Game Ready For The GeForce RTX 4060

In May we announced the GeForce RTX 4060 Family, and launched the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. Today, the GeForce RTX 4060 goes on sale, with prices starting at $299. For gamers playing on previous-gen GPUs, the NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture at the heart of the GeForce RTX 4060 delivers a massive upgrade, multiplying your performance, and supercharging creative apps. And thanks to the Ada architecture’s industry-leading efficiency, you’ll use measurably less power, your graphics card will run cooler, and fans will run at quieter speeds or even idle.


“Unleash the GeForce RTX 4060 in Dying Light 2 Stay Human and high frame rates at max settings is no sweat" - Tomasz Szałkowski, Rendering Director, Techland.

Based on the May 2023 Steam Hardware Survey, 9 of the top 10 most used GPUs on Steam are 60 Class or lower, and 77% of Steam gamers play at 1080p or lower resolutions. For these gamers, the new GeForce RTX 4060 is a great upgrade, enabling them to play new, more demanding games at 1080p at excellent levels of fidelity. For gamers coming from a GeForce RTX 2060, performance is multiplied by an average of 2.3X across a suite of 18 games, and for GeForce GTX 1060 users, in addition to higher frame rates, they also get ray tracing and DLSS acceleration for the first time.

These substantial improvements enable you to enjoy the majority of games at high frames with max settings including ray tracing. And thanks to NVIDIA DLSS 3, you can experience some of the industry’s most advanced games running at over 100 FPS, at the highest possible detail levels.

"DLSS 3 enables the RTX 4060 to deliver amazing ray-traced performance in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide" - Mikael Hansson, Chief Technical Officer, Fatshark

Thanks to the Ada architecture’s industry-leading efficiency, the average gamer playing 10-20 hours a week could save a significant amount at recent energy prices, while having a vastly superior gaming experience. In Germany, for example, a gamer playing 20 hours a week could save up to $132 in energy costs over the course of 4 years, when upgrading from an RTX 3060 to an RTX 4060.

And see what some of the press have to say about the GeForce RTX 4060

  • “Anyone upgrading from a 1050, 1060, 1650, 1660, or 2060 card will get a nice upgrade” - Ars Technica
  • “For starters, it's a great upgrade from the RTX 3060 at least if you're looking to trade up already. If you've been holding onto an older card and are looking at getting into 1080p gaming - especially with ray tracing, it's a no brainer…” -
  • “For gamers who haven't upgraded, if you want the best GPU feature set available today on the Ada Lovelace chips, then the RTX 4060 is worth its mainstream pricing” - Wccftech
