The TDP specifications for NVIDIA’s next mid-range GPU have changed, reports hardware leaker Kopite7kimi.
GeForce RTX 4060 Ti will be the first desktop graphics card with an AD106 GPU. According to reports, the card has 4352 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Additionally, this would be the first desktop graphics card of this generation not to utilize GDDR6X technology.
The specifications for Kopite from last month have reportedly been updated. As far as we know, the TDP has decreased from 220W to 160W. It is stated that the successor will utilize 40W less power, indicating a major power decrease. On February 8th, NVIDIA will release its first mobile RTX 40 graphics cards. Among the cards arriving on this day is the RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, which is said to utilize the GN21-X6 GPU, commonly known as AD106. This would indicate that NVIDIA already possesses the GPU, and nothing should prevent them from introducing it for desktops. Nothing other than the current RTX 3060 series inventory.
According to speculated specifications, the RTX 4060 Ti would have fewer cores and a memory bus that is half the size. It is unknown how this would impact performance, although bandwidth will be drastically decreased to 288 GB/s (RTX 3060 Ti has 608 or 448 GB/s depending on SKU). Both the RTX 4070 non-Ti and RTX 4060 Ti are anticipated for release in late Q1 or early Q2 of 2023. These cards will make Ada Lovelace architecture more accessible to those on tighter budgets.
After correction, 160W. https://t.co/thAbqh0Ndq
