Gigabyte seems to know something we don’t about the Nvidia RTX 4060 and RTX 4070, as the manufacturer appears to have named two unannounced models. While rumors suggest that the Nvidia RTX 4070 release date is imminent, the confirmation also provides new information about the RTX 4060 specs.
If the rumors are to be believed, the Nvidia RTX 4070 will join its best graphics card friends on the battlefield next month. Of course, if you’re familiar with GPU rumors, you know that the company has changed its mind at the last minute, which means it’s best to never rely solely on speculation.
However, there is now even more reason to believe that shiny new GeForce cards are coming soon, as Gigabyte’s Control Center update explicitly mentions RTX 4060 and 4070. Spotted by Videocardz, software version 23.03.02.01 appears to support the gigabyte load. The 12GB RTX 4070 Aero OC and 8GB RTX 4060 Gaming OC are two non-standard factory overclocked models.
Naturally, Gigabyte’s announcement adds weight to recent rumors, including rumors that the RTX 4060 will have the same GPU as its laptop counterpart. Patch notes and previous leaks suggest that the desktop card will come with 8GB of VRAM, but we’ll have to wait and see if it uses an AD107 chip under the hood.
The prospect of an RTX 4070 with 12 GB of VRAM surprises us less, as it will likely have a lot in common with the already available Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti. Unfortunately, those same similarities could mean it’ll only cost $50 less than its upgraded sibling, meaning we’ll potentially have to wait even longer for a mid-priced card with features.
