Things are definitely going to be heating up in the GPU market this spring and summer and NVIDIA continues to roll out their RTX 40 series. We’ve been been talking about the RTX 4070 for the past month and all of the rumors suggest it will be launching in the middle of April at a $749 price tag. It looks like May could see two launches before Computex 2023, the RTX 4060 Ti, which has all but been confirmed, and the RTX 4060.
Both of these cards would be based on the “AD106” silicon, which is expected to have around 36 streaming multiprocessors (SMs). This would give the maxed out chip 4,608 CUDA cores, 144 Tensor cores, 36 RT cores, 144 TMUs, 48 ROPs. The RTX 4060 Ti is rumored to have 32 SMs enabled which would mean you would get 4,352 CUDA cores, 128 Tensor cores, 32 RT cores, 128 TMUs, and 48 ROPs.
The RTX 4070 could be cut down even further. Both of these cards are expected to have 8GB of 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit memory interface. The cards are expected to be around the 200W mark in terms of TDP and will likely feature 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors instead of the 16-pin 12VHPWR.
