RTX 3060 TI
A new all-aluminum shroud adds a robust flair to TUF builds. The top-side RGB element can be customized with Armoury Crate to sync up with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting.
A MaxContact heat spreader efficiently transfers heat into a new 2.7-slot heatsink. On top, three Axial-tech fans work in tandem to drive air through the entire array, helping to keep temperature under tight control.
TUF Gaming cards leverage our tried-and-true Axial-tech fan design, with three fans working in tandem to satisfy the thermal demands of NVIDIA’s new high-octane design. The fans rely on dual ball fan bearings to ensure consistent performance and increased longevity compared to sleeve bearings and other bearing types
The fans have been smartly tuned with a reversed rotation for the center fan, which reduces turbulence, and with a fan-stop mode that kicks in when the GPU temp falls below 55 degrees.
It’s Cooler Out Back
Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the GPU cooler. Beneath the GPU, a bracket provides consistent mounting pressure between the die and heat spreader. A conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows customization of the card’s default performance profile without software.
Dual ball fan bearings that stand up to tough conditions more readily than other bearing types and top-shelf capacitors that pass military-grade certification team up to boost product longevity.
Hardware and software come together to let gamers fully customize and control their gaming experience. GPU Tweak II enables tweaks and monitoring, XSplit offers a robust streaming solution, and wtfast can improve routing to game servers for a more stable gaming connection.
