NVIDIA has relied on Samsung to build its GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs, but those ties are being cut for green team’s next exciting generation of graphics cards.
This is according to prominent leaker kopite7kimi, who has confidently stated that NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series will leverage an advanced process from the world’s most successful semiconductor foundry, TSMC. The GeForce RTX 40 Series is expected to be built on TSMC’s 5-nanometer process.
What’s also interesting is that NVIDIA will reportedly release its first GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards sooner than expected. Kopite7kimi claims that Ampere’s successors will “come out a little bit earlier,” which suggests that the GeForce RTX 40 Series might surface before September 2022. (NVIDIA began shipping its first GeForce RTX 20 Series and GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards on September 20, 2018 and September 17, 2020, respectively.)
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards are believed to leverage the new Lovelace architecture and maintain a traditional monolithic design. This is in contrast to AMD, whose Radeon RX 7000 Series will purportedly include radical models with a multi-chip module design.

Ada Lovelace will come out a little bit earlier. Keep patient.— kopite7kimi (@kopite7kimi) August 26, 2021
