Gigabyte seems to know something we don’t about the Nvidia RTX 4060 and RTX 4070, as the manufacturer apparently just mentioned the two unannounced models. While rumors suggest that the Nvidia RTX 4070 release date is imminent, the confirmation also provides information on the new RTX 4060 specs.

If rumors are to be believed, the Nvidia RTX 4070 will join its best graphics card mates on the battlefield next month. Of course, if you’re familiar with the realm of GPU rumors, you’ll know that the company has been known to change its mind at the last minute, which means it’s best never to get your hopes up based on speculation alone. .

However, there is now even more reason to believe that the shiny new GeForce cards are coming soon, as an update from the Gigabyte Control Center directly mentions the RTX 4060 and 4070. Spotted by Videocardz, software version seems be compatible with Be Gigabyte. RTX 4070 Aero OC 12GB and RTX 4060 Gaming OC 8GB: Two custom models that are factory overclocked.

Naturally, the Gigabyte hype adds weight to recent rumors, including rumors that the RTX 4060 will feature the same GPU as its portable counterpart. Patch notes and previous leaks suggest the desktop board will come with 8GB of VRAM, but we’ll have to wait and see if it also uses an AD107 chip under the hood.

We’re less surprised by the possibility of the RTX 4070 having 12GB of VRAM, as it will likely have a lot in common with the already available Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti. Unfortunately, those same similarities could mean it’ll only cost $50 less than its upgraded sibling, meaning we’ll potentially have to wait even longer for a card with mid-range price and capabilities.
