Power the hero in you?
NVIDIA’s RTX 4060 is finally here, with lots of reviews but little enthusiasm. It shares the same AD106 GPU as the RTX 4060 Ti and the same controversial 8GB of GDDR6, though it runs slightly slower at a data rate of 17Gbps. The GPU is also 430MHz lower than the Ti, at 1830MHz. The only trick it has is a 115W TGP which is lower than any other Ada chip, although as Sebastian saw, the actual power consumption is slightly higher. Basically, if you want a little more performance than an RTX 3060 with the power draw of a mobile RTX 3070 Ti, then the RTX 4060 might be good for you.
A rather interesting version has been released, the Zotac GeForce RTX 4060 Spider-Man OC. The card doesn’t have any markings from the webslinger, but the box definitely features artwork from the new movie, and there are tons of stickers and other bling. It’s the first Spiderman-branded card we’ve seen, which makes it somewhat unique. TechPowerUp also found that it’s not only a nice card, the cooler is decent, and if you have an ancient card and are willing to pay $300, the RTX 4060 features NVIDIA’s newest features like DLSS 3 hardware encoding and decoding and AV1.
