Gigabyte has seemingly revealed the reminiscence configurations for Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4060 and GeForce RTX 4070 graphics playing cards by way of its Gigabyte Management Heart software program. There are not any surprises, because the Ada Lovelace-based add-in-boards will carry 8GB and 12GB of reminiscence, respectively, in line with VideoCardz.
Model 23.03.02.01 Gigabyte’s Management Heart app provides help for the Gigabyte RTX 4070 Aero OC 12GB (GV-N4070AERO OC-12G) and the Gigabyte RTX 4060 Gaming OC 8GB (GV-N4060GAMING OC-8GD) merchandise, revealing their reminiscence capacities. The reminiscence kind (GDDR6X or GDDR6) is not confirmed but, although rumors pin the 4070 with GDDR6X and the 4060 with common GDDR6.
We have been already fairly certain that Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4070 would have the identical 192-bit 12GB GDDR6X reminiscence subsystem because the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, for the reason that two merchandise are based mostly on the identical AD104 GPU. The important thing distinction appears to be utilizing fewer energetic CUDA cores on the 4070. Will the GeForce RTX 4070 find yourself in our checklist of the greatest graphics playing cards? We’ll have to attend and see. Listed below are the tentative specs.
|Header Cell – Column 0||GPU||FP32 CUDA Cores||Reminiscence Configuration||TBP||MSRP|
|GeForce RTX 4090 Ti||AD102||18176 (?)||24GB 384-bit 24 GT/s GDDR6X (?)||600W (?)||?|
|GeForce RTX 4090||AD102||16384||24GB 384-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X||450W||$1,599|
|GeForce RTX 4080||AD103||9728||16GB 256-bit 22.4 GT/s GDDR6X||320W||$1,199|
|GeForce RTX 4070 Ti||AD104||7680||12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X||285W||$799|
|GeForce RTX 4070||AD104||5888 (?)||12GB 192-bit 21 GT/s GDDR6X (?)||250W (?)||<$650?|
|GeForce RTX 4060 Ti||AD106||4352 (?)||8GB 128-bit 18 GT/s GDDR6 (?)||160W (?)||<$500?|
|GeForce RTX 3070||GA104||5888||8GB 256-bit 14 GT/s GDDR6||220W||$499|
In some ways, 8GB of GDDR6 reminiscence on Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060 may be thought of as a downgrade from the GeForce RTX 3060, which carries 12GB of GDDR6 reminiscence. Nvidia’s AD107 and AD106 graphics processors that energy the corporate’s GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti merchandise solely characteristic a 128-bit reminiscence interface (in line with unofficial info), so it might solely be doable to make use of these these GPUs with 8GB or 16GB of reminiscence — and the latter choice might not be precisely possible for value causes, as it might require utilizing reminiscence on each side of the PCB in “clamshell” mode (much like the RTX 3090).
Nvidia is predicted to launch its GeForce RTX 4070 with 12GB of reminiscence on April 13, 2023. The product will likely be positioned under the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti that has been available on the market for a few months now, however it’s unclear how a lot Nvidia plans to cost for its vanilla GeForce RTX 4070. Given the specs, efficiency will likely be fairly a bit decrease than the 4070 Ti, suggesting the worth would should be beneath $650 to make a lot sense, and even that might probably be too excessive.
Plans for the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti are even much less clear. Final week we noticed pictures of an alleged GeForce RTX 4060 Founders Version board, which can be thought of as a affirmation that Nvidia is engaged on this product. But, it stays to be seen when the GeForce RTX 4060 will hit the cabinets and at what value. With the outgoing 3060 and 3060 Ti sitting at $329 and $399, respectively, we think about $499 can be concerning the highest value most potential patrons can be prepared to contemplate.
