Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 reportedly launching in October but it may not be the only RTX 40 GPU to come out in 2022
Prolific leaker Tom from the Moore’s Law is Dead YouTube channel has posted a new video revealing interesting details about the launch of Nvidia RTX 40 cards. The information mentioned in the video lines up with previous rumors that have the Nvidia Lovelace cards debuting in fall.
Per one of Tom’s sources, “Nvidia has begun sending out embargo details to their partners this week that specifically denotes a plan to launch in October, but final dates are not decided yet.” Another source mentioned hearing “embargo info is coming soon” to the leaker. The same source also reported that the RTX 4090 may not be the only Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series GPU launching this year, contradicting a previous leak from Greymon55 that depicted the RTX 4090 as the only Lovelace GPU launching in 2022.
Additionally, Tom also mentions some details regarding the alleged oversupply of the RTX 30 boards and its effect on the release of the next-gen cards. Per one of his sources, Nvidia did some “BIG things” to resolve oversupply problems that have been plaguing AIBs to get them to buy up next-gen boards. A different source revealed that both AMD and Nvidia are trying to get AIBs to purchase RDNA 3 and Lovelace inventory early.
Finally, Tom also alleges some performance estimates for the Lovelace GPUs. He suspects that Nvidia will drive the AD102 (RTX 4090), AD103 (RTX 4080), and AD104 (RTX 4070) dies hard to get some incredible performance numbers. The leaker thinks that Nvidia can get the RTX 4090 to perform 2x and the RTX 4080 to be 20-40% better than the RTX 3090. The RTX 4070 can also match the RTX 3090 Ti.
