NVIDIA isn’t working on a refresh of its RTX 40 series graphics card. According to well-reputed tipster “@Zed__Wang”, Team Green has no plans of launching a “Super” refresh with wider memory buses and larger VRAM buffers. The Ada Lovelace family has been panned for mediocre gen-over-gen uplifts and higher price tags than Ampere. Many hoped that NVIDIA would launch a “Super” refresh of the RTX 4060, 4070, and 4080 to tackle these complaints.
However, there are no plans for an Ada Lovelace refresh, per the insider. NVIDIA has no reason to release a Super lineup. AMD’s rival Radeon RX 7900 series barely up a fight against the RTX 4070 Ti and 4080. The Radeon RX 7600 features the same base specs as the RTX 4060 Ti while being $40 cheaper to account for the lower ray-tracing performance.
Intel plans to launch an Arc Alchemist refresh later this year, but even those GPUs won’t threaten the RTX 40 lineup much. The RTX 4070 Ti and 4080 are in a league of their own, while the RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti will be back in charge with a few nominal price cuts. Overall, it looks like this will be another cycle dominated by NVIDIA’s RTX offerings.
