For those eagerly awaiting the next mid-range beast from Nvidia, the question on everyone’s minds is: “When is the RTX 4060 Ti release time?” According to Nvidia, the official RTX 4060 Ti release date is May 24th, 2023. Following this, Nvidia has confirmed in an official announcement it will launch the non-Ti variant of the RTX 4060 a month later in July.

For the initial 4060 Ti 8GB card, we’re predicting the 4060 Ti release time to be:

  • 6am PST
  • 9am EST
  • 2pm BST

These times are based on previous launches and are unconfirmed by Nvidia. However, we do think these timings are likely, seeing at the company tends to be pretty methodical about its releases.

This predicted timeline offers a fascinating insight into Nvidia’s strategic planning. By launching the more powerful RTX 4060 Ti first, Nvidia sets a high bar for the new generation of hardware. The subsequent release of the RTX 4060, slightly lower in specifications but also price, allows Nvidia to offer a more accessible entry point into its new family of GPUs. This strategy has been successful for Nvidia in the past, capturing a wider range of consumers with diverse budget constraints and performance requirements.

Nvidia Release Patterns

A look at the release history of Nvidia’s 30-series offers some insight, though it may be a somewhat skewed pattern to observe. The Covid-19 pandemic had significant effects on tech releases, specifically on the graphics card industry, leading to unprecedented delays and supply chain issues. Nevertheless, this history may still offer some clues about when we can expect the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti to hit the market.

  • RTX 3080: September 2020
  • RTX 3090: September 2020
  • RTX 3070: October 2020
  • RTX 3060 Ti: December 2020
  • RTX 3060: February 2021

This was quite a departure from the typical staggered release schedule we’re used to seeing from Nvidia. It seems that the 40-series Ada Lovelace GPUs are following a different trajectory, with only the RTX 4090, 4080, and 4070 Ti released by this point in 2023.

In light of the existing data, while the pattern of Nvidia’s past releases might suggest a varied timeline, the current rumors converge toward a singular prediction. Thus, despite the historical unpredictability, we have a significant degree of confidence in stating that the RTX 4060 Ti will sport a launch date of May 24th. 

It’s unclear exactly when the non-Ti Nvidia RTX 4060 will make its grand entry, either dropping in the first half of July or the second half of July. Both come highly regarded with some great performance upgrades, higher resolutions, RT cores, and more in the specs category.

The RTX 4060 Ti release time should potentially hit stores by 9 AM EST as per previous launches, but it’s not a guarantee. Availability is subject to change on a whim, too, as these cards will most likely sell out almost immediately upon their official launch.

As we anticipate this next leap in graphics technology, it’s fascinating to consider how this release will once again redefine our gaming, graphic processing, and frame generation expectations.

How much is the 4060 Ti going to cost?

The price of the RTX 4060 Ti will be $399 for the 8GB model and $499 for the 16GB model.
