Photos of unreleased NVIDIA graphics cards have surfaced online through the efforts of an insider hiding under the alias KittyYukko. We are talking about the reference versions of the graphics accelerators GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition and GeForce RTX 4060 Founders Edition.
Keep in mind that NVIDIA did not release the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card in the Founders Edition version. Nevertheless, NVIDIA has released a reference version of the circuit board of this graphics card, on which the company’s partners are already installing their own cooling systems. In addition, maps are of course also issued on non-reference boards. Now photos of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition PCB have surfaced on the web that NVIDIA didn’t want to publish.
The reference version of the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti should receive a cooling system that would generally repeat the design of the older GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 models in the Founders Edition.
The insider also shared photos of the GeForce RTX 4060 Founders Edition model. According to the source, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti model can get the same cooling system. Whether NVIDIA plans to actually release reference versions of these graphics card models, or whether it will eventually be abandoned, as was the case with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, is unknown.
Rumors attribute the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti model to an AD106-350 graphics processor with 4352 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with support for a 128-bit interface. The power consumption of this accelerator model is said to be 160 watts.
The GeForce RTX 4060 model will use the AD107-400 GPU, which will contain 3072 CUDA cores. This model also gets 8GB of GDDR6 memory with support for a 128-bit bus. The power consumption of this model is 115 watts. Both graphics cards get PCIe 4.0 interfaces with support for eight PCIe lanes.
