Nvidia Preparing Two RTX 40 Desktop Graphics Cards

New report suggests Nvidia is working on two new GeForce RTX 40 desktop graphics cards based on the AD104 GPU die.

Based on a Rumor

The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti just released a couple of days ago on January 5th with a price tag of $799 to join its bigger siblings, the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 graphics cards, yet we’re starting to see more rumors surrounding Nvidia’s upcoming budget RTX 40 cards.

According to a new report, Wccftech claims that Nvidia is preparing to begin mass production for two brand new desktop RTX 40 graphics cards, with production set to start sometime during the next month.

The two new SKUs will be based on the AD104 GPU die, which is the same GPU used to power the RTX 4070 Ti, however, according to the report, the two new SKUs will feature a heavily cutdown version of the AD104 GPU.

Wccftech also revealed the board SKU numbers for these new cards as well as the name of the GPU die variants, one card will feature the AD104-250 GPU with PG141-SKU343 board designation, while the other will feature the AD104-251 GPU with board PG141-SKU345 board designation.

Both cards are rumored to have 200 W TGP, with mass production planned mid February for the AD104-250 GPU, followed by mid March production for the AD104-251 GPU. That would put the arrival of these graphics cards to the market at the second quarter of the year at the earliest, and possibly even the second half of the year.

Now what’s interesting about this, is that according to previous leaks (Courtesy of @kopite7kimi) for the RTX 4070, the card was rumored to also be based on the AD104 die with 5888 CUDA cores, however, it would based on the AD104-250-A1 GPU die with PG141-SKU336/337 board designation and 250 W TGP, while the RTX 4060 Ti was also rumored to be based on the AD106 GPU die.

It is possible these were preliminary specs set at an earlier date and the company changed its mind, but so far nothing is certain, and certainly there is no information regarding the price of the budget cards, these are just rumors so treat them as such.
