Pros: -Overclocks well -Looks good -DLSS has gotten amazing -theyre actually in stock for reasonable prices. -Over built cooling for a 200w card
Cons: -3 small fans on card so when they need to turn they get pretty loud. -The obviously inflated prices -The RGB is kind of lame, just a big Gigabyte logo. Not exactly a flashy brand I want to light up front and center in my case lol. Only one 8 pin PCIe power connector, limits over clocking and boost clocks
Overall Review: I am very happy with my purchase. My particular card overclock extremely well. I am able to get very close to the performance of the 3070 I sold like a dirty scalper for almost twice what I paid, and suffered a year with a 1060 3gb 😂. I am able to get a stable OC scoring 12403 (my 3070 stock got 12650 stock and didnt really overclock well at all) in time spy using simple config in MSI Afterburner: 104% power, +175mhz offset and an incredible +950 memory offset! This allows me to crank all of the games I play at 1440p with the help of DLSS on quality settings in 1440p and get 90-120 fps (Forza 5 Shadow of the Tomb Raider) and even cyber punk 2077 with cranked details and ray tracing at playable frame rates (consistently above 60) paired with a 12600kf. I cant guarantee other cards will do as well as it is always playing the silicon lottery, but most reviews and posts Ive seen confirm that these gigabyte cards especially are capable of incredible memory overclocks, and pretty decent core overclocks, their most limiting factor being power as my card tops out at 215 watts with just one 8 pin which close to the absolute max and means Im constantly drawing 65-75w from PCI slot on mobo, and 150 from the cable! Wish I could see this card with one more 6 pin but that only comes on the PRO and in this market theyd probably just go ahead and charge you for a 3070 cause it will def get VERY close to, or even 3070 stock performance with just a little more power. I am needing to re-think airflow however, as the card stays under 85 degrees but with overclock applied it sounds like a whiny jet engine doing so currently! I think I have too much exhaust and not enough input in my H510 Flow, so hoping that can be fixed. Would be pretty silly to consider custom water cooling a 60series card that I already spent too much on but them fans!!!!. Id much prefer 2 120mm fans over 3 70s. Smaller fans have that distinct whine when they soon fast that sounds right out of 2004 gaming PCs RGB is fun, but wish the RTX logo lit up, and or something on the backplate besides just the big Gigabyte logo. Id say for most people as of this moment in time, the 6600 is probably a better buy, can find them pretty regularly for sub 350, but if you like ray tracing and are ok with DLSS to help you along this card is not a bad choice. Just have to be willing to pay the NVIDIA tax. Of course if you can keep waiting do it! If you have a 1080, 2060super or above, or 5700XT or above just keep holding out a little longer! You missed your window to sell those for $700 so hold out till intel finally enters the market! Probably wont even buy an intel GPU for at least a few years, but hopefully it helps drop all GPU prices!
Cons: card stopped working in less than 24 hours... probably in my system for maybe an 1-2hrs before the screen went black and system wouldn't turn back on. put in for a replacement hopefully that goes smoothly.
Overall Review: BAD

Pros: -Quiet -Stable -Tons of over clock ability (not that I would do that for warranty reasons) -Only single 8 pin required -Runs cold with the tipple fan
Cons: -Not enough RGB
Overall Review: Runs heavy games like Microsoft Flight Simulator in 1440p on max settings with decent FPS. Fortnite gets over 144 fps in 1440p. If you want to over clock (not that I would do such a thing for warranty reasons) you can get the power factor up to 104 and the memory clocks really high. Its a super stable card that runs cold and pretty quiet. Paired with a high end CPU it will play any game on the market in 1440p with decent fps.
Pros: Small but long . 1 8pin for power
Cons: LHR an very minimal LED ' s wish they had more on it to go with my pc build
Overall Review: Did not expect this card to be thin an only 1 8pin for power. The card is pleasing to look at but no over the top LED which i kind of wish they did
Pros: Card arrived as described. Card is quite light in weight compared to old Msi dual fan 1070. Good card for 1080p. Rivertuner shows card is pulling rated 220-230watts under full load Light enough dont need a support on end of Gpu.
Cons: Cooling setup is ok for 3 fans. Fiqured it would be hardly breaking 60c but under full load it will run up to 70c+ which I suppose is in spec but I just run a more aggressive fan curve. But considering how light the card weights its likely cut back in cooling or has trimmed heat pipes instead of a nice solid plate against Gpu like the 1070 has. I get 11565 in timespy. Seems average. See some reviews of the card running over 12000 in timespy maybe its likely better cooling solutions allowing higher boost clocks. Also dont like. (other 3060ti cards likely setup like this too) should have been another 8 pin for power instead of pulling near 60watts from the pci-e slot. Thats probably in spec but that kind of power should be pulled from power supply directly.
Overall Review: Overall its good enough for 1080p. Do not recommend for 1440p. Not enough core power for that resolution. I get 11565 in timespy in stock form. Seems average. See some reviews of the card running over 12000 in timespy maybe its likely better cooling solutions allowing higher boost clocks.
Pros: Very responsive GPU and fun
Overall Review: So far work with everything I throw at it. A fast GPU that will give you hours of fun. quite a high bench mark easy to install.
Pros: Easy to install Great value Reliable
Overall Review: I've always been a fan of NVIDIA graphics cards. Gigabyte does a nice job packaging this GPU. This was easily installed on my ASUS ROG STRIX B350-F Gaming motherboard without issue.
Pros: Works great, good build quality and performance.
Cons: Just a little on the pricey side.
Overall Review: If you can't find a cheaper one it's awesome. It's a great improvement over my GTX 970.
Pros: It is a fairly quiet card that runs reasonably (not astoundingly) cool. It slotted right in with no issues - very reliable card. Probably doesn't need all three fans tbh, but I've had fans die on me in other cards and a little redundancy is good. I'm happy there were no problems and it works exactly as it should.
Cons: Not really any cons. The card has three fans and obviously is a little longer than a 2-fan card, but that isn't a con, it's just a natural tradeoff and worth it to me since space is not an issue with my setup. Just check your case to make sure it will fit (it should, it's not super long or anything).
Overall Review: I like it and recommend it if you want a 3060 ti that does what a 3060 ti should. As with all such cards (and not specific to this one), I highly recommend you adjust your settings to get this to run with less power than out of the box to save on watts. Make sure you give it breathing room.
Pros: -first gigabyte card ive had with quiet fans. -great thermals
Overall Review: great card for the price
