To close the CES 2021 news we have the new releases from NVIDIA, this time we have the launch of the GeForce RTX 30 mobile GPU and a new RTX 3060 desktop GPU.
With the new RTX 30 mobile GPUs we have powerful new graphics cards in our mobile devices to run all kinds of games with RTX and DLSS technology. On the other hand, the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card is slightly below the last 3060Ti competing in price and presenting itself as an alternative to the previous 2060 Super.
GeForce RTX 30 for notebooks
The new RTX 30 notebook GPUs come in three different variants, we have the powerful RTX 3080, the mid-range RTX 3070 and the more affordable RTX 3060. All three versions have RTX ray tracing capabilities and also offer the DLSS system for increased AI performance.
Without a doubt the most interesting point is the adoption of DLSS, a system that is essential to gain performance without increasing battery consumption. In the graphics we can see how performance increases with RTX + DLSS activated in games as demanding as Control or Minecraft in its RTX version.
NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3060
The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card comes to fight in the entry level sector over its AMD rivals, a product that comes with somewhat lower specifications than the RTX 3060 Ti, but also cuts its price.
As we can see from the data provided by NVIDIA, without a doubt the most attractive point of this graphics card is the amount of RAM that goes up to 12 GB compared to the 8 GB of the 3060 Ti. To reduce its price we find a lower number of CUDA Cores, a cut in the data bus, lower performance and lower consumption in general.
