Lenovo's gaming manager for desktop products has revealed new information regarding the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 To Offer Sweet Spot Gaming Performance & High Efficiency Around $350 US
Based on a statement published by Lenovo's manager, WolStame at Weibo, the company rep has spilled the beans on NVIDIA's next-gen mainstream graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4060. The new graphics card is said to launch next year and will offer a decent performance boost but will have to rely heavily on DLSS and RT performance for bigger gains.

Many friends said to wait for 4060, although I don’t know what 4060 looks like, let me make a guess.
- 1. The performance is 20% stronger than 3060, which is about equal to
- 2. The power consumption is lower than that of 3060. It is easier to estimate 150-180w.
- 3. The price is about 10% higher than that of 3060. The price of 3060ti
- 4 dlss3 nvemc has been improved
- 5 618 will be released next year
so if my guess is right, there is no need to wait for 4060. I spent more than half a year on 3060ti to buy a 3070 and come back. What’s the point? It’s better to buy a mine now Card 3080 play.
The rumored details suggest that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 would be 20% faster in gaming than the RTX 3060 and would end up around the same as RTX 3070. It is not mentioned if this is standard or the Ti-model of the 3060 that the 4060 has been compared against. The pricing has also been raised by 10% so if we consider the MSRP of the RTX 3060 at $329 US (launch), we can expect a price close to $350 US. That's $50 US cheaper than the RTX 3060 Ti (399 US MSRP), and $150 US cheaper than the RTX 3070 ($499 US MSRP).
It is also highlighted that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 will offer great power efficiency with a TGP rating of around 150-180W. Currently, the RTX 3060 is rated at 170W and the Ti model is rated at 200W. So if we end up getting RTX 3070 performance at 150W, that would be a huge boost in gen-over-gen efficiency. Furthermore, the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 have proved that TGP figures are the max potential wattage that a graphics chip can consume and both cards don't never hit that figure during gaming workloads.
Lastly, while the 20% performance boost over the RTX 3060 series is small, the card will leverage DLSS 3 and enhanced ray tracing capabilities which would further uplift its performance over its predecessor. The card is expected to go on sale next year around mid-2023 after the launch of the RTX 4070 Ti in early 2023.
