The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is a mobile graphics chip by NVIDIA, launched on January 12th, 2021. Built on the 8 nm process, and based on the GA106 graphics processor, the chip supports DirectX 12 Ultimate. This ensures that all modern games will run on GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q. Additionally, the DirectX 12 Ultimate capability guarantees support for hardware-raytracing, variable-rate shading and more, in upcoming video games. The GA106 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 276 mm² and 13,250 million transistors. It features 3840 shading units, 120 texture mapping units, and 48 ROPs. Also included are 120 tensor cores which help improve the speed of machine learning applications. The card also has 30 raytracing acceleration cores. NVIDIA has paired 6 GB GDDR6 memory with the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q, which are connected using a 192-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 817 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1282 MHz, memory is running at 1500 MHz (12 Gbps effective).
Its power draw is rated at 60 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Rather it is intended for use in laptop/notebooks and will use the output of the host mobile device. GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 4.0 x16 interface.
