Palit ColorPOP

Palit has announced the first product in its ColorPOP series. The Palit GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ColorPOP spearheads the venture of selling GPUs with glossy metallic paints that shift colour as you move viewpoint. These graphics cards don’t stand on their paint jobs alone. On the topic of glitzy appearances, they also feature aRGB lighting with various preset effects. This is backed up by a substantial triple-fan cooler with zero-dB fan technology and Dr MOS ICs.

A picture says a thousand words and the video about runs at up to 60fps for 41s, equating to 2.46 million words – to describe colour shifting at various angles.

So, here we have a new GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, so those of you in the market for this type of graphics cards will probably be familiar enough with the hardware tech specs. You will find that the new Palit GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ColorPOP sticks very closely to the original recipe, with almost all the same key specs as the Nvidia reference model. That means it boasts a GPU featuring 4,864 CUDA cores with a base/boost of 1.41/1.67GHz, 8GB of GDDR6 on a 256-bit bus. In performance terms, it is a worthwhile step up from the previous-gen Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 or even sibling RTX 3060, as long as you have the budget for it.

Three colours in one

Considering the above tech specs, the Palit GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ColorPOP’s special sauce is represented entirely by its cooler’s build with extra fans and the colour-shifting hues highlighted in the video. At first glance of the product pages, you might think this card comes in three colours, but rather it is three colours in one. It shifts between looking Chameleon Green, Electric Blue, and Ultra Violet, depending on your viewpoint.

Palit doesn’t give us a great deal of extra info about its triple-slot cooling assembly. It asserts that below the fans is a “solid thermal module,” and the ColorPOP design features an “enlarged air-intake and heat dissipation area for optimized cooling solution.”

Good monitoring and tuning software can be a blessing, and Palit touts the bundling of the “all-new ThunderMaster” as a bonus for its customers. This is apparently a significant update with tuned UI and packed with personalised settings. ThunderMaster allows for fine control of OC settings, fans, and aRGB LED effects.

Palit hasn’t passed on details about pricing and availability for the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ColorPOP. If you like the look of it, we hope you can find one at a great price, however it will surely be priced above the existing Dual OC model, and probably slightly above the GamingPro triple fan models.
