4060Ti 8GB reviews out


Recommended Posts

Quote

Conclusion

As an objective assessment, the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB exhibits very respectable performance, especially within a Full HD and even 2560x1440 mindset. Its shader engine performance is satisfactory, and the addition of DLSS3 and frame generation aid substantially improves its functionality. NVIDIA continues to lead in raw Raytracing performance. This graphics card's 32MB L3 cache is particularly effective at this resolution, though cache misses can result in the system resorting to a narrower 128-bit wide bus with only 8GB of graphics memory. However, at QHD and UHD you're bound to run into memory limitations, also keep in mind that DLSS frame generation will consume VRAM when used. While this could potentially cause issues, the card seems to handle such scenarios well. The RTX 4060 Ti 8GB graphics card boasts enough performance, solid build quality, and appealing aesthetics. However, its pricing is a notable drawback. With a price tag of $399, it is considered far too expensive for a mainstream product.

At low res, it can perform like a 3070. In high res it's worse than a 1080Ti, occasionally even worse than a 1070.

It's like Nvidia every couple months sends me a reminder that I don't need to have any buyers remorse over switching teams. Thanks Nvidia.

How did Guru3D give it 4 stars and a recommendation when it performs similarly to the same class card from 2 years ago at the same price? Worse if you're still on a PCIE-3.0 board because the card only has 8 lanes. 

 

They keep cutting down the costs yet the charge the same price. Doesn't add up. This shouldn't be more than $300 in today's market.

Looks like its about on par with a 5700XT or 6700XT ish from AMD.  Definitely seems to be a tad weak for that performance bracket.  Obviously Nvidia's pricing is outrageous.  Yeah, I'm not interested in anything Nvidia anymore honestly after this generation.  Normally I don't really care that much between brands (I tend to go AMD because of my collections).  But this, this is getting to be stupid.

Just a quick note, $400 today would be about $280 in pre pandemic-greedflation numbers. It's still a pathetic card, but the price isn't quite as bad as it looks.

Where'd you get that figure?

 

$400 in 2023 is about $346 in 2020 money and $338 in 2019 money.

 

Anyway, another pathetic showing from Nvidia. 4060 Ti is nothing but at best maybe a misbranded (and clearly mispriced) 4060. Though that 128-bit bus makes it seem even worse. No excuse for a 2023 product at $400 to have those issues. We can go back and talk about cache sure, but AMD clearly realized cache doesn't fix everything after RDNA2 and that's why you saw RDNA3 increase its bus width again and actually reduce total infinity cache from what RDNA2 had.

 

Just pathetic Nvidia.

I read that Jayztwocents removed his video. Not that I watch his content, not my cup of tea but it’s popping up in my feed.

 

Even TechPowerUp removed the “Recommended” at the end of the written review.

 

Not sure why the reviews are all wishy washy. Yes the market is frustrating but when a GPU has 128-bit bus, 8 lanes, 8 GB of VRAM, small die, yet they want $400+, you really don’t have to do whole lot of testing to know this thing will buckle under high resolutions. Have we gone mental? *in Gordon Ramsay’s voice*. 
 

Reviewers need to call it out. Consumers will follow. Otherwise the trust is broken.

 

This class of card should easily handle modest 4K game or maxed out 1440p. @ $400.

 

The fact that it performs worse than a 3060 Ti in 4K in some titles is simply disgusting.

 

And they want $500 for 16GB of VRAM LOL. I used to love the mid end but this gen looked like a dumpster

when the rumours were rolling out last year. Unfortunately they all came true.
 

Sure, maybe DLSS 3 justifies that the overall experience can be better than last gen GPUs for some gamers but common, we all know this class of card really can’t take advantage of that feature fully. Especially with only ~40 games utilizing it. Not to mention that DLSS 3 should be able to run on Ampere… Just a lot of caveats around it makes it hard to call it a selling feature today.

 

Honestly, the revenue from the data centre / corporate / “AI” market must be stellar because I don’t know why Nvidia is shooting themselves in the foot.

 

Reminds me of Intel before Zen came out. Age of Nvidia stagnation inbound? I hope not.

I saw a listing of the JayzTwoCents video on YouTube this morning before it got pulled and even opened it to see that it was someone else on his team—his camera guy, from what I understand—doing the actual review. I didn't actually watch it though. At the time, the comments weren't blistering...yet, but there were already some criticisms about how it was so incongruent from other 4060 Ti reviews.

 

I told my friend that the 3060 Ti I sold him for $300 at the beginning of the year actually gained value after this release. Probably not literally true, but figuratively? Sure. The 4060 Ti provides no meaningful gain in games you would plan to play with a mid-range card like that, and regardless of new vs. used, it's 33% more than what he paid for the 3060 Ti. The second-hand market pricing adapts to the perceived value of the latest generation, and the 3060 Ti isn't looking any worse or more outdated after this release.

 

How is the 4060 Ti actually slower than a 1080 Ti from 2017 at 4K? Even the 3060 Ti outperformed the 1080 Ti in practically every scenario.

 

I don't like how a 128-bit memory bus reads on a spec sheet and I've always had a bias against GPUs with them. In terms of direct successors of a card I once owned, this is along the lines of the memory bus being slashed from the GTX 760 to 960, but worse. The results here are truly embarrassing considering what's at stake nowadays.

Reviewers for a long time have gone on to just say "its expensive" and "recommended" in the same review. 

 

Reviewers really dropped the ball when this all started in Kepler with the GTX 680 clearly not being the actual replacement for the GTX 580. That came later with the 780 Ti, yet they gave them a pass and we got a decade of what we got.

It's basically a 3060 variant/refresh with DLSS3 tacked on, but because DLSS3 does use some amount of Vram, it can't really help the 4060Ti get to 4K when it runs out of Vram well before that. It might be able to take a game running at 1080p or 1440p and double the frame rate, but since it already performs well at low res, so what? If you can't use the upscaling to get to 4K, it's pointless.

 

It really is mindboggling. I usually like to argue devil's advocate but there is just nothing that can be said to defend this card. 

 

4060 and up should have been 12GBs

4070 should have been 16GBs

4080 should have been 20GBs

 

Would have thought Nvidia would try to redesign their GPUs to be more flexible on ram sizes after the 3000 series cards. I'm not that technical, but AMD figured it out soo.... 

It seems like it would have been such low hanging fruit for Nvidia to just no skimp on Vram this time and have huge success in the market, but instead another failed series is just going to lead to them lowering production to inflate the prices most likely.

Nothing to figure out here. This is literally just cheapening out on $20 of additional RAM and building the dies to have a normal number of memory controllers. They cheapened out plain and simple and thought adding additional cache would "fix".

 

Meanwhile charging more than ever for the privilege. 

 

I wish AMD would price their stuff appropriately at launch. They don't have feature parity with Nvidia, but have been content to just slot into Nvidia's price points rather than do anything to drive a real competition in pricing. It's nice to see the 7900 XT now in a much better price point than what it launched at, but sounds like the upcoming 7600 XT might fall into the same pricing nonsense for an 8GB card in 2023.
