Nvidia may launch GeForce RTX 4090 first, RTX 4070/4080 will release later

In the next few months, NVIDIA will release the GeForce RTX 40 series based on the Ada Lovelace architecture. The first batch of three products will be GeForce RTX 4090/RTX 4080/RTX 4070. Rumor has it that the GeForce RTX 40 series will debut as early as mid-July this year, but it will take a while before it goes on sale. However, it is also reported that in order to help partners digest the inventory of the GeForce RTX 30 series as much as possible, Nvidia is considering delaying the launch of the new generation of graphics cards.

Recently, Twitter user @kopite7kimi revealed that Nvidia has confirmed the release schedule of the GeForce RTX 40 series, and plans to launch the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 first, followed by the GeForce RTX 4080/4070. This is different from the GeForce RTX 30 series of the Ampere architecture. At that time, NVIDIA released the GeForce RTX 3090/3080/3070 in one breath, but the actual time to market is different.

The GeForce RTX 4090 is equipped with AD102. It is said that Nvidia has concentrated its energy on this GPU. AD104 is slower, but it will soon enter the testing phase and will be used for the GeForce RTX 4070 in the future. Although there are rumors that Nvidia will have a GPU called AD103, there is less information.
