ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 4060 Twin Edge OC White Edition Graphics Card Review

Final Thoughts

As we come down to the end of this review it sort of seems like gamers have had a bad taste in their mouth from NVIDIA when it comes to the RTX 40 Series. You first had them announce two different RTX 4080 cards which they got called out on and then turned the RTX 4080 12GB into the RTX 4070 Ti. With the RTX 4060 Series there are three different cards (RTX 4060, RTX 4060 Ti, RTX 4060 Ti 16GB) which is just all around confusing. And just a day or so before the launch of this card NVIDIA selected certain YouTubers to “preview” the card, but they were ONLY allowed to test Cyberpunk 2077 at 1080p with the RT Ultra preset. Anyone with a brain can see that this single test is likely the absolute BEST circumstance for the RTX 4060 as Cyberpunk is incredibly optimized for NVIDIA cards as well as ray tracing. These preview videos just seem like ads or NVIDIA trying to paint a narrative before full-length reviews come out. And NVIDIA wonders why so many gamers are upset…

In any case, what are you going to get with the RTX 4060? Well in our testing this is a very capable card at 1080p with out any type of frame generation or NVIDIA-specific features. In our seven game test suite we saw an average FPS of 97.91 FPS at 1080p, which like I said is very capable. Those numbers are only going to get better if you are playing esports titles. So if we compare to the previous generation in our tests the RTX 4060 is about 13% faster than the RTX 3060 at 1080p, but around 21% slower than the RTX 4060 Ti.

When we move up to 1440p we saw an average FPS in our game tests of 64.9, which is indeed playable, but many games will dip below that 60 FPS mark with the settings turned all the way up. This is only going to be about 10% better than the RTX 3060 and 24% worse than the RTX 4060 Ti. So this really only going to be a 1080p card if you want to max out your settings.

And if we do look at strictly at 1080p and pricing it doesn’t look great for the RTX 4060 Ti. At 1080p as I mentioned it is 21% better, but the $100 price difference between the cards makes it about 28% more expensive. Maybe that is the reason why these cards were not launched at the same time? And that is what it all comes down to is price right? The MSRP of the RTX 4060 is $299, which many people are going to say is still too high. I think NVIDIA could have saved some face with this one and made the card $279.

I think this could be a good upgrade for someone who is on something like a 10 series card as that generation of graphics cards did not have the features like real-time ray tracing, DLSS, and other things that you get with NVIDIA’s software suite.

The RTX 4060 Twin Edge OC White Edition card from Zotac is going to be one of the better looking RTX 4060 cards out there, especially since you get that cool white lighting on the card and the all-white design. You are also going to get a slight overclock, which will garner you a few more FPS in certain titles. Now since this is not a reference or MSRP card, Zotac will be selling the card for $329.99.
