Will Nvidia release new graphics cards in 2022

It has been nearly two years since the last generation of graphics cards has released, so you may be wondering, will Nvidia release new cards in 2022? The current Ampere generation of cards was initially launched in September of 2020. And coming out in during the pandemic has proved a struggle for the lineup of GPUs.

There was a compounding of challenges to coming out when it did, which led to the GPU shortage. With the lockdowns, many factories shut down and couldn’t continue production leading to less stock than some may have expected. Leading on from that you get a big traffic jam in exports and getting it out to the people.

This led to many people taking advantage of the situation with scalpers nabbing the stock to sell for profit. Whilst the crypto boom caused many others to buy the cards to earn money, which didn’t end up in gamers’ hands. Overall leading to a dire situation of expensive GPUs that we are just recovering from in mid-2022. With card prices returning to normal but not equally, you may expect some new options to pick from soon.
