NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060Ti Graphics Cards are the latest addition to the GeForce 40 Series card selection at Best Buy for Canadians. GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, powered by NVIDIA’s new Ada Lovelace architecture, became available at Best Buy late last year. On May 24th, the new 8GB RTX 4060Ti graphics cards will be available to order online across Canada and soon afterward will become available in select stores.
This article will help you learn about these new graphics cards, and explain the process to purchase one for yourself. Selection and quantities will vary. Also, household limits may be added for some products, depending on changes in demand and stock levels.
New graphics cards feature Ada Lovelace architecture
NVIDIA has launched the third generation of its RTX architecture, building on the RTX 30 Series’ Ampere. This version is called Ada Lovelace, a nod to the 19th century mathematician who has been widely recognized as a computing pioneer and the first computer programmer. This new architecture features third generation dedicated Ray Tracing cores and fourth generation Tensor cores.
Ray tracing is extremely taxing to GPUs with the rendering requiring tracking millions of light rays striking different materials from different angles. NVIDIA’s new Shader Execution Reordering (SER) makes these workloads more efficient, with up to twice the performance of the previous generation. This translates into in-game frame rates that are up to 25% faster. These third generation Ray Tracing Cores also introduce new Opacity Micro-Map Engines and Micro-Mesh Engines for additional performance gains.
All-new fourth generation Tensor Cores enable and enhance the processing of AI technologies including DLSS, which is available in over 280 games and applications. In addition to DLSS Super Resolution which boosts performance by using a neural network to reconstruct lower resolution inputs, DLSS 3—which is exclusive to RTX 40 Series GPUs—uses AI to create entirely new frames, multiplying performance. A new Optical Flow Accelerator works to feed pixel motion data into the DLSS neural network (read more about DLSS here). NVIDIA says this generates new frames on the GPU so performance is accelerated even in scenarios where the computer’s CPU is a bottleneck.
The RTX 30 Series’ DLSS 2 boosted frame rates by up to 2X, but the RTX 40 Series’ DLSS 3 can boost frame rates by up to 4X. Even better, the Ada architecture delivers these big performance gains while consuming less power on average while gaming.
The new RTX 4060Ti graphics cards deliver substantial performance gains over previous generation cards. For example, Nvidia says you can expect up to 2.6 times faster performance than the RTX 2060 Super and 1.7 times faster performance than the popular RTX 3060Ti. Both of those earlier cards were considered exceptional for 1080p gaming. Now you will have even better gaming performance and likely have a better chance of winning with the new RTX 4060Ti card.
How can you obtain an NVIDIA Graphics card
The new 8GB RTX 4060Ti cards will be available at Best Buy, online from May24th at 6 am (Pacific). Best Buy and NVIDIA are hoping to make these cards available to more Canadian gamers who are ready to upgrade their gaming performance. Selection will vary and will change rapidly. Additionally, the cards will appear in select stores soon after the launch day. Here are some tips to help you find the right card for your needs.
- Find the graphics card that you would like to purchase online at Best Buy, then check to see if any stock is still available. Also check if the card you selected is available at your local Best Buy store.
- Place your order online for free home delivery or if it is in stock at your local store, select to reserve the card you selected so you can pick it up.
Please be aware that household limits are in place for RTX 40 Series graphics cards with a limit of one RTX 4060Ti card per household. Selection and quantities will likely change over time and we provide no assurances about any particular make or model being available.
Where and when to find GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards
At stated above, GeForce RTX 4060Ti graphics cards will be available on the Best Buy Canada website to purchase from the launch day and in select stores soon after that. We expect demand for NVIDIA graphics cards to remain high.
