There’s been a lot of news about the GeForce RTX 40 series in recent times, and it’s been a bit confusing as the release time approaches. The first three graphics cards based on the Ada Lovelace architecture should be GeForce RTX 4090/RTX 4080/RTX 4070. However, the leaked photos of the metal frame of the silver radiator engraved with the words “RTX 4090 Ti” seem to confirm that there are more top models.
According to VideoCardz
, the three GeForce RTX 4090/RTX 4080/RTX 4070 graphics cards use different GPUs, namely AD102, AD103, and AD104. Among them, RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 may have more in common, such as using the same PCB design, both are PG139, but it is not sure whether the pins between AD102 and AD103 are the same. Since each graphics card is equipped with different GPUs, and Nvidia has not updated the information to its partners, it is difficult to determine the specific specifications for the time being.
It is said that the GeForce RTX 4090 will debut in August, while the GeForce RTX 4080 will be in September, and the GeForce RTX 4070 should be in October, but this is only a tentative time, and there are still possibilities for change. The reason for the rumors is related to previous reports that Nvidia’s partners still have a large inventory of GeForce RTX 30 series, and they don’t expect Nvidia to release a new generation of products so soon.
Even if the GeForce RTX 4090/RTX 4080/RTX 4070 are unveiled together, the actual market times may still be staggered, with a few weeks between each other. While there were rumors that Nvidia wanted to push the launch to mid-July, it now seems unlikely.
