  • NVIDIA RTX 3060 is Coming February 25th for $329


    NVIDIA announced the RTX 3060 GPU quite awhile ago but we now have a MSRP and a release date.  The card is going to drop on February 25th (one week from today) and will be suggested to be listed at $329.  This card is designed to be a “budget” card in the 3000 series along side the more expensive, and more powerful, 3070, 3080, and 3090 cards.  If you did not know, NVIDIA GPUs currently uses the first two numbers (30) for the series and the last two numbers (60) as essentially a performance mark with the higher number being more powerful.  Also the Ti versions are more capable than the non-Ti versions although are also more expense and the RTX 3060 Ti is already released for $399+ if you can find one.

    While this is great news for gamers who are looking for an exceptionally good budget card, it is not all good news as the GPU shortage has already shown its head for these new cards.  Many stores offering preorders have already raised the prices over 50% of the MSRP and multiple sites have already reported that miners and scalpers are eyeing up the new cards.

    Overall, we are excited to hear about the new cards and truly hope they find themselves in the hands of gamers.  However, it seems like these cards are already destined to fall into the GPU nonsense pit and be a hard to find in the overpriced GPU nightmare like the rest of the 3000 series.  We would recommend preordering a card if you can in order to avoid the nightmare restocking process that is likely to follow.
