NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4000 family continues to grow. This time with a series of proposals that aim to make available to PC users two alternatives to immerse themselves in the demanding world of video games, but with a relatively low price.
We are talking about the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti, two mid-range graphics cards that will hit the market as soon as this month and next month. Let’s see what are the features of these new models from the American manufacturer.

Balancing performance and price, but with some trade-offs
The series of graphics cards presented today make use of the well-known Ada Lovelace architecture. It also builds on the AD106 GPU chip that we have also seen in the mobile versions of the RTX 4070 that came to notebooks earlier this year.
Regarding CUDA cores, the GeForce RTX 4060 counts 3,072, while the RTX 4060 Ti raises this number to 4,352. The memory interface width is 128 bits. It should be noted that in these two aspects, they lag behind the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti.
The trump card of the latest from NVIDIA is undoubtedly related to the benefits of Ada Lovelace (absent in the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti), high clock speeds, and improved L2 cache that improves the overall performance of the cards, despite their “reduced” memory bus.
We’ll have to wait for independent benchmarks to know the performance stats in a real-world scenario, but the data shared by NVIDIA doesn’t point to a big jump in performance with DLSS disabled and bets on this technology to improve it.
The RTX 4060 will arrive with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, will reach 15 TFLOPS, and will have a power consumption of 115 W. The RTX 4060 Ti, meanwhile, will have two variants: one with 8 GB of memory and the other with 16 GB, with power consumption of 160 and 165 W respectively, with 22 TFLOPS.
And of course, at this point, the great memory dilemma arises. In recent times, the debate has been raging about whether 8 GB will be enough to run demanding games at 1440p. Fortunately, there is a 16 GB version, but with a price premium.
Pricing and Availability of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060: €335 (available from June)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB: €449 (available as of May 24)
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16 GB: €559 (available from July)
Recall that these cards will arrive under different brands and will be available through different distribution channels. However, NVIDIA will offer for sale a Founders Edition of the 8GB GeForce RTX 4060 Ti through its website.
