Nvidia RTX 4060

If you are looking for the latest news regarding the Nvidia RTX 4060, then you are at the right place.

The biggest news in the gaming sector currently is none other than the release of rumors about the upcoming RTX series graphics card by Nvidia, and we have got some exciting and possibly bad news on this.

So the news about the upcoming RTX 4000 series card is circulating on the internet nowadays and a few details about the Nvidia RTX 4060 have been leaked and got the whole PC gaming fans talking.

About the Nvidia RTX 4060 leak

The news leak has been made by Kopite7kimi, who has previously leaked many hardware news in the past. In his recent tweet, he mentioned that apart from the actual release date of the card, he cares about the performance improvement that the Nvidia RTX 4060 is going to deliver, considering its higher power consumption that surpasses the previous generation Nvidia RTX 3070.

How much power is the Nvidia RTX 4060 going to need?

As per the given details, it seems like the Nvidia RTX 4060’s power requirement needs will either surpass the Nvidia RTX 3070 or equal it. For a general idea and comparison, the previous generations of XX60 cards, like the Nvidia RTX 2060 and the Nvidia RTX 3060 drew 160W and 170W, respectively. And as the tweet mentions, the Nvidia RTX 4060 is going to draw more power than the RTX 3070, which is known for its high power consumption of 220W. So technically speaking, the Nvidia RTX 4060 is going to draw more than 220W, which is a massive leap in power requirement considering it is an XX60 segment card.

As per the leaks and the rumors that are circulating around the internet, the first card that is going to be released might be the higher-end ones. The Nvidia RTX 4090 is supposed to launch this October, that is in 2022, followed by the consecutive launches of the Nvidia RTX 4080 in November and the Nvidia RTX 4070 in December. It is highly likely that the Nvidia RTX 4060 is going to be released in the initial period of the first quarter of 2023, which should be somewhere around January 2023. Again, no news has been remotely confirmed by any official announcement by Nvidia.

What is the bottom line here- A performance increment?

We somewhat expected to see a power leap between the previous generation and the new generation cards in the XX60 segment, however, very few of us were expecting to see a difference in power levels greater than the RTX 3070.

Someone has said somewhere, that with great power consumption comes great performance, or so have I heard. The earlier generation of high-tier GPUs had extremely higher power consumption but nowadays, that has not been the case, as various power input level performance improvements were made. So, generally, the new class of GPU delivers far better performance to power input requirements.

But with the higher power consumption, we might very well see a massive improvement in the overall GPU performance. We can very well see the RTX 4060 delivering high FPS in higher resolution, meaning proper higher detailed, 2K gaming on a budget is no more a mere dream. Now, the major worry regarding this launch is going to be its price point and its availability in the market. The GPU prices have been higher than ever and it is really sad to witness such a downfall in the gaming industry, with an increased amount of scalpers and higher charges for the same GPU, up to 100-150% of its original value.
