The Asus GeForce RTX 3060 Phoenix 12 GB is your average RTX 3000 series graphics card. The compact card comes with a single 12-blade fan that cools down the RTX 3060 GPU, memory, and the VRMs. The compact 2.55 slot card features a thick heatsink to cool down the whole card. The graphics card has no RGB lightings making it a pretty simple card.

Asus hasn’t given any information on the pricing or the release date of the card. It will be slightly higher than the MSRP, but the cards will be challenging to find and buy. NVIDIA tried easing the supplies introducing Mining cards and enforcing custom drivers for the RTX 3060 series card. But that hasn’t helped anyone in the gaming community.
