The CEO of NVIDIA announced that the GeForce RTX 40 series, their next-generation GPUs, will be available very soon during its results call for Q2 FY2023.
The second quarter of this year for NVIDIA was terrible, with overall gaming revenue falling by 44% compared to the previous quarter and 33% yearly (year-over-year vs. Q3 2021).
What’s more significant is that CEO Jensen Huang also hinted that we might learn more about the company’s upcoming gaming GPU architecture at GTC 2022 at the end of the month. The CEO keynote is scheduled to occur on September 20, while the next NVIDIA GTC will begin on September 19 and run through September 22.
In Gaming, our partners and ecosystem are responding to a sudden slowdown in consumer demand and correcting channel inventory. Still, the fundamentals of gaming are strong. We’ll get through this over the next few months and go into next year with our new architecture. I look forward to telling you more about it at GTC next month.
I look forward to next month’s GTC conference, where we will share new advances of RTX reinventing 3D graphics and gaming”
– NVIDIA Earnings Call Q2 FY2023
Therefore, it appears that we will essentially receive an official to reveal next month in September. This will most certainly not be a launch event for the new GeForce RTX 40-series lineup, but rather a reveal.
The official, fully-fledged launch will be conducted later on, with current rumors suggesting an October release for the RTX 4070. The RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 will then follow up in the coming two months, bar any delays. NVIDIA (and AMD) are currently trying to clear inventory in order to make room for their next-gen GPUs, which means some pretty sweet deals for the average consumer.
