news hardware GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080: release date, price, power, everything about the next graphics cards from nvidia!
After months of waiting and a lot of rumours, Nvidia has finally lifted the lid on its new RTX 4000 graphics cards. Now, what do the RTX 4090, 4080 look like, their prices and their release dates.
- Price and release date of the RTX 4090, the most powerful graphics card in history
- Price and release date of the RTX 4080, the graphics card for demanding gamers
- The RTX 4000 and RTX 3000 will coexist for a while
- DLSS 3.0 the secret (and exclusive) weapon of the RTX 4000
Price and release date of the RTX 4090, the most powerful graphics card in history
Although it probably won’t equip your personal PC or even your neighbor’s to surpass, the one we all hoped for, the object of all wishes and all fantasies, the one that will guide this new generation of graphics cards towards the sun and beyond, the RTX 4090 , is finally formalized and promises to be, as expected, a monster of power.
We already knew that, but the third generation of GPU for RTX cards is named after Ada Lovelacea computer pioneer, known for having created the first computer program.
This mastered chip is etched at 4nm by TSMC and will offer nothing less than 76 billion transistors, that is, practically three times more than the previous generation of Amps (28 billion transistors, 8nm etching). In the following graph we can clearly see the stratospheric jump between the generations of Turing, Ampère and Ada Lovelace.
With the RTX 4090 we can theoretically expect more than double the performance of what the already surpassed RTX 3090 Ti offered us and according to the graphics offered by Nvidia during its conference, the card will offer a 450W TDP, much higher than the 350 W of the 3090 Ti. Crazy features that pave the way for gaming up to 8K HDR at 60fpsthat’s all !
The RTX 4090 in brief :
- 24GB of GDDR6X
- 16,384 CUDA cores
- 2 to 4 times more powerful than an RTX 3090 Ti
- TDP 450W – Recommended power supply: 850W
- Price: $1599 (€1949)
- Available October 12
Price and release date of the RTX 4080, the graphics card for demanding gamers
If indeed there were 3 graphics cards announced during this Nvidia Keynote, in addition to the RTX 4090, not 4070, but two versions of the RTX 4080, one with 12 GB of GDDR6X and one with 16 GB of GDDR6X. These are on average two to four times more powerful than the current RTX 3080 Ti.
The RTX 4080 in a nutshell :
- 12/16GB GDDR6X
- 7680/9728 CUDA cores
- 2 to 4 times more powerful than an RTX 3080 Ti
- TDP 295W/320W – Recommended power supply: 700W/750W
- Price: $899 (€1099)/$1199 (€1469)
- Available in November
The RTX 4000 and RTX 3000 will coexist for a while
With the phenomenal stock of RTX 3000 cards, we asked ourselves the legitimate question of how Nvidia was going to manage coexistence between these two generations. Jensen Huang quickly gave the answer, the two families will exist in parallel, so the offer will start at $329 for the RTX 3060 and go up to $1599 (€1949) for the RTX 4090 (price without taxes always).
As with the RTX 3000 series, the RTX 4000 will be available in Founders Edition builds or custom builds from a dozen storied partners, including Asus, Colorful, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, or even Zotac. .
The first to communicate are none other than MSI, announcing no less than 4 series of cards dedicated to the RTX 4000, including the intriguing SUPRIM LIQUID series, which will offer closed-loop liquid cooling. All information is available on the
DLSS 3.0 the secret (and exclusive) weapon of the RTX 4000
Two years after the release of DLSS 2.0 and its revision 2.1, DLSS 3.0 is also making an appearance and will be reserved for 4000 series cards.. As a reminder, DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) allows you, thanks to artificial intelligence, to improve the quality of your games and ray tracing at resolutions much higher than what your machine could theoretically offer you.
DLSS 3.0 is much more efficient than the previous generation, it will be able to anticipate the next images and it will be 4 times faster to generate them.
To illustrate all this, Nvidia relied on in-game footage of Cyberpunk 2077, Microsoft Flight Simulator, or even a new mode for Valve’s excellent Portal, soberly titled Portal RTX, which will be free for all owners of the original game.
The latter could be achieved with a new tool called “RTX Remix” that has the ability to remix an old game to make a clean, modern copy. Which gives regulars of the remastered versions cold sweats.
Obviously, this is all just the beginning of a new adventure and we will be sure to come back to these various announcements in the coming days with details on the dates of the RTX 4080, prices in euros, availability, performance, etc., etc. .
