Nvidia GeForce RTX 40: Three new graphics cards presented

Of course, Nvidia not only showed off DLSS 3 last night, but also its new GeForce RTX 40 generation graphics cards. Contrary to what was previously expected, there is no RTX 4070 among them – at least not under this name. Instead, the RTX 4080 appears in two different versions, which differ not only in terms of RAM equipment, but also technically. However, the new flagship is the GeForce RTX 4080 with 24GB of GDDR6X RAM.

The manufacturer gives you all the information on its new generation of graphics card on this dedicated site. The “smaller” model, the GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 GB of RAM, uses the AD104 GPU, while the RTX 4080 with 16 GB of RAM uses the AD103 chip. The flagship, the GeForce RTX 4090, can then peddle the AD102. Nvidia calls its new architecture Ada Lovelace, after a mathematician.

If you’re interested in one of the new graphics cards, hopefully you’ve already saved a lot. Even the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 GB of RAM costs 1,099 euros. The RTX 4080 with 16 GB of RAM can be yours for 1,469 euros. If you want to take a look at the top model, you should have 1,949 euros on the top edge. The RTX 4090 offers 128 SMs, 16,384 FP32 cores, and a 384-bit memory interface. 450 watts is specified as TGP (Total Graphics Power). Nvidia integrates 3rd generation ray tracing units. According to the vendor, these increase ray tracing performance by a factor of 2.8.

The GeForce RTX 4090 goes on sale on October 12, the other two models won’t start until November 2022. All three graphics cards use PCI Express 4.0 and offer three DisplayPort 1.4 connections and one HDMI 2.1. New graphics cards can also decode AV1. Partners like Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and many more have already announced custom builds of the new GeForce RTX 40.

Nvidia explains that the performance of the GeForce RTX 4090 is about twice that of the RTX 3090 Ti. Both RTX 4080s, on the other hand, are two to four times faster than the RTX 3080 Ti, depending on the scenario. However, this information is so general that it is of course not meaningful. You have to wait for independent benchmarks or game measurements with different settings.
