After pictures of the reference PCBs of a Geforce RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition that had never been released like this have just circulated, pictures of the Geforce RTX 4060 FE have now also been published. The comparatively low TDP makes simple cooling possible.
Images of the reference PCB of a Geforce RTX 4070 Ti have just appeared, which, as is well known, came onto the market in January directly in the form of custom designs and was not offered as a Founders Edition. The graphics card, which relies on an AD104 GPU with 7,680 CUDA cores and 12 GiByte GDDR6X, was previously announced as the Geforce RTX 4080 12GB. Now, footage of the Geforce RTX 4060 Founders Edition reference design has also leaked.

Geforce RTX 4060 appears as Founders Edition
Unlike the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti, which is only offered in a custom design, the Geforce RTX 4060, which is expected to be the smallest graphics card of the Ada Lovelace generation for the time being, is to be offered in a Founders Edition.
Like the pictures for the reference PCB of the Geforce RTX 4070 Ti FE, which was never released, the pictures of the “Geforce RTX 4060 FE” come from the Twitter user @KittyYukkolike the site Videocardz.com first reported. According to the current state of affairs, the reference cooler, which is much more discreet than the larger models, should also be used on the Geforce RTX 4060 Ti FE. In both cases, significantly less power loss will probably have to be dissipated.
AD107 with 3,072 shader units and 115 watts
While the larger of the two entry-level graphics cards in the Geforce RTX 4000 series, the Geforce RTX 4060 Ti, is said to have an AD106 graphics processor with 4,352 shader units and a TDP of 160 watts, the Geforce RTX 4060 is said to be on the smallest GPU to date, the AD107 3,072 ALUs are based. The power loss should only be 115 watts, while both PCIe 4.0 x8 are used.

Your opinion is asked!
What do you think of the upcoming Geforce RTX 4060? Do we possibly see a successful entry into the Ada Lovelace generation, or are the small GA107 and the trimmed interface with PCIe 4.0 x8 too much of a good thing?
