NVIDIA has just made an official announcement about their upcoming mid-range RTX 40 lineup, which includes three graphics cards. The RTX 4060 Ti model will be available in two versions, one with 8GB VRAM and the other with 16GB VRAM. Interestingly, the mid-range RTX 4060 series will offer more memory compared to the higher-end RTX 4070 series, which has 12GB VRAM.
Based on official information, the RTX 4060 Ti series is expected to deliver up to 22 TFLOPS of FP32 single precision compute performance, whereas the non-Ti variant, RTX 4060, is estimated to offer around 15 TFLOPS of shader performance. NVIDIA is comparing these figures with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060 series, which provide 16 TFLOPS and 13 TFLOPS respectively.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is confirmed to have a TDP of 160W for both models, not 165W. During gaming, the average power consumption is estimated to be around 140W. On the other hand, the RTX 4060 will be launched with a TDP of 115W, and a typical gaming session is expected to stay within a power envelope of 110W.
In terms of specifications, it is important to mention that the RTX 4060 Ti is equipped with 18 Gbps GDDR6 128-bit memory, while the non-Ti variant, RTX 4060, features 17 Gbps chips. As a result, the non-Ti version will have a slightly lower maximum bandwidth of 272 GB/s compared to the Ti series’ 288 GB/s.
Each RTX 4060 GPU has its own performance slide, showcasing significant improvements with DLSS3 (Frame Generation). However, it is advisable for gamers to initially focus on games without DLSS3 to better understand the standout features of RTX 4060 SKUs compared to the previous generation series.
NVIDIA has not disclosed the MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) for the RTX 4060 non-Ti model, but they have confirmed the rumors that this SKU will be launched in July. The 16GB variant of the RTX 4060 Ti will also be released during the same timeframe.
