The new card comes in at a much more reasonable $399, which is obviously a far cry from that of the flagship cards these days, but still, the cost of parts, and just inflation in general makes this one of the more expensive “budget” cards we’ve seen in a while. If you’re still rocking an RTX 3000 series card or their AMD equivalent, the upgrade may not be worth it, albeit some new technologies and power consumption are advantages to consider. However, for those on pre-COVID era cards still, this is going to be a pretty potent investment.
When it comes to gaming at Full HD, it’s clear that this card absolutely smashes it, delivering high frame rates for those of you with high refresh rate monitors. In terms of value for money, the 4060 Ti offers the best we’ve seen across two major countries and 3 resolutions and while we may look at street pricing in some future content, MSRP is the clearest way to see how NVIDIA has intended to position their card at the time of launch. The added value, and of course, the added performance now offered by technologies such as DLSS, especially the frame generation of DLSS 3 is giving lesser cards some insanely impressive performance potential too, further enhancing their value for money.
When it comes to gaming at 1440 or 2K resolution, things are good again, with the card averaging around 100 FPS across all our tested games. It’s certainly a good match for those running something like a 2560 x 1440 or even a 3440 x 1440 display and wanting to game above 100 FPS with minor settings tweaks and DLSS if you want to go further.
For 4K, you’re not out of steam here yet, with many games averaging close to the 60 FPS ideal minimum. Even in Cyberpunk, we hit 45 FPS with Ultra RT and DLSS at 4K, which could easily be tweaked to get closer to 60, although for me, the 2K resolution mode for more frames is the sweet spot. However, still a superior 4K experience than consoles, that’s for damn sure, given the maxed-out quality settings.
It will be interesting to see how the extra $100 for more VRAM makes a difference if any in most titles, especially at 1080p when that launches next month, and also how things compare to what’s next from AMD which will be seen by you guys very very soon so make sure you’re subscribed for that. It’s nice to see how things line up on the lower, more mainstream end of the market as it’s been quite some time since we’ve seen anything that’s within the reach for most consumers as not everyone can afford a $700+ GPU like we’ve seen from both AMD and NVIDIA in the last year.
The 4060 Ti should sell extremely well as there are still GTX 1060 users who have been sitting and waiting for this upgrade, and at $399 I think it’s going to be very hard to beat, but who knows? Maybe AMD will pull something out of the bag, or maybe the even lower-end RTX 4060 non-Ti will offer even better value for money at $299. Time will tell… and so will we when it launches! For now though, the RTX 4060 Ti is a great option for PC gamers.
