NVIDIA GeForce RTX 50 to feature GB20X GPUs
As per information shared by the Chiphell leaker known as “panzerlied,” it appears that NVIDIA is not currently planning a ‘successor’ to its AD104 GPU.
The leaker claims that NVIDIA next-gen GPU lineup would simply lack the X04 part, but instead there would be a new GPU designated as X05. This shift is reportedly aligned with NVIDIA’s new market positioning strategy for the next generation of GPU series. However, the leaker does not provide specific details about what implications this name change might hold for consumers.
We quickly contacted the most respected NVIDIA hardware leaker around, kopite7kimi, if such a report is true. We were provided with a list of upcoming NVIDIA GPUs, which undeniably confirms that there is no X04 part. Furthermore, it suggests the next GPU lineup should also be part of the Blackwell GPU family.
NVIDIA Next-Gen GPU Series
GB202, GB203, GB205, GB206, GB207
The original post did not provide any direct confirmation on the GPU names:
In the past Ampere series, NVIDIA introduced the GA103 GPU model, positioned as a compromise between enthusiast-level and upper mid-range solutions, which usually bore the X04 codename. Notably, the initial X03 release came after the primary Ampere lineup launch. However, with the RTX 40 series, codenamed “Ada Lovelace,” the AD103 GPU has taken the place of the X04, becoming the second GPU to debut within this generation.
NVIDIA recently confirmed that their next-generation consumer architecture is slated for a 2025 release. Yet, it’s essential to strategize the complete lineup well before the GPUs enter the tape-out phase. It’s worth recalling that in the past, leaker Kopite7kimi accurately disclosed the entire Ampere GPU series months ahead of other sources. This lends credibility to the information. Additionally, this same leaker has now indicated that NVIDIA might reintroduce 512-bit GPUs for the upcoming consumer GPU series. However, the specific GPU model that will incorporate such a wide memory bus is still awaiting confirmation.
