Nvidia announces GeForce RTX 4060 series starting at $299

Nvidia today announced the mid-range models of its GeForce RTX 40-series of consumer graphics cards. The 4060 series will include three models, the RTX 4060, the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB, and the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB.

The RTX 4060 features the AD107 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores, about 52% of the AD104 on the 4070. It has a base clock speed of 1.83GHz and boost clock speed of 2.46GHz. Nvidia claims the 4060 is 1.2x faster than the 3060 and 1.6x faster than the 2060 without frame generation.

The 4060 will come with 8GB of 128-bit GDDR6 memory clocked at 17Gbps along with 24MB of L2 cache. It features the same 3rd Gen RT cores and 4th Gen Tensor cores as other Ada Lovelace cards, which enables features such as DLSS 3 Frame Generation. You also get 1x 8th Gen Nvidia Encoder (NVENC), which enables encoding and decoding AV1 content.

The RTX 4060 has a total 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. There will be no Founders Edition card from Nvidia. The RTX 4060 prices start at $299 and will be available in July.

The RTX 4060 Ti features the larger AD106 GPU with 4342 CUDA cores, roughly 57% of the 4070 Ti GPU. It has a base clock speed of 2.31GHz and boost clock speed of 2.54GHz. Nvidia claims the 4060 Ti is 1.15x faster than the 3060 Ti and 1.6x faster than the 2060 Super without frame generation.

The 4060 Ti will come in two memory configurations featuring either 8GB GDDR6 or 16GB GDDR6. In either case, it will have the same 128-bit memory interface and will be clocked at 18Gbps with 32MB L2 cache. The 4060 Ti has a total board power of 160W for the 8GB model and 165W for the 16GB model. Aside from that, the specs are similar to the 4060.

The 4060 Ti will be available in 8GB model from Nvidia as well as board partners while the 16GB model will only be available from board partners. It starts at $399 for the 8GB model and $499 for the 16GB model. The 4060 Ti 8GB will be available starting Wednesday, May 24. The 16GB model will be available in July.

Seems like it all is caused by Nvidia trying to fool customers with the "4080 12gb" Which should've actually been a 4070. But they couldn't get that owned. So they made the 4070 a 4070ti. Then the card which is actually a 4060ti...

Exactly. It's so cut down compared to the previous 3000 equivalents and the performance is barely better to the point that in reviews, the 3060 Ti was able to match the 4060 Ti in a few tests. The entire 4000 generation other than the 4090 provi...

People might think this is a good deal, but it comes with the worst generational improvements ever seen for a same series card. That is because the 4060 is basically a 4050 badged as a 4060(it's actually even worse than that), so you are pa...
