If you’ve been waiting for Nvidia to finally release RTX 4000 series desktop graphics cards that won’t make your bank panic if you buy one, then you’ll be happy to see a new rumor suggesting Team Green may finally be gearing up to the introduction of inexpensive Lovelace GPUs.
as The VideoCardz website has been noticed (opens in a new tab)a well-known graphics card leak on Twitter has posted what it claims is a schedule of upcoming Nvidia GPU launches.
As you can see from the tweet below, MEGAsizeGPU hints that Nvidia will release the RTX 4060 Ti desktop GPU in late May, followed by the 4050 in June. According to the leaker, a desktop 4060 GPU is also coming, but a release date has yet to be determined.
Release Date：Desktop 4060Ti – Late May Desktop 4050-June Desktop 4060-Not yet decidedMarch 29, 2023
If these launch plans are true, it’s good news for PC gamers – and bad news for AMD, Nvidia’s rival who has taken over the market when it comes to the best cheap graphics cards of this generation.
Nvidia’s current collection of RTX 4000 series desktop GPUs, the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 Ti, are no doubt impressive pieces of the kit, but they’re all high-end cards that come with big prices, and this has left gamers on a budget, to feel a bit neglected by Nvidia.
Nvidia has released more modest GPUs for laptops, so we’re eagerly awaiting their desktop counterparts. First of all, it’s important for Nvidia to understand that not everyone can afford high-end GPUs, and the introduction of Lovelace technology to cheaper GPUs means gamers can enjoy features like DLSS 3.
Historically, some of the world’s most popular GPUs have been the Nvidia GTX 1060, RTX 2060, and RTX 3060 – due to their balance between value and performance. I can imagine the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti in particular could be big hits when – and if – they launch.
Nvidia’s focus on the entry-level market will certainly put pressure on AMD and Intel. While Nvidia’s market lead remains huge, AMD’s tactic of releasing cheaper GPUs made sense, winning over gamers who simply can’t afford Nvidia’s offerings.
Meanwhile, Intel, which is a relatively new player in the desktop GPU market, has also been moderately successful in this market. Both wisely avoided trying to compete with Nvidia on raw power. But if Team Green is really about to launch an attack on the primary market, things could be getting started Very interesting.
