Nvidia’s rumored plan for budget GPUs doesn’t involve the RTX 4060

Nvidia is set to phase out the older and slower variant of its RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, and will only sell the newer 3060 Ti with faster video memory, if the rumor mill is right – with potential ramifications therein for Team Green’s mid-range GPU strategy, and the RTX 4060 (we’ll come back to that).

First off, let’s look at the rumor itself, which comes from a regular source of speculation in China, MyDrivers (opens in new tab) (as flagged by VideoCardz (opens in new tab)). The source claims that third-party graphics card manufacturers are now in the process of gradually – but assuredly – ​​getting rid of the original, slower version of the 3060 Ti.
