TECH NEWS – The performance of the non-Ti version may not be up to scratch so this card may see as little interest as the RTX 4080.
Kopite7kimi, who is well-versed in GPUs, has leaked one of Nvidia’s new graphics cards. Previously, we’ve heard something different, which means that those rumors may have been about the RTX 4060 Ti, and now, we’ve listened to details about the non-Ti model. If true, we could discuss a highly watered-down card, as the previous XX60 GPUs were based on the AD106 or AD104 GPU SKU. This one could be based on the AD107.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 can thus use the AD107-400-A1 GPU with the fully enabled AD107 die, making it identical to the laptop version. 24 MB L2 cache, 3072 CUDA cores, 8 GB GDDR6 memory, and 18 Gbps memory speed on the 128-bit bus, providing 288 GB/s bandwidth at a reference TDP of 115W. It suggests that the US price could be around $300-400.
Regarding its performance, it could result in a 30-50% gain over the RTX 3060, as the laptop GPU of the RTX 4060 is 25% faster than the RTX 3060’s 12GB card. The large cache may help at higher resolutions, but it can be said that this card will be usable at 1080p resolution at most. It’s also disappointing that the memory has been reduced compared to the previous 60-series GPU, as we’ve highlighted that the RTX 3060 had 12GB, and the 4060 will only have 8GB! (Also, the bus has been trimmed from 192 to 128 bits…)
Looking at the specs for the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060, you can be prepared to find the RTX 4050 on an even more pared-back AD107 SKU. This card, like the RTX 4060, should be released around the middle of 2023, after the RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Ti. (Good luck to anyone who wants to buy either of these because AI is causing companies to buy Nvidia cards in droves…)
