So at least when considering the recommended price of $ 329, which, I dare say, on the real market, we won’t see the cards available in stock right away.
Nvidia plans to issue a card at the end of February – a more precise date has yet to be determined.
