In the PC hardware industry, it’s reached a point where it’s almost more normal to talk about leaks than announcements. With insiders gutting all the ins and outs of new products for us, it’s no wonder we’re talking about the RTX 4060 Ti when NVIDIA hasn’t even announced it yet. today it’s our turn talk about efficiencyan area in which we are going to see great improvements if we look back at the last generation.
A little over a week ago, the first data on the RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4070 was already beginning to emerge. They were painted to us as cut-down versions of the RTX 4070 Ti and, although they did not give many detailsthey did allow themselves to talk to us about some of their more technical details.
Among them was the one for consumption, which handled numbers between 200 and 220W of TDP. Considering that the RTX 3060 Ti has a TDP of 200W, the numbers that were being provided were within the normal range, surprising no one. Soon after, more information pointed to the fact that the RTX 4060 Ti would consume 20W more than its previous version, leaving us at 220W.
Now, the renowned leaker kopite7kimi points to a fix. According to your data, the consumption of this new graphics card it would be 160W TDP, making it not only much more efficient than the 3060 Ti, but also consuming less than a base 3060. If this prediction comes true, we could see the cheapest models of these GPUs more viable, which generally cut costs through worst dissipation measures of heat.
On the other hand, the same RTX 4070 has also seen a revision that puts its TDP at 200W. It seems that NVIDIA is betting on the optimization of consumption and energy use, as well as chips that will see their temperatures reduced more easily than we saw in the Ampere generation. As always, since it does not come from official sources, we do not have to take these data for true, but, if they were, they would point to a mid-range with good ideas behind them.
