The first shipments of NVIDIA’s RTX 40 series GPUs are reportedly going to reach Chinese board partners as early as next month. This info comes from Ilya Korneychuk, the founder of the Russian channel PRO Hi-Tech. According to Korneychuk, his graphics card supplier in China expects to receive the first batch of RTX 40 graphics cards in August (in less than a month).
This falls in line with what most noted sources have hinted at, making a late August or September launch highly likely. Both NVIDIA and AMD have started clearing out inventory of existing products to make way for their next-gen offerings. GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs are presently being sold for at least $200-300 under their sticker prices while the Ryzen 5000 CPUs have dropped well below the market prices of rival Intel 12th Gen SKUs.
From what we’ve heard, the RTX 4090 will be the only Lovelace part to hit retail this year. The RTX 4080 and 4070 are likely to land in early 2023, possibly during CES. The much anticipated 800W behemoth featuring the full-fledged AD102 die is going to launch by the end of 2023, if at all.
