The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti (16 GB) costs $100 more than the 8 GB version, so it’s got to be faster, right? Maybe not, as MSI has shared a set of benchmarks that show the latest Ada Lovelace GPU delivering worse performance than its lower-capacity sibling in some of today’s most popular games, including Cyberpunk 2077 and F1 2023. NVIDIA officially launched the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti (16 GB) yesterday, but the company didn’t devote much to the event, only giving it a paragraph at the end of an article detailing the new Game Ready Driver for Portal: Prelude RTX and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
Starting this month, our graphics card partners, including ASUS, Colorful, Gainward, Galax, Gigabyte, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac will begin offering 16GB versions of the card. In most games, both versions of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti (8GB and 16GB) will deliver the same level of performance, because the specs are otherwise identical. There are a handful of games which play best at “High” settings presets on the RTX 4060 Ti (8GB), and “Ultra” settings on the RTX 4060 Ti (16GB). Today’s driver supports the new 16GB versions.
