Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 series could be launched earlier than initially anticipated
Renowned leaker @kopite7kimi has some good news for all the GPU-starved gamers out there. It seems that AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7000 series of processors won't be the only piece of hardware that slated for an early launch. Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4000 series of graphics cards will be unveiled in "Q3 early", according to Kopite. That is slightly earlier than previous rumours which pointed towards a September release.
It means that the Ada Lovelace GPU toting graphics cards could be announced sometime in July or August of this year. However, it is unclear as to when they'll hit shelves, but if previous release cycles are anything to go by, the delay could be a few weeks at most. PSU manufacturers will have to ramp up production, too, as a lot of gamers will have to buy beefier power supplies to feed the power-hungry GeForce RTX 4000 series GPUs, which are rumoured to draw as much as 900 Watts of power under load
Unlike RDNA 3, Ada Lovelace will likely follow a more structured release cycle, with the GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 and 4070 being launched simultaneously. They are rumoured to pack 24 GB, 16 GB and 12 GB of video memory, respectively. The GeForce RTX 4090 could also pack over 100 TFLOPS of raw compute power, making it one of the most powerful gaming graphics cards released to date. With the recent cryptocurrency market crash and stabilization of the supply chain, one has an actual shot at buying one at MSRP, too.
