The future RTX 4060 Ti already promises that it will not explode your electricity bill, if we are to believe initial information about its energy consumption. It would even be less greedy than the previous generation.
After the release of RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 Ti, Nvidia is now preparing to launch a brand new RTX 4060 Ti that is even more affordable, but above all will cost you less in electricity. According to Kopite7kimi, a famous hardware leaker, the company has changed the TDP specifications for its upcoming mid-range GPU.
According to his information, Nvidia has lowered the TDP of its upcoming graphics card from 220W to just 160W. This is therefore much less than the previous generation RTX 3060 Ti, which required 200 W of power. However, this does not necessarily mean that the card will perform less well.
The RTX 4060 Ti consumes significantly less than other Nvidia cards
With a TDP of only 160 W, compared to 285 W for the RTX 4070 Ti Sitting just above it, the RTX 4060 Ti promises to be a great card for those looking for a GPU that can play the latest games in Full HD, and watch their electricity bill.
When it comes to other graphics card specs, we expect half the memory bus and fewer cores than the RTX 3060 Ti. Nvidia should also revise the bandwidth downwards, 288 GB / s only (the RTX 3060 Ti has 608 or 448 GB/s depending on the SKU).
We should know more about it quickly, since Nvidia should unveil the new graphics card at the end of the first quarter of 2023. The latter would not arrive alone, since it would be accompanied by a non-ti RTX 4070. We hope that its price will be interesting, since Nvidia recently succeeded in bringing down the manufacturing cost of its GPUs more upscale. If you can’t wait until then, we remind you that we thoroughly tested the recent RTX 4070 Ti.
