Following this weekend’s rumors regarding NVIDIA’s planned rollout for its upcoming GeForce RTX 40 Series, VideoCardz has now shared new information from sources that claim to have a clearer idea of when the first models will launch. According to those sources, NVIDIA is planning to launch its first flagship gaming graphics card based on the new Ada architecture in August, while the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 will follow later in the year in September and October, respectively. It’s also been reported that while the GeForce RTX 4090 (AD102) and GeForce RTX 4080 (AD103) leverage different GPUs, both graphics cards will be using the same PG139 board, opening up the possibility that both GPUs might be pin-compatible. Despite the staggered rollout, NVIDIA is still expected to announce all three GeForce RTX 40 Series on the same day (in July, if previous rumors are to be believed).

As far as we are aware, NVIDIA has not yet confirmed the GPU specs of RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 SKUs for two reasons. Each model is based on a different GPU, and they launch accordingly after each other. NVIDIA is yet to provide the updated specs to AIBs, which is why it is probably not worth speculating.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is now expected to debut in August. The current launch schedule lists RTX 4080 with a September launch date and RTX 4070 should launch in October. However, our sources expect some dates to change because AIBs still have lots of RTX 30 inventory left, and the last thing they want is to NVIDIA announce a new generation.
