    We're back to NVIDIA, which released the somewhat more mainstream segmented GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The card might hit a sweet spot for up-to WQHD gamers that need a bit more power at a somewhat attract...

    et voilà !

    i think for your cash you get a solid graphics card that offers playable frame rates with Ray Tracing on in every resolution other than 4K. This makes it the current best option for gamers yet to make the jump to UHD.

    I'm so happy for myself to have skipped rtx 2000 but also feel sad for the people who bought them :( the "60" card of this gen is tailing, sometimes surpassing a "80" from the previous gen, even in 4K !!!
    you cannot say Nvidia didn't make a big jump in performance this gen, helped by amd's competition of course, not denying that but still very good news for gamers, if they can buy one, and not for 2x msrp :/

    It's little strange that power consumption of RTX 3060 Ti is higher than RTX 3070. I thought it would be 10% less.

    Just read the review and the card performs very well, between the 2080 and the 2080Ti.

    The only problem is the price. Like Hilbert wrote in the conclusion, this card, and others, should be around 100€ cheaper. 400€ for a 60ti is too much.

    Also, why the hell, every cards has coil whine??? Is this a new trend?

    Great review as always, Hilbert.

    By the way, is not December that time of the year when Santa starts to deliver presents?:D

    This FE model is one of the best looking cards, so sleek.

    Puzzling that the FE card is a lot lower on boost clocks than the other 3 OEM cards tested, by 150-200 or so MHz, but the FE has about the same framerate. Or have I misread it, just given a quick look over so far.

    I wonder why the Asus, MSI and Gigabyte cards are not faster?

    Correct, both are close to each other however as explained in the reviews we moved to a new (far more precise) testing methodology. We'll likely re-test a couple of cards like the 3070 with the new methodology as well. I just need time, the onslaught of GPU reviews keeps on going ...

    I've mentioned quite a number of times that frequency matters less these days, the cards simply run into the power limiter.

    I'd buy one of these right now if I could and sell my 1660 Ti for $200 essentially getting 2080 Super performance for $200! That was my plan all along until Covid came along and screwed everything up :mad:

    Hum first page, i think you meant "2080 Super replacement" and not "3080 super replacement"

    ( "GeForce RTX 3080 (SUPER) performance levels and, in due time, will be its replacement")

    *keep reading*


    I don't remember the 3060 Ti being announced anywhere? Was it? Must have missed it.

    Looks like a great product for people on the fence between expensive PC gaming and next gen consoles?

    ''I have been comparing the performance of the 3070 towards the 2080 Ti. With a TGP of 320W for the 2080 Ti, the 220W for the 3070 is absolutely impressive. That's 100 watts less for more or the same performance levels''.

    2080 Ti is 250W unless you meant after OC but that's different story, also 2080 Ti still wins with 3070 in 4K
    I'm waiting for 3070 Ti 16GB myself :p

    Thanks Hilbert, I am a bit of an old timer to be honest in that regard.

    This looks a good card, as you mentioned it would be very good a bit lower in price. I'm guessing even $399 is going to not be what we see them at though, could be quite a bit higher.

    RGB? what is that? Coil whine is all the rage now.

    Great review Hilbert! RT performance better than 6800/XT with DLSS!

    A really good GPU for FHD and WQHD IF it can be purchased at MSRP or less.

    But it makes the 6800 @ MSRP the next winner for 4K with no RT based on price as well.

    Everything else is way over priced vs performance for what it is.

    Ah thanks, will correct that typo. It's of course 2080. The announcement was today at 3 pm.

    Looks like a good card and makes the 3070 look rather expensive or maybe pointless.....

    Without raytracing, it offers playable frame rates in 4K.
    Since I'm not expecting to take advantage of raytracing for at least another couple years, I'm really curious how AMD intends to respond. If they offer similar non-RT performance for a lower price, that would be really appealing to me.
