NVIDIA is reportedly launching three RTX 4060s in May, namely the 8GB GeForce RTX 4060 and the 8GB and 16GB GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. Today, a leak seems to anticipate the RTX 4060 Ti 8GB launch datewhich could hit the market a few days earlier than expected.
According to several rumors of the past few weeks, in fact, the RTX 4060 will be launched at Computex in Taiwan, set between May 30 and June 2 next. Specifically, GPUs should be presented during the keynote inaugural of Computexwhich on the other hand will be taught by Jensen Huang, the CEO of NVIDIA itself.
The portal VideoCardZHowever, one of the most trusted sources in the video card industry has revealed that the RTX 4060 It will reach you on May 24thabout a week before the opening conference of the kermesse of Taipei. The website, which refers to internal sources at NVIDIA itself, explicitly confirms only the launch date of the RTX 4060 Ti 8 GB, so it remains to be seen whether Team Verde will decide to launch the other two GPUs of the lineup at the same juncture or if, instead, the latter will come really kept aside until Computexwith a “two stroke” throw.
In this second case, however, NVIDIA’s strategy would be difficult to understand: why break the launch of the RTX 4060 Ti in two, while keeping the higher VRAM model of the card (by far the more interesting of the two) up to Computex? At this point, it would be more logical to think that the two RTX 4060 Ti can be launched together on May 24, while the RTX 4060 will be presented at Computex and the RTX 4050 – if it really exists – will arrive at the end of June.
In all likelihood, NVIDIA’s move would depend on essentially commercial reasonsor from the desire to anticipate the launch of AMD’s Radeon RX 7600, which according to the insiders would be scheduled for May 25th. If this were true, however, it would make even more sense for NVIDIA to launch the 16 GB RTX 4060 Ti, instead of the 8 GB one, on May 24, in order to nullify the entire marketing campaign of the Red Team, which focused precisely on the reduced quantities VRAM of rival company’s mid-range video cards.
