A new rumor from a Lenovo China Gaming Desktop Product Planning Manager states that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 is expected to launch this coming summer. VideoCardz has spotted a post on Weibo from user Wolfstame who shared some insight into the still unannounced card.
Rumored details for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060
- ~20% performance increase over the GeForce RTX 3060, putting it on par with a GeForce RTX 3070
- Power consumption could be lower than an RTX 3060 (170 W)
- The price could be ~10% higher than RTX 3060 MSRP ($399) so maybe $438.90
- DLSS3 and NVENC upgrades
- A release date of June 18, 2023
VideoCardz notes that this expected performance uptick may not be realistic since it would only be a minor improvement. However, the xx60 product line has typically had many different SKUs during each generational release cycle. From a Ti variant to multiple versions with different VRAM configurations, and refreshes, the xx60 line has been released in many forms in the past.
As with any rumor this should all be treated as such. It has come to light in recent months that a number of leaks have been faked, from CPUs to GPUs. It is also possible that NVIDIA could alter any plans it already has just as it has done with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB) and the forthcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. AMD is also well known for being competitive in this tier as well and any new RDNA3 cards could also affect what the final NVIDIA GeForce 4060 ends up being at launch.
