“Budget” Sub-$600 NVIDIA RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti GPUs Allegedly Planned for Sept/Oct 2023

NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 4090 in October, followed by the RTX 4080 last month. While the former is a fairly decent proposition for enthusiast gamers, the latter is nothing, if not grossly overpriced, with its sticker price of $1,199. NVIDIA plans to launch the first “affordable” Ada Lovelace GPU on the 6th of January for a price of $799-ish, which was previously going to be the RTX 4080 12GB. The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti will compete with the Radeon RX 7900 XT, its core selling point being potent ray-tracing performance.

If you’re waiting on the “budget” RTX 40 series graphics cards, don’t. According to a report from ProHardver, NVIDIA is in no hurry to roll out its mainstream Ada Lovelace offerings. It’ll announce the AD106-based GeForce RTX 4060/4060 Ti no sooner than Computex, followed by a launch in September or October 2023. In terms of specifications, we’re looking at 8GB to 12GB of GDDR6X memory paired with a 128-bit bus and a not-so-affordable price of $400-500.

Currently, the AD107 is only planned for mobile dGPUs alongside a 64-bit bus for low power and flexible design targets. As with the RTX 3050, we should see the RTX 4050/4050 Ti towards the tail-end of the Ada cycle.
