Nvidia reportedly revealed the official release date of the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards to manufacturing partners.
The date indicated, according to alleged information, is February 25, when the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will be available for sale.
Nvidia will release its RTX 3060 graphics card on February 25, a GPU using GA106 silicon with 3584 CUDA cores. This mid-range model uses 12GB of GDDR6 memory, more memory than the 8GB of VRAM in the RTX 3060 Ti and the 10GB of memory in the RTX 3080.
The RTX 3060 debuted in the notebook segment and now they are going to make the leap towards PC computers. Although the laptop version has a higher number of CUDA cores (3840), the amount of memory is 6GB.
With a release date so close, we may see some benchmarks sooner rather than later before launch. On the EtherMining subreddit, it seems that this graphics card is already in the hands of some miners, such as the RTX 3060 Eagle OC model from Gigabyte.
According to the information of the user who already has it, some stores are selling these graphics cards two weeks in advance, probably, to the miners. The GeForce RTX 3060 will be priced at around $ 329 and retailers are expected to be able to offer prices close to MSRP at least at launch.
We just hope there is enough stock for everyone interested in this graphics card. We will keep you informed.
