For the market launch of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, the board partners presented numerous models with their own cooler design. ComputerBase provides an overview of the new graphics cards from Asus, EVGA, Gainward, Gigabyte, Inno3D, KFA2, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.
The new entry into the Ampere family
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti (test) is Nvidia’s new middle class for gamers and at the same time the entry into the current generation with Ampere GPU architecture. The performance is about the same as the RTX 2080 Super with higher energy efficiency and a lower price from 400 euros for the Founders Edition. However, the partner cards cost more and availability is manageable at the start. The models offered by the partners should be illustrated at this point.
In addition to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition, ComputerBase has already tested the Asus GeForce RTX 3060 Ti TUF OC and the MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Gaming X.
Asus starts this overview in alphabetical order. Three different models are each not overclocked and offered as an OC variant, so that there are a total of six products. Even with the non-overclocked versions, an OC mode can alternatively be selected using a switch. In terms of price, the Asus Dual RTX 3060 Ti (OC) is at the lower end with two axial fans and a simple housing with an aluminum backplate. For the OC version, however, you pay the highest surcharge of 70 euros.
For the TUF Gaming RTX 3060 Ti (OC), Asus relies on a case made entirely of metal with three fans that stop at low temperatures. The ROG Strix RTX 3060 Ti (OC) is the best equipped, but also the most expensive model with a massive 3-slot cooler and three fans trimmed for high performance. Asus advertises high cooling performance and high-quality components for further overclocking. Addressable RGB light-emitting diodes are almost mandatory in this class. The OC version has a particularly high clock rate of 1,860 MHz or even 30 MHz more in OC mode.
With the Asus KO RTX 3060 Ti Gaming there is another variant, which has not yet been presented for the German market.
With the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming, EVGA is introducing the spearhead of its 3060 Ti portfolio, which, compared to the Founders Edition, which operates with a boost clock of 1,665 MHz, is allowed to clock 135 MHz higher and with a maximum of 1,800 MHz Race is sent. For a top model, the graphics card has a comparatively flat 2.2-slot cooler with a total of three iCX3 fans with fan-stop mode. In addition to subtle RGB lighting, the FTW3 offers the usual connections with three DisplayPort and one HDMI. The graphics card is supplied with energy via two 8-pin PCIe connectors. Under the FTW3 Ultra Gaming, EVGA positions the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC Gaming, which only starts with a slight OC and up to 1,710 MHz boost clock (+ 45 MHz) and relies on a less complex cooling concept. In return, the XC Gaming manages with just one 8-pin PCIe connector.

With Ghost and Phoenix, Gainward presents the RTX 3060 Ti in two well-known series; the same design is available as an overclocked variant. The RTX 3060 Ti Ghost (OC) is compact and inconspicuous in its 2-slot design. Two fans, which stand still when the GPU temperature is below 60 ° C, meet a logo on the edge that is illuminated by RGB LEDs. The connections correspond to the standard for an RTX 3060 Ti, which also applies to the boost clock of 1,665 MHz; in the OC version there is again 30 MHz. The RTX 3060 Ti Phoenix (GS) has a bulkier and significantly longer 3-slot cooler with three fans. Additional RGB LED elements are placed between the latter. A second 8-pin socket has been added to the connections. The GS variant is overclocked to a high 1,800 MHz ex works.

Gigabyte is sending a total of five variants onto the market. The entry-level is the RTX 3060 Ti Eagle (OC) in 2-slot design with double fan, luminous (RGB) logo and an 8-pin socket. The clock rate increases in the OC version by 30 MHz to 1,695 MHz. Between the RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC and the Gaming OC Pro variant, there is not only 75 MHz, but also a thicker cooler and an additional 6-pin connector for the Pro version. Both have three fans. The flagship is the Aorus RTX 3060 Ti Master with 1,800 MHz and 3-slot cooler with three fans, RGB and seven heat pipes. Not only the total of six video outputs (only 4 can be used at the same time), but also the LCD panel on the side, which displays the GPU temperature or a GIF, are special features.

