The ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti STRIX uses the same cooler as the RTX 3090 STRIX. This makes it the coolest card by far at only 58°C under full load. We were also impressed by the noise levels of the quiet BIOS, which is just the flick of a switch away because of dual-BIOS capability.

Cooler seems to be waaaay overkill, I'd prefer a dual fan cooler with a smaller footprint for 3060 Ti.

$500 seems a little too much when you can have 3070 for the same price..

GA104 really don't need massive cooling solutions like GA102 does.. or AMD 6800 series for that matter

Perf/watt is amazign. Hoping they produce enough of these to relieve pressure off of 3080's and 6800's.

With all the AIB cards 100 or more above reference MSRP it makes me think both companies are lying about true MSRP. Looks like i might stick with this 1080Ti awhile longer.

The GPU VRM is using the Texas Instruments 95481R DrMOS while the memory is using the On Semiconductor NCP303151. You put it as the other way around in the review.

"Dimensions of the card are 32 x 14.5 cm, and it weights 1828 grams."

Damn! :D This must be the first xx60 series 4 pounder! Impressive in its own right no doubt, but I feel compelled to agree that the price hike that comes with it just makes it not worth it...

Typo also in conclusion 3070 Ti and ... At only 58°C, which is a huge increase over the 73°C of the Founders Edition

I'll wait for the RX 6700XT and 6700 GPUs which are meant to go up against this 3060Ti.
The 3060Ti doesn't have enough VRam.

Well, by the looks of it, you'll wait at least a year! :D But then again, "just wait" has always been the motto of AMD buyers...

Are there really people that just buys amd? I find it very hard to believe.

According to a few popular Youtubers Red Gaming Tech and Moors Law is Dead, Q1 2021 is when we expect the RX 6700 & 6700XT to combat the RTX 3060Ti and RTX 3060. So we will see what happens.

Are there really people that just buys amd? I find it very hard to believe.
Yes there's people that only buy AMD and people that only buy Intel/Nvidia.
We are talking about in the Millions of People.

CPU wise, I always try to buy the best for the money i have, (Athlon XP 1800+, Athlon 64 3000+, Core 2 Duo E7300, Core I5 2500k, Ryzen 5 2400G).
GPU wise i did the same, until nvidia started charged their tax(kind of like apple tax). (Geforce 2 MX400, Geforce 4 MX440, Geforce FX5700 Ultra, Geforce 6800GS, Radeon HD4870, Radeon HD7870, Radeon R9 280X, Radeon RX 580)

The RTX 3060 i think will be fine with 8GB, the one i'm waiting for is the $200 - $250 gpu.

The $200-$250 midrange is gone. It seems like fab tax has already kicked in, a while a go.

Yeah, i'm afraid so. The x60 gpu used to be there. I guess now i hope the 3050(ti) or amd equivalent can be at least on par with the RX 5700 XT (That would be a 2X increase over my current gpu).

It's so sad. I used to buy SLI 460's and 660's that cost 50% of high end and deliver > perf. Never again.
