There's seven pages here of RTX 3070 Ti analysis and data in this review, but the more I used the card, the more I realised that this is massive overkill for a GPU where the salient points can be summed up in one paragraph. The RTX 4060 Ti is essentially a hybrid RTX 3060 Ti/RTX 3070 with the added bonus of DLSS 3, a good media block and extra efficiency, but beyond that it's a missed opportunity and a disappointment. There are some positive points to highlight, but they're crushed by the sense that Nvidia isn't delivering good value to the sector of the market that most demands it.
And this is actually a shame, because there are positive points to discuss. While gen-on-gen gains up against the RTX 3060 Ti are variable and VRAM allocation is an issue, the advantages of the Ada Lovelace architecture can still shine through. DLSS 3 frame generation's ability to overcome CPU limitations has palpable worth in the mainstream, as you'll see later on.
Perhaps more impressively, Cyberpunk 2077 RT Overdrive - a massive statement about the future of games - doesn't just run well on the RTX 4060 Ti at 1080p, I actually found that via the RT optimisation mod we discussed in the past, it actually runs slightly faster than RTX 4070 in an unmodded state at 1440p in DLSS balanced mode. A path-traced Cyberpunk 2077 running with better image quality and faster frame-rates than the Series X and PS5 versions in their performance modes is quite the thing to see and it's all coming from a $400 GPU.
