Note: this post is tagged a rumor

NVIDIA RTX 40 series already in early Q3?

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

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

It should be noted that this launch would be closer to the RTX 20 series in terms of release date. The RTX 2080 and Turing series were announced at Gamescom in late August 2018. Moreover, with the RTX 30 generation, NVIDIA did not launch the mid-cycle SUPER series, but instead opted for different “Ti” models.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 is based on Ada architecture, which has already been leaked in detail. The flagship models like RTX 4090 would have AD102 GPU while RTX 4080 could be based on AD103 instead. The new series would use the new PCIe Gen5 16-pin power connector and a higher TDP for each series, up to 600W for the RTX 4090 model.

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

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