There is little left for the mid-range of NVIDIA graphics cards, belonging to the RTX 40 family, to appear, which will be chaired by the RTX 4070 and the RTX 4060 Ti, whose release is expected in the spring of this year. What do we know and what can we expect from them? We tell you in detail.
While the new generation of graphics cards, both from AMD and NVIDIA, have been around for months now, the vast majority of PC gaming enthusiasts are looking forward to models that are a little more affordable and therefore more affordable. belonging to what we could consider the mid-range. Especially due to their lack of availability during the previous generation. In any case, while we wait to get hold of them, what better than an advance.
New details of the NVIDIA RTX 4070
The RTX 4070 will be based on the current 4070 TI, so we shouldn’t expect much to have HD on hand since it doesn’t leave it, it’s a variation of it with the same amount of video memory, 12GB, GDDR6X but with a stripped down version of your GPU. They expect a number of 5888 calculation units In total 32-bit floating point, this makes a total of 46 cores and is expected to perform better than the RTX 3080 or even 3080 TI.
As for its consumption, it is expected to be around 200 watts; however, most likely the 12VHPWR connector will continue to be used since it supports a 150 watt mode. It is for all this that we hope that the deployment of the new model will not take long to be seriously executed and that the different models that are launched are variants of the current 4070 TI.
Regarding the price, we do not know at the moment what it will be today, what we can assure is that it will be higher than the RTX 3070, thus continuing with the tradition in the RTX 40 that the price of the cards is higher than its counterparts. from the previous generation HP. What we can talk about is the release date, which is expected in April of this year.
And what comes next?
Well, the answer is obvious is RTX 4060TI, and it is that NVIDIA has plans to launch each of its chips in two different models of graphics card. Which reminds us that we should still wait for the RTX 4080 Ti and RTX 4090 Ti, however, what we are interested in in this case is the mid-range.
If we are realistic and consistent with what we have seen so far, the RTX 4060 Ti should appear at a price close to that of the RTX 3070 and, like it, have an 8 GB configuration, but this time under a 128-bit bus. However, performance tests place it 13% higher in performance compared to the mentioned card of the previous generation.
Regarding its specifications, the RTX 4060 Ti is expected to carry the full version of the AD106 chip with a configuration of 4608 32-bit floating point units, which represents a total of 36 cores in total. Finally, it is expected that the Boost speed of this card is 2.8 GHz and all this with a 180W PTO. That is, if by using a different chip and configuration than the RTX 4070 a different industrial design is expected and with it more compact.
