NVIDIA to launch GeForce RTX 40 in October

The manufacturer is now rumored to launch two product series in one year.

NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER “Ampere Refresh”

According to Greymon55 and RedGamingTech, NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER refresh is coming in early 2022. An announcement at CES 2022 is mentioned in the RGT video, but it isn’t quite clear if NVIDIA planning to launch mobile and desktop SUPER series at the same time. What is clear though is that there is a lot planned for CES 2022, including Intel’s Alder Lake mobile and possible Arc Alchemist announcement.

AMD is not in stagnation either. The company is expected to unveil its Ryzen 3D V-Cache-based series and mobile Rembrandt silicon. Clearly, there will be a lot happening in regard to the CPU and GPU market, with each company planning its own products, some of which have overlapping release dates, because they will be featured in the same products (laptops).

NVIDIA RTX 30 SUPER refresh is now rumored to include GA103 GPU, a completely new Ampere processor that would give NVIDIA more options with configurations, especially for the mobile market. It may find its way to desktop series as well, but this has not been mentioned in any leak so far. The rumored RTX 3090 SUPER is more than likely to use GA102 GPU still, just with more cores and higher performance through optimizations.

NVIDIA RTX 40 “Lovelace”

More information on RTX 40 series, a successor to Ampere codenamed Lovelace is also being shared. Unlike AMD’s RDNA3, this architecture is not to use Multi-Chip-Module (MCM) design, but rather a monolithic approach. According to Greymon55, next-gen GPUs should now be expected in October 2022, but this claim does not refer only to NVIDIA Lovelace.

The RTX 30 SUPER refresh would arrive more than a year after the original series. This is already later than RTX 20 SUPER, which launched 11 months after the first Turing series. Since Ampere Refresh is expected 9 months before Lovelace’s announcement, NVIDIA is not expected to launch too many SUPER SKUs.

In the first half of 2022, one should expect at least three new GPU series: RDNA2 refresh, RTX 30 SUPER, and all-new Arc Alchemist from Intel. By the end of the year, AMD and NVIDIA should announce their own completely new architectures and likely introduce the first new graphics cards.
