Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-Series Launch Delay Rumors Intensify

Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series (Ada Lovelace) graphics card launch date adjustment rumors have been bubbling up this weekend. Tech site VideoCardz (opens in new tab) has been talking to its sources regarding multiple unreleased Nvidia GeForce graphics cards. The story goes that Nvidia is reportedly delaying the new cards by various degrees. In brief, it says the debut of the first GeForce RTX 40-series graphics card may have suffered a one-month delay, and the purported GeForce GTX 1630 graphics card release is being pushed back due to supply chain issues.

PC DIYers and gamers will likely be eager to see the Nvidia RTX 40-series graphics cards launch with their Ada Lovelace architecture and TSMC N4 fabbed GPUs onboard. Performance rumors are exciting but counterbalanced by worries about power consumption and Nvidia trying to maintain crypto-boom era pricing. We mentioned the possibility of the first RTX 40-series GPUs arriving in September. This weekend VideoCardz has ‘confirmed’ September as the date the first Lovelace card will launch, the GeForce RTX 4090, which it characterizes as a schedule slip, after heralding an ‘early’ August launch for this SKU over the last few weeks.
