Nvidia unveiled a host of new products and features at its virtual CES keynote this year, including a new desktop GPU in the company’s growing portfolio of 30 Series cards. Also on offer were a new set of mobile 30 Series GPUs, as well as new monitors from Acer, AOC, and Asus that feature Nvidia’s Reflex Latency Analyzer (RLA), built for the aspiring esports pro in all of us.

The $329 Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 will utilize 12GB of GDDR6 memory, has a 192-bit memory interface, and will feature 13 shader-TFLOPS, 25 RT-TFLOPS, and 101 Tensor-TFLOPS. These are the only confirmed specs we’ve seen so far, though it stands to reason that Nvidia will release more details about the RTX 3060 as we approach launch in late February. But until then here’s a brief comparison of how the new card will stack up against the current crop of midrange options:

The company also took time during its CES presentation to reiterate some of what we already know, namely that the company’s new Reflex feature has been added to more esports-focused gaming monitors from Asus and Acer, due out later this year.

The feature is a must-have in my book for anyone who plays competitive games online, which is probably why Nvidia made sure to pair the monitor announcement with the debut of Reflex in two of the games that can utilize it best: Overwatch and Rainbow Six: Siege. (As someone who has tried to climb the competitive ladders of both games, I’ll take any help I can get!)

Finally, Nvidia spoke a bit about RTX (it was an Nvidia presentation after all), taking care to mention that 35 titles now support ray-tracing in some capacity, and major games like Call of Duty: Warzone will have DLSS added to their war chest of performance enhancements as of today’s announcement.

Nvidia had a spectacular year in 2020, releasing hit after hit in the 30 Series. We don’t expect the RTX 3060 to be any different if the trend continues in the direction it has since we first reviewed the RTX 3080 Founders Edition.
