Get an RTX 3060 GPU for £279 with this Ebay code
Earlier today we looked at a deal on AMD’s best graphics card, the RX 6950 XT, and now it’s time to look at the opposite end of the market: one of the cheapest RTX graphics cards from Nvidia. Ebay is running a promotion today that reduces the price of brand new items by 15% when you use the code BANK15 at checkout, and you can use it to pick up an RTX 3060 12GB for just £279.
That’s a great price for this mid-range GPU, and it’s especially rare to see features like hardware-accelerated ray tracing and DLSS image reconstruction at this price.
The RTX 3060 received a fairly positive review from former hardware editor Katharine, who rated it as a direct replacement for GTX 1060 and RX 580 graphics card users. Here it is:
Overall, the RTX 3060 is a very capable graphics card for those looking for a top-notch 1080p experience, delivering 70-80fps frame rates in nearly all of today’s biggest games, as well only about 60 fps speeds in the most demanding games of late. of 2020. It’s definitely the next-gen card that makes the most sense for people with 1920×1080 monitors right now…it’s definitely the most cost-effective next-gen graphics card for 1080p gamers, and it’s is also a good budget option for those also looking for a 1440p capable graphics card.
This review was from 2020, where the price was a hilarious £299 – just £20 more than the current bid price. Of course, it was nearly impossible to find an RTX 3060 at £299, RRP be damned, so I’d say it’s still a (small) improvement over where it was the last two years.
What do you think – does this price drop make the 3060 more tempting, are you going to wait for that GPU to get cheaper, or are you just going to jump on a next-gen GPU once they become available ? We may not see low-end next-gen cards for some time – potentially this time next year, even! – but I can understand the wait-and-see approach. There’s always something new on the horizon, isn’t there?
