Igame Geforce Rtx 3060 Ultra W Oc 12g Graphics Card Debut Review


[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel] NVIDIA has improved the RTX 30 series graphics card lineup over the next few years, beginning with the release of the DGX A100 for supercomputing platforms in May 2020 and the GeForce RTX 30 series for gaming platforms in September. Although the last two months of virtual currency madness have made the supply relationship more tense, NVIDIA is still in 2021 to bring gamers “sweet” GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, the official price of 2499 yuan than the previous generation to be a lot of people, graphics card finally unblocked on February 25. core specifications, graphics card built-in 28 groups SMe, each SM built-in 128 CUDA core, a total of 3584 CUDA; graphics card default frequency 1320MHz, maximum acceleration frequency 1777MHz The memory bit width is reduced from 256bit to 192bit, but the capacity is increased to 12GB with a memory frequency of 15Gbps and a bandwidth of 360GB/s.

NVIDIA Ampere Architecture Introduction In addition to redesigned CUDA cores, NVIDIA is also introducing second-generation RT Cores and third-generation Tensor Cores that support both INT32 and FP32 data types of the new ALU. NVIDIA is improving the parallelism between various units within the GPU in the Ampere architecture, allowing the traditional INT/FP compute units, RT Cores, and Tensor Cores to work concurrently to further reduce frame rendering time and improve GPU computing performance.

The second generation RT Cores light tracing cores improve light drawing performance, and the new interpolation algorithm adds new dynamic blur acceleration operations to the GPU, ensuring dynamic blur accuracy and improving real-time ray tracing efficiency, significantly improving light tracing performance. Tensor Cores, the hardware unit responsible for running AI calculations, have also been upgraded to the third generation, streamlining the Tensor Cores cores while also providing two times the power efficiency of the second generation Tensor Cores, allowing AI-based DLSS to stretch screen resolution to 8K. NVIDIA RTX IO functionality requires the use of Microsoft’s DirectStorage API, which is implemented as a plug-in integration with the latter.

This technology allows graphics cards to bypass the CPU and directly read SSD data, reducing CPU usage and eventually commercializing it for game developers to make targeted optimizations. NVIDIA also brings NVIDIA Refiex and NVIDIA Broadcast to gaming and live streaming users. NVIDIA Reflex is comprised of two components: hardware and software.

The hardware component is known as Reflex Latency Analyzer and is pre-installed directly in the monitor to measure the time difference between mouse clicks and screen changes. The NVIDIA Reflex SDK is the software component, which reduces and measures rendering latency and can be integrated directly into games by developers. NVIDIA Broadcast is designed for live broadcasters, and it uses the RTX GPU’s AI computing power to replace or eliminate live backgrounds, reconfigure the camera, and even provide intelligent noise reduction for the microphone to reduce the build of live scenes.

Similarly to the GeForce RTX 30 series, the GeForce RTX 3060 domestic has no public version; players can only purchase the non-public version manufactured by AIC. I received the first test graphics card from Seven Rainbow, an iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra W OC 12G, where “W” stands for White (White) Special Edition, and which uses two 9cm one 8cm wind catcher fans, as well as two 8mm two 6mm heat pipes for graphics card cooling. Seven Rainbow also equipped the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra W OC 12G graphics card with a metal backplate to ensure the stability of the graphics card under high load conditions. The power supply uses dual 8-pin external power supplies, with the PCIe providing 75W of power supply, up to a total of 375W of power supply to ensure the stability of the graphics card under high load conditions.

The one-button overclocking function is located above the output interface, allowing gamers to switch to the high frequency BIOS quickly and easily.

The iGame RTX 3060 Ultra W OC 12G employs the GA104H6 version, which is the same as the GA104 core version. The GPU core is GA106-300-A1, with a default frequency of 1320MHz, a BOOST frequency boost to 1777MHz, and a one-button overclocking frequency of 1822MHz. Samsung single capacity of 2GB, frequency 15Gbps memory, 6 total 12GB; 15Gbps rate and 192bit bit width for the card to bring 360GB/s bandwidth.

Performance Test According to GPU-Z, the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra W OC 12G has a GPU frequency of 1320MHz and a BOOST frequency of 1777MHz, with the BOOST frequency reaching 1822MHz when I press the one-click overclocking button.

Motherboard: iGame Z490 Vulcan X Memory: Seven Rainbow Defender DDR4-3200 8GB*4 Power supply: Xingu Kunlun KL750W Benchmark performance tests are based on 3DMark, testing DX11, DX12 performance, including Time Spy, Fire Strike, and ray tracing performance, and comparing the results of the RTX 3080, 3070, and 3060 Ti.

No Light Chase, DLSS chooses Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Jedi: Battle Royale, Crysis 5, GTA5, The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077, tested at 1080p, 2K, and 4K resolutions, respectively. Cyberpunk 2077 in 2K resolution had a reduced frame rate of 43 fps, but stabilized at around 40 fps. With ray tracing and DLSS enabled, select five games – Tomb Raider: Shadow, Control, Death Stranding, My World, and Cyberpunk 2077 – also in 1080p, 2K, and 4K resolutions, and compare the average frame rates directly. After enabling ray tracing and DLSS, Cyberpunk 2077 reached a smooth 44 fps in 1080P resolution.

The 2K resolution dropped to 34 frames per second, but the frame rate remained stable above 30 frames per second. The frame rate for 4K resolution was only 21 frames per second.

Review Summary: The RTX 3060 should be the most entry-level ray tracing graphics card in the Ampere architecture, in 1080P resolution, regardless of whether to open the light tracing DLSS or not, this iGame GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra W OC 12G graphics card can smoothly play a variety of games; 2K resolution in addition to “Cyberpunk 2077” slightly strained, other games can also be
