No signs of the AORUS RTX 3060 as of now but there will be more to come and you’ll probably see them in the second wave of release.
Just like the current RTX 30 series lineup, the RTX 3060 will also support PCIe 4.0, HDMI 2.1, AV1 decoding. The most notable feature is probably the 12GB worth of VRAM which according to NVIDIA, is meant to balance the cost and performance of the RTX 3060 because of its 192-bit memory bus. The RTX 3060 will be available later in February and NVIDIA will also bring the support for resizable BAR to all the RTX 30 series cards at the same time.
