Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB could be one of the most anticipated graphics card among gamers. The card promises to combine midrange price with 16GB of memory, which promises higher performance and additional longevity. This add-in-board was expected to be launched in early June, but the company moved its release date to mid-July, a new leak from renowned hardware leaker @Zed_Wang claims.
It's worth noting that even though @Zed_Wang has a credible track record and typically possesses legitimate documents, the plans could alter. Since this source is unofficial, take the launch details with a degree of skepticism.
Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB looks set to be released on July 18, 2023, according to excepts from a document tweeted by Zed__Wang. The 4060 Ti 16GB could join its 8GB variant in the ranks of the best graphics cards. The 16GB model will be based on the same AD106 GPU with 4352 CUDA cores clocked at up to 2540 MHz, though expect Nvidia's AIB partners to offer factory-overclocked version. Meanwhile, 16GB of GDDR6 memory with an 18 GT/s data transfer rate is set to be connected to the GPU using a 128-bit memory bus.
It is expected that Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will carry a higher recommended retail price, possibly around $499. Keeping in mind that there are now many games that benefit from more than 8 GB of onboard memory, and gamers are willing to pay the extra for performance.

It is expected that Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB will maintain 160W thermal graphics power of the 8 GB version. The modest energy use of the upcoming add-in-board should encourage graphics card manufacturers to try out new designs for both printed circuit boards and cooling systems. Thus, we might see compact versions of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB for Mini-ITX PCs or even versions with single-slot coolers. At the same time, keeping in mind that the target audience for the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti are gamers, expect models with enhanced voltage regulating module and huge cooling systems offering enhanced overclocking potential.

Should've been released right from the start. I guess Nvidia finally realized that no gamer in their right mind would ever consider paying a <Mod Edit> load of money for crappy 8 or 12 GB GPUs.Reply

Problem is the 16GB version has $100 higher MSRP making it way overpriced for a 60/60Ti tier card.valthuer said:Should've been released right from the start.

Be that as it may, it's still a good deal, considering the fact that 4070 Ti costs as much as 1,000$ and it only has 12 GBs of VRAM.sizzling said:Problem is the 16GB version has $100 higher MSRP making it way overpriced for a 60/60Ti tier card.
I don’t see how you can call it a good deal, comparing to another terribly priced product doesn’t make it a good deal. If you start believing that then you are falling for NVidia’s pricing and marketing strategy for 4000 series.valthuer said:Be that as it may, it's still a good deal, considering the fact that 4070 Ti costs as much as 1,000$ and it only has 12 GBs of VRAM.
12GB of VRAM is more than enough for games.valthuer said:Be that as it may, it's still a good deal, considering the fact that 4070 Ti costs as much as 1,000$ and it only has 12 GBs of VRAM.
That is not a GOOD DEAL. 4060 Ti should've been equipped with 12GB+ VRAM for $299 and called the 4060. The 4060 we got is a 4050 Ti. So the 4060 Ti is 50% overpriced and the $30 of 8GB VRAM they are asking $100. Despite even all that it's a $499 GPU pushing memory through a 128-bit bus like sucking golf ball through a garden hose. Should've been 192-bit bus like its predecessor.valthuer said:Be that as it may, it's still a good deal, considering the fact that 4070 Ti costs as much as 1,000$ and it only has 12 GBs of VRAM.
Nvidia is lost. Too many "Tis" and "Supers" have totally lost sight of what this card is supposed to be. There used to be just the x60 and the x80. Then they shoved an x70 in there, then created a Titan-like x90. With all these Ti's in between, the x60 has gone from 2nd best, to midrange, to entry level but the prices do not reflect its entry level performance. It should perform at least as well as a 4070 for $399 and up.

Prices are not gonna drop any time soon. The GPU market will never go back to the way it was a few years back.
Not falling for anything.
As things stand right now, 4090 is the only graphics card worthy in this latest generation of Nvidia GPUs.
The rest of them, are mostly crappy or otherwise overpriced cards.
However, a 16 GB 4060 Ti, would be a good way to start improving this series, especially considering the fact that the next 16 GB GPU in the RTX 40 series, is 4080, which could cost as much as 1,300$.

Try telling that to games like Far Cry 6, Resident Evil 4 remake and The Last Of Us, that, even at 1080p, will CTD with Direct 3D fatal errors, if you try and raise the settings.
Maybe 12 GBs were OK for yesterday's games.
Since when is 500 midrange?Reply
Stop normalizing $500 as midrangeReply
