Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti FE and Gigabyte Eagle Review
Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti FE
We’ve grown so accustomed to the Nvidia lurid green that the understated, all black, packaging for the RTX 4060 Ti came as something of a shock. We don’t mind it at all. Simplicity can be a positive.
The card itself will be very familiar to anyone who’s seen any of the Founders Edition cards Nvidia have released since their design revamp. It still looks the business.
The top side as you see it when mounted in standard orientation has a simple identifier and the fan that helps push the hot air away from the card whilst also providing airflow to your CPU.
The underside gives away how the airflow works. The cool air from the bottom of your case is sucked in with the left fan, pushed against the ‘wall’ of the logo we saw above, across the length of the card and past the GPU itself, and then spat out of the other side. The vents underneath – the right hand side here – also help draw cool air in to ensure that your CPU cooler isn’t only getting air that’s been worked hard by your GPU.
It might be the RTX 4060 Ti rather than one of their higher end models, but it sticks rigidly to the somewhat controversial new power connector design. We think at this end of the spectrum Nvidia should return to the regular PCIe connectors instead of forcing people to invest in a new PSU or some adaptor cables.
The business end of the RTX 4060 Ti is the now-standard Nvidia selection of three DisplayPorts and a single HDMI.
