How well can the GeForce RTX 3060 run games
14 Jun 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3060 will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce RTX 3060 get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. The GeForce RTX 3060 can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 981 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce RTX 3060 performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 1249 FPS, Medium: 984 FPS, High: 662 FPS and Ultra: 473 FPS. We proceeded to look at GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- to see how that compared and saw that it returned a strong 189 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce RTX 3060 by playing Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis which yielded a strong performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 952FPS, M: 750FPS, H: 505FPS, U: 361FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- and that was strong. This graphics card delivered 144 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Battlefield 6 which is predicted to get reasonable results with a 58FPS on Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce RTX 3060 we get the impression that it is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3060 in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3060? A suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce RTX 3060 is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which is 22% more powerful and can run 998 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce RTX 3060 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 3060 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture.


Architecture
It equips a cut-down Ampere GPU Codenamed GA106 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides next-gen consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.


Performance


Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 suggests it will be as fast as the Nvidia RTX 2070, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 3060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
