Let's get started with Nvidia. So, obviously, we’ve been covering pretty much everything when it comes to the next generation of GPU's. Every core count that was rumored, any TDP numbers that came up, but I’ve never really discussed the possible release windows of the RTX 4000 series.
Well, That’s because it was pretty much all over the place with different leakers giving us different date ranges. So, I decided to wait for a little while the dust settled and everyone agreed on the same timeframe. The early leaks pointed at a split release for the 3 top-tier cards. The rtx 4090, 4080, and 4070. So each card’s release would be spaced by a month, so that’s 4090 in august, 4080 in September and 4070 after that. Those are all of the launches for 2022. The 4060 would be a CES 2023 launch and of course, anything else would come after.
Now though, the consensus seems to be that those release dates have been pushed by a month. So the 4090 would come in September, 4080 in October, and the 4070 in November. The 4060 launch even would still be at CES. Of course, these release dates dont mean that the cards would be announced a month apart. Just like the 3000 series and the 2000 series before that, the top 3 cards could all be announced at the same time with the timeframe likely being in august. So yeah, there you go! An update on the 4000 series release dates.
Moving on, let’s talk about intel! The 13th generation of their core CPUs is right around the corner, and with the leaks that have been popping out, it looks like a beast. The latest of those leaks is a Sis software benchmark for the i9 13900. This should be a lower clocked, non-overclockable version of the chip. [...]
