What then will be the performance gain?
The other day there were rumors that the GeForce RTX 4070 will receive the same number of CUDA cores as the RTX 3070 . According to new data, the RTX 4060 Ti will have even fewer CUDA cores than the RTX 3060 Ti.
The same insider kopite7kimi says that the RTX 4060 Ti will be based on the AD106-350-A1 GPU with 4352 CUDA cores. In comparison, the RTX 3060 Ti has 4864 CUDA cores.
The novelty will also receive 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 18 GHz, 32 MB of cache memory in the second level and will be characterized by TGP 220 W. In addition, the reference card will receive a very short circuit board.
The situation with the number of CUDA cores seems somewhat strange so far. For example, the RTX 4090 has 1.56 times more CUDA cores than the RTX 3090. The RTX 4080 has only 1.12 times more of them. At the same time, in the first case, the new card is faster than its predecessor (in 4K) by 64%, and in the second case, the difference is already 49%. How much, in this case, the RTX 4060 Ti will outperform the RTX 3060 Ti, one can only guess, but based only on the ratio of CUDA cores, the increase may turn out to be negligible.
Insider kopite7kimi was the first to accurately describe the parameters of the GeForce RTX 30 cards, and he also described the RTX 40 cards more than once. In general, it is one of the most reliable sources in this segment.
