NVIDIA introduced the long-awaited new GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards. The flagship model of the RTX 40 series, which offers up to 4 times more performance compared to previous models and is based on Ada Lovelace architecture: RTX 4090 attracts attention with its features.
“The era of RTX ray tracing and neural processing is in full swing, and our new Ada Lovelace architecture takes it to the next level,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, at the GeForce Beyond: Special Broadcast at GTC event, where the new cards were introduced. .
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 specifications
The flagship of the series appeared with 76 billion transistors and TSMC’s 4 nm fabrication process. In addition to the 3rd generation RT and 4th generation Tensor cores, NVIDIA’s new DLSS 3 technology was announced along with graphics cards with Ada Lovelace architecture.
The RTX 4090 is based on the AD102-300 GPU chip, which houses 16384 CUDA cores, and the operating frequency can go up to 2520 MHz. The graphics card, which has 82.6 TFLOPS and 2.3 times more processing power compared to the RTX 3090, comes with 24 GB GDDR6X memory.
On the memory side, 1TB/s bandwidth is offered, while the 450W TDP value means that the new graphics card consumes more power compared to the RTX 3090 Ti model.
Multi-stream processors with shader power of up to 83 teraflops – 2x the performance of the previous generation.
Third-generation RT cores with up to 191 active ray-tracing teraflops – 2.8 times the performance of the previous generation.
Fourth generation Tensor cores with 1.32 tensor petaflops performance – 5x the performance of the previous generation using FP8 acceleration.
Shader Execution Reordering (SER), which improves compute efficiency by instantly rescheduling shading workloads to better utilize GPU resources. It improves ray tracing performance by 3x and in-game framerates by up to 25 percent.
With 2x faster performance, Ada Optical Flow Accelerator allows DLSS 3 to predict motion in the scene, enabling the neural network to maintain image quality and increase frame rate.
Architectural improvements, tightly coupled with proprietary TSMC 4N process technology, provide up to 2X leaps in power efficiency
Dual NVIDIA Encoder (NVENC) cuts export times in half and adds AV1 support. NVENC AV1 encoding is being adopted by OBS, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, Discord and more.
How much does the GeForce RTX 4090 cost?
The GeForce RTX 4090 price is set at $ 1599, while NVIDIA announced that it will release the card on October 12. Of course, this is the price of the reference card developed by NVIDIA.
GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 GPUs are available as custom cards, including stock clocked and factory-overclocked, from top hardware manufacturers such as ASUS, Colorful, Gainward, Galaxy, GIGABYTE, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac. will be presented.