The RTX 3060 Ti Twin X2 (OC) is the cheapest model from Inno3D and, as expected, has a slim cooler with two fans that measure 9 cm in diameter. Here, too, there is an 8-pin connector, the standard equipment with video outputs and a backplate. Much more striking is the RTX 3060 Ti iChill X3 Red, the name of which says it all: The LED lighting is red and cannot be changed, which the manufacturer deliberately decided:
The iCHILL X3 RED lights up red LED without RGB control as it does not require this – the red look gives your PC system a mean devilish theme.
The cooler occupying three slots is equipped with three fans and six heat pipes. The overclocking is moderate at 1,725 MHz. The “Tail Fin”, a small acrylic plate with the X3 logo that is also used in other series and which can optionally be screwed to the flank, as described in the instructions (PDF), provides a little more variety in the look.

The KFA2 RTX 3060 Ti is the entry-level model with two 90 mm fans behind a panel in carbon look and an aluminum backplate with a generous air vent. Using the Xtreme Tuner software, the clock rate can be increased from 1,665 MHz to 1,680 MHz with just one click. The connections are standard fare. The KFA2 RTX 3060 Ti EX also has two fans, but its cooler occupies three slots. In addition, the fans are slightly larger at 102 mm in diameter. The factory boost clock is 1,695 MHz and via OC software it is 1,710 MHz. The normal version in black and gray has transparent fans that light up in different colors via RGB LEDs. In the white edition, the fans are also white, but they can also be illuminated in different colors.

MSI is offering a total of eight variants to start with. The simplest version is the RTX 3060 Ti Twin Fan in a compact dual-slot design with a standard clock and standard connections or as an OC version with 1,695 MHz. Despite the same clock rates, MSI has given the Ventus 2X (OC) an additional 8-pin power connector. The cooler and its two fans are larger. The longer Ventus 3X (OC) has three of the “Torx Fan 3.0” fans. The RTX 3060 Ti Gaming (X) Trio with 3-slot cooler and three fans of the Torx Fan 4.0 generation, whose special design is intended to concentrate the airflow, only offers more clock speed. The clock rates are 1,755 MHz and 1,830 MHz in the X version. Controllable RGB-LED effects (Mystic Light) including a luminous logo on the flank are set.

At Palit, similarities to Gainward’s line-up are no coincidence, after all, both brands belong to the parent company Palit Microsystems. Dual and GamingPro are the counterparts to Ghost and Phoenix. The Palit RTX 3060 Ti Dual (OC) is the entry-level model with a short, 2-slot high double fan design and standard connections as well as 1,665 MHz and 1,695 MHz GPU clock and a subtle appearance (also when using RGB). The RTX 3060 Ti GamingPro (OC) is the extravagant enthusiast model with more lighting in a long 3-slot format including three fans and a double power connection. The overclocked version has a boost clock of 1,800 MHz.

At PNY, the range is clearer with two models. The RTX 3060 Ti Uprising is the entry-level model based on the usual dual-slot and dual-fan principle. The simple design includes a backplate and the connections correspond to the standard with three DisplayPort and one HDMI. Despite the immensely long and, depending on taste, sonorous name, the PNY RTX 3060 Ti XLR8 Gaming Revel Epic-X RGB does not offer much more features. The 1,665 MHz boost means no overclocking and the connections also correspond to the cheaper uprising model. However, the cooler under the two fans is apparently designed differently. According to the manufacturer, “brilliante RGB Design“Doesn’t look like much on the official product pictures, at least.

Zotac also has two models or rather variants in its luggage. The RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge (OC) relies on a simple appearance with a discreet white glowing logo on the flank. The cooling system (IceStorm 2.0) is based on a radiator with five heat pipes and has two axial fans. Moderate clock rates of 1,665 and 1,695 MHz go hand in hand with the standard connectivity. But the models are inexpensive.
