The business has altered the TDP specs for its next mid-range GPU, claims hardware leaker Kopite7kimi.
The first desktop card with an AD106 GPU will be the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. The card is said to have 4352 CUDA cores, and it most likely has 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Additionally, this would be the first desktop graphics card of this generation not to utilise GDDR6X technology.
The specifications for Kopite from last month have allegedly been changed. The only change in the TDP, from 220W to only 160W, is what we know. The successor will reportedly use 40W less power than it did in the past, rather than the previously touted 20W more.
On February 8th, NVIDIA will officially introduce its first line of RTX 40 mobile graphics cards. This day will also see the release of the RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, which is said to use the GN21-X6 GPU, also known as the AD106. This would imply that NVIDIA has the GPU ready and that nothing should prevent them from making it available for desktop use as well. Nothing besides the RTX 3060 series’ current supply.
If speculated specifications are taken into account, the RTX 4060 Ti would have fewer cores and only use half of the memory bus. Although the bandwidth will be drastically reduced to just 288 GB/s (RTX 3060 Ti has 608 or 448 GB/s depending on SKU), it is not yet known how this will influence performance.
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 finally cut the cost of Ada Lovelace architecture, something this architecture sorely needs.
