Nvidia cuts the price of poorly reviewed 16GB RTX 4060 Ti

Matching the AMD chip announcement

As AMD last week announced what are probably the last major GPU launches of its current generation of graphics cards, Nvidia quietly slashed the price of its rather dull and poorly reviewed 6GB RTX 4060 Ti cards.

For those who came in late AMD released the $449 Radeon RX 7700 XT and $499 Radeon RX 7800 XT. AMD's pricing and performance numbers pit the cards against Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti (the $499 16GB version) and the $599 RTX 4070.

AMD's pricing is aggressive enough that Nvidia is quietly cutting the prices of some 16GB RTX 4060 Ti cards to $449, to match the RX 7700 XT.

The announcement about the $50 reduction was buried toward the bottom of an email that Nvidia sent to GPU reviewers ahead of AMD's launch next week.  The email reminded us that its chips had Nvidia-specific features like DLSS upscaling and frame generation, which compete with AMD's GPU-agnostic FSR, plus recent DLSS improvements that improve ray-tracing performance.
