New images are circulating online that are thought to depict the Founders Edition of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card. The graphics card is based on Ada Lovelace and has a cooling system similar to other Founders Edition products.
The well-known hardware leaker, @KittyYYuko, has posted images of a graphics card that they claim is Nvidia’s RTX 4060 Founders Edition. The pictures shared are believed to be Nvidia’s upcoming GeForce RTX 4060 Founders Edition graphics card. The card is recognizable by its double-wide cooling system and ‘RTX 4060’ label, distinguishing it from the GeForce RTX 3060 Founders Edition and RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition. However, there is some uncertainty about whether the card is the RTX 4060 Ti.

Nvidia’s upcoming graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti are similar in model numbers but will have different specifications. Sources indicate that the GeForce RTX 4060 will have 3,072 CUDA cores and a 128-bit GDDR6 memory subsystem powered by the AD107 GPU.
In contrast, the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti will feature the AD106 GPU with 4,352 CUDA cores and a 128-bit GDDR6 memory subsystem, offering a significant performance boost of 41%. Both graphics cards are expected to be reasonably priced and have satisfactory performance in testing, potentially earning them spots on the list of the best graphics cards available.
The significant differences in specifications between the Nividia’s RTX 4060 and its Ti version are expected to result in notably better performance from the latter. It is unlikely that Nvidia will release a Founders Edition for the standard GeForce RTX 4060 without also offering one for the higher-performing GeForce RTX 4060 Ti.
However, the recent leak of images showing an unannounced Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition by @KittyYYuko raises questions about Nvidia’s approach to their upcoming Ada Lovelace-based graphics cards. This leak suggests that Nvidia may take a different strategy with their Founders Edition graphics cards for the Ada Lovelace architecture than their previous Ampere-based offerings.
The recent leak of images has sparked speculation about Nvidia’s approach to their upcoming Ada Lovelace-based graphics cards. The leak implies that Nvidia may have a different strategy for their Founders Edition graphics cards for the Ada Lovelace architecture than their previous Ampere-based offerings.
Nvidia recently announced the release of their GeForce RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 graphics cards. Still, surprising news came with it that the company would not be releasing a Founders Edition for the RTX 4080 12GB board, later renamed the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti.
It was unexpected as previous generations of graphics cards, including the GTX 1060 6GB and above, RTX 2060 and above, and RTX 3060 Ti and above, all had Founders Edition models. Nvidia’s Founders Edition graphics cards cater to both end-users and PC manufacturers, making the decision not to release an RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition for $799 rather strange. It is particularly true considering that the card is likely more popular with PC manufacturers than the more expensive GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition, which costs $1,199.
While it is common for companies in the industry to develop products that are ultimately not released, it would be unusual if Nvidia were to cancel or delay the release of the RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition.
It’s essential to remember that the images of Nvidia’s supposed RTX 4060 Founders Edition and RTX 4070 Ti Founders Edition graphics cards are from an unofficial source. Therefore, it is wise to treat the information with some caution.
Nonetheless, as the saying goes, where there is smoke, there is fire, and there could be some truth to the rumors. It is plausible that these images depict products Nvidia is developing and may release.
