Nvidia's RTX 40 series family is here, and it starts at $299

Nvidia reveals their RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti graphics cards

Nvidia's RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti are coming, and both will bring DLSS 3 to the masses

Today Nvidia has revealed their new RTX 4060 family of graphics cards, which are due to launch over the next few months with pricing as low as $299. The RTX 4060 family will be comprised of three GPU models, the RTX 4060 (8GB), the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB, and the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB, all of which will support DLSS 3 (DLSS Frame Generation), AV1 Encoding, and the other benefits of Nvidia's RTX Ada graphics architecture. 

Launching first will be Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti 8GB GPU model, which will be available on May 24th with prices starting at $399. The GPU's 16GB model will launch in July, and Nvidia's lower-end RTX 4060 will also launch in July.

With their RTX 4060 series, Nvidia are bringing their cutting-edge GPU features to the mainstream market, which is great news for both content creators and gamers alike. For content creators, Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will be of great interest, given its large frame buffer size and feature set.

RTX 4060 (8GB)

With an MSRP of $299, Nvidia will be releasing their RTX 4060 in July with less VRAM than its immediate predecessor, but thanks to Nvidia's Ada graphics architecture, Nvidia will be delivering significant power efficient gains with their new RTX 4060. This is great news for PC builders and system integrators, s it should allow PC gamers to upgrade to this graphics card without needing to upgrade their power supply, and reduce the power costs of running an RTX XX60 class system.

Nvidia's RTX 4060 graphics card features more shader TFLOPs, RT TFLOPs, and AI TFLOPs than its predecessor, all of which should allow Nvidia's RTX 4060 to deliver significant performance gains over its last-generation counterparts.

RTX 4060 Ti (8GB/16GB)

Like many of Nvidia's other RTX 40 series products, Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti will be less power hungry than its predecessor, despite offering stronger overall performance levels. With both 8GB and 16GB options for this graphics card, Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti will give PC builders the option to future-proof their systems with a larger allotment of video memory, though this memory will come with a $100 price increase.

RTX 4060 Performance 

When compared to Nvidia's RTX 3060 graphics card, Nvidia has claimed that their RTX 4060 can offer gamers 20% more performance in traditional gaming workloads and larger 70% performance gains when Nvidia's new DLSS Frame Generation (DLSS 3) feature is enabled. For users of Nvidia's older RTX 2060, Nvidia expects their RTX 4060 to be 60% faster in traditional workloads and 2.3x faster when DLSS Frame Generation (DLSS 3) is utilised. 

Like many other RTX 40 series products, Nvidia's generational performance gains rely heavily on DLSS 3. As such, Nvidia are working to add DLSS 3 to as many games as possible.

RTX 4060 Ti Performance  

When compared to their RTX 3060 Ti Nvidia's new RTX 4060 Ti only delivers 15% performance gains in traditional workloads, and a more significant 60% performance gain over their older RTX 2060 Super graphics card. Again, DLSS 3 Frame Generation makes these performance gains significantly larger, making DLSS 3 support Nvidia's main selling point for their RTX 4060 series graphics cards. 

With this generation of products, Nvidia aren't trying to sell gamers traditional GPUs, they are trying to sell their DLSS ecosystem.

Like most of Nvidia's other RTX 40 series GPU launches, Nvidia are heavily marketing DLSS 3, as that is where Nvidia are achieving most of their generational improvements with their latest products. Nvidia wants customers to buy into the DLSS brand, as that is an Nvidia-only offering. If customers buy into DLSS, they will not be as interested in AMD or Intel products, and unlike older Nvidia features like PhysX, DLSS is a great feature and it is widely used in modern games.

If you are using an RTX 3060 or an RTX 3060 Ti, there is little reason to upgrade to their RTX 40 series counterparts unless you are interested in DLSS, AV1 encoding, or the 16GB frame buffer of some RTX 4060 Ti models. Nvidia is primarily targeting their RTX 4060 series at RTX 20 series owners, as that is where Nvidia offers worthwhile performance benefits both with and without DLSS 3.

last time i checked 8gb ram was far cheaper than 100, so i'd say the 16gb version isn't a good deal anyways.Quote

A 16gb kit of it costs about £30.

Hilariously I can even see the logic behind it too. Jen thinks that if he releases a card that people know does not have enough vram he can then double skank people by ramming them in the bum for double that amount.

Not one card I have seen them release in years has been well balanced. They’re all not enough or far too much.Quote

a gamer who still has all his marbles will buy a console instead.


that´s at least 560 euro street price for the 16GB models.
for a 60 class card. Quote

I got my 1070 for 520EUR back in the days 500 bucks for a 4060 Ti 16GB seems way too much.Quote
