Igor’s Lab has learned from people familiar with the matter that NVIDIA’s RTX 3080/3090 is currently in the design validation testing phase. Combined with NVIDIA’s past production history, Igor’s Lab estimates that RTX 3080/3090 will enter mass production phase in late August and be fully available in September.
According to the schedule, the RTX 30 Series of new cards is currently in the initial material preparation phase, with engineering verification testing (EVT) starting from the end of June to early July, design verification testing (DVT) in early to mid-July, a lit sample card in mid-July or late July, and an electromagnetic interference test (EIT) at the end of July and early August.
In early August, the RTX 30 series will complete the BIOS development and design, then put into large-scale mass production, and finally in September officially released, followed by the evaluation of the release, product launch. Interestingly, it was previously reported that the NVIDIA RTX 30 series will be released in September and is now being further validated, with AMD’s next-generation high-end card based on the RDNA 2 architecture, Big Navi Core, also around September.
