Possible RTX 4060 Ti Specs Surface – 160W, Small PCB

Source: TechPowerup

Rejoice! The (possibly) SFF friendly NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti appears to be on it’s way, if leaked specs are anything to go by.

First up – ‘a very short reference board’. This is a win, no matter what. A 160W board power rating, 8GB GDDR6 and a AD106 core (with a 32MB L2 cache), a new chip based on the existing Ada Lovelace core that the card’s bigger brothers use. Reports are not clear as to whether or not this is peak AD106.

Specs include 4352 CUDA cores across 34 streaming multiprocessors, 34 RT cores, 136 Tensor cores. 136 TMUs. The ROP count is unknown. The 8GB GDDR6 runs on a 128-bit wide bus, at around 288 GB/s bandwidth.

Not that I wouldn't love to see some lower power GPUs, but this seems highly suspect.
Also, gimping the 4060ti so seriously wouldn't serve to give us much more performance than we already have in 170-205mm 200W TDP 3060ti cards.

I would much rather see an incredibly efficient 200ish Wattage card, with 12GB of GDDR6, well designed to be cooled by 1-2 fans, while providing 3070ti+ performance.

Based on current Ampere - Ada napkin math power efficiency trends, a 200W TDP 4060 ti should effectively be a 3070 ti. A 220W card should effectively be a 3080.
Based on the currently released cards, and Nvidia's trend to keep 40xx cards roughly in line with previous 30xx TDPs, we could see a significant power drop off between 4070-4070 ti, while still getting a ~200W 4060 ti, ~170W 4060. This would fit very nicely into the stack, and line up with historic SFF card power limits.

3060 - 170W TDP
3060 ti - 200W TDP
3070 - 220W TDP
3070 ti - 285W TDP
3080 - 320W TDP
3080 ti - 350W TDP
3090 - 350W TDP
4070 ti - 285W TDP ~71% W per Perf
3090 ti - 450W TDP
4080 - 320W TDP ~62% W per Perf
4090 - 450W TDP ~69-76% W per Perf

This is all of course just speculation, but when comparing the 40-series to 30-series, some trends DO become clear.

Compared to the 3060ti, it has fewer CUDA cores , half the memory bus (128bits vs 256bits) and lower bandwidth (288GBps versus 448GBps).

I'm sceptical.... or maybe NVidia thinks DLSS and faked pixels are enough for their customers hard earned money

Yeah, regardless, I'm not super encouraged by the evidence I've seen thus far on the way Nvidia is handling the 40-series... Which is why I just bought a lightly used RTX A4000!
RTX 3060 Ti perf, in a 140W package, that after a quick cooler swap, will fit into a Densium 4!
There's already rumors about the 50-series being a huge jump anyway. I can skip this gen.

Shit, I just looked up "A4000 cooler swap", people are doing some neat things there.
What mod do you have in mind? I guess you'd remove the original fan to save length. I found a mod that does that, but the card including the new heat sink & fan ends up being 45 mm tall.
