NVIDIA has halted the supply of the GeForce RTX 4070 and 4080 GPUs to its partners as channel inventory has started to overflow. According to Igor’s Lab, these two SKUs have been largely ignored by gamers in favor of the RTX 4070 Ti and the 4090. While the production of these chips is ongoing, the supply to AIBs has been temporarily halted until inventory clears up.
The flagship market is unaffected, where enthusiasts continue to buy the RTX 4090 in hordes while the usual RTX 4070/4080 crowd shifts towards entry-level offerings. The RTX 4070 Ti remains a favorite among upper midrange buyers, leaving the 4080 and 4070 as outliers.
This leaves us with the yet-to-be-launched GeForce RTX 4060 Ti. Igor’s sources confirm that the midrange GPU will land sometime in late May. Since the RTX 4070 at its $599 MSRP has also failed to sell, it’d be reasonable to believe that the RTX 4060 Ti will cost a more appealing $399.
All this info is subject to change and should be taken with a grain of salt. Future demand for the RTX 4070 will greatly impact the fate of the RTX 4060 Ti, and we may yet see the inventory stabilize before launch.
