Geforce RTX 4000: When will Nvidia’s new graphics card be released?
According to current rumors, Nvidia's new graphics card generation is already in the starting blocks. But how realistic is that?
The year 2022 hasn’t brought much new when it comes to graphics cards. We’ve seen the Geforces RTX 3080 12GB from Nvidia and the new unofficial flagship RTX 3090 Ti, while AMD had a smaller upgrade from the current generation Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT just last week. You can read here why there is no testing on GameStar.de and what this has to do with the author of this text.
We’re really looking forward to new graphics card generations from both AMD and Nvidia later this year. Until now, most experts – backed by leaks and rumors – had assumed that the Radeon RX 7000 and Geforce RTX 4000 would launch towards the end of the year. Just like with the RX 6000 and RTX 3000. Both model series went on sale in October and November 2020, respectively.
However, updated information from the kopitemi7 hardware leak, which is known for its consistently accurate information, now points to a much earlier release. At least for Nvidia’s Geforce RTX 4000:
Ada Lovelace will come out a little bit earlier. Keep patient.

According to the tweet, Ada Lovelace, the core architecture of the RTX 4000 series, will be released in early third quarter of 2022. That probably means a launch in July or early August.
How realistic is a launch in July?
Although Kopitekimi7’s predictions are always correct, July or August is not very convincing as a release date. Because Nvidia has not yet drummed for new graphics cards. The RTX 4000 has yet to be ridiculed.
If the new graphics cards are going to be released this soon, it shouldn’t take long for the first announcements to arrive. For example, both AMD and Nvidia will hold their own keynotes at the Computex 2022 computer show next Monday. One possible timeframe for a big announcement from Nvidia is gamescom 2022, which will take place in Cologne from August 24-28.
What can we expect from the RTX 4000?
Previous leaks and rumors suggest a huge jump in performance for the RTX 4000. Because with the Ada Lovelace architecture, the number of computing cores has apparently increased drastically. The full expansion for a potential RTX 4090, the AD102 should bring the AD102 to 18,432 CUDA compute units with significantly increased clock speeds compared to the current generation’s GA102 (RTX 3090 Ti, 10,752 cores, about 2 gigahertz).

Discussions about the price of new graphics cards from AMD and Nvidia have already started. Will they be as expensive as the RTX 3000? Recent indicators point to prices close to the MSRP.
Is it realistic for Nvidia’s new Geforce graphics cards to launch in July or August? Or do you think they will appear towards the end of the year, as in the new generation graphics cards? Write us in the comments!
