NVIDIA’s mainstream GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 graphics cards have appeared in the EEC after being listed by a Chinese graphics card manufacturer. Shangke Group, which owns MaxSun and Soyo graphics card manufacturers, listed the two unreleased graphics cards in an EEC filing.
These NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs are mentioned alongside the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 in the EEC listing, and it’s worth noting that no RTX 4070 Ti or any “Ti” card is mentioned.
RTX 4060 & RTX 4050 listing is meaningless as it simply indicates that NVIDIA’s partners are aware that the cards will be released at some point
When it comes to these upcoming mid-range GPUs, the RTX 4060Ti is expected to offer a significant boost in efficiency with a 160W TGP, but overall performance may not be as good as the high-end parts. The card’s performance is said to be comparable to the GeForce RTX 3070/Ti, which will be a deciding factor based on its price.
As a result, the 4060 (Non-Ti) should be comparable to or slightly slower than a 4060 with a TGP of 130-150W. The upcoming NVIDIA 4050 GPU is expected to include the AD107 GPU core and a 128-bit bus interface, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Both these upcoming 4060 and 4050 GPUs will be classified as mainstream.
The RTX 3050 debuted at $249 USD and the RTX 3060 debuted at $329 USD, so NVIDIA will have to think twice before raising the prices on these mainstream cards, as doing so could negatively impact their reception in the mass consumer market at launch.
