The presentation and launch of the new Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards could be earlier than expected. While insiders have so far assumed a late summer or fall date, July 2022 is now in the pipeline for the GPUs with “Ada Lovelace” architecture. Already last year, the often well-informed leaker “kopite7kimi” assumed an early release date for the RTX 4000 card, which he now limits to the early third quarter of 2022.
Nvidia was therefore able to anticipate its competitor AMD and its next-generation graphics cards. present as early as July – at least on paper. Due to the ongoing chip crisis, it is still unclear whether the US chip maker will only need a few weeks or even months to bring the “Ada Lovelace” GPUs to the market in sufficient quantities.
RTX 4070, 4080 & 4090: High-end cards should start
At the moment it is believed that Nvidia will initially focus on the high-end GeForce RTX 4070, RTX 4080, and RTX 4090 graphics cards, before equipping the gaming mid-range with appropriate upgrades later on. In recent weeks, it was mainly the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 that kept the rumor mill busy.
According to unconfirmed information, the AD102 GPU could be one of the first cards with FP32 performance exceeding 100 TFLOPs. A suitable competitor from the AMD Radeon RX 7900 series (RNDA 3) could also come close to this limit with 92 TFLOPs. Higher clocks, more memory, and more Cuda cores should also ensure higher power consumption of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards.
The RTX 4090 with 24 GB GDDR6X memory has a TDP of 600 watts. For the “Ada Lovelace” GPUs RTX 4080 (16 GB) and RTX 4070 (12 GB), on the other hand, up to 450 watts and 300 watts are predicted, respectively. As usual, the previously leaked tech specs should be viewed with some skepticism, although the hit rate of leakers like “kopite7kimi” is high in these cases.
