Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

According to the rumors, NVIDIA might be reshaping its roadmap.

NVIDIA Hopper delayed, Ada Lovelace coming sooner?

It is rumored that NVIDIA might be delaying its multi-chip design known as Hopper to introduce a new monolithic series called Lovelace. There is some confusion around the name, because internally NVIDIA uses ‘ADxxx’ for the GPU codenames, while externally it is rumored to be called Lovelace, named after Ada Lovelace, a British mathematician.

According to @kopite7kimi, NVIDIA might be pushing its Hopper back and it is likely to introduce new Lovelace architecture on 5nm first. At this moment it is unclear who would manufacture the new GPU architecture. Both Samsung and TSMC are already capable of manufacturing 5nm chips.

NVIDIA Hopper is rumored to launch with MCM (multi-chip design), however, it is also unknown whether the architecture is coming to the gaming market, as Hopper based GPUs might be exclusive to the HPC market.

Ada Lovelace had already appeared on the NVIDIA t-shirt known as ‘Company of Heroes’. It is actually a good indicator of who could be the future Hero and end up as a new architecture name for upcoming graphics cards:
