It seems that Nvidia has stopped the supply chain of the GPU used in the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics cards to make way for the new RTX 4060 product family. be smoother
Taiwanese news outlet Benchlife which focuses on PC hardware news, citing sources close to Nvidia, claims that this company and its business partners have made significant changes in their work plan, one of which is stopping the production of processors used in graphics cards. GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. Therefore, it has been said that the production process of GeForce RTX 4060 and 4060Ti graphics cards has accelerated and to help boost the sales of these products, the production of the previous generation will be stopped.
To clarify about his news sources, the author of this article noted that these news were mostly published by Chinese forums. According to these reports, Nvidia has stopped supplying RTX 3060 Ti silicon to its business partners, and it is not clear whether Nvidia’s business partners have come to the conclusion that the work of the old version of the 60 series is finished, or whether this decision was imposed on them by the green team. has been But anyway, it seems that Nvidia has prioritized the release of its new products.
Of course, as mentioned, it is logical for Nvidia to open the way for the launch of its new products from the Ada Lovelace series. Especially considering that the RTX 3060 Ti graphics card has also recently gained high popularity among fans and its purchase value has increased. Therefore, Nvidia has decided to direct the desire of users to buy products of this category to the RTX 4060 family through this strategy and bring its new products to users at new prices.
Currently, the competition in the mid-range graphics processor market is increasing, and both Nvidia and AMD are preparing to release their new graphics cards based on the Ada Lovelace and RDNA3 architectures. With demand for high-end graphics cards still low, both companies are trying to deliver the best possible performance in the sub-$500 price range.
Recently, for the first time, an image of the graphics processor used in the structure of the RTX4060 graphics card was published, which confirms the name of this chip. Also, according to published reports, RTX 4060 Ti configuration is limited to 8 PCIe Gen4 lanes, which is common in low-end graphics. This issue, by being placed next to the limited memory bus, will probably have a significant impact on the performance of this card in gaming. Of course, to know the details of this, we have to wait until the release of this product in late May or early June.
The GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card is equipped with an AD104-180-A1 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores and also has 10 GB of GDDR6 memory with a speed of 17.5 Gbps. In the previous TGP information, this card was stated to be 275 watts. In this class, we can say that the 4060Ti is an upgraded version of the RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, which has 2 GB more graphics memory.
The non-Ti model of the RTX 4060 graphics card also uses a different AD106-300 GPU, which has fewer cores with 3968 FP32 units. The RTX 4060 has also reduced the amount of video memory to 8 GB and uses a 128-bit bus interface with a speed of 17 Gbps. If these rumors are true, the RTX 4060 has less graphics memory than the RTX 3060, which is not very believable.
Therefore, the graphics processing power of RTX 4060 Ti will be about 3.7 times less than the flagship RTX 4090 of this series. The non-Ti model of this card, the RTX 4060, is 5.5 times less than the RTX 4090 with 15 teraflops of graphics processing power. Nvidia’s business partners are finalizing the development of custom PG190 boards that will be used in both RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti models. The models of this series are expected to arrive in May.
