Key notes

  • Fancy purchasing a brand new Nvidia RTX GPU for your gaming setup?
  • If you got your eyes set on RTX 40 graphics cards you will have to wait.
  • This is just a rumor at the moment and we're waiting for official updates.

We know that many of you have already switched to the new Microsoft-designed operating system for your gaming needs.

In fact, the Redmond tech giant mentioned that Windows 11 will soon become the future of gaming, which means that more users might make the switch in the near future.

And, if you are interested in leaving Windows 10 behind to game on the latest OS, we have some tips for optimizing your experience.

But, we know that a great operating system isn’t enough for a smooth gaming session, as we require some pretty serious hardware for it.

Although many of us are just happy with our old GPU, which still does its job admirably, some are itching to get their hands on the latest technology.

That being said, if you were waiting for the new generation of GPUs from Nvidia, you’re going to have to wait a bit more.

Nvidia RTX 4080, 4070, and 4060 delayed to 2023

Everybody is hyped about the new Nvidia RTX 4090 GPU, but you should know that it might be the only one of its generation to come this year.

The other models, RTX 4080, and below that, will allegedly become available for purchase next year, according to a new Twitter rumor.

Well-known hardware leaker, Greymon55, informed Nvidia hardware fans that their new favorite GPUs might be delayed until 2023.

The conspiracy theory here is that Nvidia will announce AD102 (RTX 4090) in September, ahead of a launch in October, which means it’ll be available to buy then.

The subsequent GPUs, AD103, AD104, and AD106, which is RTX 4080, and RTX 4070 plus 4060, with AD106 rumored to be the RTX 4050, won’t be out earlier than 2023.

To make it a bit easier to understand, the general opinion about this staggered release is that Nvidia still has full warehouses, which presumably refers to the excess stock of RTX 3000 GPUs.

Keep in mind that retailers and card makers alike still have to sell before Nvidia can launch next-gen models without leaving those partners in the lurch.

Remember to take this with a grain of salt, as it is still down to rumors and assumptions when it comes to the new generation of Nvidia RTX graphics cards.

We could very well see all models released this year, although a delay to 2023 makes a lot more sense, considering all the factors involved.
