ASUS TUF Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 12GB V2 GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX? 3060 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized for reduced turbulence, and a stop mode brings all three fans to a halt at low temps. Beneath, a thick heatsink keeps thermals under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme Technology, and a backplate vent make the TUF a proper powerhouse. For builders looking for a new ?old faithful?, this card has your back.Features- NVIDIA Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors: The building blocks for the world?s fastest, most efficient GPUs, the all-new Ampere SM brings 2X the FP32 throughput and improved power efficiency.- 2nd Generation RT Cores: Experience 2X the throughput of 1st gen RT Cores, plus concurrent RT and shading for a whole new level of ray tracing performance.- 3rd Generation Tensor Cores: Get up to 2X the throughput with structural sparsity and advanced AI algorithms such as DLSS. These cores deliver a massive boost in game performance and all-new AI capabilities.- Axial-tech fan design has been newly tuned with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence.- Dual ball fan bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs.- An all-aluminum shroud and metal backplate enhance durability.- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.TUF ComponentsComponents are selected for TUF Gaming graphics cards based on their durability and performance. In addition to top-shelf chokes and MOSFETs, capacitors that meet military-grade certification make the TUF stand tall amongst the competition. The components are soldered to the PCB using our advanced Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process. Smooth joints on the rear of the PCB and the elimination of human errors ensure each graphics card meets our rigorous specifications. Finally, to ensure flawless performance when it counts, the cards are subjected to a grueling 144-hour validation trial.Axial-tech UpgradesTUF Gaming cards leverage our tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA?s new high-octane design. The fans rely on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types.MaxContactTo get heat up off the die and into the heatsink array, we?ve engaged MaxContact technology to polish the surface of the heat spreader and improve smoothness at the microscopic level. The extra flatness allows for better contact with the die for enhanced thermal transfer.2.7-slot DesignThe heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card?s large, 2.7-slot footprint.
