Nvidia has revealed its brand-new RTX 40 series GPUs at GTC 2022, two years after the RTX 30 series. 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 deliver a massive leap in performance, a more immersive gaming experience, AI-powered graphics, and fast content creation workflow. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs will significantly improve the gameplay experience, thanks to improved DLSS support and powerful hardware.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 GPU comes with 24GB of GDDR6X memory, and the company claims it is two to four times faster than its previous-gen flagship GPU, RTX 3090 Ti. Nvidia also says that RTX 4090 can deliver up to 100 FPS in 4K games while consuming 450W power, just like the RTX 3090 Ti. The GPU will support Nvidia’s new deep-learning super-sampling technique DLSS 3, which will improve performance even more.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 will be launched in two configurations. The first one features 16GB GDDR6X memory, 9,728 CUDA cores, and 76 RT cores. The second comes with 12GB GDDR6X memory, 7,680 CUDA cores, and 60 RT cores.
The 12GB variant also has slower memory with 21Gbps throughput over a 192-bit bus, compared to 22 Gbps throughput over a 256-bit bus on the 16GB variant. Nvidia says the 16GB RTX 4080 variant is up to three times faster than RTX 3080 Ti while using DLSS 3. Meanwhile, the 12GB RTX 4080 variant is faster than RTX 3090 Ti and consumes less power when using DLSS 3.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 is set to launch on October 12th, and RTX 4080 will be launching in November. After some confusion over Indian pricing, Nvidia has finally shared the official price of these GPUs for the country. GeForce RTX 4090 – Rs 1,55,000, GeForce RTX 4080 (16GB) – Rs 1,16,000, and GeForce RTX 4080 (12GB) – Rs 87,000.
