In-Game Benchmarks

Now we finally get into the in game performance and that is the main reason people pick up a new video card. To test things out I ran through our new benchmark suite that tests 10 games at three different resolutions (1080p, 1440p, and 4k). Most of the games tested have been run at the highest detail setting and a mid-range detail setting to get a look at how turning things up hurts performance and to give an idea of if turning detail down from max will be beneficial for frame rates. In total, each video card is tested 54 times and that makes for a huge mess of results when you put them all together. To help with that I like to start with these overall playability graphs that take all of the results and give an easier-to-read result. I have one for each of the three resolutions and each is broken up into four FPS ranges. Under 30 FPS is considered unplayable, over 30 is playable but not ideal, over 60 is the sweet spot, and then over 120 FPS is for high refresh rate monitors.

So how did the RTX 4060 Ti Founders Edition do? Well at 1080p which is the resolution it is designed for it did well. Two of our results came in up over 240 FPS, 11 were over 120 FPS, and 3 were over 60 with nothing below that. It did better at 1440p than I would have expected with everything still at or above 60 FPS and 6 over 120 FPS and one more (it’s always CS:GO) up over 240 as well. Then at 4K it really starts to fall in performance but even still considering the RTX 4060 Ti Founders Edition has 8 GB of VRAM and the 128-bit memory bus it still was playable at 4K with 7 of the results in the 30-59 FPS range, 8 were between 60-119 FPS, and one was over 120 FPS.

I averaged out all of the results at all three resolutions for the RTX 4060 Ti as well as the 3070, 3060 Ti, and the 6750 XT to get a better look at how they compare overall across all of our tests. I did remove the CS:GO numbers from the mix because they are so much higher than the rest of the scores that they can affect the averages more than any other game. I then have them sorted below in order of performance at 1080p because that is the targeted frame rate for this card. What we end up with is the RTX 3070 and the 4060 Ti are a lot closer at 1080p than expected to see after seeing some of our synthetic tests. The 3070 does pull ahead at 1440p and 4k but not by too much. The 4060 Ti and the 3060 Ti on the other hand are far apart at 1080p but the closer you get to 4k the closer they get to each other in performance. The surprise however is the 6750 XT out in front at 1080p ahead by 5 FPS but the 3070 catches up at 1440p and passes it at 4k.

Of course, I have all of the actual in game results as well for anyone who wants to sort through the wall of graphs below. I was really surprised with the CS:GO numbers which the RTX 4060 Ti fell behind on but we saw something similar with the 4070 which sits behind the RTX 3070 as well. Overall though we see what the averages show us as well, the RTX 4060 Ti trades places with the RTX 3070 depending on the game at 1080p but it falls behind as the resolution goes up, dropping off more at higher resolutions than the older 3060 Ti did.
