The RTX 4060 is one of the most anticipated graphics cards on the market, especially because of its performance that promises to be much faster than the previous generationbut also because of its price which should be quite affordable. However, it looks like there isn’t all good news when it comes to the map.

Indeed, the famous leaker kopite7kimi has just announced on Twitter that the GeForce RTX 4060 will consume more power than the current-gen RTX 3070. As a reminder, the RTX 3070 offers a TDP of 220 W, so expect the RTX 4060 to be even more power hungry. This is therefore bad news for players, most of whom may have to adapt their diet accordingly. As a reminder, the RTX 3060 only consumed 170W.

As wccftech revealed a few days ago, Nvidia plans to launch the GeForce RTX 4090 first, then the RTX 4080 and 4070 a little later. More precisely, the RTX 4090 would arrive in October 2022while we will have to wait November for the RTX 4080, then December for the RTX 4070. This is therefore much later than we expected, since previous reports all indicated a release as early as summer 2022.

For its part, the RTX 4060 would not arrive before 2023, since wccftech announces that the card should be unveiled at the CES 2023 show to be held in January. Seeing Nvidia space out the release of each of its graphics cards could be good news for gamers, sinceit will be easier for the manufacturer to manage stockouts. It will nevertheless be expected that the cards will be very difficult to obtain when they are released, as is the case with almost all electronic products in recent months.
