NVIDIA has officially announced the RTX 4060 family of GPUs. With the RTX 4060 Ti launching this May 24 and the RTX 4060 planned for July.
This includes the RTX 4060 Ti, launching next week on May 24 starting at $399 and, perhaps the biggest news, the RTX 4060, which will be available in July for just $299, $30 less than the original RTX retail price. 3060. A 16GB version of the RTX 4060 Ti will also come in July for $499.
Nvidia’s 60-class GPUs are the most popular among PC gamers on Steam, and the launch of the RTX 4060 family marks the first time we’ve seen Nvidia’s latest RTX 40-series cards available below the $500 price tag. , and much less than $300.
The $399 RTX 4060 Ti launches May 24 with just 8GB of VRAM, while a 16GB model is due out in July priced at $499. There’s an ongoing debate about the value of 8GB cards in the PC gaming community right now, particularly with the advent of more demanding games that really push the limits of GPU memory even at 1080p (if you want all the settings like playing on Ultra graphics). It’s a problem if you wanted to use it for 1440p resolutions, and of course 4K resolutions, but NVIDIA has positioned the RTX 4060 Ti card for the 1080p market.
Nvidia has only shared performance data at 1080p, even though the previous RTX 3060 Ti was more than capable at 1440p a few years ago. We’ll have to wait for the full reviews to see what performance is like at both 1080p and 1440p, but Nvidia’s numbers suggest there won’t be a huge jump in performance from an RTX 3060 Ti to a 4060 Ti unless DLSS 3 is involved. .
Spec-wise, the RTX 4060 Ti will be a 22 teraflops card with AV1 encoder support and more efficient power usage. Total graphics power is 160 watts on the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB and 16GB models, and Nvidia claims that average gaming power usage will be around 140 watts. The RTX 3060 Ti had a total graphics power of 200 watts, and Nvidia says it uses an average of 197 watts during gaming, so there are some impressive power efficiency improvements here.
