the rtx 4060, worth it or wait?

do you guys think the rtx 4060 is finally becoming worth it? why or why not? considering the more recent price drops, what do you guys think?

(pc if the parts get here in time): ryzen 7 3700||gigabyte gtx 1070|| 16 gb ddr4|| SanDisk Ultra 3D 512GB 2.5 ssd||MSI b450m pro-vdh max||2013 corsair cx750m|| hp pavilion case||

What are the price drops in your area? From what I can see they've barely changed ($300) and I still wouldn't buy one. RX 6800 is $360-$380 and 7700 XT around $380, either of those is much better than the 4060.

The 4060 is a terrible value card, look for the 6700xt, or other amd cards in this price range

300 diping into the high 200s

They're both faster than a 3070 and not miles off a 3080, but these are brand new with a warranty, whereas I assume you're talking about a used card.

 

TPU's database (raster, no upscaling) has them as relative to the 4060 (baseline):

3070: +27%

7700 XT: +37%

6800: +40%

3080: +65%

$300 USD is the MSRP of the 4060. Within a week of launch, you could already get models for $300 - this isn't a new price.

 

As for whether it's worth it - it's not awful, but it's certainly not compelling. If you can find a 6700XT or 6750XT for a similar price, I'd say that's the way to go. You get better performance and more VRAM. If you want to save money, you can find the RX 6650XT for $220 often these days, which gives you slightly less performance and no DLSS, but it's also over 30% cheaper.

 

In terms of value, the aforementioned RX 6800 at about $360 is a very interesting choice - honestly it seems to be the best price/performance option on the whole market. If found at that price, the 4060 is pointless at $300. You're paying just 20% more to get a vastly superior card with double the VRAM. The RX 6800 should even win in most ray tracing scenarios, and the performance boost more than makes up for the lack of DLSS.

 

If the 4060 gets down to $200 (maybe $225 at the most) then it's interesting and really a go-to option at the entry level all other things being equal. As it stands, it just isn't worth it unless you need to go Nvidia for some non-gaming workload.

The 4060, 4060Ti, and AMD options up to the RX 7700XT can only use 8 PCIE lanes. So if you have a mobo or CPU that only supports up to PCIE gen 3, you will be hobbled by the gen 3 x8 connection.

 

6700/6750XT uses all 16 lanes
