According to sources, NVIDIA will release two new GPUs from the GeForce RTX 40 line based on a chip AD104which is used in the recently introduced GeForce RTX 4070 Ti with a full variant, but the new ones will have significantly reduced dies.
These cards will have chips NVIDIA AD104-250 and AD104-251, and the RTX 4070 Ti uses a die marked AD104-400-A1, so you can see how reduced the chip will actually turn out. Interestingly, the chip designation 251 and 250 gives the impression that both will have a very similar configuration, although this is not certain yet.

The circuit board for the AD104-250 GPU will be used under the name PG14 sample 343, and for the GPU AD104-251 – printed circuit board PG141 Pattern 345. The NVIDIA Geforce RTX 4070 Ti is also based on the Pattern 331 PG141 PCB, so board partners don’t have to invest a lot of engineering effort into new chips.
These GPUs are reported to have TGP 200 W, but these parameters may change. The AD104-250 chip will be the first to go into production in the second half of February, followed by the AD104-251, which will go into mass production in the second half of March. There is currently no release date for each card, but it will most likely be the second half of 2023, at the Computex 2023 event.
Past leaks have shown specs GeForce RTX 4070 with 5888 CUDA cores, 12GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X VRAM, 36MB of L2 cache, and 250W TGP, while RTX 4060 Ti presumably with an AD106 GPU, but it is possible that this may not happen.
This information has just been leaked, so it’s possible that the old specs were also correct, but have since, for example, been retired by the RTX 4080 12GB and renamed 4070 Ti. These rumors should be treated with skepticism, and wait for information in the coming weeks, when the production of new AD104 chips begins.
