NVIDIA Rumored to Refresh RTX 30-series with SUPER SKUs in January, RTX 40-series in Q4-2022

NVIDIA is rumored to be giving its GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere" graphics card family a mid-term refresh by the 2022 International CES, in January; the company is also targeting Q4-2022, specifically October, to debut its next-generation RTX 40-series. The Q1 refresh will include "SUPER" branded SKUs taking over key price-points for NVIDIA, as it lands up with enough silicon that can be fully unlocked. This leak comes from Greymon55, a reliable source on NVIDIA leaks. It also aligns with the most recent pattern followed by NVIDIA to keep its GeForce product-stack updated. The company had recently released "Ti" updates to certain higher-end price-points, in response to competition from the Radeon RX 6000 "RDNA2" series.

NVIDIA's next-generation will be powered by the "Lovelace" graphics architecture that sees even more hardware acceleration for the RTX feature-set, more raytraced effects, and preparation for future APIs. It also marks NVIDIA's return to TSMC, with the architecture reportedly being designed for the 5 nm (N5) silicon fabrication node. The current-gen GeForce "Ampere" chips are being products on an 8 nm foundry node by Samsung.

Rtx 40xx next year quarter....? RIP. I guess AMD and Nvidia knows what intel will release and they are not in a hurry...

And I was hoping for this year end...

Until price normalizes and we're all back in the game ;)

But honestly... given the requirements of new games and what they show for it... I'm going to be happy toning things down a notch. I keep getting surprised how well a 1080 still runs at 3440x1440. If I get 50% extra raster perf somewhere down the line, I'm sorted for another 5 years. Also, retro & indie gaming. More game, less nonsense...

Either way my limit is 500 EUR and it better be +50% at the very least for that money, or no buy. Its really quite simple :P

So basically the RTX 40-series is gonna be the threshold to a fair used GPUs market.

The thing is, prices are unlikely to normalize ever again.
These prices are here to stay unless something huge happens to crypto (which is highly unlikely).
Or unless Intel desides to severely undercut Amd and NV in order to get some marketshare. Which I doubt, because... Intel.

I wish we could get a 1080Ti Refresh... A 1080Ti SUPER HoF Golden Sample Goes Like Hell Black Edition

This. The only way I see prices taking a nosedive is if crypto tanks and stays dead.

Someone needs to write a virus that only attacks mining rigs. Otherwise any new cards are out of reach for mere "gamers"

If only we could be so lucky. I'd rather crypto as a concept die off. Its current implementation is beyond stupid.

Same here. nVidia still haven't finished releasing the original 3000 series yet (no desktop 3050 / 3050Ti in the same sub $250 / sub 150w bracket that still hold 4 of the top 5 spots on Steam). If they plan to skip a 3050 Super and 4050 too, it simply points towards hoping the pyramid-scheme style manufactured infinite demand from mining + "mid to upper-mid range GPU's are the new flagship phones so $400 is the new 'budget'" thing will continue for another 2-3 years, and by 2024 we'll amusingly still see 2016-2019 era GPU's holding the most commonly owned cards slot because no-one will have made any replacements in 5 years...

the less stock there is the more sku's they make, i'm sure there is some weird logic in those CEO's minds, i can't see what it could be

Yes, with 16GB of RAM. Meanwhile 3080 Super will still have 10GB.

16gb but with even lower bandwith and without DP

I know it seems highly unlikely, and I honestly didn’t think it would happen to me, I literally paid 800 less at a brick and mortar compared to Amazon for my 3070ti. I paid retail for it but had to buy a junker 750w evga psu with it and paid full tax which was a lot. Unlike newegg and hardly any tax. It can happen to you too! Pay attention to local stock, check daily if you have to. 3090s go for like 3500 here and while I was there I saw someone pay cash for theirs.. oh the insanity..

Will people finally drop the Ngreedia bs? It's not like AMD is any better when it comes to GPU prices.

Crypto is designed to be increasingly harder to mine. As long as that rate exceeds that of GPUs' HP, there's a natural threshold where GPUs will stop being up to the task. Whether that is 1 or 10 years away, I couldn't say.

5nm will trigger just another power efficiency event and triple density, 133mTr/mm2 compared to now 44.. So even if prices are able to normalize. The scalpers and the gpu makers will team up to our decrement. They really need to be investigated for a cartel or fixing prices at this stage. What is this, making gaming video cards and blatantly selling to miners and scalpers first... At least make the GA103 on 6nm 66mTr/mm2 $660.

Hi,
Like to see new stuff but I've yet to see one I can constitute buying at listed prices lol

I'd add to that that miners and others would seize the chance to get those at low price, leaving the rest of us with nothing again.

Short of heavy handed regulation across at least China, Europe and USA that makes it die off or at least stop the constant surge of new cryptocurrencies, I think it's unlikely too.

Granted, I'm just gaming at 1080p 60 Hz, but I'm still using a RX 580 and honestly the only reason I actually want a new graphics card for is folding@home :laugh:
I mean, sure, more bells and whistles might be nice, but like I'm not bothered.

The problem is that they're constantly creating new coins, so it might as well be a never ending process.
