The MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming X Trio uses a huge triple-slot, triple-fan cooler that's much better than any other RTX 3060 we've tested today. Unsurprisingly, temperatures and noise levels in our RTX 3060 Gaming X Trio review are outstanding, with it runing incredibly cool while being whisper-quiet.

LET'S GOOOOOOO. DEPRESSION

three fans? msi really doesn't care. bawls first

nvm. seems to be leading in noise and temps. so gg MSI for three fans.
@Dammeron

MSI and Asus really are pumping out good cards lately (since turing IIRC).
either one of these two always leads in temps, noise and/or power limit/performance.
sapphire seems to have dropped the ball, and evga has the support thing, upgrade path going for itself.

It's not mentioned in the NVIDIA reviewer's guide, so no not enabled yet. If I were NVIDIA I would save this for a boring day to get some extra PR

Isn't the xx60 version of this generation supposed to beat the xx80 version of the previous generation? Nvidia said that RTX 3xxx was going to be such a jump over the previous generation????

I guess that this time around the 3060ti is the real xx60. Ampere jump from xx90 to xx60ti is decent... below that things don't make a lot of sense when you look at the price/perf ratio compared to last gen

"It looks like the RTX 3060 is only marginally faster at RT than Ampere, seems the new RT cores don't make that much of a difference."
W1zz, what kind of sorcery is that?

You saw my explanation for the technical reasons in the conclusion?
Yeah, would either be 6gb or 12gb and 6gb right now would not make sense, I guess 8gb does not make sense either, where is the 16gb? That i wonder. AMD did it right, 16GB memory.

Yeah, I know, for nvidia saving 8gb mmeory that makes another gpu = more profit for them, price would be the same anyway, i mean price sold at market price, not the fake msrp.

Performance gain generation to generation:

GTX 760 -> 960 = +90%
GTX 960 -> 1060 = +72%
GTX 1060-> 2060 = +59%
RTX 2060 ->3060 = +19%

Why no reviewer is calling 3060 for what it really is, a total shitshow even at (non existent) MSRP?!
getting banded,maybe.

This is for sure the most disappointing ampere card so far performance wise and doesn't bode well for lower end cards.... Feel bad for people in the $200-300 bracket.

Yeah, 3060 looks especially bad when you get +50% performance when upgrading from 2070>3070 or 2080>3080, plus, in theory, only +70usd gets you +30% performance with the 3060Ti (compared to only +15% for +100usd 3060Ti vs 3070).

This should have been 279-299usd GPU max. As it is, the only people buying it will be the ones who can't find a 3060Ti in stock.
