    In a parallel universe where crypto currency is none existent this card would be quite a good one for many Pascal users who have been waiting long.

    It will be an extremely underwhelming card if it's not at MSRP.

    Nope I did not miss this;)
    The problem we are having here still the rest of the Ampere family still overpriced as hell.
    So there is not a chance you can have these cards at MSRP not even close to that.
    Also the nerfed RTX 3060 still can do roughly $7/day...

    So I cannot foresee a nice and cheap future for these 3060 cards :(

    Is there any indication of what the MRSP is supposed to be? I've even forgotten what the 3060ti MRSP was supposed to be as prices are so high. Was that $399? So this should be $300 or a bit higher.

    With the neutering or it for mining, hopefully, and bitcoin currently going down in price, could be some hope. We really need bitcoin to crash through the floor, like it did a long time back in 2018 so people find it unprofitable to mine.

    Do people think there may be an even cheaper 6GB ram version of it on its 192bit bus? 12 seems like overkill for this segment of the market presumably running lower resolutions, 1920 or 2560.

    Are those results quite underwhelming or is it my idea? Can anyone compare that score to 2070 Super / 2080?

    I saw posts expecting 2070S performance. Of course 1 benchmark is not a benchmark and we can't draw conclusion from that, but IF this is the average difference, that means it is just a bit above the 2070. Even in the last gen, which saw lower performance uplifts than the predecessors, the 2060 was able to match the 1080. Now the 3060 would be just above the 2070. That would be a shame regarding its price.

    1080 = 2070 (non Super) = 3060 ... yeah, not buying this one, even at MSRP, makes no sense, very little to no upgrade at all to my 4 year old card.

    I'm already ready to give up on this generation, wait for 4000 series, perhaps by that time mining boom sh** will be over and we only have to deal with random scalpers (which is fine, that always existed in the first few months after a launch)

    3060~299$, 3060ti~399$, 3070~499$, 3080~749$, 3080ti~899$ and 3090~1199$

    Those should be the prices. IF they ain't, I'll buy nothing this generation. The end.

    I'm expecting it to be $900 to $1000 AUD seeing as the 2060 is still sitting at an inflated price of around $800.

    Realistically this thing should be $350 to $450.

    In 2002 the 4600Ti sold for over $AUD 990 (that's over $AUD 1400 adjusted for inflation). The cards are still a lot cheaper than what they used to be.

    Yeah, 3060 Ti seems like a far better choice. Not that it'd be an available choice in the current market situation, but in theory.

    Checking the AotS benchmark page, the score that the 3060 got is around 2070 Super tier (high 6000s at 1080p crazy dx12).
    The 2060 scores (which are what is being compared to the 3060 in the title) seem to be rather unreliable though, in the benchmark page there's several 2060 scores that are comparable to the 2060 Super (high 5000s).

    Apart from the fact that the 4600Ti was the highest end card and these are entry level ones :D But yeah, recently sold my 2060 for more then I payed and felt quite bad about it tbh. I have gone a completely different root until things settle down (if ever)... Mac Mini M1 with Geforce Now for my casual gaming needs is fine... Painfull but fine :D

    For the MSRP, +19% is very underwhelming. Adding the mining tax, it's DOA.
    I don't know why Nvidia keeps insisting on RTX when there is a big market at low/mid end that does not care.
    Bellow 3070 RTX isn't worth enabling, I know I wouldn't. And the DLSS argument, degrading image quality for performance? Nah.
    People still want and would buy faster GTX card. I'm sure allot of 1080/Ti owners are clinging on their GPUs.

    people need cards other than 1080ti.
    no one is born with a 1080ti,you need to buy a card to have one.
    and when this time comes,it's better to have one with mroe features, like dlss,that will greatly,greatly prolong their life.

    if everything was indeed available,buying a 1080ti over a 2070 super would be just dumb.

    The 19% value is misleading, several of the 2060 scores on the AotS benchmark page are unreliable, since they're matching the 2060 Super scores.

    No news, just an Nvidia sponsored advert implying a near 20% performance increase over the counterpart 20xx series card.
