Since there wasn't any one, and I saw a little discussion in other post, wanted to make a 3060Ti discussion thread, not official.

Me myself, I have a 3060Ti Gaming OC PRO, techpowerup page here GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Ti GAMING OC PRO Specs

Pretty beefy card, unluckily lost the silicon lottery and can only reach 2145Mhz/2160Mhz at 1.1V, in the tops of 3DMark you can see a ton with +2200Mhz bins.

My OC/UV analyze is here, not sure if I should move it to this post or not.

I hope to see some discussion about owners of this card, even if we're really a few!

Subbed. Thanks for making this thread :)

Owner of a Asus Dual RTX 3060 Ti OC.

Using Asus Tweak II, I'd crank the sliders to max (I know that's vague) and the core clock would typically boost UP to ~2100 Mhz.
Memory clock slider was to the max. Never had stability issues.
Under full load (Control / Cyberpunk) the card averages ΔT 47C. 67C if you factor in ambient temp from thermostat.
Fan curve was auto and usually around 80% @ full load.

Various Timespy results below.


I'll try playing with MSI Afterburner and seeing where I can really get this card. Overall really happy with it. First Asus card I've owned and given today's context... glad I could find it at MSRP back in 2020...

Honestly for the 3060Ti itself, same, managed to get it near MSRP on December last year and It's amazing how this little card performs for it's price. I'm just using MSI AB for overclocking since I get better results with the curve editor, I use Aorus Engine mostly for fans and search VBIOS updates lol (I hope we get the Resizable BAR VBIOS soon)

This is the best score I could do on TimeSpy with my card I scored 13 269 in Time Spy, (13436 graphics score) I think sorting by graphics score on leaderboard mode, is about 40-45th place which isn't too bad. The first TimeSpy place with a 3060Ti, does 2310Mhz at 19°C.

Though on the 2nd test the core clock drop because Pwr, probably shunt modding will be the only way to fix that (or waiting for a compatible VBIOS with more power)

Wow - Very nice! That's about a 7% improvement over my best score (82 vs 88Fps). All while being much cooler.

Can't help but notice that we may be the few users on here with the card... lol

Panchovix what kind of videocard did you have before your upgrade to the 3060ti?
HD 5770 -> RX 560 -> 1660 Super -> 1080Ti -> 2070 Super -> 3060Ti.

1080Ti and 2070S only had them about 1 month each.

Reviving this thread.

I want to start my undervolting / overclock process for a: 3060 Ti Asus Dual OC.

However, I need a baseline first.
To objectively establish the baseline, I've done the following:
  • Logged a ~2.5 hr play session of RDR II via HWiNFO.
    • All results are uploaded to a Google Sheet.
    • GPU results are filtered via a separate tab.
    • Dashboard page summarizes all GPU data onto another tab.

Stock Settings - Red Dead Redemption II*​

AVG Temp [°C]AVG Voltage [mV]AVG Power [W]AVG Clock [MHz]Ambient Room T [°C]
67.5985193182721

The next step will be to modify the voltage curve to either: increase clocks or lower temperatures.

I was able to hit ~2000 MHz on the GPU before with Asus Tweak II using some basic sliders but I want to go further and really optimize the card via MSI Afterburner.

I'll post my results once I establish them. If you have any suggestions, feel free to shoot.

* Edit: Updated table.

Disclaimer:
  • My interior ambient temperature varies (I don't have AC nor insulation).​
    • Temp is pulled from reading on the thermostat.​
    • I tried to run tests in the morning or evening when temps were... reasonable :)
  • Fan speed is considerably lower / quieter too. (Default fan curve).
    • See sheets for details.
  • AVG results are from the start and end point of the FIRST test within Time Spy.​
    • They are not averages of the entire bench as the data is skewed when the tests switch from GPU 1 & 2 & CPU tests.​
    • See sheets for all results.​
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I've reduced power consumption by 25%.

Temps (and stability) won't be validated until I can run a real session of RDR II... but Time Spy results are promising.

P2 offers the best performance / watt out of all the various testing I've done.

P5 is also very impressive by holding ~2000 MHz during benching. However, for a the few FPS that it brings, I don't think it's worth the trade off (increased fan noise and heat). It also doesn't scale further with more voltage or high frequencies. Consistently crashes when trying to sustain a core frequency around 2100.

It's clear that any profile, whether its undervolting (UV) or overclocking (OC) are better than stock. Your mileage may vary. Below are results of P2 from 1hr of RDR 2. Hope this helps others with power limited GPU's. I'll update this post as needed or if requested with more info.

I have an Asus RTX 3060 TI dual OC LHR V2, do you know a compatible bios that have higher power limit for it?
I tried to flash the strix bios but didn't work.
