Nvidia postpones new graphics cards for a month

Gamers will need to be a little more patient before seeing the next-generation RTX 4000 “Ada Lovelace” graphics cards arrive, as Nvidia has reportedly delayed their launch for a month.
According to sources from our colleagues at VideoCardz, Nvidia has delayed the new cards to varying degrees. The launch of the first GeForce RTX 40 graphics card may have been delayed by a month.

The RTX 4090 was originally supposed to arrive in August, as reported by VideoCardz, but now it might not arrive until next month As a reminder, we had also learned that the RTX 4080 was originally planned for September, the RTX 4070 in October and then the RTX 4060 in January 2023. We do not know at this time whether the release of the other graphics cards has also been postponed. , but sources seem to think the whole series was influenced VideoCardz also announces that the release of a new card has also been delayed due to supply chain issues: the GeForce GTX 1630.

Why RTX 4000 series postponed?

As is often the case, Nvidia has presumably delayed the launch of Ada Lovecale because of logistical problems, shortages of chips or even blockages in factories in China However, the American giant could also have wished to get the most out of the current RTX 3000 Ampere series† Indeed, it has been quite a few years since gamers have had a hard time getting their hands on the latest generation Nvidia graphics card.

Without the component shortage, Nvidia would have sold a lot more cards than it does now so it wouldn’t be surprising if the giant now wants out of stock before new cards hit the market† As a reminder, the prices of Nvidia’s RTX 3000 graphics cards have continued to fall in recent months and are now close to reasonable levels. GPUs are running out of stock, which should allow Nvidia to significantly increase its sales over the summer.
