Introduced at the CES 2021 event hosted by NVIDIA, the RTX 3060 was highly anticipated. The video card that comes with 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM has the same amount of memory as the RTX 3070. After the reference design was introduced by NVIDIA, many brands presented their own designs. So what do custom designed NVIDIA RTX 3060 cards look like?
While NVIDIA states the reference design is $ 329, custom design cards will be more expensive.

With the introduction of the reference model RTX 3060 with a two-fan design, NVIDIA has focused specifically on the mid-range segment. After NVIDIA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, Evga and Zotac, the brands presented their designs to the players. The RTX 3060, which is expected to hit the market in late February, is expected to be offered by more brands such as Galax and Asus.
The specially designed NVIDIA RTX 3060 cards created by Videocardz are not much different in features from the reference design. While some cards are offered overclocked at the factory, there isn’t much difference in performance at the end of the day. Here the main factors that determine the prices are the aesthetic and thermal design of the cards. Cards with 3 fans or RGB lighting are more expensive than regular cards.
When we talk about the features of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, the most surprising feature of the card was the 12 GB VRAM. The 3584 CUDA core graphics card uses 2nd generation RT and 3rd generation Tensor cores. With a base clock speed of 1.32 GHz, the RTX 3060 can go up to 1.78 GHz on the increased frequency side. The RTX 3060 supports software features such as DLSS 2.0 and NVIDIA Reflex and can make the work of mid-level AMD quite difficult.
In addition to all these applications, the 3584 CUDA core graphics card uses second generation RT and third generation Tensor cores.
