Colorful, the price of this particular GeForce RTX 3060 revealed


Colorful has announced that its iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G graphics card will have a cooling system very similar to that found on NVIDIA's Founders Editions and will be marketed in the United States for a substantial price of $ 839.
iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G occupies two expansion slots, measures 300mm in length and has a rather lively and colorful coverage, complete with RGB lighting. The product ships with a 6 + 2 phase power subsystem and has a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, located in the center of the graphics card. Its TGP is 170W, so a good 550W PSU will be more than enough.

The cooling solution is reminiscent of the one used on the Founders Edition models of the GeForce RTX 3080 or RTX 3090. There are two white axial fans 90mm, one on each side. Heat is transferred to the generous heatsink through four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes. The back plate boasts a magnetic design, offering the ability to make easy customizations. As for the video outputs, we find three DisplayPort 1.4b and one HDMI 2.1. The iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G has a base clock of 1,320MHz and a boost clock of 1,777MHz, adhering to NVIDIA's reference specifications for the GeForce RTX 3060. However, a small black button has been placed. on the back which increases the speed of the boost clock up to 1.822MHz.

We do not know if the graphics card will be noticed of the new Ethereum anti-mining limiter, as in the specifications it is only generically indicated a GA106 GPU. Given that NVIDIA is expected to ship the new chips this month, it is plausible to think that the iGame GeForce RTX 3060 bilibili E-sports Edition OC 12G still uses the older version of the GA106 die. Surely it will certainly not be one of the best video cards on the market, but it should be more than enough for an entry level configuration that aims at gaming in 1080p.

Ryzen 5 5600X, very balanced CPU with very high performance satisfactory in the gaming field, is currently available on Amazon.

Colorful fireball in the night sky dazzles Twin Cities residents

In the early hours of Sunday, May 9 a blue and green fireball flashed across Minnesota’s night sky.

Residents across the Twin Cities metro described the experience to the American Meteor Society. The organization received over 50 reports of the fireball from residents in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Additionally, dozens of residential security cameras captured the event.

The reports detail sightings of a blue and green fireball flashing across the sky around 3 a.m.

“It was pitch black out, but the fireball lit up the entire sky,” one Cokato resident described. “Huge, bright and fast.”

A Jordan resident said the sighting prompted him to call the sheriff’s office. The fireball, he described, left a trail like fireworks with white and copper sparks.

Fireballs are “exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to to be seen over a very wide area,” according to the Center of Near Earth Object Studies. “Objects causing fireballs are usually not large enough to survive passage through the Earth’s atmosphere intact, although fragments, or meteorites, are sometimes recovered on the ground.”

Several observers, including a 65-year-old Silver Bay man, said it was the most significant meteor sighting of their lifetime.

“I think it flashed at the end but I was too distracted with the gorgeous sparkling blue and green tail,” one Wayzata resident wrote.

“It was awesome,” a Bloomington resident concluded.
