MSI is officially lifting the veil from the new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti product lineup. The brand’s new mid-range Ampere graphics card are comprised of three lineups, the Gaming X Trio, Twin Fan OC, and the Ventus 2X OC and 3X OC.
The Gaming X Trio variant of the RTX 3060 Ti is the premium lineup of the three series, fitted with all the premium bells and whistles that MSI has to offer. This includes its TORX 4.0 triple fans, coupled with its Tri Frozr 2 cooling system and massive heatsink sitting beneath it. Of course, as it is still the trend, the card is also adorned with MSI’s Mystic Light RGB LEDs.
Powering up the card will require two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, which is one more than what is needed to run the card. As for its performance, MSI has overclocked the card’s boost clock to run at 1830MHz.
Moving down the list is the Twin Fan OC variant of the RTX 3060 Ti, a card that sports what can only be described as a barebone design and aesthetics. It employs a dual-fan thermal design and also has access to MSI’s Zero Frozr fan technology. In terms of clockspeeds, the card has a slightly higher than standard 1695Mhz boost clock. Also, it simply requires one 8-pin PCIe power connector to run.
At the bottom of the list is MSI’s Ventus OC series and in this instance, the RTX 3060 Ti comes in two flavours: the Ventus 2X OC and Ventus 3X OC. Like the Twin Fan, both cards have a boost clock of 1695MHz. There are, however, some physical differences between the two. As their names suggest, the Ventus 2X OC sports a dual-fan configuration, while the Ventus 3X OC has three. All of which are TORX 3.0 fans. Interestingly, the Ventus 2X OC requires two 8-pin PCIe power connectors to run, while the Ventus 3X OC only requires one. Oh, and neither card are peppered with Mystic Light RGB LEDs.
Regardless of card and I have mentioned in previous articles, the base of all the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti variants mentioned here still run on the same 8GB GDDR6 graphics memory, 14Gbps memory speed, 4864 CUDA cores and 256-bit memory bus.
In terms of pricing, that starts at RM1880 for the Twin Fan OC, RM2099 for the Ventus 2X OC, RM2199 for the Ventus 3X OC, and RM2299 for the Gaming X Trio. All cards should be available at all authorised retailers and PC shops, starting today.
