Recently, the “product planning manager” of Lenovo’s gaming computer department in China, information about GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card has published
The GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card will most likely be equipped with a weakened version of the AD106 processor with a reduced number of cores, and Nvidia will abandon the full version of this processor for the RTX 4060 Ti graphics card in the future. Until now, no detailed specifications of this graphics card have been published, even unofficially. Of course, Nvidia’s board partners, such as Lenovo, have more and more reliable information about this graphics card, especially if the source of information is Lenovo’s product planning manager!
As we said, the product planning manager of Lenovo’s gaming computer division has published information about the specifications and approximate performance of the RTX 4060 graphics card, as well as its possible price. Of course, the announced numbers are not based on exact specifications and are only approximate. Although WolStame (Lenovo’s programming manager Weibo account) has been pretty accurate in the past, we have to be a little more cautious about what he says this time around.
GeForce RTX 4060, a slight improvement over the RTX 3060
The RTX 4060 graphics card is supposed to be about 20 percent faster than the RTX 3060 and offer the same performance as the RTX 3070 graphics card. As we already guessed, the RTX 4060 series is not that much of a major upgrade over the RTX 3060 series, at least not as major as the RTX 4090/4080 series. In fact, Nvidia’s most popular and best-selling graphics card series has undergone only a 20% upgrade in the new generation.
WolStem predicts that the RTX 4060 graphics card will be about 10% more expensive than the RTX 3060 Ti, which still has a high price, but the MSRP at the time of launch was $399; This means that the price of RTX 4060 should start from $439. This price increase is mostly due to the DLSS 3 technology and the upgrade of the NVENC encoder to support the AV1 codec.
The good news is that the energy consumption of the RTX 4060 graphics card will be lower than the 170-watt RTX 3060 graphics card, so the laptop version of this graphics card can transform the performance of mid-range gaming laptops. As WolStem says, the RTX 4060 graphics card will be unveiled and released in June 2023.
