The pixel and texture fillrate are both at 133.2 GPixel/s & 674.3 GTexel/s, respectively.
The card comes packed with a dual-bios design with performance and silent mode. Its three fans start to spin and cool once the GPU warms up.
The card has a duo of (6+2) pin power headers, for maximum power draw for providing performance. There is something new on the spec list, too – support for PCI-express 4.0.
In order to gauge the real-world performance, we put the card through bunch of benchmarks. Ion the 3DMark: Night Raid tests, it scored 56329, while its graphics score stood at 118197. In the 3DMark: Fire Strike tests, it scored 23690, while its graphics score stood at 30124.
In 3DMark: Fire Strike Ultra, the card scored 7514, while the graphics score stood at 7536. In the 3Dmark TimeSpy tests, the card was able to score 11374 and the graphics score stood at 12356. In 3Dmark Port Royal, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3060 Ti GAMING OC was able to score 7045.
For the Non OC tests, we conducted tests at 4k 3840×2160, 2k 2048×1080, and 1K. The scores captured are as below:
In terms of the operating temperature, check out the table below, based on the FurMark 15 min Test:
As you can see the graphics card was able to keep its operating temperatures well inside the borders.
For this benchmark, we used a test bed that consisted of the Intel Core i7 9700K as the processor, ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI APEX as the motherboard, ASUS ROG THOR 850W as the PSU, and GSKIL TridentZ 3200MHz CL14 2x4GB as the RAM.
This card is sort of a mass product for gaming enthusiasts, and it can run games at 4K. You also get WQHD and Full HD. In terms of the audience, the 3060 Ti series will appeal to those looking for a gameplay experience in WHQL resolution. For anyone who is looking for a gaming GPU that is offered at a pocket-friendly price, offers good performance, and good rendering quality, the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3060 Ti OC perfectly fits the bill.
