How well can the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra run games
12 Jul 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 998 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra graphics card is predicted to return a good performance on Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p of 67 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is F1 2021 which we saw got good frame rates of 74 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Dying Light 2, which is predicted to get 67 FPS under tests.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will be reasonable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 135 FPS, Medium: 106 FPS, High: 72 FPS and Ultra: 51 FPS. We added F1 2021 to our tests and saw it was reasonable with a 56 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Dying Light 2 leading us to predict 51 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra we get the impression that it is one of the better graphics cards for gaming at this screen resolution. We will see 1440p Ultra and High settings across almost all current games.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra.

GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture.


Architecture
It equips a cut-down Ampere GPU Codenamed GA106 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 3840 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides next-gen consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 12GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.


Performance


Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra suggests it will be close to the speed of the Nvidia RTX 3070, making it a suitable graphics card for 1440p gaming.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
