OPTICXCESS — GeForce RTX 3060 Announced By ASUS As The Latest VGA Line Up
ASUS today announced its newest graphics cards, namely ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, and ASUS Dual which are equipped with the latest 12GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. This product lineup extends the variants on offer from the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, previously featured on its highest variant GPUs, each graphics card also bringing out the best of the latest NVIDIA chipsets with advanced thermal solutions, enhanced PCBs and robust power designs.
GeForce RTX 3060 Line UP
12GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU
With an efficient high-power architecture and the second generation of NVIDIA RTX ™, the GeForce RTX 3060 delivers outstanding ray-tracing capabilities with the support of NVIDIA DLSS and other technologies, this graphics card is marketed with prices starting from IDR 7,799,000. Like all RTX 30 series GPUs, the RTX 3060 supports the trifecta of GeForce gaming innovations such as NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex and NVIDIA Broadcast that can accelerate performance and improve image quality. Coupled with realtime ray-tracing, this technology forms the basis of the GeForce gaming platform, delivering unmatched performance and features for a wide variety of games and for gamers wherever they are.
ROG Strix: Ready to Take Off
From top to bottom, the 12GB ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card features a rugged thermal design that can be optimized for the dynamic NVIDIA Ampere architecture. The metallic accented finish includes three fans featuring the latest ASUS Axial technology fan design, a more compact fan hub allowing for longer fan blades, and a high barrier ring provides increased static pressure to pump air through the side of the heatsink into the GPU heat spreader. The center fan’s reversal direction reduces turbulence in order to increase airflow efficiency. The fan and top of the graphics card are also equipped with RGB elements that can be adjusted with the Armory Crate software.
The large heatsink is almost completely filled by a 2.7 slot card designed to increase airflow. To heat the molds and into the heatsink array, MaxContact technology has been used to coat the surface of the heat spreader to increase smoothness at a microscopic level. Its flat shape allows better contact with the mold for increased thermal transfer. In addition to enhanced cooling circuits, Super Alloy Power II components, including top-shelf capacitors, chokes and stage power, can also easily generate hundreds of watts in an instant. The card components are soldered to the PCB using ASUS Exclusive Extreme Auto Technology to ensure proper connection and each card meets stringent ROG specifications to ensure reliability. GeForce RTX 3060.

Additionally, a FanConnect II header is included which allows the PWM fan to be adjusted based on CPU and GPU temperatures, providing extra intake or exhaust for tough work like 3D and computing. Builders who need a quick and simple way to adjust the card’s built-in fan speed can enable the onboard Dual BIOS switch to choose between the “performance” and “silent mode” profiles, without any additional software. Another easy-to-use feature is the onboard voltage-sensing that can monitor the PSU rail voltage. This circuit is fast enough to catch transients that cause the rail voltage to drop too low. When this happens, the red LED will light up to indicate a power supply problem, making it easier to find the source of the malfunction during gameplay.
The back of the card, features more design enhancements. To improve heat dissipation, the wide back plate vents and shortened PCB allow hot air to escape into the chassis exhaust fan, as opposed to circulating it back towards the cooler. Stainless steel is used for the I / O bracket to protect the port and provide a more secure mount. In addition, the ROG logo with RGB backlight adds to the perfection of this graphics card.
The 12GB ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card delivers a dynamic thermal design. Paired with the incredible performance of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, ROG Strix provides gamers with a whole new experience, from incredible frame rates, to smooth high resolution while playing immersive AAA games.
TUF Gaming: Built TUF
The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 12GB graphics card delivers incredibly powerful power and cooling. The metal lining houses three Axial-tech fans which use durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized to reduce turbulence, and stop mode will stop all three fans at low temperatures. In line with TUF Gaming’s predecessors, components are selected based on their durability and performance. In addition to top-shelf chokes and MOSFETs, capacitors with a high level of certification make TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 stand out from the competition.

A manufacturing process using Extreme Auto Technology ensures components are positioned and installed with high precision, and every graphics card produced is subjected to 144 hours of validation trials to ensure flawless performance during measurement.
Most of the back is clad in protective metal plates that have wide vents to prevent heat build-up. At the bottom of the GPU, the brackets provide consistent mounting pressure between the mold and the heat spreader, and the card I / O brackets are made of stainless steel to protect the port and provide a more secure mount. Precisely positioned dual BIOS switches allow customization of card default performance without requiring any specific software.
ASUS Dual: 2X Fan, 2X Fun
The ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 12GB delivers the best combination of dynamic thermal performance and broad compatibility, making it the perfect choice for smaller assemblies. A thin layer surrounds two Axial-Tech fans which are designed to maximize airflow through the large heatsink, and 0 dB technology automatically stops fans at lower temperatures.
The ASUS Dual graphics card is 20 cm long and fits a 2-slot design, allowing excellent thermal performance to be taken advantage of in a more compact form. Auto Extreme technology allows components to be mounted and soldered onto PCBs with greater precision and reliability, and this graphics card is protected by the rugged structure and durability of the aluminum plate back and stainless steel I / O bracket. The 12GB ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card provides gamers who want a smaller size but have the incredible thermal performance needed to play AAA games over the long term.
