Overnight, NVIDIA stealth announced the RTX 3060 Ti (but not without a few leaks). It launches tomorrow globally, but we’re still awaiting local details. When it comes to pricing, it will set you back $399 USD ($541 AUD) for the Founder’s Edition, which doesn’t seem to be coming to Australia, so obviously pricing will be a little bit more for partner cards.
In terms of performance, NVIDIA says that it’s faster than a RTX 2080 SUPER (which was $300 more at launch) and is perfect for 1080p and 1440p gameplay. Just like the rest of NVIDIA’s RTX range, it’ll make use of RTX, DLSS 2.0, NVIDIA Reflex and NVIDIA Broadcast.
In their review, AusGamers said that “The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti presents uncompromised 1440p performance across even the most demanding titles — looking at you Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and your seemingly hard to render Viking beards. Based on these numbers we do see that NVIDIA’s claims of outperforming the RTX 2080 SUPER are pretty much on the money, so to speak.”
It’ll be interesting to see how stock fares for this one. The 3080 has been impossible to get since launch, with the 3070 coming in and out of stock. At $100 USD cheaper than the 3070 and without too much of a performance drop, I suspect this one will also be popular in the leadup to Christmas, and with Cyberpunk 2077 fast approaching.
