Pros: cooling is good, temps of 73°C is the highest I've seen so far on all my games, my 2060 super can range from 80 to 90 so seeing 70 is stress relief. Its a small sized card so it fits perfect in almost every case. Design is quality. Fans are also super quite.
Cons: Performance isn't much better then a 2060 super. Actually they're pretty even. This card does handle RTX games way better then 2060 super does.
Overall Review: If you got a 2060 super or any 20 series. Don't upgrade, the performance difference isn't much more. Benchmarking on 3DMark about 5 times cause i was in disbelief that the scores where like that based on how its games (it games awesome) , it only has 100 to 200 points gain. This card however does handle RTX way better and smoother then a 2060 super. The cooling is way better then all the cards I've ever owned. If your going from a 1660 and below to a 3060. Definitely worth it. But if you still have a 20 series and looking to upgrade. Look at going towards a 3070 or above or just dont upgrade tell the 40 series makes its debut. The 12GB of Vram you get never reaches that amount on any game even when rtx at max, so you got alot of play room, also can play the card on max graphics setting on all my games so far. Still gotta test Forza Horizon 5 lol. Overall, good card, awesome performance and awesome cooling. Price is still ehhh but gpus are going down so maybe wait a bit. Everything above that was said, was based off my experience playing on a 1080p, 144hz monitor. So if you use a 1440p or 4k. Your usage is definitely gonna vary. Should still work good fantastic for any application you throw at it.
Pros: - Cooler is same as the Zotac 3060 Ti- Great at 1080p- Decent upgrade from a 1660 super
Cons: - On the pricey side.- The overclock version isn't much of an overclock. Boost clock up from 1770 to 1807.
Overall Review: Bought this from Newegg Product Shuffle. Originally concerned about Zotac and build quality, but the card looks/feels great and performs well. The OC version only gives you 30 MHz, but the heatsink has 4 pipes instead of the base model's 3. There is room for more on the overclock. I can live with this card until the supply shortages end and the prices are more reasonable.
Pros: Big upgrade over my old card. I can finally set my quality levels higher in my games.
Cons: Runs a little hot probably needs one more fan.
Overall Review: Hoping to get a couple more for my other machines. Waiting for the next lottery.
Pros: Monitor is 2560x1440. My old 8800GT (192 graphics cores) couldn't manage anywhere near that on the games I play so I had to turn down my game settings and resolution in order to make things playable. With the RTX 3060, I'm using the full 2560x1440 resolution with normal quality settings in everything and I'm using a fraction of the capability of this card. Most of the time I can't even hear the fans.
Overall Review: I'm very pleased with this card and would definitely purchase it again.
Overall Review: This graphics card was a ginormous upgrade from the 1050 ti and it runs perfectly. I honestly cant believe how immaculate my games look with this thing. Packaging was great and delivery was right on time. Zotac also makes an amazing software with this thats easy to use!
Pros: Runs quiet plays 1440 games well dont count on it for 4k gaming
Cons: Not Ehe card I wanted But it was available and im tired at looking at a 5 month old pc with no graphics card
Overall Review: If you want to play games on PC 1080p-1440p this card will get job done
Pros: - A huge upgrade from my last video editing setup. Went from 5hr renders to 10mins with this. - Perfect for my story driven games. Pretty graphics on my QHD monitor. - It was easy to install and set up.
Cons: - Nothing stands out as flawed. - Got it at the best price since launch, which sadly really isn't saying much.
Overall Review: - So far very happy with it. I'm very happy with it!
Pros: Works perfectly for the application I needed it for. Plus since it's a small card it can fit in any case compared to the triple slot fan cards. Performs very well and it's also quiet.
Overall Review: If definitely recommended this if you need a smaller form factor card!
Overall Review: Great product! I purchased this for my son and he is so pleased with it. He said it runs better than when he actually purchased the computer! Thank you Newegg!!
