Game Ready For The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti

The GeForce RTX 40 Series is welcoming new additions, beginning May 24th with the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, a 1080p performance champ that starts at $399.  

In July, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti with 16GB arrives, starting at $499, featuring additional graphics memory but otherwise identical specifications. And rounding out the family is the GeForce RTX 4060, a high-performing 1080p card also available in July that starts at just $299.

The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace architecture offers a substantial upgrade, enabling you to supercharge your performance in the latest games and creative apps.

The RTX 4060 Ti is up to 2.6X faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER with Frame Generation, and 1.6X without Frame Generation, thanks to the Ada architecture, Shader Execution Reordering, NVIDIA DLSS 3 and other innovations. Together, they enable the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti to run many of today’s graphically advanced games at over 100 FPS with ray tracing enabled:

The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti includes all the same advancements, enhancements, and innovations as other GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, granting you access to a massive ecosystem of technologies and features that improve your gaming experiences, productivity, and creativity. And like other GeForce RTX 40 Series cards, it’s highly efficient when gaming, and sips power when idling, chatting, or streaming.

Today, 4 out of the 5 most popular GPUs are GeForce 60-class products, and 77% of gamers play at 1080p or lower resolutions. If you’re one of these gamers, the GeForce RTX 4060 Family is a great upgrade, enabling you to enjoy the latest games with fast, fluid frame rates. Reviews agree:

  • “...we would fully recommend the RTX 4060 Ti for a high-end 1080p gaming PC” - PCMag
  • “This GPU excels at 1080p, attaining triple-digit performance.” - Dexerto
  • “It's a great 1080p performer that punches well above its weight class even before you enable the black magic that is DLSS 3 in games that support the feature.” -
  • “…the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti is remarkably efficient while remaining cool and quiet.” - TweakTown
  • "... for anyone that didn't dip their toes into either the RTX 30 or RX 6000-series, the RTX 4060 Ti is going to represent a great mid-range upgrade. Bringing with it the twin pillars of DLSS 3 and Frame Generation, it has the potential to deliver a gaming experience that feels truly next-gen." - PC Gamer

Game Ready For The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™

Based on the books by J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ is a story-driven stealth adventure game from Daedalic Entertainment, creators of Deponia and many other highly regarded titles. Take on a perilous journey as the deformed and twisted Gollum, chasing the only thing that’s precious to him: the One Ring. Available May 25th, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ launches with support for DLSS 3, NVIDIA DLAA, NVIDIA Reflex, and ray-traced shadows and reflections.


In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™, GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers can multiply performance with DLSS 3. At 4K, performance on the GeForce RTX 4090 increases by 3.5X, enabling 169 frames per second with every setting maxed out, and all ray tracing options enabled. The GeForce RTX 4080 can hit 123 FPS, a 3.8X increase; the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti sees a 3.9X speedup, for 100 FPS gameplay; the GeForce RTX 4070 receives a 3.8X boost, giving it a 79 FPS result in our benchmark.

On GeForce RTX 40 Series laptops, DLSS 3 improves performance by an average of 2.5X at 2560x1440 with max settings and ray tracing enabled. At 1080p, DLSS 3 helps all RTX 40 Series laptop GPUs to run at over 90 FPS, with the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU topping 200 FPS!

With such fast frame rates on many GPUs, you may want to enhance image quality with NVIDIA DLAA, an AI-based anti-aliasing mode that utilizes the same technology developed for DLSS. DLAA uses a native resolution image to maximize image quality, and in The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ DLAA can be combined with DLSS Frame Generation for great image quality and excellent performance.  

To make gameplay even more responsive, gamers with GeForce RTX or GeForce GTX 900 Series and newer GPUs can enable NVIDIA Reflex. This reduces system latency so your actions occur quicker, making single-player titles more responsive and enjoyable, and increasing your competitiveness in multiplayer matches. In The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™, with Reflex activated, system latency is reduced by up to 56%.


If you want to experience The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ with all the bells and whistles, or just want to know how it’ll perform on your system, here are the official PC system requirements, featuring resolution, preset and frame rate info:

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum™ launches May 25th. Head on over to Steam to Wishlist or pre-order. Learn about the latest developments in the world of DLSS in our newest DLSS article.
