ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 Overclocking Edition Review: Entry-level mainstream graphics cards also need domineering three fans

2023-06-29 13:00:00

In addition to the standard starting price of the GeForce RTX 4060, we also received the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocked graphics card from ASUS.

The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocked version is ASUS’ current top-of-the-line RTX 4060 graphics card product line, and its appearance continues the cassette-like design of the same series of RTX 4090 and RTX 4080. The graphics card has a total length of 311.4 mm and a thickness of 3.1 slots.

The windshield is changed to plastic material, but the matte gray-black frame with a little metal star spot effect, with the red and blue printed metal ROG Prodigal Eye Logo, still maintains the texture.

The heat dissipation power is still composed of three axial fans with guide rings, but the blades are slightly changed into a wavy shape. The direction of the fan in the center is different from that of the left and right sides, which reduces turbulence and noise while also enhancing wind flux and wind pressure.

The main body of the heat sink in contact with the chip is 5 copper nickel-plated heat pipes, with a large number of dense aluminum fins, which can more effectively take heat away from the GPU, even because the RTX 4060 itself consumes less power/heats less , and it can be done that the fan does not need to rotate most of the time.

Although it is an overclocking version, the card needs to be driven by a set of PCIe 8 pin power terminals. The PCB is designed with a short board, which only occupies about 7% of the total length of the graphics card. ventilation efficiency.

Although the back of the PCB is not a thick metal frame, the backplane is still made of metal material, taking into account heat dissipation and structural strengthening. The hollowed-out pane at the end also uses anodizing methods of different colors to blend the silhouette of the Prodigal Eye Logo.

There are also two sets of PWM temperature-controlled fan contacts at the end of the graphics card, providing additional DIY flexibility. The tail end is covered with LED lamp beads, which support Aura Sync synchronous lighting effects.

Effectiveness measurement

The factory Boost clock of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocked version reaches 2670 MHz, which is 210 MHz overclocked compared to the RTX 4060 standard clock of 2460 MHz. The default power consumption is set at 130 W, and the maximum can provide 163 W.


Compared with the Speed ​​Way test score of the simulated DirectX 12 Ultimate game, it is about 2% ahead.

game performance

In terms of game measurement, the average frame rate of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocked version at 1080p resolution is about 3% to 6% ahead of the normal starting price RTX 4060, with an average lead of 3.55%.

Power Consumption vs. Temperature

Because of overclocking, the highest power consumption of the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocked version measured by the NVIDIA PCAT tool is 4.2W higher than that of the ordinary RTX 4060. But because the radiator is too powerful, the GPU core temperature is 15.5°C lower than that of the ordinary RTX 4060, and the hot spot temperature is even 17.4°C lower.

The recommended price of ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4060 overclocking version has not been disclosed yet, but according to the past, it will indeed be much higher than NVIDIA’s suggested starting price. Materials, dazzling design, and a long warranty period, friends in need, please buy carefully.
