Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti and GeForce RTX 4060 with ray tracing and DLSS 3 support launched in India


The company on Thursday launched the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 and GeForce RTX 4060 Ti as the company’s latest graphics cards built on the existing Ada Lovelace architecture. The more powerful GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is available in 8GB and 16GB memory configurations, while the RTX 4060 model is available in 8GB. Both models support Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) for more than 300 games as well as upcoming titles like The Lord of the Rings: Gollum and Diablo IV.

The company says that the new GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card is 1.7 times faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti model. It has 8GB or 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, along with 32MB of L2 cache. Meanwhile, the GeForce RTX 4060 model has 24MB of L2 cache and is available in an 8GB memory configuration.

The company says these chips are aimed at gamers, video editors, 3D artists, and other content creators such as broadcasters, who would see 40 percent better encoding efficiency, with Nvidia’s eighth NVENC video codec. Likewise, 3D artists will see 45 percent faster performance compared to last year’s RTX 3060 series GPU, according to Nvidia.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti pricing starts at Rs. 41,000 for the model with 8GB of video memory, and it goes on sale May 24. The price of the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB variant is Rs. 51,000 and will go on sale in July, along with an RTX 4060 GPU with 8GB of memory, priced at Rs. 31,000. For comparison, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti pricing starts at Rs. 80,000 while the RTX 4070 starts at Rs. 62,000.

Nvidia says its new GPUs based on the company’s Ada Lovelace architecture are equipped with a third-generation ray tracing (RT) core and fourth-generation Tensor cores — the latter intended to speed up AI tasks, including Nvidia’s own frame-multiplying DLSS 3 technology. . The company says it has added improvements such as rearranging the implementation of shaders, micromap transparency, and offset micro-grid engines to improve ray tracing performance over the previous generation.

Earlier this year, Nvidia announced its GeForce RTX 4070 Ti desktop graphics processor in January at CES 2023, months after the company “cancelled” the launch of the company’s GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB) model following negative press and consumer outcry. The new GeForce RTX 4070 Ti GPU, which is also based on the Ada Lovelace architecture like the GeForce RTX 4060 series, was priced significantly lower at launch than the company’s previous “unlaunched” product.

Google I/O 2023 saw the search giant tell us over and over again that it cares about AI, along with the launch of its first Pixel-branded foldable phone and tablet. This year, the company will power its apps, services, and Android operating system with artificial intelligence technology. We discuss this and more on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast.
