Nvidias latest budget graphics card hits digital store shelves today.
The GeForce RTX 3060 is the little sibling of its RTX 3070, 3080 and 3090 counterparts, but its still a powerful GPU in its own right.
Early reviews all seem to agree: The RTX 3060 is a perfectly fine card at a decent price, but its not as impressive as its more powerful siblings.
The RTX 3060 goes on sale today at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET and if youre looking to score one you should be at your online retailer of choice, refreshing the page, by this time. Its possible some websites could crash, but more likely that bot-equipped scalpers and crypto miners will simply try to scoop all these up before normal gamers can buy one.
Be sure to already be logged in with payment info saved at whichever site you choose.
Note: These sites dont have live product pages yet, so these links will take you to a search at each site that should populate with the GPU when it goes live.
The RTX 3060 features DLSS and Ray-Tracing and has impressive specs for a budget card, including:

  • 3584 CUDA Cores
  • 1.78Ghz boost clock
  • 1.32Ghz base clock
  • 12 GB GDDR6 memory
  • 192-bit memory interface width

Good luck finding one of these today. Its a terrible time to try and find a new GPU as Bitcoin and Ethereum continue to go up with no signs of stopping and crypto-mining is back in fashion something fierce.
