As mentioned earlier, many NVIDIA partners didn’t show much enthusiasm when promoting the upcoming GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card with 16GB of memory. However, some manufacturers felt that the accelerator still deserved a new proprietary design, or at least the use of a cooling system with an updated design. For example, MSI is preparing to release the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB Gaming X Slim.
The manufacturer previously unveiled a version of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti Gaming Trio equipped with a very large 2.5 expansion slot cooler, familiar from other graphics card models, although the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti itself has a stated TDP has of only 160 watts.
As it became known, the company is also preparing another version of the accelerator as part of its proprietary gaming series. It’s called GeForce RTX 4060 Ti Gaming X Slim White. The card features an all new white cooling system that is exactly two expansion slots thick.
Keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB differs from the base model only in the amount of video memory, but retains the 128-bit memory bus and offers the same level of raw performance. It is based on the AD106-350 GPU with 4352 CUDA cores. The specified power consumption of the graphics card has been increased to 200 watts. Only eight PCIe 4.0 lanes are used for operation.
The sales start of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB is expected for July 18th. Apparently, the MSI GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB Gaming X Slim White will cost more than NVIDIA’s recommended $499 for this model.
