The Santa Clara-based computer gaming company has opened its preorders for the latest graphics card on its massively popular RTX 3000 series, with the Nvidia RTX 3060 looking at a February release date this year. The GPU's release is nearing and the public cannot wait to get their hands on the hardware as preorders are on high for the 3060.
If one has skipped out on last year's Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Prime Day, and other countrywide sales and promotions, this may be the perfect time to upgrade one's rig and equipment for gaming uses. Nvidia features one of the world's top gaming equipment and needs, with its graphics card to be the top choice for gamers and enthusiasts in terms of performance.

Nvidia RTX 3060: Specs and Everything You Need to Know
According to Nvidia's video reveal on YouTube for the RTX 3060, it would have 12 GB of GDDR6 memory that boasts of 10 times more ray-tracing capabilities and performance compared to previous GPUs of the same tier. Nvidia also makes the 3060 capable to use the RTX suite's nifty features and special programs including RTX apps and DLSS.
The DLSS AI uses neural networks to configure computer settings in a game to render the graphics to lower resolution but still resemble a 4K video output, without burning off one's processor. The AI improves display quality despite being at a lower resolution.
The RTX 3060 GPU's frame rate also surpasses its previous iterations with the RTX 1060 and 2060, that can play "Cyberpunk 2077" (one of the highest frame rate game) at a solid 60 FPS. Nvidia promises a boost on all aspects of the 3060, compared to older GPUs.
