NVIDIA RTX 4080 Reportedly Delayed to 2023, RTX 4090 Only 40 Series GPU to Land in 2022 [Rumor]

According to multiple sources, NVIDIA’s next-gen RTX 40 series graphics cards have been delayed to the first quarter of 2023, except the RTX 4090. This sentiment has been reverberated by multiple tipsters, the latest being Bits and Chips. From what we’ve heard, there are no plans for a mainstream Lovelace launch anytime soon.

The RTX 4090 may be the only next-gen GeForce GPU to hit the solid ground this year with the RTX 4080 and 4070 delayed to CES 2023. This is something we’ve been of the RDNA 3 lineup as well. According to initial rumors, the RX 7700 XT was the only SKU to launch this year with the RX 7800 XT and 7900 XT pushed to 2023.

Although we can’t say with certainty if this news is legit, it’s looking more and more likely as NVIDIA has been extending the production of its higher-end Ampere parts. Regardless, it would seem that prices of present gen offerings will keep dropping till inventory dries up or the next-gen SKUs make an appearance.
