GN is working with Eden Reforestation Projects once again to plant 10 trees per GN store item sold until December 18, 2020. This applies to multi-item orders (as a multiplier) and to back ordered items. You can grab mouse mats, modmats, bar runners and glasses, shirts, and more here and contribute to the cause:

Our review of the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti GPU is now live, in the form of the RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition. We have cards in from EVGA, ASUS, and other partners, but due to tight timelines for end of year content, we’re not sure when or if we’ll get to all of them. We have a number of RX 6800 GPUs that we’re interested in reviewing first. Either way, today, we need to test the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti. Our benchmarks include some light thermal testing with auto VBIOS settings on the FE card, overclocking, gaming tests for “standard” graphics, hybrid rendering and ray tracing performance, power consumption testing, and more. We kept this review much simpler than some of our other video card reviews recently, but it still covers just about everything. If you’re curious about Smart Access Memory performance on the AMD cards, check out our RX 6800 XT review.
