Nvidia officially announced the next GPU in the RTX 40 series of desktop graphics cards, the RTX 4060 Ti, which succeeds the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card will be available in two models: one with 8 GB of memory will be released on May 24 and will be available in stores for $399. The other will have 16 GB of memory and will be released sometime in July for $499. Aside from differences in pricing and memory, both RTX 4060 Ti models share the same specs, including the same number of RT cores and Tensor cores: 51 and 353 TFLOPs, respectively.
Last year, the company announced two variants of the RTX 4080 – one with 12GB of memory and the other with 16GB of memory. Nvidia finally decided to phase out the 12Gb RTX 4080 graphics card because, according to the company, it is a “fantastic graphics card”, but the GPU “wasn’t given the right name” and they believe that the numbering will only confuse customers . Like the other GPUs in the RTX 40 series, both RTX 4060 Ti models use the Ada Lovelace graphics architecture and support the third generation of Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) upscaling technology.
According to Nvidia’s intentions, those who play games in Full HD will buy these products. While 1080p may be considered outdated by some in the PC world, according to Nvidia, 77 percent of gamers play at 1080p or lower. And if you look at Steam’s recent hardware and software survey from April, you can see that the most popular GPU is the GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card. There is a lot of debate in the PC gaming community about the meaning of 8 GB cards, especially with the appearance of increasingly demanding games that push the limits of memory even at 1080p at maximum settings. When turned up, at 1440p and of course 4K resolution, they clearly bleed, but according to Nvidia, this card is not even for that.
Nvidia only shared performance data at 1080p, perhaps not by accident. The company’s numbers suggest that there won’t be a huge jump in performance between the RTX 3060 Ti and the 4060 Ti, unless DLSS 3 is involved. In terms of specifications, the RTX 4060 Ti will be a 22 teraflop card with AV1 encoding support and efficient power consumption. Total graphics power is 160 watts for both the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB and 16GB models, and Nvidia claims the power consumption for average gaming will be around 140 watts. The RTX 3060 Ti’s total graphics output was 200 watts, and according to Nvidia, it uses an average of 197 watts during gaming, so we’re seeing a pretty significant improvement in power efficiency.
The RTX 4060 is a 15 teraflop card with 8 GB of VRAM, which is 4 GB less than the 12 GB found in the RTX 3060. Nvidia has made a similar improvement in energy efficiency here: the RTX 4060 has a total graphics output of 115 watts and a claimed average output of 110 watts. By comparison, the RTX 3060 was a 170-watt card, and according to Nvidia, it consumed an average of 170 watts while gaming.
Nvidia also announced the GeForce RTX 4060, which will be released sometime in July and will cost $299 – $30 less than the RTX 3060’s original retail price. Nvidia’s 60-series GPUs are the most popular among PC gamers on Steam, and the launch of the RTX 4060 family is the first time we’ve seen Nvidia’s latest RTX 40-series cards priced under $500, let alone $300 . That’s probably thanks to Intel pricing its own A750 chip at just $289.
8GB of VRAM on both the RTX 4060 Ti and 4060 will raise questions about these cards, even if 60-gen gamers are used to 1080p resolution and fine-tuning settings for maximum performance. Nvidia is clearly counting on this announcement of the 16GB RTX 4060 Ti, but it’s surprising that they don’t start at 12GB for the base model to improve texture quality, ray tracing and general visual performance. Nvidia is probably not alone with the 8GB configuration for this card category. THE according to rumours AMD is set to launch an 8GB Radeon RX 7600, just weeks after the company announced he pointed out to the disadvantages of cards with little VRAM.
