It looks like Nvidia's RTX 40 series will land over the next few months
We all know that AMD and Nvidia are both working towards next-generation GPU launches. Nvidia has their planned "Ada Lovelace" RTX 40 series on the horizon and AMD had their RDNA 3 based Radeon RX 7000 series. Both GPU lineups are set to impress, and both are due to launch before the end of this year.
Videocardz has now reported that Nvidia now plans to release their RTX 4090 graphics card in August, with their RTX 4080 arriving later in September while their RTX 4070 will launch in October. Three new GPUs are now set to launch over three months, though it is worth noting that these launch dates are subject to change.
GPU shortage to GPU oversupply
With demand from cryptocurrency miners waning and consumers being tired of overly high GPU pricing, stock of graphics cards have started to rapidly increase on retail shelves. Now that consumers know that next-generation products are on the horizon, demand for Nvidia's current-generation products are at a low point, which means that Nvidia may be launching their RTX 40 series into a market that is over supplied.
It is possible that Nvidia may slightly delay their RTX 40 series to help shift excess GPU inventories, as the launch of RTX 40 series products will likely see the value of today's RTX 30 series product plummet. Consumers don't want to pay high prices for last-generation technology, and Nvidia doesn't want to sell their RTX 30 series products at lower prices. That said, RTX 30 series price decreases are inevitable in today's market. Something needs to be done to sell Nvidia's excess stock of Ampere products.
Nvidia's likely to reveal all of their top-tier RTX 40 series graphics cards on the same day, showcasing a broad lineup of next-generation Lovelace series products and a product launch roadmap that will reveal when each of their RTX 40 series products will launch.
Right now, it is likely that Nvidia will reveal their RTX 40 series of products during or prior to Gamescom 2022, with this event being quickly followed by the release of Nvidia's RTX 4090 graphics card. One month later, Nvidia will likely release their RTX 4080, and so on.
If Videocardz's predictions are correct, PC enthusiasts will need to wait a few months to hear more about Nvidia's RTX 40 series of graphics cards. Let's hope that these GPUs launch at reasonable prices, and that Nvidia are able to build enough of them to satisfy demand.
