According to the latest industry rumors @MEGAsizeGPUNVIDIA would have advanced the release date of its GeForce RTX 4060. Originally, NVIDIA planned to release this graphics card alongside the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB sometime in July. It is now indicated that its launch would take place at the end of this month.
The reasons for this date change are unknown. The AMD Radeon RX 7600 is selling poorly. The reason? performs like the Radeon RX 6650 XT costing more money. In this way, we do not know if the GeForce RTX 4060 arrives to try to stop the popularity it is generating Intel Arc GPUs. Of course, the NVIDIA GPU is much more expensive than an Intel Arc A750, but it is clear that NVIDIA wants to trust that his name is worth that additional cost that the user has to pay. Unfortunately for you, recent releases of both the Radeon RX 7600 and GeForce RTX 4060 Ti only reveal that the name doesn’t matter. When the price tag isn’t justified with the performance offered.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Specifications
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 has a pretty tough launch ahead of it. The reason for this is linked to their 3,072 CUDA Cores, this represents 512 fewer CUDA Cores than its predecessor. Although they are more powerful cores, the cut implies reducing the performance gap between both GPUs.
Another negative point of this GPU is that it comes with 8GB of GDDR6 memory at 17Gbps. Limited by a 128-bit interface, it gives a bandwidth of 272GB/s. Another notable difference from the 12GB GDDR6 at 15 Gbps than its predecessor. While your memory is slower, a 192-bit interface increases your bandwidth up to 360 GB/s. Finally, this graph will arrive at a recommended price of 335 euros ($229).
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti can be found in europe from 319 euros. It offers 4,864 CUDA Cores and a bandwidth of 448GB/s. If there are no surprises, this older, cheaper GPU will be more powerful. Of course, NVIDIA will focus on DLSS 3 as the strong point of the new generation GPU. Really NVIDIA shot himself in the foot with the entire GeForce RTX 40 Series. It must be remembered that the GeForce RTX 4070 was originally going to be released as an RTX 4080 with 12 GB of VRAM.
The lower-middle range no longer exists in this new generation
It has happened to AMD and also to NVIDIA, and it is that their mid-range graphics have everything, less than mid-range. they feel like low-end graphics at the price of high-end graphics. That is why these graphs are already cannibalized by the previous generation models themselves. These offer a better balance between performance offered per euro invested. In the case of AMD there is no justification. In the case of NVIDIA, they can still hold onto the marketing of DLSS 3 and the drastic reduction in power consumption.
If the launch of the GeForce RTX 4060 8GB takes place at the end of the month, it is logical that in a few days the leaks begin. So far, NVIDIA has only wanted to compare it with the RTX 2060 and RTX 3060, and not the RTX 3060 Ti, its rival for price.
