Rumors have it that NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series will be debuting this year in mid of July. From what we can deduce, this tentative timeline is for just the announcement of the series and the SKUs will launch separately on their own dates. If we look at the trend which NVIDIA follows to announce the cards, it’s usually two weeks prior to the actual launch. Hence, considering that the announcement will be made in July, we should be expecting the cards to launch in August.
According to Kopite7kimi, the launch schedule is already confirmed for the RTX 40 series, and this time the company is not following the same path as it did with the RTX 30 Ampere. This time instead of focusing on the RTX 4080 series, NVIDIA is planning to release the flagship card first – the RTX 4090.
With the RTX 30 series, NVIDIA had announced the RTX 3090, 3080, and 3070 all on the same day. Their launch schedule, however, was different. Two weeks following this announcement, the RTX 3080 was launched and two weeks after that the RTX 3090 was launched. The 3070 was launched two months after the official announcement.
One thing we know for sure right now is that all the RTX 40 graphics cards which have been circulating in rumors recently are going to base off the Ada architecture and will have different GPUs. NVIDIA is currently focusing on the AD102 GPU whereas the AD104 is already entering its testing phase in a couple of days.
The AD104 is going to be featured on the RTX 4070 GPU as stated by Kopite7kimi. Let’s all recall that these are all rumors so far and no official data has been released for specs per say. As far as the AD103 is concerned, there is no other information on its testing phase.
Choose B. Confirmed.
