It seems that even more leaks are bursting over at Nvidia HQ. According to multiple leakers, it appears that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 Series is tentatively set for a release window of October. According to information compiled by 3DCenter.org, WCCF Tech, and notorious Nvidia leaker @kopite7kimi on Twitter, there is a growing consensus among leakers regarding the release rollout.
A previous report regarding Nvidia’s GeFore RTX 4000 Series release suggested a possible July launch this summer. An October window is now more likely, and multiple sources have finally agreed on what they believe is the release window. Twitter user @kopite7kimi walked back his initial stance of a July release: “Thank you, I agree with WCCF now. Disappointing.” they stated. This statement comes in response to information originally given by WCCF Tech.
Keep in mind that all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt. The rumors surrounding the release of the new series of graphics cards from Nvidia come from unconfirmed anonymous sources and are still inconsistent. There’s also the possibility that Nvidia could intentionally be spreading misinformation. However, these leakers have been correct about products and announcements in the past.
Specs, release dates, as well as architectural information regarding these graphics cards are also constantly in flux, as we noted about recent RTX 4080 rumors. Until an official announcement is made by Nvidia, we cannot say for sure if any of this is fact. Be careful with the information presented, weigh what makes sense, and come to your own logical conclusions regarding what you think may be true, outdated, or inaccurate.
What this means for Nvidia’s release cycle
Now that we can imagine an October release window for Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4000 Series graphics cards, it suggests a product rollout similar to the RTX 3000 Series may be the case. The current plan suggests the RTX 4090 will hit markets first. We can then expect a monthly rollout for other models in the new series. November would mark the release of the RTX 4080, and December for the 4070. The RTX 4060 could appear at CES 2023, similar to what Nvidia did for the RTX 3060.
It has been almost 24 months since the previous graphics card launched by Nvidia. This release cycle is heating up with rumors and leaks because consumers are excited about a new wave of graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD. Nearly all rumors and leaks are hyping this generation up to be one of the most competitive in recent memory.
Fortunately, we are now on the back end of the chip shortage, and the market for graphics cards is healthy once again thanks to improved supply and less demand overall. The hope is that the next generation of graphics cards will be easier to get than what happened in 2020 and 2021.
