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]

Nvidia’s RTX 2060 Super GPU is a refreshed version of their RTX 2060 launched just 10 months prior. With this iteration, NVIDIA are hoping to contest AMD’s recent RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT with a better value proposition than compared to the 2060. The RTX 2060 Super uses the same GPU die as in the 2060, but has extra CUDA cores (increasing from 1920 to 2176) and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory (up from 6 GB), capable of delivering 448 GB/s of memory bandwidth. It has a has a TDP of 175 W, compared to 160 W in the 2060. The RTX 2060S also features Turing NVENC which is far more efficient than CPU encoding and alleviates the need for casual streamers to use a dedicated stream PC. The 15-20% increase in effective speed from the 2060 to 2060 Super costs around $50 on reference price tags. For now Nvidia will retain the "not-Super" RTX 2060 as the most affordable GPU in the ray-tracing 2000 series at $350 USD. [Jul '19 GPUPro]
