The most anticipated Nvidia graphics card lineup has finally been announced. This is following through on many months of leaks and rumours. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards have finally been formally introduced by the firm after Nvidia previously stated that the eagerly anticipated lineup would be showcased at GTC 2022.
This update includes improvements for Nvidia RTX, AI, and Omniverse with new chips to power them. RacerX, a simulation engine that runs on a single GPU and has no baked-in features, is shown off in the stunning RTX Racer demo.
Nvidia revealed the Ada Lovelace architecture as predicted. It contains 76 billion transistors and Micron GDDR6X memory using the TSMC 4N technology.
In order to optimise RT computation, it has also included a new streaming multiprocessor with shader execution reordering. with performance improvements of 2-3 times. The 4080 and 4090 both aspire to outperform the 3090 Ti by a factor of two.
Along with the new GPUs, Nvidia now includes DLSS 3. It creates new frames instead of just pixels, meshing the successive frames to enhance their appearance. By easing the load, this seeks to avoid any CPU bottlenecks. With the excellent but GPU-hogging Cyberpunk 2077 showcased, we were shown an improvement from 20–30 frames per second to 90 FPS.
The RTX 4090 will be available on October 12, 2022, starting at around $1,599.
