NVIDIA RTX 4060 Mobile May Be Faster than the 4060 Desktop: Starting at $1,199 [Report]

The GeForce RTX 4060 will be an odd member of the Ada Lovelace family. The mobile variant will feature a larger cache buffer (of 32MB) than its desktop counterpart (24MB), and the only superior aspect of the latter may just be the GPU core clocks. Both variants will come with 3,072 FP32 shaders across 24 SMs and a 128-bit memory bus.

In the end, what eventually will hold the RTX 4060 mobile back is the TBP. The mobility part will have a sub-100W TBP, while the desktop SKU will have a peak power consumption of 115W. It’s worth noting that the TBP of mobility dGPUs varies from OEM to OEM, and some “extreme edition” gaming notebooks may certainly end up being faster.

And the 4060m do have 32m cache. However,the desktop 4060 dosen’t😅
