NVIDIA Reveals RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs

The new GPUs will be two to four times faster than the company's previous flagship solutions.

Nvidia revealed its new flagship GPUs at its latest event. First, there's the GeForce RTX 4090 based on Nvidia's new Ada Lovelace architecture. The new GPU brings 24GB of G6X memory. It is said the GPU will be two to four times faster than the RTX 3090 Ti GPU, Nvidia's previous flagship solution. The RTX 4090 GPU will cost $1599 when it launches on October 12th.

The RTX 4080 GPU was also revealed featuring two memory configurations: 12GB and 16GB. This one is said to be two to four times faster than the RTX 3080 Ti. Little is known about the release date, but Nvidia says the cards should launch in November. A GPU with 12GB of G6X memory will cost $899 while the 16GB will cost $1,199.

During the conference, NVIDIA said that the Ada architecture is powered by the third-generation RTX 3, which offers real-time path tracing, plus the third-generation of Deep Learning Super Sampling DLSS.

Other technological innovations:

  • Streaming multiprocessors with up to 83 teraflops of shader power — 2x over the previous generation.
  • Third-generation RT Cores with up to 191 effective ray-tracing teraflops — 2.8x over the previous generation.
  • Fourth-generation Tensor Cores with up to 1.32 Tensor petaflops — 5x over the previous generation using FP8 acceleration.
  • Shader Execution Reordering (SER) that improves execution efficiency by rescheduling shading workloads on the fly to better utilize the GPU’s resources. As significant an innovation as out-of-order execution was for CPUs, SER improves ray-tracing performance up to 3x and in-game frame rates by up to 25%.
  • Ada Optical Flow Accelerator with 2x faster performance allows DLSS 3 to predict movement in a scene, enabling the neural network to boost frame rates while maintaining image quality.
  • Architectural improvements tightly coupled with custom TSMC 4N process technology results in an up to 2x leap in power efficiency.
  • Dual NVIDIA Encoders (NVENC) cut export times by up to half and feature AV1 support. The NVENC AV1 encode is being adopted by OBS, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Discord and more.

In the meantime, NVIDIA also revealed Portal RTX, a new version of the game coming later this year. Learn more here. Don't forget to join our Reddit page and our Telegram channel, follow us on Instagram and Twitter, where we share breakdowns, the latest news, awesome artworks, and more.
