The third DUAL design for the RTX 3060 series
ASUS released a new model based on the latest RTX 3060 Ti SKU.
Dual OC is a dual-slot and dual-fan card based on the updated RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory. It’s a completely new design, a third in generation of the RTX 3060 Dual series.
The compact form factor didn’t stop ASUS from adding extra frequency to one of the two models released this week. The company has OC models with clock speeds of up to 1680 MHz out of the box and up to 1710 MHz with software overclocking. ASUS guarantees that the non-OC variants will support up to 1665 and 1695 MHz, respectively.
- OC Mode : 1695 MHz (Boost Clock)
- Default mode : 1665 MHz (Boost Clock)
- OC Mode : 1710 MHz (Boost Clock)
- Default mode : 1680 MHz (Boost Clock)
This isn’t the highest clock of all the RTX 3060 Ti cards, though. ASUS offers up to 1785 MHz with their TUF and KO series, but only the former has been reintroduced with GDDR6X memory.
The RTX 3060 Ti features a GA104 GPU with 4864 CUDA cores. This model is equipped with faster 19 Gbps GDDR6X memory compared to the 14 Gbps GDDR6 SKU released in late 2020.
In terms of size, it sits between the old Mini and Dual designs. We’ve included a comparison of all three cards below.
- Dual Mini — 200 × 123 × 38 mm
- Dual (New) — 230 × 120 × 42 mm
- Dual (Old) — 269 × 136 × 52 mm
One should also mention that the new DUAL design has four display connectors (3x DP + 1 x HDMI), so the same configuration as the Mini. The original DUAL had an extra HDMI port, so 5 in all.

From the looks of it, neither the DUAL OC nor non-OC models are in stock at any retailer. However, this card was just released yesterday so it will probably take a few days.
