GeForce RTX 4060 is coming in July, $299 price, specs, and performance revealed
NVIDIA has confirmed that the GeForce RTX 3060 successor, the GeForce RTX 4060, is coming in July, though with pricing starting from USD 299. That's right, a price lower than the previous generation's equivalent GPU. Yep, the GeForce RTX 4060 launch price is lower than the RTX 3060's USD 329 and the RTX 2060's USD 349 - a first for the GeForce RTX 40 Series, and great news for mainstream GPU pricing going forward.
As far as performance goes, NVIDIA has showcased 1080p benchmark results for the RTX 4060 and what to expect - with the RTX 4060 delivering a 1.2X increase (20%) in rasterized performance over the RTX 3060 and a 1.6X increase (60%) over the RTX 2060 on average.
As part of the GeForce RTX 40 Series, the RTX 4060 will benefit from new RTX technologies like DLSS 3 and Frame Generation, which sees these performance increase numbers jump to 1.7X when compared to the RTX 3060 and 2.3X when compared to the RTX 2060. DLSS and DLSS 3 adoption has seen astronomical growth in recent years, so the addition of Frame Generation to a mainstream GPU is impressive to see.

NVIDIA announces the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, 8GB model for $399 and 16GB for $499
After months of speculation and leaks, NVIDIA has formally announced the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, with an 8GB model coming May 24 for USD 399 and a 16GB model in July for USD 499. During the presentation for the new GPUs, NVIDIA did note that outside of the difference in VRAM capacity, both models feature the same underlying specs.
For the 8GB model coming on May 24, the MSRP of USD399 is in line with previous-generation graphics cards, the RTX 3060 Ti and the RTX 2060 SUPER. In terms of expected in-game performance, which is the big question for many out there, 1080p gaming on the new RTX 4060 Ti will deliver a 1.15X increase (15%) in rasterized performance compared to the RTX 3060 Ti and a 1.6X increase (60%) over the RTX 2060 SUPER.
Like other GeForce RTX 40 Series models, the new RTX 4060 Ti will benefit from RTX technologies exclusive to the Ada Lovelace architecture, including AV1 encoding for content creators and DLSS 3 rendering with the AI-enhanced Frame Generation. With Frame Generation enabled (in supported titles), the performance increase compared to the RTX 3060 Ti jumps up to 1.7X, with that figure rising to an impressive 2.6X compared to the RTX 2060 SUPER.

AMD RX 7600 GPU specs spilled ahead of imminent NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti launch
AMD's Radeon RX 7600 GPU, the firm's purported response to the imminent NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti, has witnessed another spec leak, this time from GPU-Z.
The GPU-Z info was sent over to VideoCardz, and it underlines previous speculation, showing that the RX 7600 is set to run with 2,048 Stream Processors (graphics cores).
The RX 7600 will be equipped with 8GB of GDDR6 video memory and a 128-bit bus, if the spec details provided aren't fabricated somehow (as always, we must leave some room for doubt with any leak).

AMD RX 7600 GPUs spotted at retailer - and price is in line with rumors
AMD's RX 7600 is theoretically set to hit shelves next week, and we've just spotted another leaked price for the GPU - this time at a Canadian retailer.
VideoCardz spotted the product listings at PC Canada (thanks to a keen-eyed reader) for two models of the RX 7600, the first of which was the (much-leaked-already) Sapphire Pulse graphics card priced at $452 (Canadian), which roughly converts to $335 in the US.
The other product, an MSI Mech 2X Classic spin on the RX 7600, was listed at $444 (Canadian) or about $339 in the US. (Interestingly, that MSI listing has now been yanked down, but the above Sapphire card remains - it may not by the time you read this, mind).

NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti leak shows it's not much faster than 3060 Ti, but don't panic
NVIDIA's RTX 4060 Ti has been spotted in a leaked benchmark that gives us an idea of performance - sort of - and imparts more info on the spec front, matching up with previous rumors.
The Geekbench 5 result was flagged up by Benchleaks on Twitter, a common source of, erm, benchmark leaks as you might guess (spotted by VideoCardz).
It shows a PC with an NVIDIA RTX 4060 Ti that has 4,352 CUDA cores, backing up what we've already heard from the rumor mill as to this graphic card's core configuration. The boost speed is shown hitting 2.54GHz, too.

Intrel Arc Graphics driver release adds game support and updates Arc Control
Intel's latest Game On Driver for Intel Arc Graphics is here, supporting some new PC game releases like Starship Troopers: Extermination, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, and the online co-op horror of The Outlast Trials.
When it comes to the in-game performance for the fun-looking riff on a classic sci-fi film, Starship Troopers: Extermination, Intel notes that the Intel Arc A750 Graphics card can deliver better greater-than-60fps performance than the GeForce RTX 3060 12Gb at both 1080p and 1440p using the 'Epic' and 'High' settings respectively. The game also supports Intel's DLSS-like AI upscaling in the form of Intel XeSS - which can help push 1440p performance to around 115fps.
For next week's launch of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, the new Game On Driver will lead to a smooth 60fps on the Intel Arc A750. Another Intel XeSS highlight for the new driver release is support for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to support the recent next-gen update that brought ray tracing and more advanced visuals to the iconic RPG. XeSS will allow for near 60fps performance using the game's demanding Ultra settings on the Intel Arc A750, though that's using the XeSS 'Performance' mode.

Report on poor RTX 4070 sales casts doubt on NVIDIA's appetite for gaming GPUs
NVIDIA's RTX 4070 graphics card sales are flagging more than expected, if a new report is to be believed.
IT Home, a regular source of leaks from China - but one that must be treated with some caution in our books - claims it has heard that NVIDIA is extending the pause on the manufacturing of RTX 4070 chips for longer than originally intended.
That original plan had been to take a break from shipping RTX 4070 GPUs to Chinese graphics card makers for one month, to let unexpectedly sluggish levels of sales catch up with the existing stock out there (and the graphics cards coming through already in the pipeline).

NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti could be on borrowed time, so get ready for some GPU bargains
NVIDIA's RTX 3060 Ti is about to exit stage left, with Team Green planning to cease production of the GPU imminently - the GA104 chip, specifically - if chatter from the grapevine is correct.
Benchlife brings the news that NVIDIA no longer supplies GeForce RTX 3060 Ti chips to its graphics card manufacturing partners (with the Chinese tech site hearing about this directly from those Add-in board makers).
As you likely realize, time is being called on production due to the incoming RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti models (the latter will supposedly come in 8GB and 16GB variants).

How fast is AMD's RX 7900 XTX with no power limit? It can match the RTX 4090 GPU
AMD's RDNA 3 flagship GPU can match its Lovelace rival, the RTX 4090, just about, as a new experiment with the Radeon RX 7900 XTX proved - but there are some weighty caveats here.
PC Gamer spotted that an intrepid 7900 XTX owner conducted a test inspired by the question: "What could the 7900 XTX do if AMD didn't handicap it with highly restrictive power limits?"
That person, Jedi95, then detailed the results of juicing up their ASUS TUF Radeon RX 7900 XTX to the max on Reddit, and it makes for very interesting reading.

Price drops in China give us hope for a cheaper NVIDIA RTX 4080 GPU in the US
NVIDIA's RTX 4080 graphics card is falling fast in price over in Asia, giving us hope that it'll drop by similarly hefty percentages compared to the MSRP in the US.
As Wccftech points out (via VideoCardz), the Manli Gallardo model of the RTX 4080 can now be had for 7399 RMB in China, representing a 22% drop from the suggested retail price of 9499 RMB.
The same level of price drop in the US would mean you could get an RTX 4080 for $1,060, which, as Wccftech observes, is about $50 cheaper than the lowest price tag seen so far.
