Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti 16GB could be launching soon – paynews

But who would buy it?

The newest generation of graphics cards has not been terribly good for Nvidia. The RTX 4000 series has largely been criticized for being pricey and bulky, giving AMD an opportunity to win favor. However, Team Green is soldiering on, and there’s a chance that the 16GB version of the 4060 Ti could be coming very soon.

According to a screenshot uploaded by Twitter user MEGAsizeGPU (as reported by PCGamer), an embargo timeline shows that the latest in the Ada Lovelace range could be hitting the shelf by July 18. However, do note that this has not yet been officially confirmed at the time of writing.

Reports indicate that the Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will set you back $499, making it $100 more expensive than the 8GB model. Given that the upcoming GPU only differs from its predecessor by doubling the VRAM (literally everything else is the same), this could easily be an unpopular release for a lot of PC gamers. On top of that, some board partners do not seem excited about the new graphics card, with one telling PCGamer that they were “ambivalent” about it.

The GPU war rages on

AMD and Nvidia are still duking it out for graphics hardware supremacy, but the fact that not many Steam users are using current-gen hardware suggests both tech giants are failing to impress. Much of it comes down to simply not being worth the cost to upgrade a system with new equipment.

It’s a bit of a shame that not many people are buying into the Ada Lovelace/RDNA 3 generation of GPU technology. Given that the previous gen suffered from supply issues (brought on largely by the pandemic when demand for PC equipment went up), both Team Green and Team Red were probably hoping a lot more would be keen on the RTX 4000 or RX 7000 series.

That doesn’t seem to be the case, and if what the reports are saying is anything to go by, the 4060 Ti 16GB isn’t really going to do well, either. Maybe Nvidia has an ace up its sleeve for future releases. Maybe Intel will just swoop in and clean up instead. Stranger things have happened.
