ASUS has just revealed its RTX 3060 Phoenix, the company’s first RTX 30 series graphics card to be cooler using a single axial fan, confirming that we have entered into the low-power segment of Nvidia’s Ampere product line. 

ASUS’ RTX 3060 graphics card has been listed on the company’s website, offering users a 2.5-slot design that’s 17.7 cm long, features 12GB of 15Gbps GDDR6 memory and a boost clock of 1807MHz (in OC mode). 

Cooling-wise, the RTX 3060 Phoenix uses a single Axial-tech fan with a dual ball bearing design. Combine that fan with the GPU’s 2.5-slot form factor, and we have a heatsink that’s capable of handling the RTX 3060’s power output. This graphics card is designed for compact systems, pairing well with small form factor Mini ITX motherboards.

Like other ASUS graphics cards, the RTX 3060 12GB Phoenix boasts a 144-hour gaming stress test and uses the company’s Auto-Extreme manufacturing technology to ensure reliability. 

Typically, Phoenix series graphics cards from ASUS aim at MSRP pricing, acting as a baseline model for the company’s GPU product lines. Sadly, given today’s GPU market, this graphics card will likely ship at a premium price at retailers.
