NVIDIA has initiated the mass production of the next two Ada Lovelace graphics cards, claims a report from WCCFTech. Both the SKUs will be based on the AD104 die that also powers the recently released GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. The AD104-250 and AD104-251 will form the backbone of the RTX 4060 Ti, and RTX 4070, respectively. These GPUs will be paired with the PG14 SKU 343 PCB and the PG141 SKU 345 PCB.
The GeForce RTX 4070 is said to feature 5,888 FP32 cores, the same as its predecessor, which indicates a similar strategy for the RTX 4060 Ti. The 36MB of L2 cache and the 12GB GDDR6X memory @ 21Gbps will bring the bulk of the performance gains. The RTX 3070 and 3060 Ti have an 8GB memory buffer, so their successors should be armed with 12GB of video memory. They will have a TBP of around 200W, removing the need for a 12VHPWR PCIe Gen power connector.
At the time of writing, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti and RTX 4070 don’t have a fixed release date, but you can expect a launch in the second half of 2023. Mass production of the AD104-250 SKU is slated to begin in late February, followed by the AD104-251 in the second half of March.
