NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti with 16GB VRAM has 165W TDP
New details on NVIDIA’s upcoming mid-range GPU with 16GB VRAM.
NVIDIA’s RTX 4060 Ti graphics card with increased memory buffer reportedly has different GPU variant and requires more power. This was stated by NVIDIA documents provided to board partners recently. What should be noted is that NVIDIA has not yet supplied the GPUs for these cards, meaning we are only looking at raw specs of a proposed SKU, so keep in mind that specs can still change.
Nevertheless, the RTX 4060 Ti with 16GB VRAM will have a different SKU than 8GB model (363 vs. 361), but the board design will remain the same (PG190). More importantly, NVIDIA found it necessary to use a different GPU variant for this card specifically, but it is a minor bump from AD106-350 to 351. This likely means that it has the same CUDA core count, but some physical changes to the design were still necessary.
As expected, by doubling the memory size, the power consumption will increase as well. However, it is reportedly just 5W higher than RTX 4060 Ti 8GB spec of 160W. It is unclear yet if the 16GB variant has the same memory clock of 18 Gbps, but for now, this is a good assumption.
It is apparent that at after RTX 4080 12GB launch fiasco, the company is more careful when designing different cards under the same name, so the specifications should remain similar between both SKUs. As far as we know, those are the only three changes currently being discussed (capacity, GPU variant and TDP).
According to our information, the RTX 4060 Ti is set to launch in the second half of July. The 8GB model is now expected to debut on May 24th.
