According to reliable NVIDIA leaker ‘kopite7kimi’, the company might release its new series already in early third quarter, which means either July or August. This is contrary to previous expectations that RTX 40 series could be released in September at the earliest.
One should note that this launch would be closer to RTX 20 series in terms of the release date. The RTX 2080 and Turing series were announced in late August at Gamescom back in 2018. Furthermore, with the RTX 30 generation, NVIDIA did not launch its mid-cycle SUPER series, but opted for several “Ti’ models instead.
If this is true, they are very close.
Even with the the crypto crash and prices for GPUs falling, it's probably just best to wait a couple of months.
