Review: MSI RTX 4060 Ti Gaming X Trio 8G


Temperature, power consumption and noise:

Temperature :

To record temperatures, we opted for the Superposition stress test in Extreme mode. We opted for three 5-minute runs with 10-minute intervals between each test. We took advantage of this benchmark to record the graphics card’s power consumption for the table above.

To find out the Idle temperature, after completing the three stress test loops, we let the card rest for 20 minutes before taking the temperature reading. Bear in mind that most boards benefit from “0 dBa” technology, so the fans cut out below a certain temperature, often between 50 and 55°C. It therefore takes longer to dissipate heat after a period of stress testing or gaming. A card that does not benefit from this technology will be noisier than others at rest. A quick reminder: our temperature readings are taken in Open-Air. In a closed case, the cards will inevitably be warmer.

As we expected, temperatures are excellent, thanks to the proven cooling system. This cooling system should enable us to take advantage of the system’s overclocking potential, but also considerably reduce noise pollution. The fans on our MSI RTX 4060 Ti Gaming X Trio 8G remain idle when temperatures are cool.

Power consumption (entire configuration) :

We use a wattmeter to measure power consumption at the output of our power supply. Our modular power supply is a CORSAIR AX1600i. The result is the average total power consumption of our configuration. Only the graphics card changes between each reading. So it’s easy to calculate the difference between each graphics card.

We suspected as much, but we were pleasantly surprised by the overall power consumption of our MSI RTX 4060 Ti Gaming X Trio 8G configuration, which averaged 237.2 watts. Please note that the benchmark used only applies to the GPU. For gaming use, the overall power consumption of our configuration will be higher, but this applies to all our graphics cards.

This result is an excellent surprise, and in line with the new finesse of the engraving. Our RTX 4060 Ti does almost as well as the RX 6600, which is the best card in our table! As soon as we get our hands on the PCAT tool or the new version of the ElmorLabs PMD Power Measurement Device supporting 12+4 pins, we’ll update this chart again, isolating only the graphics card.
