Nvidia’s Next-Gen Blackwell GPUs Raise Speculation and Potential for AMD
Nvidia’s forthcoming next-generation Blackwell graphics cards, slated as the successors to the current Lovelace GeForce GPUs and expected to debut in 2025, might take an unconventional turn according to emerging rumors. These rumors, while emanating from a Chinese source and backed by a regular leaker, suggest a potential departure from the usual product lineup.
The rumors, initially reported by VideoCardz and substantiated by leaker ‘Kopite7kimi’, claim that Nvidia’s Blackwell GPUs will omit the typical x04 model and instead feature an x05 variant. This change implies that Nvidia will bypass the equivalent of the AD104 chip present in the RTX 4070, opting for a GB205 (GB denoting Blackwell) model.
