Enthusiasts who are expecting NVIDIA to launch its GeForce RTX 40 Series with options aside from the flagship model might be disappointed. That’s according to the latest rumors shared by prolific leaker kopite7kimi, who claimed in a tweet over the weekend that green team plans to launch the GeForce RTX 4090 first to usher in its next generation of graphics cards for gamers. That model will then be followed by two of its weaker siblings, the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070, at a later date. Kopite7kimi’s claim was prompted by a tweet from 3DCenter.org that speculated whether NVIDIA might be launching the GeForce RTX 4080 first, but apparently, gamers and other prospective owners will have to wait a bit longer before that reaches shelves. NVIDIA’s Ada-based GeForce RTX 4090 utilizes the AD102-300 GPU and has been rumored to offer an exciting performance bump over the current flagship, the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. The GeForce RTX 40 Series is expected to be announced as early as July.

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.
