With leaks of NVIDIA’s RTX 3080 released a couple of days ago, German PC news outlet Igor’s Lab, made an approximated estimate of the timeline schedule for NVIDIA’s production of the RTX3080 and RTX3090 based on recent revelations and NVIDIA’s release history. Some of the points makes sense. but the main take here is that the company is reportedly intending to launch the RTX 3000 series GPUs in September of this year. With leaks of the coolers already surfacing, it can be be inferred that the timeline is in sync with NVIDA’s apparent schedule especially the timing of its reveal.
The schedule reveals the start of the process with the Bill of Materials release in May/June and that Engineer validation and Design validation have also started this June. During these stages, NVIDIA can stil make changes to the products design before they push to settling with a final design. It is in July that working samples will be available and this is when it could land on the hands of industry partners for validation. Once a BIOS is released to the OEM, mass production will commence.
A media event will then be scheduled for September with review samples already making or have made their way to media partners where the product will then be available to stores shortly after with NVIDIA’s own store seeing first availability.
