Inno3D Presents GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB Series, Price Starts at $329

INNO3D announces the GeForce RTX 3060 TWIN X2 / OC and iCHILL X3 RED adds to the RTX 30 Series line-up powered by the advanced NVIDIA Ampere architecture. Founded in 1998 with the vision of developing pioneering computer hardware products on a global scale. Fast forward to the present day, INNO3D is now well-established in the gaming community known for our innovative and daring approach to design and technology. We are Brutal by Nature in everything we do and are 201% committed to you for the best gaming experience in the world.

With its efficient, high-performance architecture and the second generation of NVIDIA RTX, the GeForce RTX 3060 brings amazing hardware ray-tracing capabilities and support for NVIDIA DLSS and other technologies, and is priced starting at $329.Like all RTX 30 Series GPUs, the RTX 3060 supports the trifecta of GeForce gaming innovations: NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex and NVIDIA Broadcast, which accelerate performance and enhance image quality. Together with real-time ray tracing, these technologies are the foundation of the GeForce gaming platform, which brings unparalleled performance and features to games and gamers everywhere.
Inno3D RTX 3060 GPUs
  • RTX 3060 ICHILL X3 RED
  • RTX 3060 TWIN X2 OC
  • RTX 3060 TWIN X2
  • Inno3D iCHILL X3 RED
Like the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, the GeForce RTX 3060 is also equipped with the iCHILL X3 RED cooler. The iCHILL X3 RED lights up red LED without RGB control as it does not require this - the red look gives your PC system a mean devilish theme. It has been a huge hit which has seen many mods seeing pure red. With factory overclocking and armed with a plethora of NVIDIA features such as Ray Tracing Cores and Tensor Cores it allows you to play your top games, annihilate your opponent while also showing off your new system build.

The fan takes DNA from the 9cm triple fan design used by the RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 iCHILL X3 with asymmetrical facia, and with scythe blades to maximise airflow and optimised to operate in low fan speed conditions. The iCHILL X3 RED comes with 6 copper heat pipes with heat pipe length of 1371 mm and total surface area of 832207 mm². For added LED effect we've included two tail fin modules, one with logo and one blank for customization so that you can customize your rig for the perfect IG post.

TWIN X2 / OC Power
The legend continues now also with INNO3D GeForce RTX 3060 with twin 9 cm scythe fan blades and with 4 copper heat pipes for the OC version to keep the card performing at an optimal level, this is especially important when the factory overclocked OC version is tackling the most demanding of games. We know most of INNO3D gamers are very creative with their system build and how they wish to place the card on the motherboard. Some positions play on gravity and the weight of the card may cause unintentional bending adding protection to your gaming weapon so we've added an INNO3D back plate to reinforce the graphics card which allows you to place it in any position without worry.

Years of R&D has allowed INNO3D to make technological advancements, continuously pushing the boundaries and bolster their expertise in the GPU industry. It has elevated INNO3D to a point that makes a difference for high-end gamers and design creation professionals achieving high performance with outstanding temperature control and at super quiet noise levels.

If it actually can be had for that price, great. I mean the 2060 I got for €300 was a good deal. But I assume that price will not be the normal for the card.

Nvidia logic do not make much sense here, 12GB is wasted on this card. They should have made this 8GB and the TI 12GB. Could have saved some $$$ and made the card 249$ - 299$.

$300? Damn. I would get one of those for my other rig for sure. Just to diversify some of the equipment I have.
I suppose this 3060 would be 2080S performance or around?

8GB isn't a choice as this chip has 6 x 32bit memory channels, so it's either 6 or 12GB.
And while it probably doesn't ever need those 12GB, 6GB aren't enough...

What I still can't get is why this card has 12 GB VRAM and the faster Ti only 8. If NV wanted to make cheaper card, 8 GB would be much better. And if this will sit between the 2070 and the 2070S, 8GB would be enough for the performance.

The 3060 Ti has 2080S performance. This will be definitely slower.

How so? 6 GB is plenty enough as this card isn't aimed at 4K or 1440p 144hz+ for newest games. 12 GB does help a lot in rendering environment or other areas where more memory bottlenecks performance from production point of view. While I agree the generations must move on with capacity in memory, it still isn't a dead end for many as we haven't, yet, stepped into the next gen territory where 6 GB is bare minimum. Now if someone is crying about using 1080p GPU with 6 GB incapable of playing games at 1440p maxed out with high FPS then please get a reality check.
