Gigabyte RTX 3060, GAMING OC, EAGLE and VISION series announced
Nvidia’s mid-range GPUs were announced at CES 2021, being one of the most requested alternatives by gamers who want to have a gaming PC with which they can play at 1080p / 1440p @ 60 fps. The RTX 3060 is Nvidia’s answer to the mid-range, a graphics card that ranks below the RTX 3060 Ti.
As usual, Gigabyte presents its GAMING OC, VISION and EAGLE models. The three with a different appearance and characteristics, let’s make a summary.
GAMING OC – Games with performance and cooling
Gigabyte uses a cooling system consisting of three WINDFORCE 3X fans and Screen Cooling technology for heat dissipation. The fans use a graphene lubricant that extends their life up to 2.1 times. It also has support for RGB Fusion 2.0 lighting.
VISION OC – A stylish exterior for content creators
Gigabyte tells us that VISION OC graphics cards are designed for content creators. Its cover is entirely in silver white and it still uses a cooling system consisting of three fans.
EAGLE OC – Unique and durable
This is the cheapest and most compact line within Gigabyte’s offering for the RTX 3060, at least for now. Both the EAGLE OC and EAGLE have more compact designs with two WINDFORCE 2X 100mm fans.
There is an RGB light on the side allows you to adjust the color of the lights and various effects through RGB Fusion 2.0.
