Rumour has it that NVIDIA is less than a month away from announcing the RTX 3000 series. The next-generation GPUs, which are based on the company's Ampere architecture, are now supposedly slated for release on September 9. The announcement would seemingly be ahead of AMD unveiling its "Big Navi" cards.

A new launch date for the RTX 3000 series has been offered, this time by GamersNexus. It has been a few weeks since ITHome alleged that NVIDIA planned to unveil its next-generation GPUs on September 17, which would be in line with a late Q3 2020 release that has been speculated about for a while now. Contradictorily, Overclocker.com claimed that this September release date would only apply to AIB cards and that NVIDIA would launch its Founders Edition models in August.

Now, GamersNexus reports that NVIDIA is planning an RTX 3000 series announcement for September 9. If that date is correct, then we should expect NVIDIA to begin publishing teasers within the next three weeks.

It is believed that NVIDIA will use the September 9 event to unveil the RTX 3070, RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti, although only the latter two will be launched that same month. Apparently, the RTX 3070 will arrive in October, with the RTX 3060 scheduled for release in November.

Pricing for the Ampere architecture cards is yet to leak, which should come as no surprise. According to GamersNexus, NVIDIA may not finalise the prices of the RTX 3000 series until minutes before their announcement.
