For those wondering how powerful and what TDP the RTX 4060 Ti will be, you’ve come to the right place.

The internet has been buzzing with the latest news about the RTX 4060 Ti now that the 8GB card has been released. With the specs all in one place, confirmed too, we can take a look at how powerful this latest addition to the 4060 family really is. It’s worth adding that the 4060 Ti 16GB model is due to release some time in July, but we’re unsure whether it’s going to be worth the extra $100. However, if you’re interested we’ve covered where to buy both 4060 Ti models.

RTX 4060 Ti power consumption

The RTX 4060 Ti 8GB has an average gaming power of 110W. The RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will have an average gaming power of 140W.

Compared to the RTX 4070 which has an average gaming power of 186W, and the RTX 4070 Ti, which has an average gaming power of 226W, this puts the RTX 4060 Ti some ways behind the other GPUs in the series.

However, if we take a look at the power consumption of the 3060 and 3060 Ti, we start to see some smaller margins. the RTX 3060 had a graphics card power of 170W, while the RTX 3060 Ti had a graphics card power of 200W. At the end of the day, only time will tell if the RTX 4060 Ti low power consumption will prove a sink or swim for gamers.

RTX 4060 Ti TDP

Meanwhile, Nvidia has confirmed that the TDP for the Ti (both versions) will be 165W or 160W. Meanwhile, the vanilla 4060 has a TDP of 115W. This comes in well under the RTX 4070 Ti, which had a TDP of 285W, and the RTX 4070 which had a TDP of 250W. That being said, it was expected that a 4060 Ti would be less powerful the 4070 Ti or 4070 due to its more mid-range nature. If it’s time to get a new PSU, we’ve rounded up the best PSU for RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know many people have questions that they want to be answered with a release like this. With that in mind, we’ve done our best here to answer some of your most pressing queries.

Is high TDP bad?

High TDP generally means greater power consumption by the GPU which can be seen as a sign of better performance due to the greater processing power. However, higher TDP also means that you have to be more careful of the amount of heat your processor is generating and make sure that you have an appropriate cooling system in place.

How much power consumption did the RTX 4070 Ti have?

The RTX 4070 Ti had a maximum power consumption of 200W. As the RTX 4060 Ti is a more mid-range model, it follows that the average gaming power of this GPU would be lower than its predecessor.
