The highly-anticipated GeForce RTX 4060 from NVIDIA is rumored to be powered by the new AD106 GPU with Ada Lovelace architecture. Leaked 3DMark results indicate that the AD106 GPU features 4,608 CUDA cores, 2,535 MHz clock speed, 128-bit memory bus, and a power consumption of only 180W. This suggests that the GeForce RTX 4060 will perform similarly to the RTX 3070 Ti but with a lower power consumption of 27%.
Twitter user Harukaze5719 posted the comparison between the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (GA104 GPU) and the GeForce RTX 20 Series (TU104 GPU) in a graph. However, the exact competition for the RTX 4060 remains uncertain as both the GA104 and TU104 GPUs are found in various NVIDIA models. Regardless, the expected release of the RTX 4060 has generated excitement for the upcoming graphics card showdown between NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel’s Arc line. NVIDIA is also expected to leverage its DLSS technology, including the new DLSS 3, to boost the RTX 4060’s performance, giving it an edge over the competition.
