After a long wait, the NVIDIA RTX 4060 series is finally here for all those looking for affordable GPUs with modern features. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 series will come in three distinct models – RTX 4060, 4060 Ti 8GB, and 4060 Ti 16GB.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 and its Ti variants
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 comes with the AD107 GPU and 3072 CUDA cores, about 52% of the AD104 on the 4070. The GPU has a clock speed of 1.83 GHz and a boost clock speed of 2.46 GHz. As per the firm, the 4060 is 1.2x faster than the RTX 3060 and 1.6x faster than the RTX 2060 without frame generation. It also comes with 8 GB of 128-bit GDDR6 memory clocked at 17 Gbps with 24 MB of L2 cache. It features the same 3rd-Gen RT cores and 4th-Gen Tensor cores. They enable features such as DLSS 3 Frame Generation. Further, you will get 1x 8th Gen Nvidia Encoder (NVENC). This allows for the encoding and decoding of AV1 content.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 GPU comes with a power rating of 115W and can feature either a single 12VHPWR connector or a single 8-pin or 6-pin connector depending on the manufacturer. The company won’t offer a Founder Edition this time around, perhaps, because this GPU is focused on those who just want a modern “value-for-money” card. For those seeking a modern ‘value-for-money’ card, you’ll be glad to know that this GPU starts at $299 and will be available in July.
The Ti series
Gizchina News of the week
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti comes with a larger AD106 GPU with 4342 CUDA cores. It has a based clock speed of 2.31 GHz and a boost clock speed of 2.54 GHz. Nvidia states that the 4060 Ti is 1.15x faster than the 3060 Ti. Also, it is 1.6x faster than the 2060 Super without frame generation.
As we’ve mentioned before, the NVIDIA 4060 TI will have two versions with 8 GB GDDR6 and 16 GB GDDR6 RAM. Both have the same 128-bit memory interface and will have a clock of 18Gbps with 32 MB L2 cache. The RTX4060 Ti has a total board power of 160W for the 8 GB model. It’s 165W for the 16 GB model. Apart from these differences, it is quite similar to the base model. The 8 GB model will come from NVIDIA and board partners. The 16 GB, on the other hand, will only come from board partners. It will sell at $399 for 8GB and $499 for the 16GB model. The NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti 8 GB will be up for sale starting next Wednesday, May 24. The version with 16 GB will be available in July.
The fight will be tough in the affordable GPU segment
We are curious to see the impact that those relatively-cheap GPUs with DLSS3 will have on the market. It will be interesting to see how the base NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 compares to the Intel ARC A770 and some of AMD RX offerings. Intel’s offering has a starting price around the $279 mark for 8 GB and $350 for the 16 GB variant. While Intel’s solution provides a good bang for your buck, we assume that some GPU enthusiasts will prefer NVIDIA due to the well-consolidated DLSS technology.
