Nvidia’s GeForce X060 tier cards are usually one of the most popular SKUs, so we’re nervous about the launch of the RTX 4060, purported to be one of the best graphics cards out there. Today, leak-centric video card site VideoCardz announced that it managed to succeed. Get 3DMark Score From the review that is being prepared for the “formal lifting of the embargo on June 28”. We’re sharing extensive comparative scores featuring several neighboring SKUs, allegedly taken from 3DMark Speed Way, Port Royal, Time Spy, and Fire Strike comprehensive tests.
Before we share and discuss some scores, our headline is a clear 23% improvement in generational growth brought by the upcoming RTX 4060 8GB over the established RTX 3060 12GB. It is important to point out that the emphasis is on A relatively recent addition, the RTX 3060 8GB lags far behind the new Ada Lovelace architecture entrants. According to numbers collected by VideoCardz, the new RTX 4060 is reported to be 47.9% faster than the RTX 3060 8GB version. The source also emphasizes that both 8GB cards mentioned have a 128-bit memory bus and a PCIe Express 4.0 8x interface, so they may not be suitable for modern 1440p (2560×1440) games. I’m here.
I reproduced a summary set of results from the VideoCardz source. Add a little salt to these numbers. But don’t forget that they are also composite numbers. UL designs 3DMark benchmarks to resemble the games people play across generations and APIs. Still, the correlation between these scores and his FPS in gameplay isn’t always strong, as there are many different types of 3D engines.

I would have liked to compare the results of the RTX 3070 and RX 6700. For expensive reasons, PC enthusiasts and DIYers may sideline older stock or used GPUs instead of products like the RTX 4060 / Ti 8GB. Future reviews will be much broader than these results and will cover many of the most popular games and display resolutions in 2023.
Recall that Nvidia is also preparing a GeForce RTX 4060 Ti model with 16 GB of VRAM starting in July. Even models with double the VRAM suffer from a 126-bit memory bus, so we’ll have to try and see if and when it’s worth considering.
