The ASUS Phoenix GeForce RTX 3060 is a powerful graphics card built on NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture, which offers significant improvements in performance and power efficiency. The Ampere Streaming Multiprocessors provide twice the FP32 throughput compared to previous generations, resulting in faster and more efficient GPU processing. The 2nd Generation RT Cores enable a 2X increase in ray tracing performance and support concurrent ray tracing and shading for enhanced visual quality.
The card also features 3rd Generation Tensor Cores, which deliver up to 2X higher throughput, incorporating advanced AI algorithms like DLSS for improved gaming performance and AI capabilities. The Axial-tech fan design ensures better cooling by using longer blades and a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure. Dual ball fan bearings enhance the card’s durability, lasting up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs.
ASUS implements Auto-Extreme Technology to enhance the card’s reliability through automation during the manufacturing process. Additionally, a protective backplate is included to prevent PCB flex and trace damage, ensuring the longevity of the graphics card.
The video memory on the card is 12GB of GDDR6, and it operates at a memory speed of 15 Gbps, connected through a 192-bit memory interface. The graphics card supports a maximum resolution of 7680 x 4320 pixels through its digital output ports: one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4a interfaces. It is compatible with HDCP 2.3 for protected content playback.
For proper operation, a recommended power supply unit (PSU) of 650W is required, and the card is powered through a single 8-pin power connector.
