Nvidia RTX 4060 and 4050 GPUs spotted – but don’t expect too much
Nvidia’s RTX 4060 and 4050 Desktops graphics card – Lovelace GPUs are of interest to most people due to their (hopefully) affordable nature – possibly launching sooner than expected.
Tom’s Hardware (opens in a new tab) discovered that the RTX 4060 and 4050 models of Shangke Group – a Chinese company that makes graphics cards and other components – have been submitted to the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission).
Usually, products are filed with the EEC when it comes to release, so this is a hint that the RTX 4060 and 4050 are probably more forthcoming than rumors have indicated.
Then again, we must be very cautious about inferring too much from the EEC records, as they can be done prematurely in some cases or they can even be made speculatively. for placeholder products.
In short, don’t book too many outlets on these lists, but they’re nonetheless a tempting hint that we could see the RTX 4060 and 4050 desktop graphics cards arrive in the near future (or indeed they’re). We will settle for one of these GPUs to be phased out soon).
Analysis: Reason for doubt
The case against the arrival of the early RTX 4060 and 4050 is based mainly on the lack of rumors of these models on the GPU information system so far (as product development continues to go downhill, there are usually rumors and leaks).
That said, we’ve actually been hearing a bit more about the RTX 4060 Ti lately – quite a bit actually, though it Not the news that many people want to hear about how powerful this GPU is. But for the vanilla RTX 4060, most speculation revolves around how long we might have to wait for this graphics card – like mid-2023, maybe.
In addition, we also need to consider that Nvidia still has stock of the RTX 3000 series for sale (or their partners have), and therefore any mid-range release will have to wait until then. The inventory of GPUs like the RTX 3060 is significantly reduced.
Furthermore, we’ve heard almost nothing about the RTX 4050, save the laptop GPU news. Of course, both the RTX 4050 and 4060 laptop versions have been revealed and are about to be sold as portable, but those mobile graphics cards are very different fish than the desktop variants. desktop computer.
In short, we don’t believe in the idea that the RTX 4060 and 4050 are coming, but we’re certainly happy enough to take this as an expected signal that maybe at least one of these cards – RTX 4060, most likely – will probably increase in price in a few months (and maybe the 4060 Ti too). If we’re lucky. And really a lot can depend on how the overall GPU market price in terms of get rid of that RTX 3000 stockwhatever Nvidia may have planned right now and may have told its manufacturing partners to expect.
