We are just 10 days away from the rumored reveal date of the desktop GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card family. As May 24th nears, quite a few of the finer details seem to be coming into clarity. A few hours ago VideoCardz sources told the site that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti with 16GB of VRAM will require an extra 5W from your PSU. Thus, this Ada Lovelace mid-ranger with 16GB is expected to be delivered with a 165W TDP.
The TDP info comes along with some other interesting rumored configuration information via the same source. For example, it is claimed that the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB and RTX 4060 Ti 16GB are both based upon the same board design (PG190).
Despite this, the SKU increments from PG190 361 to PG190 363, says VideoCardz. However, something about the design of the 16GB model seems to have required a GPU tweak. Thus, we will be seeing the GPU codename increment from AD106-350 to AD106-351.
Other than the memory configuration change, the 5W TDP difference, and a few SKU / codename tweaks, there are thought to be no material differences between the 8GB and 16GB models of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. In other words, expect all RTX 4060 Ti variants to have the a CUDA core count of 4,352. Apparently, Nvidia learned a humiliating, hard and expensive lesson during the RTX 4080 12GB debacle.

Our latest table, bursting with Ada Lovelace GPU facts and rumors*, is embedded above. You can see that we have added four members of the GeForce RTX 4060 family, as we now seem to be getting a regular and Ti version of this card in both 8GB and 16GB variations.
While Nvidia is expected to announce all the GeForce RTX 4060 family on Wednesday, May 24, the release may be staggered. First along, this month, should be the RTX 4060 Ti with 8GB. However, those looking for a cheaper entry to the RTX 40 series with the RTX 4060 8GB will have to wait until sometime in July. Similarly, the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB and RTX 4060 16GB models are tipped for a July release.
If you are more interested in the RDNA 3 architecture wares of the red team, there are also rumors that the AMD Radeon RX 7600 (8GB) will debut on May 25.
Whether any of these new mid-rangers, from the green or red teams, will be competitive with the best graphics cards, remains to be seen.
Yeah 12GB needs to be the new minimum if you ask me. 8GB cards are just getting to dated at 1080P. 16GB will soon be needed at even 1080P (arguably now in some fringe cases).
AMD made all this hoopla about their cards having more VRAM, but now they're about to launch an RX 7600 with only 8GB VRAM. What's up with that.
Correct you ADA table and this particular line. There is NO 16GB RTX 4060 (non-Ti) version planned and/or is in Nvidia's roadmap, as of now. The RTX 4060 8GB is tipped for a later July release, not 16GB.
It's up to consumers whether they tolerate it or not, car manufacturers in my country once tried to make "manual air-conditioning" a feature in a "special pack" with other useless things and asked good 20% extra of full price of a car...it did not last long. They are still trying this BS with regular cruise control, some 80+ years old tech...
