So with the launch of the Nvidia RTX 4070, all eyes are on the expected release of the Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti, but don’t get your hopes up, even if recent reports are doing well. I can’t.
At least that’s what Red Gaming Tech said
(opens in new tab)That source puts the RTX 4060 Ti’s price tag at $450, or $50 more than the RTX 3060 Ti it replaces. That’s an increase of about 13% across generations. or The RTX 3060 Ti was already more expensive than it should have been. that launched.
The RTX 4060 Ti’s performance goals appear to be on par with the RTX 3070, but factoring in DLSS 3 and frame generation, we can expect better performance than the RTX 3070 during gaming.
when These features are enabled in game. Obviously this is not always the case.
And given that prices are going up everywhere, it’s no surprise that Nvidia’s will go up as well. But he has one problem. no one has money Additionally, putting the GPU out of the reach of gamers who missed out on entire GPU generations due to cryptominers and scalpers his bots is a great way to make loyal customers very bitter.
To be clear, this is one rumor, and until we actually get more official information from Nvidia, all things to take into account. And with so many “leaks” about Nvidia’s Lovelace series pricing gone wrong, we can’t throw our hands up in complete exasperation. If you start charging for , you’ll get a disrespectful wake up call from gamers.
Nvidia burns a lot of fans if its budget card is priced too high
Not a single Lovelace card sold at the previous price. As a fellow PC gamer
(opens in new tab) Point out that this becomes increasingly unreasonable the further down the GPU stack you go.
The Nvidia RTX 4090 was circling the RTX 3090 Ti, making silly numbers against the rest of the Ampere generation. Given that, this was a much more acceptable trade-off. A price increase of around 7% for a card that performs 50-60% better at 4K? This seemed pretty reasonable, at least compared to the pricing of the 3090 and 3090 Ti.
Then came the RTX 4080. It’s priced on par with the RTX 3080 Ti and completely out of the conversation on that basis. The RTX 4070 Ti was better, but not as big. The RTX 4070 is close to what many gamers can afford right now.
And just like the RTX 4070 offered the performance of the RTX 3080 (and even the performance of the RTX 3080 Ti) at $599 (a 20% price increase over the RTX 3070), at this point Nvidia has reduced the price of the RTX 4060 Ti to Similarly improved performance works in line with expectations.
But what’s the point of this if gamers can’t afford the card they’re trying to sell? It doesn’t seem like gamers are jumping on the chance to buy a 4070 at MSRP, as many of them probably can’t afford to pay $600 for a GPU and are waiting for the RTX 4060 Ti to finally make the leap. prize.
So Nvidia could be in real trouble if it brings price hikes to these gamers and leaves our chosen successor as the best graphics card of the previous generation out of reach.
this It’s the card most of them have been waiting for.
AMD, in particular, has yet to announce the Radeon RX 7800 XT, let alone more budget-friendly cards further down the stack. And if these cards are as good as we’ve seen with the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX, Nvidia may be royally annoyed by what is arguably the most important graphics card release of the year.
Honestly, Nvidia, keep your MSRP the same as last time for this one card. The extra $50 card isn’t worth it.
