    A bit at the edge of more than I'd normally be willing to spend on a GPU, but at quick glance it looks pretty nice.

    Scalpers and availability aside, anyone have any feedback about how it compares to other NVIDIA GPUs at that price, performance-wise? If I suddenly got the money for one and was able to even buy it, I'd buy it primarily for VR (Quest 2; ideally some high resolution at 90Hz) and some 4K games. I have a RX 580 currently that gets by with both, barely.

      No, this new 3060 has more VRAM than 3060 Ti... and 3070... and 3080...

        I'm sure that samsung's 8nm supply will be fine in a couple of months. Nvidia ordered their chips too late to have a good supply at launch, this will be fixed soon. Also AMD's supply problems will be fixed in 2H 2021 so you will be able to get amd gpus at normal prices then.

          Well, 12GB of VRAM on a "3060" makes no sense, unless a 16GB 3070 and/or 20GB 3080 are also in the works.

          Other than that, wake me up when I can actually buy one.

          Frustratingly, I can actually get RTX 3090's without too much trouble here; they're not even ridiculously overpriced vs. MSRP.

            The only thing I want Nvidia to announce is GBM support...

              GTX 460: 200$
              GTX 560: 200$
              GTX 660: 230$
              GTX 760: 250$ (now seeing why everyone went for the 750-Ti instead)
              GTX 960: 200$
              GTX 1060: 250$
              RTX 2060: 350$
              RTX 3060: 329$ (Nvidia: Look, the 3000 series is so much cheaper than our vastly overpriced 2000 series! look!)

              Seeing a problematic pattern here at the end? Anyone?

                  As long as Nvidia is not pushing some OpenSource driver or at least give useful input to the Nouveau team, it is very unattractive. Especially if you don't need cuda or if you aim for midtier cards.

                  Besides...12gb how are you going to need this?. 1080p ultra settings ? Not more then 7gb 1440p ultra OK maybe 12gb but the game will stutter. 4k ..not really playable. Rtx also to weak..I really don't get this card.

                    it'll be a while for me, I just bought a quadro m2000 4GB on ebay for 99 bucks.

                      You have fallen a victim to nVidia's marketing dept, and you are comparing apples and oranges. It's something almost all IT news sites do as well - you are comparing the GPUs based on their marketing name patterns, expecting them to be comparable, which they are not. The price bump is a further evidence of that. What you should do is compare GPUs that have roughly the same power requirements - that's what clearly defines the segments.

                      The GTX 1060 6GB has a TDP of 120W. The 2060 has 160W TDP. Do you see the 33% increase? What you should be comparing it to is the GTX 1660 (120W), which is much cheaper. The same applies to RTX 3060 (170W TDP). You are comparing prices of cards from entirely different segments.
