Product Overview

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition is a reference card based on the RTX 3060 Ti GPU. It shares its design with the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 reference cards, all smaller than their higher-powered siblings.
Being a reference card, the Founders Edition RTX 3060 Ti offers the performance of the new Ampere architecture without extra bells and whistles. Traditionally, it also has some additional value attached to it by consumers.
The Ampere architecture features 2nd-gen Ray Tracing Cores and 3rd-gen Tensor Cores and supports GDDR6 graphics memory. The RTX 3060 Ti delivers significant increase in performance over the previous generation GPU while coming at the same retail price.
You can find custom design by popular manufacturers such as ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte and MSI in the Related Products section or via this search link.

Reviewers from gizmodo have found the following***:
The RTX 3060 Ti is excellent for 1080p at the highest graphical setting, but that's it. The GPU takes some big performance hits at 1440p and higher. If you absolutely must have better 4K performance, you might want to consider the 3070, which costs $100 more.

Pros
  • More powerful than the RTX 2080 Ti at 1080p
  • Improved ray tracing and AI performance
Cons
  • More expensive than RTX 3080 Ti

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The GeForce cards aren't really aimed at professional workloads such as CAD/CAM, energy, automobile, or medical applications. This limitation primarily comes from the driver as NVIDIA would ideally want professionals in these fields to use the Quadro lineup. While NVIDIA's new cooling system offers adequate performance to keep the card from throttling, the card itself does tend to get significantly warm under load.

Pros
  • High-contrast IPS panel
  • Decent GPU performance
  • Quiet under load
  • NVMe SSD
Cons
  • High surface temperatures under load

At $399, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti beats the $699 RTX 2080 Super in every test we ran. The new airflow design is able to hit the sweetest thermal spot so far among all of Nvidia's RTX 30 Series cards. This is one of the coolest cards we've run in recent years.

Pros
  • Fantastic performance in 1440p and 4K gaming
  • Excellent overclocking performance
  • Great cooling solution
Cons
  • Price-to-performance ratio could be better

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following***:
The $500 GeForce RTX 3060 Ti features a cut-down version of the $500 RTX 3070's “GA104” GPU, based on the company's new “Ampere” graphics architecture. The card packs roughly 17 percent fewer simultaneous multiprocessors (SMs), a ratio that carries over to the CUDA cores, RT cores, tensor cores, and texture units found within those SMs.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Best-in-class ray tracing and DLSS performance
  • Faster than RTX 3080 Super and RTX 2060 Super
Cons
  • No PCIe 4.0 support
  • No ray tracing or DLSS support

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti brings game-changing 1440p performance to the mid-range market. It should remain a go-to 1440p card for quite a while, considering how both AMD and Nvidia have set their sites on 4K as the new Flagship battleground. This graphics card is around the same price as the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, but is around 35% faster throughout our testing.

Pros
  • Fantastic 1440p performance
  • Great value for money
Cons
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from theverge have found the following***:
The RTX 3060 Ti handles 1440p well, but 4K is definitely more of a struggle. It's just not designed for 4K gaming, and if Assassin's Creed Valhalla can't even come close to 60fps at max settings, then demanding games coming in 2021 and beyond aren't going to fare well either. The $399 card is a bargain given you'd have to shell out $699 or more for this level of performance only a few months ago.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • Decent 1080p gaming performance
  • Decent ray tracing and DLSS performance
  • Good value for money
Cons
  • No 4K support
  • 4K gaming is still a struggle

tomshardware[7]

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti brings the entry price for Ampere GPUs down to $400. It's a reasonably compact card that will fit in most cases, measuring 9.5 inches long. Connectivity consists of the same triple DisplayPort 1.4a outputs and single HDMI 2.1 port.
Find the original article here.
Pros
  • The best price to performance ratio in GPU land
  • Decent overclocking headroom
Cons
  • No 12-pin power connector

We ran the 3060 Ti through a series of synthetic and in-game tests. Every game we tested had its graphics settings maxed out. You can see how it performed in each test below. If accurate, this would make it one of the best options for gamers on a budget looking for ultimate 1080p Ray Tracing performance.

Pros
  • Excellent 1080p Ray Tracing performance
  • Good build quality
Cons
  • No inbuilt benchmark
