NVIDIA Drops RTX 4060 Performance & Official Price

After the first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 benchmarks leaked yesterday NVIDIA released a blog post going over the performance and features of the card. They also have confirmed the price of the card at $299. While NVIDIA did list this price in their original announcement of the RTX 4060 series it was up in the air if they were going to keep that price. So the GeForce RTX 4060 will go on sale on June 29th starting at $299 for MSRP models with non-MSRP models being more expensive.

When it comes to performance NVIDIA has provided the graph you see below that shows performance across 18 different games at 1080p. This graph shows performance with both frame generation and no frame generation. We can see that if you would be upgrading from something like a 1060 you would see 8x performance without frame gen, but if you were upgrading from a 2060 you are only going to see a 1.6x increase in performance without frame gen. Obviously these numbers go up with frame generation.

They have also included a video that shows off the performance and efficiency of the RTX 4060 in Dying Light 2 Stay Human, Returnal, and Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.

Then there is a full comparison of games at 1080p resolution with max settings. NVIDIA Is comparing the RTX 2060, RTX 3060, and RTX 4060.

When it comes to power the GeForce RTX 4060 has the lowest power requirements in the entire RTX 40 series lineup. During gaming you should see an average of 110W power (115W TDP) so it should consume around 2.2 kWh per week, which is much less than the RTX 3060 at 3.5 kWh. NVIDIA has provided estimated power savings comparing the RTX 3060 to the RTX 4060.

RTX 4060 Power Performance

The RTX 4060 will be based off the AD107-300 GPU offering 3072 CUDA cores, 24 RT cores, 96 Tensor cores, 96 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. It will have 8GB of GDDR6 memory running across a 128-bit memory bus.
