The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 series had its own fair share of debate last week, especially about the VRAM where only the top-notch 4060 Ti gets 16GB while the rest only at 8GB. But let’s just ditch that for now and focusing on what’s being offered by AIB partners.
MSI continued its decision from the RTX 4070 times and brought it over here as well with the GAMING and VENTUS series taking the charge.
The dual-fan GAMING and tri-fan GAMING TRIO from the GAMING family both feature the TWIN FROZR 9/TRI FROZR 3 cooling system, which includes TORX FAN 5.0 design fan blades, a brushed-metal backplate, and thermal pads for passive cooling. Additionally, the Mystic Light RGB with Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link is available for those who want to enhance their setup with colorful lighting effects.
On the other hand, the VENTUS 3X/2X models are reliable and cost-effective options that prioritize functionality over RGB lighting. They come with TORX Fan 4.0, a reinforced backplate, and a sleek design, providing more choices for those seeking powerful yet discreet rigs.
For ASUS, they are going for 4 different series (Albeit with OC models doubling the numbers technically), namely the ROG Strix, TUF Gaming, Dual, and Dual White.
The ROG Strix is still the chonkiest out of all arming the Red/Blue/Black design filled with RGB LEDs on one end of the card. But it is slightly smaller at 3.1 slots and 311.4mm long so easier installation I guess?
The iconic 11-blade Axial-Tech fans push 21% more volume while features like dual BIOS switch, PC case fan interconnectivity, and Aura Sync compatible tail-lights can be found here.
The TUF Gaming series instead gains very little vertical height which means thickness in exchange for an even shorter horizontal length at 300mm. The rest of the goodies found on the ROG Strix model pretty stay here so this can be great if you don’t like flairs in general.
Lastly, the budget-centric Dual and Dual White series is going to take over the mid-range build due to the vented aluminum backplate, 0dB tech, and high air volume movement. Using only 2 fans means the length is down to a mere 227mm too. And yes, this card only takes 1 8-pin power connector.
- TUF Gaming RTX 4060 Ti OC 8GB @ RM2,389
- TUF Gaming RTX 4060 Ti 8GB @ RM2,349
- DUAL GeForce RTX 4060 Ti OC 8GB @ RM2,050
- DUAL GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB @ RM2,050
PALIT is going for the simple ones this time around with the coverage of the Dual and StormX series.
The Dual series will make use of the usual dual-fan design and sleek black finish. With a large opening at the back and 2x 95mm fan on the front, it offers adequate cooling and acoustic performance while the subtle RGB on the rear adds just a little bit of light for your rig.
On the other hand, mini PC and ITX users will definitely find the StormX model appreciable thanks to the single-fan and compact design that can go into their rigs with ease.
As per tradition for COLORFUL, they are offering a variety of different series with unique aesthetics so you can choose the best for your build but for certain series, only selected models are available.
First, they have the iGame Advanced Series that takes inspiration from racing cars so it is a bit more metallic and sporty here. the central fan is larger at 90mm and has RGB-lit Gravity Rim as well as a hollow back panel. It is reserved for the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB and 8GB only.
On the other hand, the standard RTX 4060 comes in the form of the Mini-V on the right that houses gamery color accents like deep purple and neon green plus 8-bit text for that little nostalgia feel.
The Ultra W and Ultra W Duo packs the iconic holographic shroud design to give out that bright esports aesthetics while the cooler design contains think copper heat pipes alongside 90mm fans to make sure they offer the performance they are supposed to. All models in the RTX 4060 family are available for this series.
As for the simple and straightforward, the NB EX and NB EX DUO utilizes a implied Battle-AX design to give out a Black and Red look. The tri-fan only has RTX 4060 Ti versions while the duo fan covers all 3 RTX 4060 series models.
Time for Gainward’s turn and they will be putting out all the RTX 4060 Ti 16GB, RTX 4060 Ti 8GB, and RTX 4060 8GB in forms of the Ghost series while the Pegasus gets strictly the 8GB cards. But in any case, the Ghost rocks a dual fan design so any mATX rigs onwards will be able to use it without much problem while the Pegasus are reserved for the ITX boys thanks to the single fan and small shroud dimensions.
For GIGABYTE, let’s take a look at the eagle head AORUS first. The AORUS model will feature both the RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4060 and utilizes the MASTER variant design where the fans contain the RGB Halo triple blue/pink LEDs with the shroud getting a blue/metallic silver paint job.
The WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant that extends their lifespan by 2.1 times while the entire build quality is durable thanks to the use of premium materials. Dual BIOS switch is just the bread-and-butter for GPUs these days.
On the other hand, the standard GIGABYTE series gets the GAMING OC, AERO OC, and EAGLE OC coming in a variety of color coats like the full black, full black, or a black/blue combination. Perhaps containing not as much flair as the AORUS model, the trio packs almost the same level of features too such as WINDFORCE fans, Dual BIOS, high build quality, and more.
- AORUS GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB @ RM2,329
- GeForce RTX 4060 Ti GAMING OC 8GB @ RM2,159
- GeForce RTX 4060 Ti AERO OC 8GB @ RM2,239
- GeForce RTX 4060 Ti EAGLE OC 8GB @ RM2,069
- GeForce RTX 4060 Ti EAGLE 8GB @ RM2,019
PNY, at least in Malaysia, will be debuting the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB in the form of the XLR8 Gaming VERTO EPIC-X RGB Triple Fan and VERTO Dual Fan series.
True to their names, the former will be the best one equipped with tri-fan cooling system and RGB to light up your rig while providing adequate performance at an affordable price without going too overboard in space occupation since it only takes up 2 slots.
The VERTO Dual Fan series on the other hand, is slightly smaller and works nice with all sorts of builds and stays as simple as it can be – black shroud from top to bottom.
