Postponement of the RTX 4000 increasingly concrete

New information from Videocardz reveals further changes to the launch dates of Nvidia's RTX 4000 GPU range. The company is facing supply chain problems that have also delayed the debut of the GeForce GTX 1630, a video card designed for low-power systems.

As we've told you in the past, Nvidia will stagger the launch of the new models, first anticipating the most powerful GPU, namely RTX 4090, continuing with the RTX 4080, 4070 and 4060, the latter waiting for CES 2023. Following the pre-established order, these first three models should be presented in September, October and November respectively. Videocardz nevertheless wishes to clarify that what emerged does not exclude the launch dates previously leaked, the impression is therefore that these dates concern only a paper launch, with the actual availability that will occur later.

Attention is in any case concentrated on the new generation of cards. The RTX 4000 are waiting for the promises about the huge increase in performance, at the same time there are significant concerns about the soaring consumption expected on the new models. The high TDP on the RTX 4090 Ti also prompted Nvidia to review the heatsink originally designed for the GPU: specifically, the company would have decided to adopt a three-fan cooling system, in order to adequately dissipate the heat generated by the card. Using the AD102 graphics chip and 24GB of VRAM, the RTX 4090 Ti should have a 600W TDP.

A slight Nvidia RTX 4000 GPU delay could be on the cards

Nvidia RTX 4000 GPUs are expected to arrive later this year, but a slight delay could be on the cards. Whispers from the rumour mill claim the green team’s next best graphics cards will arrive a month later than expected, and even the budget GTX 1630 is running a little late.

According to Videocardz, multiple sources have confirmed an Nvidia RTX 4000 delay, pushing the GPU’s potential ETA. Rumours point towards the flagship RTX 4090 showing up in September, while the RTX 4080 and RTX 4070 should show up in October and November respectively. The report doesn’t mention the RTX 4060, but the setback means it might pop up even further into 2023.

The GeForce GTX 1630 has also missed its May 31 launch, with leaked documents suggesting its arrival date is now ‘TBD’. Videocardz says board partners are awaiting validation on their manufactured cards, so it should be too long before the budget contender makes its way to gaming PCs.

As with all RTX 4000 rumours and leaks, it’s best to take arrival murmurings with a grain of salt. Even if the graphics card lineup shows up later than expected, it won’t necessarily impact official unveiling plans, so we could hear more about the next-gen GeForce cards soon.
