NVIDIA has recently shared an update with board partners regarding their upcoming GPUs, the RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti. According to the update, there is currently no specific launch date set for the RTX 4060. However, NVIDIA is committed to releasing the RTX 4060 Ti by the end of May. While there is no embargo date set for the RTX 4060 yet, NVIDIA will likely announce it in the near future.
The launch preparations for the RTX 4060 Ti have already started, including tasks such as submitting lists of press and influencers. However, NVIDIA has not yet begun shipping the cards to retailers, which is scheduled to begin on May 5th. This is why there haven’t been any new leaks of photos or specifications in recent times.
It is worth noting that the RTX 4060 Ti will share the same board number (PG190) as its predecessor, the RTX 3060 Ti. This is not common when it comes to next-gen upgrades, but it could potentially result in more affordable cards. Since the RTX 40 series requires less power, the cooling systems designed for the RTX 3060 Ti should also work for the 4060 series. However, the RTX 4060 (non-Ti) will use a new board called PG173.
NVIDIA hasn’t disclosed any pricing information to their board partners yet, so any rumors you hear about the price are simply speculation. However, the fact that the RTX 4060 Ti will use an older PG190 board, have a memory specification limited to a 128-bit bus, and will use PCIe Gen4 to eight lanes could suggest that we’re finally going to see a more affordable RTX 40 Ada graphics card. Hopefully, NVIDIA sees these specifications the same way we do.
