NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 4060 alongside the 4060 Ti earlier today. Based on the AD107 die, the RTX 4060 features 3,072 FP32 cores paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 17Gbps. The GPU has a bus width of 128-bit and an L2 cache of 24MB. The graphics core operates at a base clock of 1.83GHz and a boost of 2.46GHz, drawing up to 115W of power under load. Unexpectedly, it will be priced less than its predecessor, at $299 only, with a planned launch in July 2023.

Looking at first-party benchmarks, we can see that the RTX 4060 is only 10-20% faster than its predecessor but offers substantially higher compute throughput.
In most games, the performance gains are under 20%, which makes us wonder if these are nerfed to accommodate the lower price tiers.
The GeForce RTX 4060 is slated to hit the retail market sometime in July.
