NVIDIA RTX 40 series already in early Q3?

The most recent rumors target July/August this year for the upcoming GeForce RTX 40 series launch.

According to reliable NVIDIA leaker ‘kopite7kimi’, the company might release its new series already in early third quarter, which means either July or August. This is contrary to previous expectations that RTX 40 series could be released in September at the earliest.

One should note that this launch would be closer to RTX 20 series in terms of the release date. The RTX 2080 and Turing series were announced in late August at Gamescom back in 2018. Furthermore, with the RTX 30 generation, NVIDIA did not launch its mid-cycle SUPER series, but opted for several “Ti’ models instead.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 is based on Ada architecture, which has been leaked in great detail already. The flagship models such as RTX 4090 would feature AD102 GPU, whereas RTX 4080 might be based on AD103 instead. The new series would make use of the new PCIe Gen5 16-pin power connector and higher TDP for each series, up to 600W for the RTX 4090 model.

In the recent weeks, Kopite has been sharing the most recent rumors on the series, such as the AD102 GPU internal configuration. The new architecture would feature much larger L2 cache and higher count of FP32+IN32 cores.

Among the most discussed SKUs are RTX 4090, 4080 and 4070. NVIDIA usually releases its high-end GPUs series first, which means that all those cards might be announced at the same time, but actual launch might be staggered for each model.
