The RTX 4060 Ti is back in the news via its supposed performance. Indeed, new rumors are surfacing and this time, Kopite7Kimi indicates that the card would be on par with the RTX 3070. Of course, all these are just rumors to be taken with a pinch of salt.
RTX 4060 Ti, performance equivalent to the RTX 3070?
Roughly speaking, with this card, NVIDIA would offer us a mid-range reference. It would have an AD106-350 GPU composed of 34 SM and 4352 cuda core. If the L2 cache is established at 32 MB, the memory, on the other hand, is reduced. Indeed, the bandwidth would be only 288 GB / s through the use of 8 GB of GDDR6 based on a bus of 128 bits. To get an idea, the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 offer 448 GB/s of bandwidth against.
It is probably this aspect that could severely limit the card on high resolutions. NVIDIA could well position its card as a model designed for 1080p or 1440p without expecting ultra detail levels at 165 Hz on the most demanding games! Moreover, the famous leaker Kopite7Kimi indicates performance equivalent to the RTX 3070!

Now we just have to see the price positioning and it is this aspect that makes us a little afraid. With its RTX 40, let’s not mince words, but NVIDIA is stuffing itself. It would not be surprising to see this model positioned at the level of the 3070 ($499). Indeed, the picture that seems to be painted is:
- RTX 4070 Ti: $799
- RTX 4070 : $599
We could potentially see this 4060 Ti at $499 when the RTX 3060 Ti was launched at $399. In short, it’s not really what you’d call a “good deal”, especially for mid-range, might as well go for RTX 3000s at this point… But these are just rumors and counter analysis, now we just have to see what will really happen!
