Nvidia releases GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 graphics cards
Two years after the launch of the RTX 30 series, Nvidia has released its new RTX 40 series of GPUs. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series features RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 desktop GPUs based on Nvidia's new Ada Lovelace architecture. The new graphics cards will bring a giant leap in performance, more immersive gaming experiences, AI-driven graphics and fast content creation workflows. Thanks to improved DLSS support and powerful hardware, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs will significantly improve the gaming experience.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU comes with 24GB of GDDR6X memory, which the company claims is two to four times faster than the previous-generation flagship GPU, the RTX 3090 Ti. Nvidia also says that the RTX 4090 can deliver up to 100 FPS in 4K gaming while consuming 450W of power, just like the RTX 3090 Ti. The GPU will support Nvidia's new deep learning supersampling technology, DLSS 3, which will further improve performance.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 GPU
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 will be released in two configurations. The first has 16GB GDDR6X memory, 9,728 CUDA cores, and 76 RT cores, and the second has 12GB GDDR6X memory, 7,680 CUDA cores, and 60 RT cores. The 12GB version also has slower memory, with 21Gbps throughput on the 192-bit bus, compared to the 16GB version's 22Gbps throughput on the 256-bit bus. Nvidia says the 16GB RTX 4080 variant is three times faster than the RTX 3080 Ti when using DLSS 3. Meanwhile, the 12GB RTX 4080 variant is faster than the RTX 3090 Ti and consumes less power when using DLSS 3.
