The RTX 3060 is Nvidia’s latest 3000 series GPU. Even if it (ever…) comes into stock at $330 USD, it will struggle to match the groundbreaking 3060 Ti in terms of value for money. Nvidia’s new Ampere architecture, which supersedes Turing, offers both improved power efficiency and performance. The 3060 features 3,584 CUDA cores, 112 Tensor cores, it has a boost clock of 1.78 GHz, 12 GB of memory and a power draw of just 170 W. The 3060 offers similar performance to the previous generation’s 2060 Super at an 18% MSRP discount. Given the widespread issues AMD users are facing with 5000 series GPUs (blue/black screens etc.), AMD’s 6000 series GPU’s will have to see substantial price cuts and a huge marketing effort in order to gain any traction. Meanwhile PC gamers can look forward to an unparalleled gaming experience in class leading titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. At ultra settings, with ray tracing enabled, Cyberpunk 2077 redefines the boundaries of immersive gaming. It makes GTA5 look like Tetris in comparison. The combination of RTX+DLSS delivers stunning graphics that are several tiers higher than both AMD's best discrete GPUs and the upcoming consoles. In terms of real world performance, Nvidia’s 3000 series has more or less put AMD’s Radeon group in checkmate. Nonetheless, AMD’s marketers are capable of delivering elaborate BS albeit whilst struggling to keep a straight face. Their marketing infrastructure outsold Intel in the CPU market despite a 15% performance deficit. Without an appropriate social media marketing strategy, Nvidia will probably lose considerable market share, for all the wrong reasons. [Feb '21 GPUPro]

The RX 6600-XT is AMD's best value for money 6000 series GPU. It features 2048 shader units, a boost frequency of 2539 MHz, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 160W TDP. It also has 32 ray accelerators so ray tracing can be turned on for better lighting and reflections but at a significant cost to FPS. It does not feature an equivalent to NVIDIA’s hardware based DLSS solution which results in higher frame rates and image quality for supported games. Entry models have a suggested price of $380 USD, however street prices are around $600 USD. Nvidia’s 3060-Ti only headlines around 20% faster than the 6600-XT whilst street prices for the 3060-Ti are around 100% higher. Many experienced users simply have no interest in buying AMD cards, regardless of price. The combined market share for all of AMD’s RX 5000 and 6000 GPUs amongst PC gamers (Steam stats) is just 2.12% whilst Nvidia’s RTX 2060 alone accounts for 5.03%. AMD's Neanderthal marketing tactics seem to have come back to haunt them. Their brazen domination of social media platforms including youtube and reddit resulted in millions of users purchasing sub standard products. Experienced gamers know all too well that high average fps are worthless when they are accompanied with stutters, random crashes, excessive noise and a limited feature set. [Jan '22 GPUPro]
