NVIDIA’s upcoming graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, is said to retain the same price point as its predecessor, the RTX 3060 Ti, at $399 US. This move aims to make the pricing more attractive to gamers and end-users, especially after the lukewarm reception to the RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4070 graphics cards.
Improved Market Conditions and Specs
Unlike the RTX 3060 Ti’s launch, which scalpers and crypto miners plagued, the current market situation for graphics cards is better, with most current-generation cards available at or below their MSRPs.
Regarding specifications, the RTX 4060 Ti is rumored to feature the AD106-350-A1 GPU core, with 34 SMs or 4352 CUDA rewrite 160 character meta descriptions, 8GB GDDR6 memory running at 18 Gbps, and a 128-bit bus interface, providing 288 GB/s of bandwidth. Moreover, the GPU will have 32 MB of L2 cache, an 8x improvement over the RTX 3060 Ti.
|Memory||8 GB GDDR6|
|Memory Speed||18 Gbps|
|Memory Bandwidth||288 GB/s|
|L2 Cache||32 MB|
|Compute Performance||~22 TFLOPs|
|Boost Frequency||~24 TFLOPs|
Performance and Efficiency
Based on the “reference” boost frequency, the RTX 4060 Ti is estimated to offer around 22 TFLOPs of compute performance, with AIB models boosting it close to 24 TFLOPs. This puts its performance level similar to the RTX 3070 Ti, but with a lower TGP of around 150W, making it much more energy-efficient.
Additionally, the RTX 4060 Ti will offer faster Raytracing performance with the bonus of DLSS 3. With these impressive specs, the RTX 4060 Ti could bring back ITX designs to the market.
Expected Launch and Pricing
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti will be introduced and launched in May. While rumors suggest that the card’s price may be set at $450 US, nothing is yet confirmed, and it is expected to retain the exact pricing as the RTX 3060 Ti at $399 US.
