GeForce RTX 4000 graphics cards may come out earlier than thought

The next generation of Nvidia GeForce graphics cards called Ada Lovelace may hit the market earlier than previously thought. When exactly is unclear, but the source says it will happen a little earlier. 

Recent rumors have indicated that such adapters will be released towards the end of next year. Of course, they clearly should not be expected in the coming months, but perhaps they will be released, for example, next summer or even spring. 

The source also says that the GPU for the new cards will be produced by TSMC using the 5 nm process technology. The current Ampere GPUs are manufactured by Samsung using the 8nm process technology. Whether this represents a potential supply problem is anyone's guess. 

According to early rumors, the top-end GPU of the Ada Lovelace generation will receive 18,432 CUDA cores, and the power consumption of the corresponding video card will exceed 400 watts. In addition, there were rumors that even such a GPU might not be enough to compete with the Navi 31, so Nvidia will use a GPU based on the Hopper architecture for the flagship GeForce RTX 4000 series graphics cards.  

The source in this case is the insider kopite7kimi, who has already shared detailed information about the upcoming GPUs and video cards in general many times. In particular, it was he who was the very first to publish the exact characteristics of the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.
