Enjoy high frame rates with your favorite games and accelerate content creation with the Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 ELITE 12G Graphics Card. Based on the Ampere architecture, this graphics card is designed to provide improved performance compared to its Turing-based predecessor to handle the demands of 1440p games while delivering features such as real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and more for realistic visual effects. These technologies, driven by 3584 CUDA cores with an up to 1.78 GHz boosted clock speed, 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and a 192-bit memory interface, also accelerate supported photo and video editing applications in addition to enhancing live stream broadcasts and other compatible apps.
The AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 ELITE 12G stays cool with WINDFORCE 3X technology, which includes three 80mm fans that spin in alternating directions to increase air pressure and help maintain optimal temperatures when games become intense. Five composite heat pipes efficiently dissipate heat from the GPU's extended heatsink while features such as 3D Active Fan provide semi-passive cooling by turning the fans off when the demands are low to cut down system noise. The customizable RGB FUSION 2.0 lighting complements the graphics card's Neonpunk aesthetic design and can be synced with compatible peripherals for dazzling effects.
The Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 ELITE 12G Graphics Card features 3584 CUDA cores with a base clock speed of 1.32 GHz that can be boosted up to 1.78 GHz to deliver high performance and visual details. It also has 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM with a 192-bit memory bus and 16 Gb/s memory speed. This graphics card installs into an available PCIe 4.0 x16 slot.
NVIDIA Ampere is the 2nd generation RTX architecture. It features up to twice the FP32 throughput, 2nd Gen RT Core throughput, and 3rd Gen Tensor Core throughput of the previous generation. It also features a Samsung 8N custom process and utilizes GDDR6 VRAM.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination.
NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is AI rendering that boosts frame rates while still providing optimal image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor Cores on the GeForce RTX platform. This gives you the performance you need to maximize ray tracing settings and resolutions for an immersive visual experience.
Utilizing three 80mm 3D-striped triangular-edged fans that spin in alternating directions to maximize air pressure, the WINDFORCE 3X cooling system is designed to maintain optimal temperatures during extensive gaming sessions. Its five composite copper heat pipes are designed to ensure maximum contact with the GPU and dissipate heat along the entire length of the extended heatsink. With 3D Active Fan technology, the fans turn off during low loads to provide semi-passive cooling that significantly reduces system noise.
Fully customize your RGB FUSION 2.0 lighting with a variety of effects, featuring 16.7 million colors that sync with compatible peripherals to match your mood, game, or style.
The Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 ELITE 12G includes two DisplayPort 1.4a outputs and two HDMI 2.1 ports. It supports a maximum digital resolution of 7680 x 4320.
The HDMI 2.1 interface provides increased bandwidth, allowing a single cable to output to 4K HDR TVs at 120 Hz for smooth, high-resolution gaming.
