Nvidia RTX 4060Ti to launch at $399 and $499. Will people buy it?

The pricing of the new generation GPUs is something that has been a problem since the launch of RTX 4090. The absurd pricing continued even with RTX 4070. Consumers showed that RTX 4070 at $599 won’t work and Nvidia quickly cut the price on it.

As we wait for RTX 4060Ti and RTX 4060 – a hope for the value-budget segment, things do not look that good. According to the latest leak by MEGAsizeGPU, the RTX 4060Ti 8 GB will be launched at $399 (approx. ₹38,700) which will be available on May 24. The RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will be launched at (approx. ₹48,500) and will be available later in July.

Even though RTX 4060Ti 8GB is priced the same as the previous generation RTX 3060Ti, people don’t seem to be so stoked about it. Many reports are pointing towards a performance close to RTX 3070 which is about 18% faster than RTX 3060 Ti.

On paper, this looks like a decent value but we will leave it for you to decide based on the actual performance when the card comes out. Even if we can vouch for the 8 GB version, the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB variant is too expensive just for the increased VRAM capacity. The specifications on both of them are identical and the only difference is the VRAM capacity and it is priced 100$ higher than the 8GB variant.

The Geekbench results indicate 34 Multiprocessor Count, verifying 4352 CUDA cores, and 8 GB of VRAM clocked at 18 Gbps. The highest boost clock is 2.54 GHz, however, this may vary according to the SKU, so we may see higher and lower boost clocks. In CUDA, the tested graphics card receives 146170 points.

Geekbench 5 results place it just above the RTX 3060 Ti and are only 9% faster. However, this is not gaming performance, so things might look different in games.

Given the price-sensitive market mood, there is a chance that Nvidia would lower the price at the last moment but it doesn’t seem likely. Personally, I think RTX 4060 Ti 8GB version has some merit to it the price seems much more reasonable, at least comparatively. The 16 GB version on the other hand is just terrible.
