The rumor mill can’t seem to make up its mind as to when NVIDIA might launch its next generation of GeForce gaming graphics cards. Sources with Wccftech are now claiming that green team’s next flagship graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4090, will not launch until October 2022, while the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 isn’t expected until the tail end of this year in November and December, respectively. It’s also believed that the GeForce RTX 4060 won’t make an appearance until CES 2023. Previous rumors had suggested that the first GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards would emerge in Q3 2022, possibly as early as July.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Graphics Card – October 2022 Launch
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Graphics Card – November 2022 Launch
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Graphics Card – December 2022 Launch
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 Graphics Card – January CES 2023 Unveil

The GeForce RTX 4090 will be the first to launch, followed by its siblings, the RTX 4080 and the RTX 4070. If you recall the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series launch, you will remember that the green team also announced the trio of its Ampere cards, the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070 the same day however, the launches took place a few weeks apart from each other. The first graphics card within the RTX 30 series wasn’t available in retail until a month later (1st September RTX 30 Unveil, 24th September RTX 3080 Retail launch).

  1. I swear, these rumors have the same effin pattern. I remember the same things roughly for the 10/20/30 series.
    Something like:
    Performance is not as expected, maybe only 25% faster.. Then another rumor were performance can be as high as double!. Same with power consumption, or something that alludes to it: rumors of very high power, or multiple connectors or big coolers, things like this, but then countered with rumors of power savings of the magical fab process they will be using. Then theres always rumors of delays or if its rumor of ahead of schedule, or related to these things, such as rumors of good yields, and ahead of schedules for the partners.
    I swear, whomever is sending this " information " has it all in the same email, and just changes the series name. Its comical really.
  2. I think it's people getting leaks or rumors too early. Like people are issuing rumors on development hardware that software engineering is writing drivers for. At that state the cards are little more than proof of concept. Large over built heavily powered and chips and coolers. As the design is finalized and the most current processes used the power envelope shrinks as well as the cooler needed to keep things in check. That's why I think the rumor mill has the cadence it does.

    I think it's a lot of wishful thinking and just pure made up statements. You get a grain of truth in there, and 99% filler - and so long as you have that grain, you can say "SEE HA I WAS RIGHT"

    Me too. At the end of summer and going into fall cards will launch, and performance gains might not be as great as previous rumors hinted at. 25% is about par for the course.

    I'd say the only real questions will be availability and pricing.

    I've noticed over the last 3-4 years that the majority of these statements come from the same 3-4 sources. I always wonder about that and what exactly is their stake with them.

    I'm betting they pay for leaks so get information early... but it's all subject to change.

    Doubt they have to pay too much when rumorbait drives clicks through the roof.

    I have no doubt that a lot (not all, but a lot) of these rumors are intentionally "leaked" though, like you say. I've long suspected all of them, and especially nVidia, from using them to manipulate their stock prices and control the narrative / misdirect around a news cycle.
