Colorful’s iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G graphics card sports a cooler very similar to what you might find on Nvidia’s own reference cards. The GPU won’t come cheap; it’s set to arrive at U.S. retailers for $839.
Checking in with a dual-slot design, the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G measures 300 mm long and features a vivid shroud with both Colorful and bilibili E-sports branding. The graphics card comes with a 6+2-phase power delivery sub-system and sips power through a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, which is located at the middle of the graphics card. It is rated for 170W, so a decent 550W power supply is more than sufficient.
The cooling system is similar to the reference system for Ampere. There’s RGB lighting surrounding the shroud’s edge. The cooler utilizes two white 90mm axial fans, one on each side of the shroud. The heat is transferred the to giant heatsink through four copper heat pipes that are 6mm in diameter. The backplate boasts a magnetic design, opening the door for easy customization. The graphics card offers three DisplayPort 1.4b outputs and one HDMI 2.1 port.
The iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G runs with a 1,320 MHz base clock and 1,777 MHz boost clock, adhering to Nvidia’s reference specifications for the GeForce RTX 3060. However, there’s a tiny, black button at the rear of the graphics card that cranks the boost clock speed up to 1,822 MHz, a minuscule 2.5% improvement.
Its unknown if the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G will arrive with Nvidia’s reworked Ethereum anti-mining limiter. Colorful lists the graphics card with the GA106. Without more details, it’s impossible to know for certain at this point.
Nvidia is rumored to deliver the revised Ampere silicon in May. It’s plausible that the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G is still using the previous version of the GA106 die, depending on when Colorful started producing the graphics card. At $839 and with limited quantities, consumers shouldn’t have to worry about cryptocurrency miners. Scalpers, however are another case.
