Specification-wise, the Geforce RTX 4060 Ti is based on AD106 GPU with 34 SMs, adding up to 4352 CUDA cores, 34 RT cores, 136 Tensor cores, and 48 ROPs. The reference version, or in this case the Founders Edition, will boost up to 2535MHz. It has 22 TFLOPs of compute shared performance with 51 TFLOPs of RT performance. As announced earlier, the Geforce RTX 4060 Ti has 32MB of L2 cache, and will be available with 8GB and 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, paired up with a 128-bit memory interface, leaving it with 288GB/s of memory bandwidth (544 GB/s effective).
Bear in mind that the 16GB version is coming in July. The TGP is set at 160W and it uses a 12VHPWR connector.
Performance-wise, the RTX 4060 Ti is currently holding its ground in the mid-range market, and Nvidia is comparing it to the previous generation graphics cards, the RTX 3060 and the RTX 2060, which is obviously not the way to go. It is faster than the RTX 3060 Ti, but not by much, as you are looking at about a 10 percent performance increase in raster performance, and it drops even lower at higher resolutions. It is also about 10 percent slower than the RTX 3070 Ti, and the closest last-generation card is the RTX 3070 8GB.
When ray tracing comes into play, the gap is somewhat wider, as its Ada Lovelace GPU and 3rd gen RT cores do a much better job at RT, and the RTX 3060 Ti is left further behind. With DLSS 3, which is Nvidia's ace in the sleeve, the RTX 4060 Ti almost doubles its performance in some games, which puts it in line with much more expensive cards, like the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti.
As said, Nvidia is currently holding its place in the mid-range market with the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB graphics card, and both the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB and the RTX 4060 (non-Ti) are coming in July, priced at $499 and $299, respectively. AMD's Radeon RX 7600 launch is just around the corner and it could be hitting the market at $269, undercutting Nvidia's RTX 4060, but we will wait to see some performance numbers.
Nvidia has a big selling point with RT and DLSS 3, and this is probably the sole reason, alongside the lack of competition, why we did not see the RTX 4060 Ti launch at a lower price point, as the $399 starting price might sound a bit too steep. Of course, this gives Nvidia a bit of room to breathe as it can always drop the price in the future if AMD manages to put some pressure on its lineup.
