NVIDIA RTX 4090 coming first

For next-gen GeForce series NVIDIA is said to be launching its flagship model first.

According to recent rumors, the RTX 40 series are set to debut in mid-July. This date likely refers to the announcement while each new SKU will get its own launch date sometime later. For new architectures NVIDIA usually announces its graphics cards two weeks in advance, which means that the actual launch may take place in August.

Kopite7kimi claims that the launch schedule for RTX 40 series is already confirmed, and it is not the same approach as RTX 30 “Ampere’s”. Rather than focus on the RTX 4080 series, NVIDIA would release its flagship RTX 4090 card first.

Here’s a reminder that RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 were all announced on the same day, but their launch schedule was different. The RTX 3080 was the first card to launch just two weeks after announcement, followed by the RTX 3090 another two weeks later. NVIDIA needed two months to launch its RTX 3070 graphics card after making this card official.

All rumored RTX 40 graphics cards based on Ada architecture use different GPUs. NVIDIA reportedly focused their efforts on AD102 GPU with AD104 entering the testing stage very soon. This GPU will be used by RTX 4070 GPU, according to the same leaker. However, we have not yet heard anything about AD103 entering the testing phase, in fact, Kopite has been very reluctant to confirm any new information to this GPU specifically. Therefore, one might assume that NVIDIA will choose AD102 GPU for this model instead.
