NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 available at the end of February (updated)

Published by


February will see the availability of the recently announced GeForce RTX 3060. Sources now claim to have learned the final availability to be in late February.

A precise date is not claimed as typical for NVIDIA, it can shift slightly, but February 28 would be indicated by Wccftech. However, since that is on a Sunday, that's not going to happen. Considering all NVIDIA launches are on a Tuesday or Thursday, it would be far more logical to see either Tuesday the 23rd or Thursday the 25th. The reviews of the cards should also come online around that time, and with confusing seeding dates (19th), all doesn't line up well just yet.

The reference model's suggested retail price is $329. The Word is that there will not be a Founders Edition this round. The more customized cards will likely be more expensive than that $329. Earlier leaked etailer prices have indicated card to become as expensive as a founder edition GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ($399).

Updated: new information now strongly suggests a February 25th release date.

In the CES presentation, you will have spotted a single blower style product, but that one was for illustrative reasons solely, it now seems. The card will be based on an 8nm fabrication APmpere GPU that offers 3584 shader cores, 28 RT Cores, and 112 Tensor Cores, a 1320/1777 MHz GPU and which integrates 12 GB of 192-bit GDDR6 memory.
