GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, the power of an RTX 3070 for $399

2The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is again at the center of speculation. According to some sources and in view of the latest information regarding its characteristics, its performance is mentioned. It could be as fast as the current GeForce RTX 3070.

The idea is interesting if its price will be more accessible than that of its competitor. The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is supposed to take advantage of an AD106-350-A1 GPU, a stripped-down version of the AD106. We would have 4,352 CUDA cores in action armed with 32MB of L2 cache. The graphics card would also be equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 at 18 Gbps operated through a 128-bit memory bus. In such condition the memory bandwidth would be only 288 GB/s.

Speculations GeForce RTX 4060 Ti GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
GPUs AD106-350 GA104-200/202
CUDA Cores 4352 4864
Boost frequency ? 1.67GHz
Memory 8GB G6 8 GB G6 or G6X
Memory bus 128 bit 256 bit
Memory bandwidth 288 GB/s 448 or 608 GB/s
Default TGP 220W→160W 200W
Release date Q1 2023 (?) December 2020

Like its big sister the GeForce RTX 4070, it is supposed to use the new 12VHPWR connector to supply its power. The thermal envelope would be 160W, a nice -20% compared to the current GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, performance

On the question of performance, we would be on a solution roughly equivalent to a GeForce RTX 3070. This is encouraging but not exceptional for all that. Why ? The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is able under certain conditions to compete with the RTX 3090 Ti while the RTX 4070 should position itself between the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090.

As a result, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti should be displayed alongside the RTX 3080 or the RTX 3070 Ti and not the RTX 3070. Moreover, in view of the rumors concerning its memory interface, high definitions are difficult to glimpse this which leads to think of a solution calibrated for 1080p and 1440P.

Finally, regarding its price, it is possible for Nvidia to expect a recommended price below the $400 mark ($399?). Why ? The GeForce RTX 3070 launched at an RRP of $499 compared to $399 for the RTX 3060 Ti. For its part, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti was accompanied by a recommended retail price of $799, while the next RTX 4070 should be around $599.

Nvidia could also try a price of $499, but at the risk of making it attractive since we would be in the same position as the RTX 3070. It is difficult to imagine that DLSS 3 technology alone can justify it.

All this is only based on rumours, let’s be careful, especially since the graphics card market has often shown that it is full of surprises.
