Just as NVIDIA announced the official release of its new GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, several manufacturers have also revealed their RTX 3060 lineup for Malaysia. Among them is GIGABYTE who have planned five models for our market.
Leading the list is the AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 Elite which carries a slightly overlocked GPU at 1867MHz as compared to the stock chip which runs at 1777Mhz. The company has also equipped the card with its signature Windforce 3X cooling solution that comes with three 80mm fans that spin alternately and are being lubricated by “graphene nano lubricant”.
The solution also features five composite copper heat pipes that have direct contact with the graphics card’s GPU and also helped cool down its RAM. GIGABYTE has also installed customisable RGB Fusion 2.0 lights on all three fans.
Variations of the company’s Windforce 3X cooling solution have also been installed on its other RTX 3060 cards. Among them is the GeForce RTX 3060 Vision OC and GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming OC which are also running at a slightly higher clock speed of 1837MHz although they aren’t as fast as the RTX 3060 Elite and these cards also have less composite copper heat pipes in them at just three pipes.
Not to forget, GIGABYTE has also included the GeForce RTX 3060 Eagle in its release list for Malaysia. Equipped with a Windforce 2X cooling system, the solution may feature fewer fans than the Windforce 3X but they are larger in size at 100mm and also features four composite copper heat pipes.
Being the most affordable card in the list at RM 2,089, the RTX 3060 Eagle understandably runs at the standard 1777MHz clock speed although one can choose the OC version of the card that is clocked slightly higher at 1807MHz for RM 2,199. As for the higher-end models that we mentioned earlier, the AORUS RTX 3060 Elite goes for RM 2,569 while RTX 3060 Vision OC and Gaming OC are priced at RM 2,399 and RM 2,339, respectively.
As you might have heard, the graphics card is currently facing a stock shortage issue throughout the world which means that it may not be easy to find these new GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3060 cards at a retail store. So, do check with your favourite retailer for further details.
