NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 SUPER and GeForce RTX 40 series rumoured to both launch in 2022; AMD RDNA 3 cards arriving during Lovelace release window
The next few months could be quiet ones as far as graphics card releases go. While AMD is expected to reveal the Radeon RX 6600 at some stage, neither it nor NVIDIA is thought to have any mid-generation or next-generation refreshes on the cards. Many Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 series cards remain well above their MSRPs though, so releasing new generations would not make much sense right now, in our opinion.
However, @greymon55 and RedGamingTech allege that NVIDIA plans to release an RTX 30 SUPER refresh in early 2022 for laptops and desktops. Reputedly, NVIDIA is targeting CES 2022 in January for at least laptop variants, although it is unclear if desktop models will debut simultaneously.
RedGamingTech reports that the RTX 30 SUPER series will not offer major performance improvements over existing RTX 30 cards. Mind you, that was also the case from the RTX 20 to the RTX 20 SUPER series. Allegedly, the GA103 GPU will finally make it to market under the RTX 30 SUPER series, with high-end models relying on an expanded GA102, such as the RTX 3090 SUPER.
NVIDIA's Ampere refresh will be NVIDIA's primary offering until October, replaced by the RTX 40 'Lovelace' series. According to @greymon55, AMD is planning to release its Radeon RX 7000 series cards at around that time too, two years after it unveiled its first RX 6000 cards. Unfortunately, the supply of GeForce RTX graphics cards may remain tight until the end of 2022, which may eat into the RTX 40 series.
