Asus Dual GeForce RTX 4060 OC review: Solid performance

Asus Dual GeForce RTX 4060 OC

Despite the higher pricing compared to the already good AMD RX 7600, the Asus Dual GeForce RTX 4060 OC offers great performance, especially for ray tracing. It handles most 1080p games like a champ, and can even do 1440p gaming decently.

Quick specs

  • OC mode: 2,535MHz, Default: 2,505MHz (Boost)
  • 8-pin power connector
  • 8GB GDDR6 video RAM
  • 1x HDMI 2.1a, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a

Unlike the RX 7600, the RTX 4060 uses less power, and runs cooler while still delivering comparable performance. In Marvel's Spider-Man, the RX 7600 performs better in non-RT scenarios for 1080p, while the RTX 4060 edges out the RX 7600 in games such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Returnal. But in 1440p scenarios, the RX7600 is better in those two games.

The RTX 4060, however, shines when you turn on ray tracing, even without using tech such as DLSS, especially in Spider-Man. It can do a respectable 69.9fps — double that with DLSS3 on. Similarly for Returnal, the Nvidia card is able to put more than 120fps even on Epic settings. DLSS3 is the magic here with its AI-powered frames generation. You get very good frame rates even on 1440p. Even Cyberpunk 2077 was playable with 65fps at 1440p with RT on Ultra.

Seeing as I had a beautiful 5K monitor in the form of the Apple Studio Display, I tested out Baldur's Gate 3 at the highest Ultra settings with DLSS on our Aftershock PC and was able to get a respectable 48fps or more. Sure, it's not the most demanding game, but it really holds up well. Power consumption at load is at 115W, and temperatures max out at 70 degrees Celsius, which is nice compared to the 85 degrees of the RX 7600.

Retailing for S$479, the Asus Dual GeForce RTX 4060 OC costs almost S$100 more compared with the RX 7600. It's only a slightly better card, but DLSS3 is why this card is worth the extra cash. It really helps to increase your frame rates. It's a great upgrade if you're still on the GeForce RTX 1060 or RTX 2060 cards. Get it from Shopee, Lazada, or Amazon.
