Another example of the failure of the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti 8GB.

The game was a PS5 exclusive

The authors of TechPowerUp evaluated the performance of the game Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, which recently ceased to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive and was released on PC. And the test results were very interesting.

Without ray tracing, the game is not particularly demanding. Even the RTX 3050 in Full HD provides 40 fps, and the coveted 60 fps can already be obtained on the RTX 4060.

In 4K, the situation is, of course, different. Here, for 30 fps, you need something at the level of the RTX 3060 Ti, and 60 fps are provided by cards no lower than the RX 6900 XT.

Another example of the failure of the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti 8GB.

But it’s more interesting to return to Full HD and look at the charts more closely. You can see that the RTX 3060 Ti is nominally, but still ahead of the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB, and the RTX 4060 is already quite noticeably slower than the RTX 3060. That is, in this particular game, the new Nvidia adapters look as bad as possible. In fairness, it’s bad compared to its predecessors, since AMD’s lower-end cards also don’t shine in comparison with competitors from the Nvidia camp.

It should also be noted here that the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB, even at this resolution, is not only better than the 8 GB version but is strikingly better. Up to the point that the first bypasses even the RTX 3070 Ti, and noticeably! The novelty still falls short of the cheaper RX 6700 XT, but it looks great against the background of related cards.

Another interesting aspect: is the minimum frames per second. Here, AMD video cards look fantastic and better than their competitors. In Full HD, even the RX 6800 XT is faster than the RTX 4090, which is nonsense. In 4K, the situation is somewhat different, but still with a large margin in favor of Radeon video cards.

But for some reason, AMD adapters in this game do not support ray tracing, although this is a PS5 game, where this very tracing is implemented based on AMD GPUs!

4060 vs. 3060 ti

The RTX 4060 and RTX 3060 Ti are both mid-range graphics cards from Nvidia. The 4060 is the successor to the 3060 Ti, and it offers a significant performance improvement.

Here is a table comparing the two cards:

Feature RTX 4060 RTX 3060 Ti
Architecture Ada Lovelace Ampere
SMs 3072 4864
Memory 12GB GDDR6 8GB GDDR6
Boost clock speed 2.5 GHz 1.7 GHz
TDP 170-220W 220W
Launch date Q3 2023 Q2 2020
Price $300-399 $399-499

As you can see, the RTX 4060 has several advantages over the RTX 3060 Ti, including:

  • More SMs, which means more processing power
  • More memory, which is important for high-resolution gaming and ray-tracing
  • A faster boost clock speed, which can lead to higher frame rates

In terms of performance, the RTX 4060 is around 20% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti at 1080p and 1440p. This means that it can handle even the most demanding games at high settings.

The RTX 4060 also has a lower price than the RTX 3060 Ti, making it a more affordable option for gamers.

So, which card is right for you? If you’re looking for the best possible performance, then the RTX 4060 is the way to go. However, if you’re on a budget, the RTX 3060 Ti is still a great option.
