Next-gen AMD and Nvidia GPUs just moved one step closer to launch

The upcoming next-gen Nvidia and AMD graphics cards have just been registered at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), bringing them one step closer to launch.

Although this doesn’t mean that all of the listed GPUs will launch this year (or at all), it does give us some insight into the exact models that AMD and Nvidia may be readying for their new lineups. There’s also a hidden surprise that shows Nvidia may not be quite done with the RTX 30-series GPUs just yet.

The EEC is a trademark registry and because of that, it often serves as a source of product leaks. There’s no guarantee that all of the listed products will make it to the market, but the registry works as an indication that the manufacturer is likely to be working on these products. We’ve seen several EEC leaks in the past, and usually, the majority of the products end up being released. Even so, until AMD and Nvidia confirm these, it’s best to maintain a dose of skepticism.

The registration comes from AFOX, a partner for both AMD and Nvidia, which will seemingly plan to produce custom versions of the cards. The company makes other kinds of PC hardware aside from graphics cards, including motherboards, power supply units, and storage. This time, AFOX seems to be getting ready to work on a long list of AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.

First spotted by Twitter leaker Harukaze5719, the EEC listings include the full range of Nvidia’s next-gen RTX 40-series “Ada Lovelace” graphics cards. This means the following GPUs:

  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 Ti
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 Ti
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 Ti
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 Ti
  • Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050

While most of the lineup was expected, the RTX 4090 Ti has been the subject of some speculation. This intensely powerful GPU might instead be a continuation of Nvidia’s RTX Titan series as opposed to an RTX Ti.

Curiously, AFOX has also chosen to list several RTX 30-series graphics cards under the name RTX Super: The GeForce RTX 3090 Super, RTX 3080 Super, RTX 3070 Super, and the RTX 3060 Super. However, given that Nvidia is currently suffering from a major oversupply of graphics cards that it still needs to unload before the next-gen launches, it seems unlikely that it will go back to create even more RTX 30-series GPUs. In fact, some sources speculate that Nvidia may opt to only release a single RTX 40 GPU this year in order to try and sell more of the current-gen cards. AFOX may just be optimistic here, or simply trying to cover all bases.

The company hasn’t snubbed AMD — on the contrary, it registered just about every AMD GPU variant possible. This includes the following:

  • AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT
  • AMD Radeon RX 7900
  • AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT
  • AMD Radeon RX 7800
  • AMD Radeon RX 7700 XT
  • AMD Radeon RX 7700
  • AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT
  • AMD Radeon RX 7600
  • AMD Radeon RX 7500 XT
  • AMD Radeon RX 7500

While we don’t know for a fact that all of these graphics cards will end up getting released, the EEC listings are a good indicator that production is well underway and AMD’s and Nvidia’s board partners are getting ready. With both AMD and Nvidia set to launch new products this year, we’re bound to hear more soon enough.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 vs. AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT: a close call
Two RTX 4070 graphics cards sitting side by side.

Nvidia's new release, the RTX 4070, shakes things up in the GPU market. After a long spell of only releasing overpriced graphics cards, Nvidia seems to have altered its pricing strategy for the RTX 4070. While it's hard to call it cheap, it's certainly affordable, and it offers performance that makes it a good midrange option.

However, Nvidia's latest addition to the ranking of the best graphics cards has an unexpected rival in the previous generation of GPUs. AMD's RX 6950 XT is similarly priced, but can it keep up with the RTX 4070? Check out our benchmarks and find out how these two cards stack up against each other.

Nvidia's RTX 4070 is reportedly right around the corner, but the chipmaker is yet to release any official announcement about the new GPU. It still managed to confirm its existence in a stealthy way.

The latest addition to Nvidia's lineup of the best graphics cards appeared in a slide that shows off Nvidia Reflex. The technology is coming to Counter-Strike 2, and the RTX 4070 is most likely coming to various retailers in just a few days. Did Nvidia really intend to reveal it in such a low-key way?
