Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Series could come as early as July

The next generation of graphics cards are on their way, and Nvidia could be primed to introduce its GeForce RTX 4000 series lineup much sooner than anticipated. According to a report from known hardware leaker kopite7kimi, the new family of GPU could launch as early as July. These new graphics cards introduce the Ada architecture, which features a number of improvements over the prior RTX 3000 series lineup.

The high-end models like GeForce RTX 4090 is expected to feature the AD102 GPU, while the GeForce RTX 4080 could have an AD103 instead. The new line is also expected to be the first to utilize the new PCIe 5.0 16-pin power connector. That would lead to not only higher performance, but a higher TDP as well, with up to 600W for the high-end cards. These new cards, the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, and RTX 4070, will feature 24 GB, 16 GB and 12 GB of G6X video memory, respectively.

 

An earlier release makes sense

Seeing a mid-July release could surprise many, but it makes sense for team green when you think about it. The company is not only dealing with an upcoming AMD release that some believe may challenge what Nvidia has, but Intel is arriving in the graphics card race this year as well. By releasing before either of the two competitors, Nvidia has a chance to make its mark on the market and get its product into the hands of consumers sooner.

This can also help those not looking for the newest cards but just a newer one. With the RTX 4000 series on its way, it could pave the way for easier access to the Ampere-based RTX 3000 lineup, such as the RTX 3080 Ti, RTX 3090, and more.

Should these rumors be accurate, an announcement could come as early as the end of May. Nvidia’s next big event is a keynote presentation at Computex 2022 on May 23. As always, take anything unconfirmed by Nvidia with caution no matter the legitimacy of the source.
