NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 non-Ti officially launches on February 25th

NVIDIA has officially confirmed its first GA106 desktop graphics card will launch later this month.

NVIDIA has now confirmed to the press that its next graphics card from the Ampere series will launch in more than two weeks, on February 25th. The date has already been known thanks to the previous leak from Wccftech.

NVIDIA this morning has sent over a quick note revealing the release date for their next GeForce desktop video card, the RTX 3060. The mainstream(ish) video card, previously revealed at CES 2021 with a late February release date, has now been locked in for a launch on February 25th, with prices starting at $329.

Meanwhile, Cowcotland appears to have a confirmation on the review embargo and sale embargo, which apparently do not lift at the same time. At 3 PM Central European Time, NVIDIA will lift the embargo on reviews. The sales of GeForce RTX 300 will begin at 6 PM on the same day, the site reports.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 is a GA106 based upper mid-range model that will retail at 329 USD. The card will offer 3584 CUDA cores alongside 12GB GDDR6 memory, which is more than RTX 3060 Ti (8GB) and even RTX 3080 (10GB). This unusual configuration will compete directly with AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card which is now rumored to launch in March.
