In conclusion, the best CPU for the RTX 3060 depends on your budget and what you plan to do with it. For those who want the best performance, AMD's Ryzen 9 5950X is a great choice. If you need something more affordable, Intel's Core i5-11600K is a great budget option.What FPS can RTX 3060 run? ›
The 3060 delivers a cinematic 33fps at 4K, but things look a lot better at 1440p (54fps) and 1080p (68fps). Focusing on 1080p, we're getting around 72 per cent the performance on an RTX 3060 Ti at 82.5 per cent of the cost; not a great trade-off unfortunately.What can I run with a RTX 3060? ›
As a mainstream card, the RTX 3060 primarily targets 1080p and 1440p gaming. Some lighter games may also run fine at 4K, or in some cases, you could shoot for 4K at medium settings. But despite having more VRAM than even the RTX 3080, frame rates definitely take a hit at the highest resolutions.
