Gigabyte AORUS RTX 3060 Elite Rev 2.0 Ampere Graphics Card
The Next Generation
Prepare yourself for an unforgettable gaming experience with the Gigabyte AORUS RTX 3060 Elite Rev 2.0 GPU, powered by the all-new Flagship NVIDIA GeForce Ampere architecture boasting 2nd Generation RT cores and 3rd Generation Tensor Cores to bring you the biggest graphical performance leap of the modern era. The RTX 3060 Elite features a staggering 12GB of 192-bit GDDR6 memory, the renowned WindForce 3X cooling system has been incorporated to keep all that power in check with its alternate spinning unique bladed fans to give you whisper quiet unprecedented high efficiency heat dissipation. A protective metal backplate not only enhances the aesthetics of the card but also enhances the structure to provide full protective coverage and with support for RGB Fusion 2.0 you have access to 16.7M customisable colour options and numerous lighting effects, you can truly make your own mark with this Neonpunk styled GPU showcasing futristic aesthetics in the darkness of night; the new era of Esports has arrived with the Aorus GeForce RTX 3060 Elite.
It's official NVIDIA have introduced an improved hash rate limiter to newly manufactured graphics cards; reducing their effectiveness for mining cryptocurrency and bringing more graphics cards back into the hands of gamers, GeForce RTX GPUs have introduced a range of cutting-edge technologies — RTX real-time ray tracing, AI-powered DLSS frame rate booster, NVIDIA Reflex super-fast response rendering for best system latency, and many more — created to meet the needs of gamers and those who create digital experiences. Identified by a "Lite Hash Rate or LHR Label" NVIDIA believe this additional step will get more GeForce cards at better prices into the hands of gamers everywhere.
WindForce 3X Cooling System
Brilliant Performance Needs Brilliant Cooling The Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 Elite features the WindForce 3X cooling system, featuring 3x 80mm unique bladed fans alternate spinning, 5 composite copper heat pipes direct touch GPU, 3D active fan and Screen cooling, which together provide high efficiency heat dissipation.
Alternate Spinning Fans By opting to spin the central fan in the opposite direction, the turbulence of adjacent fans is reduced whilst increasing air pressure to give you better throughput.
3D Active technology3D active fan technology provides semi-passive cooling; keeping the fans still when the GPU is under low load (demand), once a heavy task is initiated the fans will spin-up to provide maximum cooling performance, letting you work without distraction and play without worry. located on the side of the GPU an LED indicator will always let you know the current fan status.
Screen CoolingAorus have opted to implement an extended heatsink to allow the airflow to pass directly though to provide better overall heat dissipation.
Direct Touch HeatpipesThe shape of the pure copper heat pipe maximizes the direct contact area with the GPU. The heat pipe also covers the VRAM through a large metal plate contact to ensure proper cooling.
Create Ambience inside your PC
RGB FUSION 2.0With 16.7M customisable color options and numerous lighting effects, you can choose lighting effects or synchronise with other AORUS devices to create your own custom dynamic lighting ecosystem.

DirectX Raytracing Allows Incredibly Realistic Graphic Effects
DirectX 12 Ultimate offers features like ray tracing and variable rate shading
DirectX Raytracing allows games to simulate how light works in real life, providing incredibly realistic and beautiful graphics effects like global illumination, reflections, and shadows.
NVIDIA has partnered closely with Microsoft to enable full DXR support on GeForce GPUs. GeForce RTX GPUs were designed from the start for the extreme demands of ray-tracing workloads. Specialised RT cores, found only on GeForce RTX graphics cards, provide billions of rays per second of performance, and up to 3X the frame rates with DXR games and applications. This makes ray tracing at real-time frame rates possible for the first time.
