The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Ti FE 8 GB in detail
The card only weighs 1024 grams, which is interestingly even 4 grams more than the RTX 4070 FE 12GB. Whereby the casing remains identical. The length of 24.5 cm is moderate and the height of 10.5 cm is on par with normal. You don’t need a trum of case there, even if you have to use the great 12VHPWR adapter, but it gets by with a single 6+2 pin. The installation depth is 3.8 cm plus the 5 mm for the backplate attachment on the rear. This makes it a true dual-slot card.
The light metal frame is well-known and the design language of the fan, cover and slot bezel is not new either. Only that everything looks richly shrunk. NVIDIA uses a single BIOS and those who want to overclock have to use a suitable tool. The feel is, as usual, high-quality, the cards definitely have collector’s value and look pleasantly timeless.
You can not only plug power into the card, but also video connections. There are four of them, to be exact: three DisplayPort 1.4a and one HDMI 2.1a. That’s a shame, especially with the DisplayPort, when it comes to the new specifications. A missed opportunity, unfortunately. And with HDMI, you have to trick with the compression from 4K onwards if you want it to go above 120 Hz.
