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.

  1. I'm kind of hoping for 1200, 800, 500 but I'm thinking you're closer to right @Endgame .
    Nvidia has seen how much people will pay. I'd be quite surprised if the 4090 is under 2000, as they will try to stretch that price point as far as it will go. I wouldn't even be terribly surprised if they didn't announce the price of the 4080 until they had seen the sales figures of the 4090.

    I'm ok if the 4090 costs $2,000, so long as it's appreciably faster than what you can get for around $2000 today. Don't get me wrong, I'll still roll my eyes when it does get announced - but if someone is willing to pay that budget: both in terms of dollars and in terms of power envelope, to get the absolute top performance they can buy... then more power to them. nVidia is just moving to what the market wants. I do not want a 400W+ card, no matter what the price is, honestly.

    I'm much more concerned about what will release in the $200-500 segments - those are the ones that most people consider, and move the industry forward, and what has been largely decimated and destroyed by the recent GPU supply issues.

    If nVidia's answer to that is to keep pushing ridiculous priced options for underpowered generations-old cards, I'm afraid for the PC gaming niche.
