From top to bottom, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 has been designed to push performance boundaries. A fresh design and more metal surrounds a grouping of axial-tech fans that leverage a rotation scheme. Below the blades, a larger, more impressive heatsink is ready for demanding thermal loads. The PCB has some tricks up its sleeves, and even the backplate has received some performance-boosting changes.
- Fast, more efficient GPUs
- Better throughput and improved power efficiency
- Concurrent RT and shading for an advanced level of ray tracing performance
- Cores deliver a massive boost in game performance and great AI capabilities
- Axial-tech fan design has been tuned with a reversed central fan direction for less turbulence
- 2.7-slot design expands cooling surface area to make the most of the three powerful axial-tech fans
- Super Alloy Power II includes premium alloy chokes, solid polymer capacitors, and an array of high-current power stages
- Axial-tech fan design
Three fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure.
- Advanced fans
The two side fans spin counterclockwise to reduce turbulence. And to eliminate unnecessary noise, a stop mode halts all fans when the GPU temp falls below 50° and power consumption is low.
- 2.7-slot design
The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card's large, 2.7-slot footprint.
- Fresh shroud
In addition to under-the-hood design changes, the ROG Strix features a face with metal accents that mirror the design aesthetic of ROG and ROG Strix motherboards.
- It's cooler out back
Flipping the card around reveals more design improvements. For enhanced heat dissipation, a wide backplate vent and shortened PCB allow hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the cooler. The I/O bracket is made from stainless steel to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. A conveniently placed Dual BIOS switch allows quick selection between "performance" and "quiet" mode for basic customization of the card's default behavior without software.
- Functional front
To fulfill the power demands of the GeForce RTX 3060, an 8-pin power connector is present, along with an onboard circuit that monitors PSU rail voltage. The circuit is fast enough to catch any transients that result in the rail voltage dropping too low. If that happens, a red LED will light up to indicate a power supply issue.
