What Do We Know About Nvidia 4000 Series GPUs?

With promises of double the power and performance of the RTX 3000 series graphics cards, Nvidia’s RTX 4000 series next gen GPUs are all the hype in the world of gaming. Here’s what we know about them so far.

NVIDIA Says GPU Shortages Are Going To Ease Down in 2H 2022, Right Before Next-Gen GeForce RTX 40 Series Hits Market Shelves

As we draw nearer to the expected release date of the next gen Nvidia graphics cards later this year, more and more leaks are finding their way to our news feeds, promising an impressive lineup of GPUs. The most recent leaks suggest a 5nm process node running on the new Ada Lovelace architecture.

What is the release date for RTX 4000 series?

Based off of Nvidia’s history of GPU launches, we can expect the 4000 series to drop in Q3 or Q4 of 2022, since there was a two year gap between the release od the RTX 2000 series and RTX 3000 series cards. A leaker on Twitter claimed that the cards will launch “no earlier than the end of 2022”, which makes sense given Nvidia’s previous tendancy to release their new cards nearer the end of the year. The leaker did however say it is possible that the launch could possibly happen in Q1 2023.

This release date would make sense given that Nvidia has confirmed a 2023 release of their Grace server chip that will be based on the same 5nm process that the RTX 4000 series are said to be based on. While many enthusiasts can’t wait to get their hands on the new cards, a 2023 release might work out in our favour and give Nvidia a chance to get over the current chip shortage that affects manufacturing of components.

How expensive will the RTX 4000 cards be?

It is hard to give an exact price estimation since there is still some time until the release, and anything can happen between now and then to disrupt the gaming component market, but we can use the RTX 3000 series as an indicator of the expected price range. Based off of US pricing, the current RTX 3000 series are priced as such:

  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 – £299 / $329
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti – £369 / $399
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 – £469 / $499
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti – £529 / $599
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 – £649 / $699
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti – £1,099 / $1,199
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 – £1399 / $1499

Usually, a new release of cards will be within a $100-$200 USD price range of the generation before it, so we can hope to see the RTX 4000 series being similarly priced to the current gen of cards.

Expected performance of the RTX 4000 series

The first thing that most enthusiasts are expecting is that the RTX 4000 series will be based on TSMC’s 5nm process, compared to the current 8nm on the RTX 3000 series cards. As for the expected performance, the higher end cards are expected to offer double the performance of the current gen cards. There are also rumours that the new gen will feature speeds of up to between 2.2 and 2.4ghz, which is a decent jump from the current 1.7-1.9 ghz speeds.
