NVIDIA RTX 4080, 4090, 4050: Release Date, Rumours & more


Since the launch of RTX 3080, there has been a huge debate between people regarding the feedback and experience. As some of the people have been fortunate enough to find a reliable seller pricing a decent sum of money, most fans have either been disappointed because of the whole “bot scalp” or due to lack of stock/ delayed shipping.

This could be one of the main reasons why the audience has already moved on to the next thing. A lot of people are already wondering about the launch of the RTX 40 series. Here’s what we know-

The physical dimensions will most likely be the same in the RTX 40 series. The TDP of RTX 4080 will most likely be around 200W, similar to the recently launched RTX 3080. However, the RTX 2080 came with 320W which is not carried forth anymore.

RTX 3080 has an increase of 75MHz GPU base clock. So we can expect, if not the same, a similar increase in the RTX 4080. The initial variant of the RTX 4080 is expected to pack a graphics memory of 10GB.

Performance-wise, there was around an 85% performance boost between RTX 3080 compared to the RTX 2080. But one of the main reasons due for such a massive upgrade is the gap between the release dates (2 years). As we are expecting RTX 4080 next year, you might not see the same drastic increase. However, with every release, NVIDIA is edging more towards gaming and support for higher gaming quality.

RTX 2080 was released on September 20, 2018, and RTX 3080 was released on September 20, 2020. Officials have been releasing the first variant of the series on the third Thursday of September month. So we are expecting the RTX 4080 to be launched in September 2022. The release of RTX 4090 will be followed after a month.

But the launch of the RTX 4050 will be a much-delayed launch, most likely by the end of the year or at the start of 2023. We will update this article as we receive further information on the RTX 40 series.
