Brand new rumors are currently circulating about Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series GPU launch. It looks like this next generation of graphics cards is gearing up for release in September.
In this new series, we will see the much-anticipated GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. But, there’s also a surprise GPU - the RTX 3090.
3080 Mass Production To Begin In August
These rumors come from Igor’s Lab which shows us a timetable of release and validation tests. This rumor suggests that Nvidia will kick start mass production of next-gen GPUs in August, with a big media event to announce the details in September.
However, there’s always the chance that we will hear more about the Nvidia cards before September, for example at Gamescom 2020.
The September launch time isn’t a huge surprise to those who have been following the rumors so far. However, the mention of the RTX 3090 is a nice surprise on top.
Is The Mystery 3090 Card Real?
So far, little is known about the RTX 3090. Interestingly, Nvidia hasn’t released an x90 chip since 2012 when we had the GTX 690. Back then, x90 referred to a dual-chip card which is also something else that Nvidia hasn’t made for a good few years.
For these reasons, the rumors of a 3090 card have been routinely dismissed or assumed to refer to the RTX 3080 Ti.
However, this new rumor has got us all questioning whether it’s a real card after all. If it is a real one, we’re wondering where it fits in with the 3080 Ti or whether it is designed to simply replace it.
We’re not really sure what Nvidia has planned with this mystery card, or why it will be using the x90 naming method. We will certainly be keeping an eye out for any Nvidia news in the coming months. If the rumored release window is true, we shouldn’t have too long to get some firm answers and rumor confirmations.
