Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.
We have some (conflicting) information on a possible launch schedule for the upcoming GeForce series.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Launch Date?
According to Overclocking.com, NVIDIA would launch GeForce RTX 30 series in August. It would be a limited quantity launch with a focus on the Founders Edition model first. Custom graphics cards based on Ampere architecture would arrive in September. The site claims that they double-sourced this information. We have reached out to the author of the story for more information and based on what we were told, it does seem credible.
ITHome, Igor’s Lab, MLID: September
Based on previous reports, NVIDIA was rumored to unveil its GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards in September. The Chinese website ITHome even provided a possible launch date of September 17th. We were unable to confirm this information, but we too heard September as possible announcement month for the series. The YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead is also claiming that the GeForce RTX 30 series would launch in September.
It is also worth reminding that Igor’s Lab also pointed at a possible mass production start in August, with media events and reviews expected in September. This was based on a long-established production scheduled for GeForce graphics cards.
What we know
We were told to expect an announcement in September. It is quite clear that the launch schedule has already been determined but different sources claiming different dates only help to pin down the date rather than confirm it. It does seem obvious, however, that GeForce RTX 30 series should launch in the next two months.
The stock of GeForce RTX 2080(Ti)/2070 is depleting. We have already heard that NVIDIA is discontinuing the series, so it is only a matter of time before we see ‘out of stock’ information at more retailers. EVGA has already stopped promoting the 2080 Ti on their website.
