PALIT GeForce RTX 3060 DUAL OC review
1320 1867 1875 15000 10 PALIT GeForce RTX 3060 Dual OC 12G Yeah, so if it has that OC in the name, it means it's tweaked a little! The DUAL OC card comes as a more valuable product that should sit closer towards MSRP pricing. That proper shader core count on the GPU is paired with 12GB GDDR6 graphics memory at 192-bit running at 15 Gbps.

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING OC 11G review
You will spot two power connectors (8-pin) and at the backside, you'll find a matte black solid backplate, unfortunately, is it completely closed. The Gigabyte RTX 2080 Ti GAMING OC has a slightly increased clock frequency of 15 MHz and the memory runs at reference frequencies (11GB GDDR6 / 14 GHz effective data-rate). With the help of XTREME ENGINE software by pressing a button the card will go into OC mode and gets an extra 15 MHz tweak

Next-generation GPUs for next-generation PC gaming
But the only viable option for 4K gaming is the RTX 2080 Ti, and Nvidia’s Founders Edition will run you $1,199. That’s a serious investment for 4K gaming, and that’s before you even get to the $2,000 you currently need to spend to get a 4K monitor with 144Hz refresh rates.
