NVIDIA recently launched its GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card, which will clash with the AMD Radeon RX 7600. Another non-Ti variant is expected to launch soon. Till then, reviewers have their hands full with the latest RTX GPU.
ASUS has announced their GeForce RTX 4060 ROG STRIX graphics card featuring the AD107-400 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores, similar to the reference model. ASUS is also planning another variant with the same cooling solution as the premium RTX 4090.
The GeForce RTX 4060 comes in both OC and non-overclocked models. It will be available in tiny and compact ITX variants. The TDP for the standard variant is a mere 115W.
The ASUS ROG STRIX cooler for the GeForce RTX 4060 features a 3-slot design and has a huge dual-heatsink assembly network interconnected by heat pipes. The card, powered by a single 8-pin connector, has a triple-fan layout. The internal heatsink is toned down to make up for costs since the RTX 4060 is not as pricey as the high-end RTX 4090 GPU.
Even after cutting back on costs, the ASUS GeForce RTX 4060 ROG STRIX is a premium graphics card. Its pricing is estimated to be around $399, which is $100 more than the reference model which costs $299. Integrating cool features surely weighs down on the pocket.
With the triple-slot & triple-fan cooler design, the graphics card is expected to run quietly. So, there’s no significant advantage over a reference design if you’re wondering.
Here are the features for the ASUS GeForce RTX 4060 ROG STRIX:
- NVIDIA Ada Lovelace Streaming Multiprocessors: Up to 2X performance and power efficiency
- 4th Generation Tensor Cores: Up to 4x performance with DLSS 3 vs. brute-force rendering
- 3rd Generation RT Cores: Up to 2x ray tracing performance
- Axial-tech fan design: Features a smaller fan hub to increase airflow through the cooling array
- 3.1-slot design: Massive fin array optimized for airflow from the three Axial-tech fans
- Vented backplate: Works in tandem with upgraded Axial-tech fans to maximize heat dissipation
- Digital power control: With high-current power stages and 15K capacitors to fuel maximum performance
- Auto-Extreme precision: Automated manufacturing for higher reliability
- GPU Tweak III: Provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring
The ASUS GeForce RTX 4060 ROG STRIX is a really cool and efficient graphics card. Surely, it is a bit pricey but hopefully, its performance is worth its price. ASUS is yet to announce an official launch date for the GeForce RTX 4060.
