NVIDIA’s new RTX 3060 graphics card will go on sale at the end of February at a suggested retail price of € 339, while laptops with the RTX 30 graphics card will be available in January.
NVIDIA has unveiled new graphics cards for both laptops and desktops today at the CES 2021 virtual fair. The new RTX 30 series graphics cards are naturally based on the Ampere architecture.
NVIDIA’s new addition to the desktop is, as expected, the GeForce RTX 3060. So far, there is no certainty as to whether the model is based on the speculated GA106 graphics chip or the further cut GA104. As a result, some of the technical details are still obscured. According to NVIDIA, the RTX 3060 features 3,584 CUDA cores and a 192-bit memory controller with an extension of 12GB of GDDR6 memory. The basic and Boost clock frequencies of the graphics circuit are 1.32 and 1.78 GHz. The TDP value of the video card is 170 watts.
GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards will go on sale at the end of February and its recommended price in Finland is 339 euros.
On the notebook side, NVIDIA released three or six new models at a time, depending on the calculation method. At this point, the mobile side of the GeForce RTX 30 series includes the RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060, as well as a separate Max-Q version with lower power consumption. Unfortunately, like the desktop version of the RTX 3060, NVIDIA did not disclose all the technical details of its new mobile video drivers.
The Mobile version of the GeForce RTX 3080 is based on the GA104 graphics chip and features 6,144 CUDA cores and a 256-bit memory controller. The graphics circuit has a Boost clock frequency of a minimum of 1245 and a maximum of 1710 MHz. The memory bus extension is 8 or 16 GB of GDDR6 memory. The minimum TDP value is set at 80 watts and the maximum is not specified at 150+ watts.
The GeForce RTX 3070 is also based on the GA104 graphics chip, but uses only 5120 CUDA cores and a 256-bit persistent memory bus. The graphics circuit’s Boost clock frequencies are a minimum of 1290 and a maximum of 1620 MHz when the TDP value limits are 80 to 125 watts. The RTX 3070 is supported by 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
The Mobile version of the RTX 3060, like the desktop model, is based on either the GA104 graphics chip, which has been further cut, or the speculated GA106 graphics chip. It features 3840 CUDA cores and a 192-bit memory controller with an extension of 6GB of GDDR6 memory. The graphics circuit has a Boost clock frequency of a minimum of 1283 and a maximum of 1703 MHz when the TDP value can be set from 60 to 115 watts.
With the new GeForce RTX 30 series, new and updated technologies were also introduced to the laptops. NVIDIA’s new mobile graphics cards support PCI Express 4.0, Resizable BAR, and updated WhisperMode 2.0 and Dynamic Boost 2.0 technologies, among others.
Dynamic Boost 2.0 technology leverages an artificial intelligence network to manage the power budget of the graphics chip, graphics card memory, and portable processor so that the best possible performance is continuously squeezed from the assembly. WhisperMode 2.0, in turn, controls the laptop fan profiles under the control of an artificial intelligence network to optimize temperature and cooling volume in real time.
The GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards will arrive on laptops starting January 26th. In addition to gaming laptops, new Studio laptops are also promised for productive work.
