A new benchmark tool is popular with PC gamers on Steam right now. Although the…
Rumors are currently circulating about the performance of the mid-range graphics cards RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4060 from Nvidia (via PC Games Hardware). If the information is correct, the Ti model would offer a performance on the level of the RTX 3080, which is easily equipped for gaming in 4K in our current test system with an average of over 80 FPS.
Nvidia’s X60/XX60 series has enjoyed great popularity for years because it offers good gaming performance at significantly lower prices than in the high-end segment around models like the aforementioned RTX 3080. However, due to the extremely high graphics card prices until the beginning of 2022, some people may have skipped upgrading with an RTX 3060 (Ti) and are now waiting all the more eagerly for the RTX 4060 (Ti).
However, it is also true in this case that it is only a rumor based on one Twitter post acts. Basically, the performance information sounds quite plausible. Official information about the RTX 4000 generations will be available soon. You can find out more about this here:

About 50 percent faster than the predecessors?
The information comes from the Twitter account @QbitLeaks and refers to the synthetic benchmark 3D Mark Time Spy Extreme (TSE). In addition to the number of points achieved, QbitLeaks also indicates the clock rate and the power consumption:

The values should only be based on test boards and cover one of several possible configurations. However, the values still allow a rough overview of the expected performance, provided they are real.
Comparison with RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3060
The previous models achieved around 5,500 points (RTX 3060 Ti) and 4,000 points (RTX 3060) in the benchmark. The performance plus would accordingly be in the range of 50 percent.
According to the rumor, the clock plus that the RTX 4060 models bring with them is only slightly lower. Instead of about 1.9 to 2.0 GHz as with the Geforce RTX 3060 (Ti), the Geforce RTX 4060 (Ti) should be in the range of 2.6 to 2.7 GHz.
In return, the power consumption is quite high at 270 to 280 watts (RTX 4060 Ti) or 230 to 240 watts (RTX 4060). The official specifications for the predecessors are 200 watts (RTX 3060 Ti) and 170 watts (RTX 3060).
When will the graphics cards appear? There is no official information about this yet. However, since the RTX 3060 (Ti) only appeared a few months after the top models RTX 3080 & Co. or early 2021, we expect the RTX 4060 (Ti) to be in early 2023 at the earliest.
