Board Partners Are Anticipating Launch Of High-End RTX 50 Models In The Fourth Quarter

NVIDIA is reportedly targeting a fourth quarter release for its RTX 50 GPU series. While the Data Center Blackwell GPU has been unveiled, its release date is unconfirmed. The spotlight is now on the highly anticipated GeForce RTX 50 series, especially among gamers.

In January, NVIDIA unveiled three new GeForce RTX 40 SUPER graphics cards, offering a mid-range product refresh for high-end enthusiast-class GPUs. Currently, the RTX 40 series consists of 12 models, down from the RTX 30 lineup which had 20 models. However, excluding the LHR (Lite Hash Rate) series, the number of SKUs is almost equal. This shows that NVIDIA has finalized the series so far.

As reported by Money UDN, board partners are expecting the release of high-end RTX 50 models in the fourth quarter, with a particular focus on the RTX 5080 and RTX 5090 cards. It's important to acknowledge that while these names are likely correct, NVIDIA is still in the process of finalizing the specifications. The company has also been known to make last-minute adjustments or cancel products before they debut in the market.

A prominent NVIDIA insider, who is highly regarded for accurate leaks, agrees that the RTX 50 launch is expected for this year. Copycat initially speculated about Blackwell featuring GDDR7 memory and hinted at a 512-bit memory bus for the largest GB202 GPU.

Speculations suggest that the GB202 GPU may include up to 192 streaming multiprocessors, while the GB203 may have half that number (96 SMs). If NVIDIA maintains the current configuration for its FP32 (CUDA) cores, it will be 24,576 and 12,888 cores respectively. However, to ensure favorable performance, it is expected that neither the RTX 5090 nor the 5080 will feature these full configurations.
