VideoCardz writes ASUS is using a smaller design for its upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 ROG STRIX video card. The new model keeps the triple-fan cooling solution but it's slightly thinner and shorter than the RTX 3060 Ti ROG STRIX. The latter uses a 2.9-slot design while the RTX 3060 variant is 2.7-slot.
The card features a single 8-pin power connector which is more than enough for this 170W TDP SKU. However, it is worth noting that 3060 Ti comes with two such connectors. Interestingly the card comes with non-standard display connectors: dual HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4.
It's unknown when the ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 3060 will be available or how much it will cost. Initial availability of GeForce RTX 3060 cards is expected by the end of February, but volume isn't expected to be enough to meet demand.
