Nvidia and AMD are prepping their Geforce RTX 40 series and Radeon RX 7000 lineup of graphics cards. Along with the Ryzen 7000 and 13th gen Intel Raptor Lake Core processors, these launches are among the most anticipated events in the consumer tech industry.
Although we are a few weeks away before the next-gen graphics cards get revealed, leaks surrounding these products has been present on the internet since 2021. However, major information on the upcoming graphics cards, including specs, SKUs (Stock Keeping Units), and performance metrics, have leaked recently online.
Both Team Green and Team Red are designing competitive offerings for their upcoming launch. The next-gen GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) will come with exceptional gaming performance and cost efficiency.

Launch dates and availability
The RTX 40 series video cards will introduce next-gen GPUs within a few weeks. Nvidia is expected to host the Geforce Beyond event at GTX 2022 on September 20. The company has said they have something special in store for PC gamers at the event.
However, they are yet to give any official information on the launch dates of these upcoming graphics cards.
AMD have not revealed a launch or reveal date for the RX 7000 series GPUs yet. They revealed their Ryzen 7000 processors and will be introducing them on September 27. Although we got a glimpse of RX 7000 and its gaming performance, the company is not vocal about when we can expect to see them on shelves.
No official information on the pricing of these next-gen GPUs has been revealed yet. However, based on a few leaks, we can expect the RTX 40 series and RX 7000 graphics cards to be more expensive as compared to the last-gen.
It was recently revealed that OEM partners will be reducing stock availability to suit current demand levels. Thus, the next-gen graphics cards from either company might become costlier than before.
However, how AMD and Nvidia cards fare against each other in terms of price-to-performance ratios remains to be seen as no concrete information has surfaced yet.
Although no official information on the specifications of the upcoming GPUs has been revealed yet, data has been leaked online by several reputed leakers in the industry.
Recently. Tweeter @Kepler_L2 outlined the possible details of the upcoming GPUs, including the SKUs, their clock speeds, amount of VRAM, memory speeds, TDP, probable prices, and more.
While the leaked data may sound credible, it is worth noting that they are leaks and the reality might be different from what the insiders revealed before the launch of these products.
No performance comparison data of the RTX 40 series and RX 7000 lineup of GPUs have been revealed on the internet yet. Thus, gamers will have to wait a while before weighing the offerings from Team Green and Team Red to arrive at a final decision.
Overall, the RTX 40 series and RX 7000 GPUs seem promising. However, the available data is not enough to judge any offerings in these lineups.
