Nvidia RTX 3080 and RTX 3060 Ti back in stock at retail price
RTX 3060 Ti. Scan has restocked two of the finest value Nvidia RTX graphics cards in the UK, as Nvidia Founders Edition cards are restocked. The RTX 30-series lineup’s crown jewel, the greatest value option for 1440p and 4K gaming, is now available at a significant discount.
For for £469, you can get an RTX 3070 Founders Edition (UK RRP)
The Founders Edition RTX 3060 Ti retails at £369. (UK RRP)
For the price, both of these GPUs are excellent buys, especially at their initial 2020 prices. If you were dissatisfied with Nvidia’s standard designs in previous generations, don’t be scared off by their Founders Edition products, which are generally smaller and cooler than comparable third-party models.
Let’s take a closer look at the RTX 3060 Ti first. With hardware-accelerated ray tracing and DLSS to enhance frame rates, I’d say this is the greatest 1440p card on the market right now. It can run the latest games at maximum settings and 60 frames per second in the vast majority of cases. If you want to stream or record your gaming, Nvidia’s media encoder is superior to AMD’s, so give it a shot. The RTX 3060 Ti RPS review shows that this card can almost stretch to 4K resolution, and it can even perform well with a high refresh rate 1080p panel when partnered with a powerful CPU.
Another “best value” Nvidia GPU, the RTX 3070 offers comparable performance to the RTX 2080 Ti.
While outperforming that old milestone in titles with RT or based on more recent graphics APIs, such as Battlefield V. (like Vulkan and DX12). When Katharine tested the RPS RTX 3070 at 1440p, she was able to get approximately 60fps at 4K with high settings. The GTX 1080 is around two times as fast as the GTX 1070, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to move up from that card.
Here we go again with our regular cautionary tale. If you’re not in a rush to upgrade, you might want to wait for the next-generation cards to arrive. While I expect the usual reaction to next-generation GPUs (price increases, supply reductions, botting, and other undesirable behaviour) I’m wondering if nature is mending and none of that will happen? However, I think if you’re in the market for a new graphics card right now, you’ll be pleased with a known quantity and a “exit-gpu-stock-free” card later.
Q1: Is the RTX 3060 TI worth it?
The verdict is in at TechRadar HQ. In terms of performance, the Nvidia GeForce 3060 outperforms the RTX 2080 Super at a fraction of the price. It’s the finest graphics card for most people at its price point.
Q2: Which is better, the RTX 3060 or the TI?
Core clock performance for the RTX 3060 is 1,320 MHz, whilst the 3060 Ti has 4,864 cores with a clock speed of 1410 MHz. The RTX 3060 Ti outperforms despite its lower boost clock and smaller VRAM.
Q3: Is the 3060ti capable of running 1440p at 144hz?
The RTX 3060 Ti does great at 1440p, but it struggles at 4K.
Q4: For what 3060 TI is good?
There is no disputing that the RTX 3060 Ti is the winner and best GPU. If you’re playing at 1080p or 1440p, the RTX 3060’s VRAM advantage is insignificant. That the RTX 3060 Ti’s more powerful hardware makes it superior in gaming, and closer to the RTX 3070, is clear to everyone who has tried it.
Q5: What is the price of a 3060 TI?
Many RTX 3060 Ti models are currently on sale at Newegg for less than $600, including the MSI Ventus ($569.99, was $580) and the Gigabyte Gaming OC ($599.99, was $600).
Q6: Do RTX 3060 graphics cards support 4K resolution?
With the RTX 3060 Ti, Shadow of the Tomb Raider can be played at 4K/60fps with both RTX and DLSS turned on, but games like Death Stranding reveal the actual potential of CAS and DLSS when they’re pushed to their pre-tuned boundaries in games like these.
