Pretty sure the 3060 will be RTX. There's supposedly also a 3050, 3050 Ti, 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti coming soon.
Got a 3060 now for over $500 but that is still fair considering that it rivals the 2080 (super) and has some advanced features. The promised $400 were fake prices to counter the cheap next gen consoles.
I didn't even notice that GTX was changed to RTX. Nvidia should tell their marketing department to push influencers to emphasize that feature more.
RTX designatse that they can do RayTracing/have tensor cores, iirc.
And yeah, 3060 Ti seems to be around 2080 Super's level for game performance. With the more modern architecture, and raytracing, 3060 Ti is easily the better choice imo.
I'll wait and see what regular 3060 and 3050 are like. They're supposed to be out next month, according to the same source that leaked that 3060 Ti would launch before the vanilla version.
